4 inch BEE

This is my first 4 inch build. It was designed to run with 3s LIPO's because I have many laying around from when I started flying.
3D printed parts are available on http://www.thingiverse.com/tbraber
The motors I used where the Racerstar rebranded version of the DYS SE1806.
The TX is a 250mw 5v mini transmitter from Hobbyking but that one is not available any more.

The motors are soft-mounted with 1,5mm silicone rubber sheet. I put it on both sides of the arms.
I replaces the stock (2.8mm) camera lens with a 2.5mm Foxeer lens. This gives a very satisfying result for a 10 dollar camera.

I have tried it, but I really notice the extra weight.
I am planning to buy a Mobius Mini and make a 30deg titl mount for it. That should fit.
The 1806 are at it's max now with these props. When using two blade props I can run 4S but with these 4 blades, the motors get very/too warm using 4S.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
