Better than the usual Newbee Experience

Unlike my previous experience with the acrobee65 that showed up inoperable, and they failed to replace, I took the insurance out on this because Newbee isn’t known for quality or customer service. I also ordered the ultra naked air unit just for this drone because the under performance of the acrobee75 with full-size air unit was a huge disappointment. The combination of ultra naked o3 and Savagebee is very nice. Park cruising I could get close to 5 minutes of flight time. More aggressive flying will lower that, but the power to weight ratio is nice. The problem with this configuration lies is the o3 cage provided being brittle, and when the cheap material breaks, it makes the o3 unit very vulnerable. After a couple days, I decided it wasn’t worth the lose, so I took out the ultra naked and installed the normal o3. The weight definitely brings down the experience. Handling and flight times are cut. It’s still a fun craft, but it hurts to know how much better it could be with a stronger o3 cage.
The pros: responsive, fast, easy set up,
The cons: low quality materials used for 03 cages

I would only recommend buying this if you have access to a 3d printer. If not, they’re going to nickel and dime their customers with these cages. If you have a 3d printer or a durable o3 cage that will fit, this is a must have. I’ve been using the remaining acrobee75 cages, and I like them. It puts the props in view and condenses the center of mass.

Great drone.

Flies like my 4 inch. Great small package.

Jason Murphy
Fun little bugger.

I've out 10-12 packs and love it. Agile and fluid flying - decent battery times on a 550mah, love the 03 air unit.
