If you haven’t heard of Lumenier, you haven’t been in the racing drone space for long. Lumenier makes some of the best FPV components. Some components are high quality custom branded parts, and others are designed and manufactured from scratch. The QAV-R is one of the best products Lumenier makes. It’s a 5 inch professional grade racing and freestyle drone frame, pared with some of the best electronics you can get on a drone in this category.

For the power system, it has Lumenier RX2206-11 2350Kv motors and Lumenier 30A BLHeli_S ESCs with DSHOT Multishot and all of the other high-speed communication protocols you need. The flight controller is a MPU6000, STM32F405 (what a mouth full!). Basically, it’s a clone of a flight controller called the REVO that originally cost over $100 to make and had a super fast F4 processor. The FPV system is nothing that will blow you away like on the Falcore drone. It’s just your standard 200mW 5.8GHz Raceband TX and 600TVL camera, but it gets the job done for pro pilots, so I guess we can’t complain!

The RTF kit is nice and all of the components are nearly perfect for this frame, but the best part about the QAV-R is the QAV-r frame by itself. In simple words it’s a light weight tank. You can’t break this drone. Technically, I’ve broken this frame, but only after many months of flying and some of the hardest crashes at speeds over 50MPH. And when you do break something, the parts usually don’t cost more than $15 to replace.

Flying with this frame is amazing. It’s super solid which is great for low vibration and better flight characteristics. The design isn’t super fat or long so tuning is easy with the right props. There’s just enough space for any of the GoPro models while keeping the battery balanced. I really can’t find much about this frame to complain about. Are there better frames out there, probably, but this one gets the job done and does it flawlessly, parts are usually in stock, and as they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The QAV-R comes in a few different configurations. If you get the RTF kit (which is really a ARF kit since it doesn’t come with everything you need to fly) it will have either a FrSky or DSMX receiver, so all you need to start flying is a controller, batteries, FPV goggles with a video receiver, and a battery charger.
