Blade's New Quad - the 350QX
Scheduled for release in the fall, Blade have developed a new quad called the 350 QX. This GoPro compatible quad has all the bells and whistles found on similar platforms, including GPS hold and return home features. It will be available in two version, BNF and RTF at $419.99 and $469.99 respectively.
From Blade Helis:
Blade is taking their knowledge of heli design to the aerial video market with the 350 QX. This highly capable quadcopter features dynamic flight modes that enable stable video capture from an included GoPro® compatible camera mount. With the 350 QX, novices and experts alike can get involved in this exciting hobby with Ready-to-Fly and Bind-N-Fly models available upon release.
While in Smart Mode, SAFE technology engages the innovative SAFE Circle™ which prevents the 350 QX from flying too close to its pilot. When in a hover, GPS and altimeter sensors keep the quadcopter in a consistent stable position. The Stick Relativity feature allows the 350 QX to follow the directional inputs from a pilot regardless of the orientation of the quadcopter.
In Stability Mode, SAFE technology limits the flight envelope of the 350 QX and enables self-leveling characteristics for consistent level flight even when pilot input is abruptly removed from the control sticks. GPS Position Hold can be enabled or disabled by a pilot while in Stability mode.
The 350 QX utilizes AS3X flight characteristics to deliver a robust flight experience. While flying in Agility Mode, the 350 QX can perform aerobatic maneuvers with extreme stability thanks to SAFE technology.
GPS & Altimeter Technology
GPS and altimeter sensors in the 350 QX provide the ability to remain in a specific position for stable aerial footage and peace of mind.
During flight, with the flip of a switch and without any stick input from the pilot, the 350 QX will automatically return home to where its motors were started.
Thanks to four 1100Kv brushless motors and ample power from a 3S 2200mAh 30C Li-Po battery, the 350 QX has more than enough power to carry a GoPro® camera*.
An anti-vibration camera mount** is included with purchase.
