Lumenier QAV250 Mini FPV Quadcopter

The Lumenier QAV250 is a 250mm size Mini FPV Quadcopter airframe, this small FPV quadcopter having gained a lot of popularity recently. The Lumenier QAV250 has two editions, they are G10 Edition and Carbon Fiber Edition.

The Lumenier QAV250 Mini FPV Quadcopter Carbon Fiber Edition airframe has all the features of the standard QAV250 plus the added benefits of carbon fiber. The pure 3K carbon fiber material gives the airframe incredible strength while at the same time reducing the overall weight. The entire assembled kit weighs in at only 122g.

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.

Flight Time

Fully loaded with FPV gear and Mobius HD cam, we get 7 1/2 minute hover time with a 1300mah 3s lipo, 5×3 Gemfan props, and 12amp ESCs. Lipo had 3.6v per cell remaining.


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