    To begin, this frame has been amazing! The assembly is a breeze and is actually fun. I was somewhat of a rc 'noob' when I bought this frame and built my second quadcopter. That being said I had no trouble building it.
    The performance of this frame is amazing as well. I made a gimbal mount for my Tarrot gimbal, but then I ended up not using the gimbal because the vibration isloation on this frame works great.
    Here is the big hit to this frame. The vibration isolation bobbins are pretty expensive. After about every three crashes I have to replace one or two bobbins and this adds up. In total I have bought about 3 packs of new bobbins (I'm not a very good pilot).
    In the end, this frame is amazing and I recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality frame that can withstand most crashes.

  4. Amazing Airframe review by Brennan on 7/23/2014

    I bought a QAV400 after really enjoying a QAV250 and wanting something a bit larger and stable. I was also lusting after the plug&play gimbal.

    My 400 is set up for FPV and autopilot with an APM 2.6 flight controller. It flies like a dream. Super stable, extremely powerful, and still really agile. This is my go-to quadcopter for aerial photography, and it's a BLAST for FPV.

  5. Great fun, quality product, quality company! review by Chas on 12/12/2013

    This was my first "non-toy" quadcopter, and I was very impressed with both the quality of the kit and the performance of it once I got it in the air. Flying it in FPV mode is a dream, and it has been a tough little machine, despite a few encounters with tree branches and other objects. The anti-vibration bobbins work great, and so far they have held up well for over six months of grueling flying. The best part about Lumenier's products is that their customer service department actually exists! (Unlike some other companies out there.)

  8. Most fun quad...w/o jello review by kevinv033 on 6/10/2013

    I have had this quad for about 4 months now. It is strong, stiff and well designed. I use it with the delrin landing legs. These provide a nice break away point for hard landings. I have had a couple of very hard landings and the zipties just popped off saving the aluminum arms from getting bent. You can use this as a fast, fun flier or a slow stable video capturing machine. Combined with a well-tuned CC3D, this is by far the most fun quad I have owned.

  9. BEST FRAME I HAVE EVER USED FOR FPV!! review by XHOVER on 6/8/2013

    By far my favorite fpv frame, light small compact and powerful!! I've had many FPV frames in the past and after using this frame for a month i decided this was all i needed to record all my fpv flights.

    This frame is the Ferrari off all FPV frames along with the QAV500.


    Great job Tim.

  10. Best quad in my arsenal review by Phillips942 on 5/18/2013

    Quality

    Starting off with the Gaui 330 a few years ago this frame is leaps above it! I've owned several frames since then and have had to spend an abundant amount of time chasing vibrations. I have 12+ years experience so i know the little in's and out's of tweaking and tinkering to get things to work but this frame made it super easy to get the quality video/image I was looking for.

    The quality is superb and the PCB board is an awesome way to minimize the amount of wires on the frame, I love it. The arms are aluminum so no flex, super rigid frame.

    The only neutral thing i have to say about the frame or the kit is that it should have come with landing gear as a part of the kit and not an accessory. Since it is a dedicated FPV frame and the CCD camera being underslung, without the landing gear it would land and the camera would hit the ground first.

    My only wish is the arms were a little longer to allow 9" props.
    Absolutely NO Jello on Go Pro 1080P

    Take off the GoPro and run lighter 2200's and it's a rocket.

  15. Good product, a few flaws though review by Bsm428 on 2/23/2013
    Quality

    I am a perfectionist and am somewhat OCD so I notice things that others might not. That being said, this is a solid frame kit. This is my first quadcopter build and so far all I have is the frame, so I cant review it based on flight, but this thing is cool! Very light weight and sturdy. the rubber mounts that separate where the motors/props are mounted from where the camera will be is a nice touch, I can tell it will absorb a lot of vibrations.

    As far as machining goes, I work part time in a CNC machine shop and was able to see some flaws. One of my threaded holes that are used to bolt the prop arm onto the body had no threads. Easy fix for me, ill just take it to work and tap it, but others might find something like this a hassle if they need to send it back for a replacement. Also, the supplied allen head wrench is a poor fit to the supplied hex head screws. The wrench is loose and if you try to tighten the screws too much they will strip VERY EASILY. Either go light and use some lock tight or find a wrench from your home set that fits better.

    Another small flaw was I noticed was the chamfers around the edges of the parts (rounded edges around the screw holes etc.) are sometimes excessively big or non existent.

    Minor details, I just didnt expect any of these flaws when paying a premium price for a frame. Maybe I'm just overly picky and notice these things since I work in this type of field, but regardless none of these defects should have any effect on performance.

    Just thought I'd give a detailed review so people knew what to expect! All things considered, I'm super happy with the frame kit and cant wait to try it out! Thanks for a sweet kit FPV
