This is a build blog of Duanes Bee ... a nice little Microcopter capable of a HD cam like Mobius Action Cam, follow up and enjoy.


Starting with the frame today ( 12.Apr. 2014).

Step 1:

- Sawing, sawing and drilling.20140412 155026

What is it made of ?

Acrylglass, an epoxyplate as centerplater and stronghold and traditional aluminium bars as the so called 'arms'.
the acryl has differnt sized. The lower plate is a bit more flexible than the top plate. Why ?
the top plate has to support the screws, which will later 'jam' the bars between the different layers. You will see later.

Colors : yeah .... no it won't stay pink. Thats just the foil that covers the plastic and protects it during the assembling.

Time needed : About 1 hour ( .... and some blood)



Step 2:

- Paintjob .... hate it or love itframe2


After about 1 hour (including) painting it looks like this : Drying on a heater .....
Is there differnt colors available ? Yeah, but I was sure pink aint no mans color :)

 Step 3:




Look at that .... the bee frame is ready to use. I use metal spacers to give her a bit more strengh. Its also possible to use plastic ones. But after the first hard landing you might regrate your decision. If you want to safe money and weight fantastic plastic might be your choice.

Srews user:

M3x16 .... 9 of them.
M3x10 .... 4 of them.


What you can't see is the battery bay. I added it afterwards :)

What next ? The electronics, which we are waiting for ........
