The ready to fly (RTF) Lumenier QAV250 Mini FPV Quadcopter - Carbon Fiber Edition airframe is a small yet fully functional FPV quad deserving the QAV label. The QAV250 is a symmetric 250mm size airframe that accommodates 5" props. The 250mm is measured motor shaft to motor shaft diagonally.
The airframe is designed to support 3s lipos such as the Lumenier 1300mah 3s with XT-60 connector.
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.
The included CC3D flight controller comes with a multi-cable that you will need to insert into your RC RX. Use these cable colors from the CC3D and insert them into your RX like so:
To ensure your radio is hooked up correctly, we suggest you connect the CC3D board to your computer via a USB cable (not included) and the available OpenPilot GCS software.
The included CC3D board has already been pre-programmed for you and test flown, so all of the tuning is already done for you. Do not re-flash the board with new software without first backing up the settings or you will lose the pre-programmed settings. When you receive the RTF all you need to do it install your radio receiver into the QAV250 (make sure to bind your receiver to your radio), and then plug in the CC3D board to your computer once you've downloaded and installed the GCS software. (Always make sure you remove all propellers when programming) Do not run the "Vehichle Setup Wizard" which will have you reflash the board and wipe all the settings we already have done for you. Instead go to the "Configuration" tab on the bottom, then to the "Input" tab on the top left. In this menu you'll see an option to run the "Start Configuration Wizard" which will walk you through the steps to configure your radio with the CC3D board. Complete this wizard and once you're finished you can set your "Arming Settings". Flight modes have already been pre-configured, but you can change those if you like. Now you're all done!
