When Jeff Orta aka Vort3x joined the BQE team, we set out to design a freestyle frame that would excel in the abandoned factories and concrete wastelands that he’s known to rip. It had to be beefy. It needed a super low center of gravity. And we wanted it to have replaceable arms that were easy to change in the field and didn’t interfere with the electronics.

After months of abusive testing, we are proud to introduce Jeff’s signature frame, the BQE Bandolero.

  • 235mm Motor to motor (5″)
  • Super low center of gravity, 12mm deck height
  • Replaceable 4mm arms that don’t rely on stack bolts
  • Dual 30×30 or 20×20 stacks with pass through ports
  • Fits full size or micro size cameras
  • Integrated translucent trunk to stash LEDs or other electronics
  • Damped camera mounts and 30º top bumper
  • Factory pressed stainless threaded inserts
  • Two flexible antenna mounting options
  • BQE Exclusive Military Green TPU parts

The Bandolero is also available with 6″ arms and 7″ arms.

Description

Each kit contains camera mounts that can be flipped to accommodate either  full size fpv camera or a micro size camera. We also throw in 2 different rear antenna mounts, one is a flexible horizontal zip tie mount and the other is a 45º combo mount that has an SMA port and 90º RX antenna mounting points for diversity RX’s and TBS Crossfire stock 90º antenna. We also have an optional GPS mount coming soon, and available for free download. The integrated trunk is translucent, so you can mount LED’s inside for a bold tail light that no one behind you will miss, or use the space to mount a vtx, rx or other pcb.

 

Designed with a GoPro in mind, the Bandolero has an integrated bumper mount that reinforces the nose and protects the fpv camera from impact. Bolt on sleeves available from BMC3d and Brain3d to fit the GoPro Session and Hero 7. The bumper is designed with a 30º angle, for optimal Go Pro positioning.

 

Want to record your friends who can’t keep up behind you? Shoot some reverse footage? Remove the trunk and add a chase cam. The chase cam mount will be available soon for purchase and free download.

    THIS THING FUCKING RIPS. HOWEVER… BE FORWARNED… YOU WILL BECOME MORE ATTRACTIVE AFTER FLYING THIS. STAY HUMBLE.

    Wow, this frame is beautiful and I’m not talking about that type of beautiful you send home the next morning. When you pull this thing out of the mud because you just remembered you’re still not too great at matty flips, you’ll be amazed at how freaking sturdy this thing is. This thing has taken more blows than my self-esteem each time I get rejected by a girl. These frame has just reinforced my love for BQE and I can’t see myself flying anything else.

  3. totally not ole gravy leg

    ive been flying this for about 5 months or so, and it is durable as hell! in that time i have only broken 1 arm, then i usually would have gone thru 10 or more easily! the arms are super fast to change out since they dont disturb the stack! it flies great, builds easy, its balanced perfect, tons of flight cam and motor protection, the end.

    the bot5 and bandolero have been dead even as my go to rig! and we all know how strong the bot5 is!

  4. Notbotgrinder

    All of the sweet buildings in my town became abandon after I bought this. It’s almost like it was built to RIP bandos…

    Such a good frame! I have 2. It’s a fun frame to build on, tons of options.
