A new 3" project from NewBeeDrone. Buzz Buzz.
NewBeeDrone StingerBee, a 120mm 3" micro built to compete with the big boys.


  • This is a tiny build! Regular-sized ESCs likely will not fit. A 4-in-1 ESC like the LittleBee 4x is recommended. I used ESCs that are smaller than normal LittleBees and it was a tight fit.
  • I used a DTFc, which is a combination PDB and flight controller, this allowed me to use slightly shorter standoffs
  • The StingerBee is built for a full-size camera like the HS1177. My shipment of cameras was delayed, so I decided to use a micro cam I had around.

I wish I had DVR of slamming it full-throttle into a house.

Watch as I build this tiny FPV speedster from start to finish, and weigh in at under 230g AUW!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
