    The QAV400 FPV Quad Frame by Lumenier (formerly fpvmanuals)

    The QAV400 — a new FPV quadcopter frame based on the inovations in the QAV500, but in a much smaller form factor. The QAV400 is 100mm smaller in size (motor axle to motor axle diagonally). The frame weighs 375g (without landing gear). Just like the QAV500, the frame is extremely stiff due to the materials chosen and construction methods applied. This model uses black anodized, milled aluminum arms. Below is some videos including ones created by Juz in Australia, which demonstrate the sweet-spot for this new frame: extreme acrobatics and maneuverability while still maintaining crystal clear 1080p video, even at 60fps.


    • Frame Weight: 375g (without landing gear)

    • AUW: 1165g with 2200mah 4s nanotech lipo, gopro3, flight cam, TX, CC3D board, and Tiger MT-2208 motors

    • Flight Time: 9 minutes hover with 2200mah 4s nanotech

    • Body: G10

    • Booms: Anodized machined Aluminum

    • Suggested Props: Graupner 8" E-Props Props

    • Power Distribution: Like the QAV500, the QAV400 comes with a power distribution board to solder the ESCs to as well as FPV electronics to

    • Suggested Lipo: 4s 2200mah up to 3300mah. HobbyKing NanoTech Lipos in these sizes fit the frame well in terms of overall dimensions. Max Lipo Dimensions: W: 54mm, H: 35mm, L: 150mm

    • Suggested Motor: Tiger Motor MT-2212-13

    • Suggested ESC: Tiger Motor 18amp ESC

    Thank you guys!

    Juz posted a helpful picture that shows the QAV400 next to a QAV500 and a HT-FLIP. Big size difference between the QAV400 and QAV500.
