I received a package in the mail today. It contained a new little mini quad from Lumenier. The QAV250 looks to be a really amazing little take-anywhere fpv quad. The frame is machined from thick sheet G10. It feels like it can hold up to a heavy crash. The frame is light, but very rigid. It doesn’t have vibration dampening with a clean and dirty section as it’s big brothers (400, 500, 540G), but apparently it does reduce the vibrations. I am going to be installing the following components on this machine.
- OpenPilot Revo using built-in OPLM (as the Rx)
- RCX 1804-2400kv motors
- Lumenier 12A SimonK ESC
- Gemfan 5×3 props
- Immersion RC 600mW 5.8GHz Vtx + Spironet CL
- Sony 600TVL Board camera
- Mobius Action Camera
I’ll be posting a build log here and hopefully on MultirotorUSA too. This build most likely won’t start until I complete the VulcanUAV Mantis.
Update: The build was too easy and I didn’t take any photos while building. Here’s a photo of it during the maiden.
