BQE Bandolero 6″

(4 customer reviews)


We set out to design a freestyle frame that would excel in the abandoned factories and concrete wastelands. 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 grueling crash testing, the Bandolero was born.

The 6″ version of this frame is great for getting a little more range, running 5.5″ or 6″ props, or even running 5″ props for an ultra stable feel.

Now shipping exclusively with the 6mm thick low drag arms.

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. *The detail photos below show the 5″ model.


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 are 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. *The detail photos below show the 5″ model.


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. *The detail photos below show the 5″ model.

    I’m going to start off by saying “this is an amazing frame” . If you’re looking for a great frame that will take a beating and keep flying this is it. I personally fly it with 6″ props if i’m trying to get some range and 5′ props if I’m going freestyle. All around a great frame

    She is beauty and the beast.. My 6” setup is a long range freestyle monster…. As usual BQE has come with the top quality design, carbon, and tpu. Top mount pack and low CG make for a sick wall banger and skate park grinder… This thing begs to be sent……. send it!

    I chose the Bandolero 6″ based on recommendations and reviews from a few different pilots. If I had to choose a word to describe this frame its “Utilitarian”. Its a simple low deck design with good quality carbon and 3d printed parts. I swapped all my components over from a different low deck frame. I made one change in BF and I am impressed at how it flies. Its nimble for a 6″ but throws its weight around well. It tracks very well around turns and hucks it weight up and over obstacles with good control and authority. I fly in a windy area so I appreciate the extra weight. The plates are nice and thick and the arms can be changed without disturbing the stack. Good job BQE you’ve gained a loyal pilot.

    The absolute most well designed frame I have ever had bought or seen. I have ran this thing nose first into heavy gravel, trees, fell out of the sky on to pavement. Still picture worthy. It’s Heavy, but it’s just heavy enough for the perfect freestyle floaty 6″. Hope that makes sense, no matter what this thing is a Monster
