The Mosquito BLV3 BNF
The NewBeeDrone Mosquito is an open prop nano that uses 40mm whoop propellers. Perfect for outdoor park and yard flying, the Mosquito is a nano drone you definitely have to try!
Originally, the Mosquito frame was released as a standalone drop-in frame for the NewBeeDrone AcroBee65 and Hummingbird Pro BNFs. Due to popular demand, we've released the Mosquito as a BNF.
Why Go Open Prop?
Ducts are great for preventing accidental damage from crashing whoops. However, they add a lot of weight and drag, decreasing flight performance. The Mosquito has open props while still having the footprint of a 75mm whoop.

Love it!!! Love the sturdiness of the frame and the FC V3 is the best NewBeeDrone has put out so far
I must’ve gotten a dud because mine flies like garbage. It wobbles and feels horribly underpowered. I’ve gone over everything…screws, gummies, canopy, etc and can’t figure out why. I expected much more for $150. This should’ve come with the other style canopy because the little piece that holds the camera in the goober canopy breaks way too easily. Also….that bee eye camera is horrendous in comparison to something like a caddx ant or runcam nano 3. Video is way too dark/muddy and blurry
Bought the 'Skeeter after flying the Savage Bee for a few weeks because I loved it so much; the Mosquito is crazy fast for its size and makes for an excellent indoor whoop or backyard racing rig. Put it down pretty hard a few times and it just keeps getting up, super resilient because of the extremely low weight. The stock tune is fast on the throttle and best suited for racing, but if you play with rates a bit it can also make for a decent freestyle quad. Really enjoying the NBD micros, keep up the good work!
This is more so pointed to anyone wanting to modify this quad... I use crossfire and run props out/reverse rotation. The process of adding a remote receiver to this flight controller requires the correct plug adapter and the removal of a microscopic 0 ohm component on the board...a real pain, but possible. Then I spent hours, upon hours trying to get this quad into the air after re-flashing the esc's to a reverse rotation -no other change. At this point, a week or so into ownership, I have a paper weight. It's never been in the air. I've worked with Newbeedrone customer support, trying anything they can recommend and nothing worked. For my use this thing is a dud. Sad to say that after a long run of products I've owned from Newbeedrone, I'll most likely stay away from their kits and just keep to their excellent batteries, canopies, and props.
Had a good time early this at a neighborhood park flying the mosquito. Ordered another to convert to a toothpick and keep the extra motors and frame for the mosquito. The flight controller is fantastic.
