Objective: Build the brightest most noticeable quad possible while maintaining acrobatic ability and moderate speed.

Constraint: Use old Qav 250 frame and other most parts on hand. Everything except the LEDS is come out of my horde of new and used parts.

Plan: 12 LEDs per top/bottom of each arm. 24 LEDs on bottom of base plate. 36 LEDs on top of stack plate. 24 LEDs per side of the stack. Total goal of 204 LEDs?

Top front arms, top rear arms, bottom front arms, bottom rear arms, and the stack will each be separate 'strings' running off the LED PD .

This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
