Default yellow bee?

My local Harbor Freight has "yellow Bee" for $40.00. Are these any good? Thanks, Don

Not very good at all.

You can learn some about flying from them, but mostly you'll learn that the radio is junk.

from what I remember they have two reverse facing pusher brushed motors. I have bought a few similar but much smaller toys for my 5 year old. my longest successful flight on his is about 1 1/2 minutes.

slow stock prop reversal. it flies! easily! 543 watt dual motor bipe slow stick. push-me-pull-you. 242 watt 3 channel slow stick. 365 watt mini ultra stick. 415 watt mini contender. 810 watt ultra stick .25e. 220 watt alpha 450 sport (retired).
