The iFlight TurboBee family continues to grow! The TurboBee 66R is the smallest device in the range – for the moment – with a 6.6 cm diagonal measurement of the motor engine. It follows the principle of the other models: a carbon structure on which the motors are fixed, brushless 0802 to 12000KV for 3 cm quadripal propellers with a central hole of 1 mm. The ESC that drives them is a SucceX 12A DShot600. The propellers are enclosed in flexible plastic protections.
The flight controller is a SucceX based on an F4 processor flashed with Betaflight including an active OSD. The camera is a Caddx 1200TVL Turbo EOS2 associated with a 5.8 GHz SucceX Whoop transmitter capable of transmitting at 0 mW (pitmode), 25 mW (the maximum allowed in France), 100 mW and 200 mW, with support for the IRC Tramp protocol for settings via remote control and OSD. The antenna is a dipole mounted on a u.FL connector.
The device weighs 43 grams without the battery. The power socket is an XT30. iFlight recommends 1S or 2S batteries (not easy to find with an XT30 connector). The ESC and flight controller support the 3S and even the 4S, but the engines are unlikely to withstand the impact. The TurboBee 66R is available without a radio receiver, with a Flysky A8S or FrSky XM+ receiver. The price? It will be offered from $119.99 at Banggood.
