The Walkera QR X350 revolutionized the multi-rotor market upon its release in 2013 by bringing GPS stabilized mutli-rotor flight to the R/C market at an affordable price. Walkera is breaking the rules again in 2014 with the release of the all new QR X350 PRO, which boasts a whole host of new features and optimization for aerial video/FPV use.
The all new Walkera QR X350 PRO provides astonishing 25 minute flight times on the stock power system, features the all new DEVO-M flight controller providing improved stability/GPS position holding and also is "Plug and Play" compatible with Walkera's G-2D brushless camera gimbal.
The QR X350 PRO has an enhanced altitude sensor which adopts GPS technology allowing it to work out its exact position in reference to the world, this allows the QR X350 PRO to hover in a stabilized position hold mode. With a simple one switch flip or loss of signal the QR X350 PRO will fly itself back to its take-off position and land! Additionally, it offers a manual mode for the sport flyer and even an onboard low voltage warning system to alert you when it’s time to land.
This version of the QR X350 PRO is in "Plug and Fly" form, meaning that you will simply need to add your own radio system (transmitter & receiver) and 3S LiPoly battery. Also included is the all new G-2D brushless camera gimbal which is designed for use with Walkera's iLook HD FPV camera and also the GoPro Hero 3. The G-2D is pre-tuned from the factory requiring no setup, simply bolt on to the bottom of the QR X350 PRO, install your iLook or GoPro Hero 3 camera and you're ready to shoot professional stabilized aerial video!

Great quadcopter to get into multirotors. Very easy to fly, handles well in wind but you must be careful not to descend too fast as it can be unstable at high speed descents. Otherwise super easy to fly. 'Return Home feature is incredibly helpful when disoriented during flight.This product is great for person who's using gopro or gopro-size camera. The good point is you can choose batteries size and capacity. I'm using 3S 2700mAh which is fit the battery chamber. Flight time is an issue because the maximum of battery you can use on this QR X350 is 3000mAh or may be lower which you'd get around 10 mins flight time. The size is great for photography and probably for those who want to upgrade is the gimbal should replace my 3-Axis gimbal.Would not recommend.
I'm a professional commercial drone instructor.
I purchased this item as a somewhat ($600) affordable quad-copter for my brother, and the experience I've had with it has been that of a nightmare.
I have been building and working with Radio Controlled aircraft since they initially came out, and I was one of the pioneers of multi-rotor aircraft.
The build quality is quite horrendous, and you can tell it's obviously not engineered very well.
The Devo-M Flight Control board is extremely challenging to work with. I spent over 20 hours working to get this controller working. Also, from my experience, you cannot use Spektrum receivers with the board. This means you have to purchase the rudimentary, and poorly optimized Devo Transmitter/Receiver.
The first flight I had, on a full charge, after not even four minutes, the quad-copter lost power, fell upside-down onto the pavement. This cracked the flimsy frame, bent two motor shafts, and the FPV camera lens exploded.
After I spent even MORE money on this bottomless pit of China, and fixed it up, the unit burst into flames and melted. I've NEVER had this happen in my 15 years of R/C flying.
I'm extremely irritated, and the support emails on Walkera's website and not valid (working) emails.
What a scammy company.
I would steer clear of this product, and get something true and proven.It is good. It is quite robust. I have crashed many times and only had to replace the legs. The flight time is also good. The brushles gimble gives very steady footage. It is strange that you have to leave a bind plug in the jumper port of the flight controller. Make sure you also have or buy some male to male servo leads at least 10 cm to connect your receiver like 15CM Male to Male Servo Lead (JR) 26AWG (10pcs/set) PRODUCT ID: 015000169-0 . They should be added to the list of required items. When using the GPS make sure you have good reception and don't fly underneath things. Mission planer is good. http://planner.ardupilot.com/. I am using the orange 6 Chanel rx. I have not managed to get it on to the fully manual flight-mode. It is always on the simple flight mode. I have had success with the GPS position hold and landing. To start with I found the instructions a bit brief and frustrating. This is my first multiroter and helicopter. I have it all working nicely now except for the manual flight-mode. I would hesitate before recommending this product. It may be better to buy the one with the transmitter especially if you don't have a transmitter yet. If so, the more channels, the more you can do.Outstanding quad. YOu should have some basic R/C experience if you get the PNF. It does take some knowledge to set it up. Or atleast willing to go to and learn it. This is FULLY programable thru mission planner, this alone puts it heads above all the competition. Walkera, got it right with this! You will not be disapointed in this machine!it relay can fly 25 min on 5200mhA but with no gimbal or camera . flight in full FPV dressing ends before 15 min . Very easy to fly, but not very good on windy weather . auto landing is a bit to fast on touch down . it bounce up turn over and still rotating props instead to stop on the first ground contact. The gimbal in this set is not the best and in my case spontaneously starts to move crazy from time to time even on ground . I learn hard way to balance gyro after long breaks or changing places .
