Note: Binding process. power up the drone 3 times, on the third time you plug in power, the ELRS Receiver will get into binding mode. We are still trying to work on the ELRS firmware and make it able to just click the boot button to get into bind mode. Will get this update in the near future.
Check out the video below CiottiFPV show you how to get into bind mode. - Thanks bro for showing this. lol
U.S based company with no contract phone number… extremely overpriced for a 65mm whoop whose available options are limited to newbeedrone’s proprietary connectors. Vtx range is less than beta fpv 65 meteor pro in addition to it being an inferior quality. (Disclaimer) I paid more money so that I could have a US company that potentially could help me, if I needed… WRONG!! no contact phone number and they answer emails when they feel like it.
Customer service maybe the worst I’ve ever experienced! As of October 28, 2023 you’re paying for $100 for an all in one flight controller that comes with motors with such a high KV you can’t get 2 1/2 minute flight times! And if you can, I wouldn’t know as the second or third day I owned the Blv 4 Acrobee 65 Elrs soldering pad on the negative side of the board broke off… the Stock tuning is pretty good for the few flights I actually got to experience albeit, all less than three minutes. I do like the field of view, or at least the way the canopy sits on the frame where I can see my props.
All in all, waste of money for what you get… no customer support, I’m extremely dissatisfied. Motor build quality, really nice, cockroach frame is durable.
5 in 1 AIO fc___ trash, at least if your running 1s. I considered other 65 mm whoops on the market and after a little research realized that you pay $60 more to have less customer support than anything made or shipped from China which is horrible to say is an American. Beta FPV and happymodel have comparable drones that cost $60 less which if you put in to perspective that you can buy for 0802 motors for less than $60 to potentially change the KV to your own preference, if you were dissatisfied, or experimenting.
I feel ripped off by this company, and that’s my honest review at least until my situation gets rectified.
Was really excited for this whoop. Got it in the mail. Brought it to work. Knew from past bricking experiences with NewBee whoops that I had to get the firmware from the product site on NewBeeDrone.com, so off I went. Downloaded the firmware for the whoop with the ELRS 3. Flashed the firmware and….. I figured out I got that firmware was from the wrong damn whoop page. The Hummingbird ELRS 3 that I downloaded wasn’t the right firmware. I was on a very similar product page, but not the exact right page.
These whops seem really solid and they look super fun. My problem with the whoop being bricked is 100% user error. My problem with the whoop though is that these these things are too dang easy to brick by selecting the wrong firmware. I’d love to play with one of these, but I think I’m done buying them.
The camera quality is subpar compared to other tiny whoops this size. Had to re-solder two motors after the first flight. It flies well though.
It would be nice if you shipped it with the ELRS 3.0.0 firmware aboard. My understanding is that pretty much all transmitters these days have ELRS 3 onboard.
This drone is now my hands down absolute favorite. This little guy is super responsive and fun to fly not to mention fast. My only small grip is that I wish you could tilt the camera a bit more, that and the camera isn't the best but that's the same with almost all the little guys. The frame has held up to much use and abuse and just keeps going. I fly this guy more than my 5".
