The new Lumenier QAV250 Mini FPV Quadcopter


I am excited to announce the soon to be released Lumenier QAV250 Mini FPV Quadcopter airframe. With small yet fully functional FPV quadcopters having gained a lot of popularity recently, we decided to design a small FPV airframe that deserves the QAV label. The QAV250 is a symmetric 250mm size airframe that accommodates 5" props. The 250mm is measured motor shaft to motor shaft diagonally.

Our airframe was designed to support a 3s lipo setup and powerful 2206 2000kv motors that will be released as the Lumenier FX-2206-13 2000kv.

Unique aspects of the QAV250 include the following...

Features
  1. A 2.5D CNC-ed G10 unibody main frame board
  2. Integrated power distribution board for ESCs and FPV flight electronics
  3. 2 integrated LED strips (white and red) to aid LOS orientation
  4. Easy Lipo Access (suggested Lipo is a Lumenier 3s 1300mah)
  5. Support for 32mm board cams as well as cams in cases with mounting bracket
  6. Support for HD camera (such as the Mobius)
  7. Integrated and included Landing Gear reminiscent of the QAV500 CF Landing Gear

Weight
  • Airframe: 145g (with PDB and LED boards)
  • AUW: The QAV250 is flown with an AUW of around 530g (includes all flight electronics, FPV gear and Mobius HD camera).

Vibration Free Video

Like all QAV airframes, the QAV250 produces vibration and jello free HD recordings. We achieve this vibration free performance without the use of Lumenier's clean/dirty frame separation that is utilized in larger QAV airframes such as the QAV400, QAV500, and QAV540G. This simplifies the small QAV250 airframe, making it lighter, reduces parts count, and failure points. We will soon release flight videos flown by our Team of Lumenier pilots.

Availability

The QAV250 will go on pre-order in November and will ship before Christmas 2013. Retail price is still TBD.

Suggested Build Parts



The new addition to the family!

The Mobius goes on top of the frame and is held on with thin velcro. The flight cam goes in-between the bottom and top plate.

Yea that's what I figured. My other frames has the Mobius mounted on top, but the camera is not really protected when your crashing into trees I was hoping to use the Mobius as a dedicated FPV cam to save some weight and having it inside may save the lens from getting damage in a head on collision haha

Sounds like you need to dodge those trees!

You could mount the Mobius inside, just behind the front 2 frame posts. Just mount it a little off the frame with some foam or neoprene and velcro or zip-tie it down. Then you should have a clear shot. I've attached an example photo for you.

A few pictures of the prototype doing some FPV flight testing tonight. Tons of fun!
Note that in the pictures you see below the finished PDB and integrated LED boards are not yet on the frame. (this is a prototype)

Any particular reason why the second layer that outlines the frame and arms, not continue out to and around the motor mount area? Not that I think anything's wrong with it, just curious from a design/function/purpose standpoint.
