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!
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

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.
