    D_Spec Scout Bee [Another another Scout Bee]

    Just finished her esterday after months of slow progress during school. She is a sister Bee to Sentry's 60" Scout Bee. This one is built very similarly and with almost the same specs. Thought I would share...

    440+ Watts
    70amp TRUST ESC
    Home made ZII knockoff motor mount
    TLRS LR Rx
    DOSD+ v2
    RMRC 540 Camera
    RMRC 1280 300mw vTx
    "New Stuff" Laminate
    3 x Luxeon 3W Headlights with rc switch
    12v Buck Inverter
    GoPro

    AUW = 3lbs 11oz (1.67kg)

    Maiden way yesterday. VERY fun and ready for some tandem action.

    Moving the servos outboard!



    Battery bay cut out to accommodate up to 2 x 5000 25c 3s









    All the gear...





    I really like the new Z2 motor mount. It is simple, strong, and works. So naturally I somewhat copied it and rounded it a little just for looks.






    After the maiden. Pictured with the FPVMobile.

    Here are the headlights. Not yet tested at night...

    Thanks! I have been following your thread since the beginning! Looking good. I have been working on this one for MONTHS but it finally came together with some pressure from Sentry to fly tandem.

    I would post the maiden video but due to some cmos jello, it is very disturbing... lol

    Go on! I bet I've seen worse, I stuck a keychain cam straight onto a beater TRex 450 clone I had and it was so wobbly it looked like an acid trip!

    Would be interested if you guys notice any difference between the full elevons the whole way along a la Sentry and the shaved down Zephyr style ones on Derek's.
