Mini-Review

FuriBee Apis Florea 66mm Brushless FPV Racer


FuriBee Apis Florea 66 66mm Brushless Micro FPV Racing Drone Review.

My Apis Florea kit has arrived. I have been anxiously awaiting this little quad since I first noticed it on Gearbest. I was shocked that a kit with these specs could be available for only $54.99 Click me to order.

Here is a quick run down of the specs

Specifications:
Model: apis florea
Brushless motor: 1104 7000KV
Brushless ESC: 4-in-1 BLHeli - S 6A (2S LiPo)
ESC support: DShot150 / DShot300 / DShot600
Camera: 800TVL FPV camera CMOS sensor
Video transmitter: 5.8GHz 40CH 25mW
Flight controller: OMNIBUS 1 - 2S F3, with OSD, STM32F303CCT6, MPU6000
Firmware of flight controller: BetaFlight 3.1.7

I have edited the above specs because there were some errors in the specs listed in the product description. The two biggest differences are that this kit includes 7000kv motors, and not 6000kv like the description states. The second difference is that the ESC is only 2s capable, and will not run on a 1s battery. Other than those two things, everything else seems to be as described.

Check out the pics of what is included in the kit, and stay tuned for build pics, and flight video.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.

Happy Flying!!

Please note that if you assemble your quad with the USB port, and the plug for the wiring harness oriented the way I have it assembled in the pics that you will need to adjust your board orientation settings in Betaflight. Alternatively, if you mount the FC so that the USB port is directly above the plug on the ESC, then no changes in BF will be necessary.

Likewize looking forward to the review. I ordered one it's $54 now on Gearbest. It's a very weird spec though. Those motors are way too big for the size. Only works on 2S. Should be great to fly in small confined areas around the house. That's what I plan on using it for. If I could squeeze some 1103's I might try to fly it indoors.

I'll be trying Giant Power 450s for starters. I saw in the thread in the micro forum that you have the same battery. I have a few of those that I use with my 2" quad so I'm hoping they work out well for this too. If not I'll look into some 300-350mah Batt's.

It looks like more than it really is. Two of those bags are sets of props, and a couple bags are hardware, which you don't need anywhere near all of.
