If crashed hard a couple times and of course repairs are part of the hobby. Canopy broke and cut one of the motor wires. Bent a couple props, haha Great for learning the software too. I've lost one of the rx antenna, can u guys send me a new one, haha. Really cool tho
Drone never flew out of the box, would arm and then disarm immediately. NBD customer support is lacking, as usual, blaming the customer, slow response, etc. so now I have a $150 paperweight.
If you go with beeceiver option your foolish and it’s not flyable for a bit cause beeceiver is crap and binding is headache I gave up and thru csfr into it. Another third party Frsky rx that doesn’t function. Don’t like the full size immortal weight but nano immortal coming soon. Glad went 2s route, still enjoyable on 1S but fast on 2S. Don’t buy the y cable from NBD the dual 1S jst plug from emax tinyhawk 2 race is best. Oh you’ll want to change the canopy, it’s fast enough for flight with higher camera angle than the fixed position goober canopy. Was a plus had choice of spare cams to upgrade that as well.
This is my second savage bee. Lost the first one in a giant tree. Pretty powerful if you're transitioning from a tiny whoop. Can take an absolute beating. Smashed in into some metal poles and bent the motor up but it bent back into place easily enough and was back in the air before no time at all. My favorite thing about it is how zippy it is. Keeps up to a full size rc buggy and is such a silent flyer it makes my 5 inch sound like the sky is falling. Me and my bro both have 1 and run packs all day at the park and have a blast. Highly suggested.
Ok..it was hard to get it flying but it's moved to my #1 playscape flyer. After replacing the Beeceiver and upgrading the vtx antennae, it's a smooth and nimble drone. Flys longer than some of my whoops on 1s and is easily the fastest on 2s. Very agile and easy to fly through tight spaces such as playscape and tree branches. It's a good little drone after some work.
