NewBeeDrone SavageBee 3" Toothpick Frame
The SavageBee frame was specially designed to fit any brushless NewBeeDrone whoop flight controller to build a lightweight 1s or 2s toothpick micro drone.
At 2.5mm thick, the base plate is durable but also has no unnecessary structural weight from the precise cutouts.
Easy to Build
Other 3 inch toothpick frames require meticulous, difficult, and tiny soldering. With the NewBeeDrone Hummingbird Pro and BeeBrain BLV3 flight controllers, building this toothpick is easy! The only soldering necessary will be to connect the motors to the ESC. The BeeBrain BLV3 has large soldering pads to accommodate for custom builds.

This is an awesome replacement frame for a toothpick I build a couple years ago. More than enough spare screws to take care of the build. Very clean with a podracer aio.
had some very fast crashes today and its still ok
Nice durable looking frame, I've had several light crashes into rubble and it still looks new.
I've built mine with the Happy Model X12 ELRS AIO FC, 1202 NewBeeDrone Flow motors, and Goober canopy. The frame doesn't allow enough clearance for the motor connectors on the FC. I had to cut off all the plastic around motor connector pins and solder the motor wires to the pins. The Goober canopy fits the FC nicely but the ceramic SMT ELRS antenna just touches the canopy. I'm considering using a Dremel tool carefully cut out part of the canopy to leave more clearance for the antenna. This will prevent the canopy from damaging the antenna during a crash but will also leave the antenna a little bit more exposed.
But overall, very happy with the frame
You can get away with very little filtering using this frame in a 2S build. It's also quite versatile re. accommodating AIO boards of different kinds. And it looks nice, too!
I only wish there was a DXF or STEP file available for it to make designing TPU parts less of a hassle.
Did a transplant for my 1s crux3 lr and it was a perfect surgery. 1202.5 11500 kv motors will make it a smooth backyard ripper. Fpv Camera mount needs improvement though
