Explore the vastness of the sky and enjoy the freedom of flight with the ExplorerBee. 

Designed from the start to be a great flying wing platform for FPV flying. The ExplorerBee's unique camera bay, large central compartment, lightweight EPO foam combines to make this flying wing an FPV pilots dream.

The frontal section of the fuselage is crafted to fit your choice of action camera to give you an unobstructed field of view to fully immerse the FPV pilot. The outer wings have compartments to fit your radio receiver in one and video transmitter in the other to help separate the electronic noise.

The ExplorerBee has a smooth flight envelope, the wing has carbon spars and an RSB22 airfoil that enable a stable slow speed flight perfect for FPV, But when you want to push the limits it performs as well as a combat flying wing.

Endurance is another feature of FPV flying and with the ExplorerBee's large battery compartment you can use anywhere between 2600 to 3600mAh 3S LiPoly giving the pilot many minutes of flying adventure. Partnered with a brushless outrunner and electronic speed controller and your choice of many different FPV electronics and you're ready to Explore and own the sky.

With the ExplorerBee the adventure begins here.

The Overbox got crunched on one end from the long trip from Troutdale, OR but for the most part the air filled bags and loose paper protected the inner box with no visible damage. The contents however, took a shock and crunched one of the locating lug on one end of the wing, Same as 'Old Pro' mentioned in his review. They need to protect the ends a bit better! There was extra(?) nose and covers in case of crashes or modifying interior of the craft, I suppose. All contents listed on the website were in bags floating around in the box as well as a roll of fiber-tape, possibly to reinforce the foam airfoil of the wing. The ONLY THING NOT INCLUDED were any resemblance of "Instructions"! There are NOT enough for the rank beginner included on the website or in the download files! I see 'Old Pro' had gotten some instructions(?), below. I can only think the 'Ricardo' had CG problems because I can only assume he wasn't using a Go Pro camera in the nose which is pretty heavy? We shall see how it all turns out after construction...….

Install the aileron horns after installing the servo and pushrod. Tail heavy with a runcam2 and 2250 battery, tried to move the motor forward but still heavy, had to add weights. Cg is in the finger hole.

11-05-16: I'm running into information and quality problems with the Explorer Bee. 1) BE VERY CAREFUL in assembling the pushrod arrangement, because the very stiff pushrods have no adjustable clevis, the elevon horns are glued on, and the servos are buried rather deep in the thick wing. This means you have only the servo arms available to adjust the elevons, and, once you glue in the servos, you are stuck with your setup. 2) There is no surface area info in the instructions, so you'll have to calculate your own (providing this info is SOP on most models), and it's important since this seems to be a rather "heavy" craft. I'm finding that achieving the proper CG REQUIRES a very heavy battery. 3) The prop adapter doesn't have quite enough thread available to properly secure the prop. 4) The four props I received were HORRIBLY unbalanced. All four needed a LOT of trimming to get them balanced - and I use two different balancers to make sure I get it right. 5) Be very careful gluing up and installing the motor mount; it's not easy to see the required down thrust. (The 7-part motor cage should have been labeled to make assembly easier.) 6) The alignment tongue on one wing was cracked off, probably from banging back and forth in the box during shipping or handling.

10-22-16. Unboxing; no CG info or instructions! But, in looking through ALL THE WAREHOUSES, finally found CG info and an instruction sheet at just the Euro Warehouse under the FILES tab. The ARF came double-boxed and in good condition with all parts as described in video. Nice touch on the provided fiberglass-reinforced tape, and all the extra elevons/wingtips/front faces/props/motor covers/and canopies. You do have to solder on our own battery connection, as noted in printed description. More to follow.
