The ready to fly (RTF) Lumenier QAV180 Mini FPV Quadcopter airframe is a small yet fully functional FPV quad deserving the QAV label. The QAV180 is a 180mm size airframe that accommodates 4" Props.
The Lumenier QAV180 Carbon Fiber FPV Quadcopter airframe is Lumenier's smallest FPV quad kit to date. It is designed around 4" props and 1806 size motors with 2300kv and up. The assembled kit containing Carbon Fiber Plates, Power Distribution Board and all hardware weighs in at only 85g. The included, but optional landing gear adds another 5g.
Like it's popular 'big brother', the Lumenier QAV250, the QAV180 utilizes high quality 3K carbon fiber that is precision machined for a superb fit-and-finish. The QAV180 is an awesome FPV racer and acrobat. The frame is designed to mount a 26mm FPV camera like the Lumenier CM-650 at a range of angles. Alternatively, the frame also includes a mounting plate to mount standard 32mm board cameras at a fixed 20 degree angle.
This RTF has been fully built and test flown for you, so you can simply add a compatible radio receiver 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.
