The Lumenier QAV-X CHARPU FPV racing quadcopter is a symmetrical X, light weight, super stiff, finely tuned airframe designed for high performance FPV Drone Racing. The QAV-X was created in collaboration with and named after the World-Famous Lumenier team pilot, CHARPU as featured in WIRED video article. This racing airframe is stripped down to the bare essentials without sacrificing strength and durability. This version features the durable 4mm carbon fiber main unibody plate.
The QAV-X features a unique FPV camera and HD mounting system. The FPV camera is recessed partially below top plate and protected by the top cross bar, guarding your electronics. At the same time, the camera side walls act as an angled wedge to set your HD camera on for recording, such as a GoPro, at a 35 degree angle. No need to 3D print custom mounts to angle up your camera anymore, just add some of the included neoprene foam, securely strap down your camera and fly!
This RTF has been fully built and test flown for you, so you can simply bind your FrSky radio and go! Our professional build team takes the guess work out of building and tuning for you by pre-programming the flight controller settings and using only high quality Lumenier motors, ESCs and FPV gear.
