Hello all, I just started to build my first quad. Bumble Bee quadricopter from HobbyCool.com.

I also picked up the ST450 metal quad frame to play around with. Looks very solid.

Hopefully I will have the Bumble Bee done by tomorrow and post some pics.

If that frames ALL metal then it must be heavy! :eek:
Other wise nice looking set up!

are you referring to the ST 450 folding frame? I don't know the cost to it as it was sent to me just for testing purposes. the bumble bee can be bought at hobbycool for $368 with everything included.

There is also something wrong with your currency converter on the site
BumbleBee 550 QuadCopter MultiCopter Kits $119US but change to Australia dollars and its $140.29 at the current exchange rate $119US should be $111AUD

Hello Glen , I have emailed the site admin to look into the currency converter. Hopefully they will have fixed soon.

Here is some more pics of my quad :)

Thanks mate,

Whats your opinion on the build quality (Bias aside of course)

#14 HobbyCool_tech Feb 29, 2012 05:03 PM

The build quality is excellent Glen. this is my first Quad build so I dont have anything to compare it to. But in my opinion its very nice. I however do have lots of experience in rc helicopters.
