We JUST ran out during our Labor Day Sale, but there are already more being cut, so we are allowing backorders for a limited time. These should be back in stock within 3 weeks.
We took everything we loved from the BOT5, made it beefier where it counts, mashed it up with design elements we’ve been fine tuning over the past year, and gave it replaceable 6mm arms… It’s the BOTAFX Banger 5″.
3 months of testing. 10 pilots. Freezing cold weather. Two broken arms. If this thing can survive Botgrinder and the BQE team, it can definitely take whatever abandoned buildings you chuck it at. There’s room for 2 stacks, it has quick change battery strap nubs, and if you run a 20×20 stack, changing an arm is as simple as removing a single bolt. And because we want to go easy on your wallet… we designed it so you can use your existing Bot5 and Bandolero GoPro mounts, and save your cash for some sweet Grinder II’s.

You can purchase spare arms in single or double packs.
The 3.2mm build deck has flush mounted press nuts to maximize every millimeter of stack space. It also has positions for a 20x20 or 30.5x30.5 center stack and a second 20x20 stack in the rear, with slotted holes to allow you to position your electronics exactly where you want them. When using 20x20 stacks, changing an arm only requires removing one bolt, and loosening one other. And can we talk about these arms for a second? They are cut from the strongest 6mm carbon we could source, have silky chamfered edges and the motor mounts are reinforced with pocket cut center holes. No more lost C-clips.
We wanted it to be as easy as possible to upgrade from your original Bot5 frame to the BOTAFX, so we used the same hole pattern for the GoPro Mounts and accessories. Most accessories that fit the Bot5 will also fit the BOTAFX. Plus, we designed adapters to let you mount GoPro sleeves designed to fit the BQE Bandolero frame... so you can swap your GoPro from build to build, with just 4 screws. And we've made the top plate more durable and convenient by replacing battery strap slots with nearly unbreakable nubs to keep your straps where you want them, without it being difficult to change out torn straps.
