About this product

QAV500 V2 FPV Quadcopter

The airframe that introduced the Clean/Dirty H-Frame concept to the world in 2012 has now been significantly upgraded in this new version. This airframe replaces both the original QAV500 as well as the QAV540G. The QAV500 V2 adds the ability to mount Lumenier's quick mount gimbal, which enables one airframe to be flown both as an acrobatic airframe carrying a fixed GoPro as well as aerial videography airframe with 2-axis gimbal. When purchasing the new QAV500 V2, you now have a choice of arms in different lengths and materials. Arm choices include the original aluminum CNC-ed 500 arms for a 500mm size airframe (measured from motor shaft to motor shaft diagonally), 500mm size G10 arms, 520mm size G10 arms, or long 540mm aluminum arms. The new QAV500 V2 now features a significantly stiffer Dirty Airframe, which is most noticeable when utilizing the longer 520 and 540 size arms.

With 500mm arms, the frame supports a 10 inch prop without seeing props in the video with a fixed or gimbal stabilized GoPro. With a 540mm arm, mounting up to a 12 inch prop is supported without props in view when flown with the Quick Mount Gimbal. With 12 inch props, flight times of 25 minutes or more are possible when utilizing appropriate motors, props, and lipos.

QAV500 Carbon Fiber Side-WallThe improved Dirty section of the airframe has been stiffened by implementing curved carbon fiber side-walls combined with a carbon fiber bottom plate and a re-designed power distribution board. The new power distribution board features integrated, 2 separate voltage conversion circuits, and redesigned layout to easily fit a wide variety of ESCs inside the Dirty frame's cavity.

The Clean section of the airframe now features a total of 6 Orange RC Bobbins which have been utilized in all of Lumenier's Clean/Dirty airframes with incredible results. The added bobbin pair prevents the clean section to sag in the center of the airframes. The Clean section now also features a retaining mechanism that prevents the two airframe sections to separate and bobbins to rip apart in the event of a crash. The Clean section features a longer top plate that stiffens the back of the airframe when used with larger, heavier lipo batteries. Furthermore, the larger Clean section provides increased room to mount FPV and other electronics. GPS mounting is made easy with dedicated GPS mounting locations in the center or back of the airframe.
