I had a previous whoop from NewBeeDrone imported to europe at much cost, trusting I would get a quality product, but this time... the frame is crazy fragile.
First crash on concrete, not even going fast, and the frame is broken in two places.
I have to say, that it flies very well, but this frame is way too fragile to be viable.
When I looked at replacement for the frame, the bad reviews are there...
NewBeeDrone AcroBee BeeBrainBL Brushless V2 BNF - Frsky
I'm really surprised at how much hype on Youtube all the other "Whoops" are getting while not so much for this little guy. It's an absolute tank in my humble opinion. Received 2 for Christmas. And as a newbie pilot this thing has crashed so many time into so many things and still kept on flying. A month in Angle. Past 3 weeks in Acro. I've cracked the canopy and frame once. You'll find stress cracks here and there, but nothing that will stop it from flying. I once crashed into a dog bowl full of water! Pulled it out as fast as I could, unplugged the battery, and dunked it into a sack of raw rice. After a day of letting it dry the quad was a little glitchy in that the OSD would disappear or flicker after a crash. But that mofo still took off and still flew just fine. Left it alone for a week while flying my second one. No more glitching. Maybe on a hard crash the video feed will flicker, but man talk about bang for your buck. Camera, to me is really nice. It's not HD, duh. But......compared to some of the other reviews of other Whoops, I'll take this one all day long. I've taken this thing high up beyond the tree tops and at a surprisingly pretty good distance. As long as the winds aren't too strong the thing handles it. Agile enough to do SPLIT S's! Matched up with my Orqa DVR - couldn't be happier. Perfect little trainer. So much so I bought 5 MORE!
Figuring out how to bind the built in spi receiver to my frsky d16 transmitter was a pain. But all I had to do was change receiver type to spi:Frsky_X, put my transmitter in bind and in CLI type bind_rx then type save.
This micro machine is a blast -- easy bind-and-fly with full BetaFlight configuration, brushless motors, and all the trimmings. Turtle mode works great. ESCs are S-H-40 and came with JESC.
Flight times around 3 minutes on the NBD Nectar 300 batteries. Motors stay cool so it's easy to run back-to-back batteries.
Note that the FrSky Rx reports telemetry, but the battery voltage sensor is not connected. The VTx OSD has all the goods. Range is solid with the included antennas.
I have beat this thing into so many walls, couches, and stairs -- it's holding up remarkably well. The cockroach frames aren't expensive or difficult to replace. I am ruined for brushed whoops.
