Looking for a QAV250 Power Distribution Board (PDB) to get an integrated FPV setup and simple R/C wiring? This board, nicknamed "FURY", provides upgraded power distribution with current sensing, filtered power to the A/V equipment and option to install a TBS CORE module, while also adding rigidity to the airframe.
The ESCs are soldered to the the board (all wires), making the board layout very tidy and modular. It is designed with the OpenPilot flight controller in mind, requiring only two cables to install the flight system and another two cables (included) to finish the FPV system.
In front of the board is a spot to install an optional TBS CORE module. This provides separation between the FPV system and R/C flight system - which is known to produce noise and cause video interference. It also provides a simple and very handy OSD (On-Screen Display) to read battery consumption, voltage and receiver signal strength. The board can also be set up to work stand-alone (without CORE).
The camera and video transmitter plugs easily into the sockets with the provided cables, there are also solder pads to connect wires directly. Several auxiliary power ports make it easy to hook-up alarms, beepers, video transmitters, etc.
It is made of the same high strength fiberglass-reinforced epoxy laminate as the stock PDB. All the components are protected inside the "cavity" on the QAV250 platform. Two additional mounting holes in the front gives extra rigidity.

Synergistic design review by Hs Helson on 11/14/2016
Vehicle integral PDBs are sometimes criticised for introducing complexities and points of failure, but "Fury" is an exception. In addition to a well designed power routing scheme, one outstanding feature of "Fury" is the highly synergistic integration with TBS Core. Excellence is the reason why Lumenier would openly endorse another company's product.
Most excellent simplification! review by Lou on 1/13/2016
Like a lot of us in the hobby I am pretty anal on my installs. The Fury board is the cats pajamas when it comes to this. It requires above average soldering skills but totally worth it. Works as advertised and it just looks real good installed. One of the best upgrades for the QAV250 in my opinion!
Fury board review by Rafael "ReactioN" Torres on 11/1/2014
Thats by far my favorite item in this hobby...wish had that since my day one...
Many many hours searching, reading, hacking volt reg to install in my quads...
Wiring, soldering, week after week....Then wires, all over the place, and more
searching into the internet looking for a OSD, bought 5 OSD so far, hacking,
burning, cutting wires, soldering... week after week, endless job...
I bought my dragon link system since day one, before my first model, guess what, after 2 years, using the same equipment...
First googles? Fatshark base, still using everyday...
First antenna? 1.3 ghz Crosshair Ibcrazy, needles to say, still using it...
Go with the best, gonna save you time and money...
In this hobby you can't shortcut in most part of the items, in the long run, you will waste money and time...
That board its so perfect, good looking, smart and simple! My setup are so clean right now, and I have OSD with all I need!
And voltage reg for every equipment! My search finally done...
My precious time and money for now on going to be expended with family, friends and flights...
No more hours and hours of searching the internet the perfect mach for the equipment which fit my needs...I already have it all...
Good job ivc.no!
