FuriBee GT 215MM Fire Dancer sets your heart on fire with the top configuration like X215 Pro and dramatic improvements. The durability of the drone has been optimized since the aircraft has a chassis with 5mm thick arm. The DShot ESC supports 4 x 35A large current, which means that you can enjoy flying with 100 percent throttle.
The most amazing thing is that each of the 2306 2750KV brushless motors can generate up to 2kg thrust, pushing the thrust-to-weight ratio to a new high. With the 960H camera, you can truly enjoy FPV racing.

Main Features:
● 215mm wheelbase full carbon fiber frame with CNC aluminum alloy fuselage, 5mm super thick arm
● High-performance OMNIBUS F4 FC has 32K gyro sampling speed, and integrated OSD
● 4-in-1 BLHeli - S 35A ESC uses DShot protocols, and allows you to fly at full throttle
● Extraordinary propulsion system - 2306 2750KV brushless motor and 5048 three-blade propeller
● 960H camera with 2.1mm lens for 5.8G real-time FPV within up to 1.5km range

looks to be a monster! I still funnily enough prefer the design of the x215 pro it is supposed to improve upon (and I'm not a fan of the pink). But specs wise... pretty damn impressive. Hope it doesn't make me regret my purchase of x215 though x215 is cheaper and I've already stretched my budget when including all the extras I bought to go with it so I doubt this is within range anyway for me.

The photos appear to show that the GT 220 has a 1-piece frame but the GT 215 has removable arms.
If that is correct, a photo of the bottom bottom of the GT 215 would be useful to see how the the arms are attached.

The frame seems to be the TransTEC Lightning Race 215mm. It has two screws per arm.

Seems to be very interesting but I a little bit afraid with the gyro sensitivity

The IMU MPU6000 is more robust to noise than the ICM20689 wich is known to be sensitive so are the FC & motors Soft-mounted ? Otherwise did the quad risks to suffers of the giro sensitivity ?

Has anyone received a legit shipping date? I feel bad for the people who has been dealing with this a month longer than I have I bet when the 22nd comes it will just be pushed back again. Sorta regretting my decision to get this and not just build another quad, I think im done with gearbest and banggood its not worth saving a few $

First shipping date was late Oct, then changed to early Nov, mid Nov and now its late Nov.
I have asked FuriBee on their official Facebook page when they expect to be ready to ship (3 times now) and have not -yet- received a useful reply.

Looks like the 1080P statement is a mistake - can anyone confirm?

the 2 videos on youtube show that the fpv feed is noisy does anyone have one to confirm that this is the norm?

So after 12-14 packs through this quad, I can confirm a few things:
1. Lines in video are present, and definitely come from esc. I'll try a low esr cap next.
2. Make sure the bell screws aren't too tight. That plus AndyRc's fixes make this quad reliable. They cost ZERO dollars.
3. Floaty. Super floaty. Did I mention floaty? It's plenty powerful for it's weight. I need help taming the float. Only thing that helps is pitching the camera upwards and hauling ass, lol.
4. I've cartwheeled the hell out of this frame. Only thing that happens is the arms loosen a bit. Just blue loctite the screws and don't over tighten the soft mounted screws.

Overall, good buy at $150. For more money it might be worth looking elsewhere.

Where would you look elsewhere, if I may ask? Just curious...

Channels change?

So having a problem here, I haven't flown this baby yet. On the bench after a test hover it seems to have change channels on it's own during the hover test.
