About this product

Introducing the Lumenier QAV-R 2 Deadcat. The worthy successor to the venerated QAV-R that many pilots fell in love with back in 2015. The QAV-R 2 keeps many design elements from the original but adds modern compatibility and features that are preferred by today's pilots.

The new "Deadcat" design for the QAV-R 2 sweeps the arms towards the back, resulting in a "no props in view" picture from 5" up to 7"! Perfect for a cinematic look of a flying camera. In addition to the swept-back arms, the QAV-R 2 Deadcat uses the XL main body plates, further pushing the camera forward and allowing for more room for your gear inside. The XL plates fit 20x20 and 30x30 in the center as well as the rear.

The Deadcat is a perfect match for the new HD FPV systems as well, such as the DJI Digital HD System or the Caddx Vista Digital HD system. There is plenty of room to mount each digital system in the rear of the frame. With no props in view with the QAV-R 2 Deadcat, you can make a killer digital HD flying rig!

Whether it's on the racecourse or shooting HD footage zipping down a mountainside, you'll feel like this frame was made just for you.

Made with high-quality Lumenier carbon fiber and sealed with a smooth clear coat layer on top, the QAV-R 2 Deadcat looks and feels amazing. The carbon weave is laid out parallel to each part of the frame, giving the most strength and durability. But what are looks without functionality right?

The QAV-R 2 Deadcat is built to last, with individually removable 4.5mm thick arms on the 5" and 6" versions, and 5mm thick arms on the 7" frame. The four arms form an interlocking arrangement on the bottom of the frame that strengthens the whole quad. The arms come with bumpers that protect your motors from damage should you (when you) get into an accident with a tree or asphalt. The bottom and top plates come in at 2.5mm and 2mm thick respectively, giving you 7.5mm of carbon at the center of the frame. 

Your electronics stack on the QAV-R 2 Deadcat can be configured how you want, with either standard 30.5x30.5mm spaced stacks or mini 20x20mm stacks. Both versions of the QAV-R 2 Deadcat are made to top-mount the LiPo battery. The included silicone non-slip battery pad helps grip the LiPo and prevents any movement during the flight and or during a crash.

The QAV-R 2 comes in two different versions, the QAV-R 2 Deadcat and the QAV-R 2 Slam Deadcat. Both frames have three different arm lengths to choose from -- 5", 6", and 7". The Slam version has a much shorter gap (20mm) between the top and bottom plates and is designed for micro-sized cameras, something that has become increasingly popular in the FPV community as the resurgence in arm-mounted ESCs means less space needed in the electronics stack. While the standard QAV-R 2 Deadcat is spaced 28mm between the top and bottom plates and designed for a full-size FPV camera.

The Slam comes with molded rubber camera brackets that fit any micro-sized FPV camera. While the standard QAV-R 2 Deadcat comes with carbon fiber sidewalls that fit full-size FPV cameras.

Every QAV-R 2 Deadcat comes with four custom neoprene landing pads, extra-long screws for electronics stacks, and plenty of cable ties.
