The Lumenier QAV-CINE Freybott Edition is a versatile micro-sized (2.5" props) FPV quadcopter designed to be small and agile with full propeller protection all while still carrying a "naked" GoPro camera.
Lumenier has teamed up with world-renowned FPV pilot Phil Freybott to bring you the ultimate micro cinematography rig. Phil is the founder of Cinequads, which is an FPV based cinematography company creating high-quality cinematic content with the use of FPV drones. Phil has many years of experience shooting professionally with FPV drones on TV commercial sets, movies, and automotive brands like Porsche and Mercedes to name a few. Through his professional experience and optimized workflow, and combined with Lumenier's high-quality design and manufacturing, they bring you the ultimate 2.5" FPV drone.
Being a full-time Professional Commercial Drone pilot I was in need of a small and reliable working rig that's super light but still stiff and strong at the same time. It needed all the flight characteristics of a 5-inch quad, but that's really hard to achieve on a quad this small, so we went through a lot of testing and prototyping to find the right balance between weight and size. We use this drone on 70% of our client shoots, and it's absolutely amazing to have something that small and powerful in your collection. But you don't have to be a Pro to enjoy this quad, and one of my biggest goals was to make this quad as versatile as possible so everyone can build it their own way. There are no limits when it comes to mounting your components. Doesn't matter if it's analog or Digital. There are options and layouts for everyone. This sub 250g beast is just too much fun and you will see that you put your 5-inch quad aside more than you think! Have fun and create amazing things.
Designed for both HD and Analog Systems
The QAV-CINE frame was designed from the ground up to be very versatile and allow many different configurations with the same design. This one airframe design fits 20x20 stacks, 25.5x25.5 toothpick AIO boards, Caddx Vista digital HD system, mounting points for an antenna, camera, receiver, transmitter, and more. Now you can fly in full digital HD in an incredibly small package!
Improved Flight Time and Performance
The Lumenier QAV-CINE Freybott Edition allows you to build your quad how you want it. This airframe design supports both standard motor mounting and pusher configuration. In the pusher configuration, it was found to have 15-20% more flight time and even better throttle response. Many "pusher" style frames struggle to easily take off from the ground since their props are often resting on the surface, but with the QAV-CINE it's no problem since the entire prop is surrounded by carbon fiber. This gives you plenty of clearance to take-off and land without any issue.
With an all-up weight of just 53g, this airframe is top in class. It has the perfect balance of durability and protection that you need, without any extra dead weight that you don't. The body is made up of ultra-strong 3K carbon fiber paired with beautiful multi-colored chromed aluminum standoffs. Combined with custom light-weight quick-swap battery straps and M2 hardware, this kit is the perfect 2.5" setup.
Supports "Naked" GoPro Mounting
Want to add 4k buttery smooth video recording to your QAV-CINE? No problem the frame is designed to carry a "naked" style GoPro camera with a dedicated camera mounting bard on top. This allows a variety of cases and 3-D prints to securely hold the GoPro camera in place making sure you get the perfect shot!
Added Protection with Modular Foam Bumpers
The QAV-CINE Freybott Edition gives you the option to fly with only the Carbon Fiber frame, or add extra protection with the snap-on foam bumpers. Flying close to people or objects that you need a little more security? No problem! Simply pop on the foam pads in seconds and you're good to go. When you're done you can take them back off and flying again with just the carbon guards. Easy!
