    The Lumenier QAV-X CHARPU FPV Racing Quadcopter

    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. This racing airframe is stripped down to the bare essentials without sacrificing strength and durability.

    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!

    The main "unibody" 3mm or 4mm plate is CNC milled out of a solid sheet of premium Lumenier carbon fiber. The outer weave of the carbon fiber runs 100% down each arm of the QAV-X (0/90 weave), maximizing the strength of the carbon and arms. The center layers are offet at 45 degrees providing even and balanced strength throughout the entire plate.

    The top plate includes an accessory antenna extension plate, allowing for multiple cable ties to lock down your antenna in place. No more damaging the SMA connection on your VTX. The top plate also has a cutout allowing access to your VTX button and LED displays for easy channel adjustment. The balancing bumps on the sides of the top plate make it easy to measure the center of gravity on your frame in the field to get the perfect balance.
    Each kit includes a carbon fiber battery protector plate. The airframe is designed to strap a LiPo battery to the bottom, leaving the battery exposed during a hard landing or crash. Use this included plate to wrap underneath the battery, sandwiching the pack between the main plate and protector plate. Additionally, you can use the included Neoprene foam to create a landing pad on the bottom of the battery protector plate. This will help keep the airframe upright during take off and landings.

    The airframe comes with high quality aluminum hardware. All screws are premium, black oxide steel. The spacers have a textured grip surface treatment, which facilitates holding of the spacers during assembly and servicing of the airframe. The spacers are also 28mm tall vs the standard 35mm. This gives the airframe a sleek, low profile look.
    Included with the QAV-X CHARPU kit is the popular Lumenier 4Power power distribution board which can be fitted with an optional Pololu voltage drop-down circuit (to 12v or 5v), a XT60 pig-tail. Like the QAV210/180, the QAV-X kit enables mounting of small FPV camers such as the Lumenier CM-650 in a fully encased assembly which protects the FPV camera during crashes and enables pointing the FPV camera at a wide variety of viewing angles.

    I love the Lumenier Frames. I fly a QAV-R 5" right now thinking about getting a spare Quad just in case. I only use TBS gear ans so I'd like to know if you can fit a Powercube inside this Frame?
    It looks like the FPV Cam will block the space required to mount a Powercube inside wich is really a shame. Do you think about doing some spare camplate to move the FPV-cam more towards the front and make some space for a Powercube?

    When will parts be available? Specifically the main frame/baseplate. I don't buy kits, but am definitely interested in purchasing just the baseplate. Pretty sweet compact design.

    Any of the Lumenier 2204 or 2206 motors would work very well. The higher kv, 2300 and up is prefered on 5" props on 4s for the racers. The 2206 will have a little more low end torque, where the 2204 will be lighter.

    Spare parts will be available shortly after the first shipment of kits, probably 1-2 weeks after. Kits should be shipping out in 1-2 weeks!

    It was designed for the GoPro, but yes you can also mount other cameras. Simply use the top plate to wrap a strap around and secure the camera of your choice.
