- Optional drop off landing gear
- No expensive fan unit required, uses a cut down 8x6 propeller
- Very light airframe
The Turbo Bee can take off from the ground with the optional drop-off landing gear keeping the flying weight down to a minimum. The clean aerodynamics and the optional drop-off landing gear allow surprisingly high speeds and predictable, amazingly low slow speed performance. Expensive fan units are not required because the large diameter duct works well with a cut-down propeller. The covered airframe weighs approximately 10.4 oz with servos installed.
Instead of using an expensive ducted fan unit, the Turbo Bee uses an internal ducted propeller made from a standard prop (APC 8x6 "E" Prop) that has been cut down to fit the 4.25" duct. This saves cost and improves performance with the common motor.
