The Danaus Quadcopter

monarch-standing-reflection The Mini Quad with Integrated Prop Protection.

Inspired by the popular QAV250, the Lumenier Danaus is a mini FPV quadcopter with integrated prop protection. The frame is constructed from 2 large unibody frame plates utilizing a Carbon Fiber with Glass Fiber laminate. Like the QAV250, the Lumenier Danaus features a power distribution board and a FPV board camera mounting plate. Equipped with a 5" inch prop and a 3s or 4s power train, the Danaus makes for a great trainer or obstacle course flyer.

Mini quads are tons of fun in tight spaces, but the problem is that once a propeller strikes an object, you'll crash and your props will need to be replaced. This is no longer a problem when flying the Danaus! Now you can fly without fear of breaking props so easily, navigate tight quarters, and explore places you never could before. The Danaus guards your motors and props in all 360 degrees, and you can even pin it to the ceiling without the props hitting. Save your props, fly a Danaus!
