Embedded FPV in a Blade 350 QX

Hi All,

I just finished the maiden flight of my newly custom modified Blade 350 QX.

This required a great deal of testing and modification to the body and battery tray if your not VERY comfortable with a dremel, xacto and soldering iron don't try this at home;-)

I have all the FPV equipment inside the body of the aircraft.

It runs perfectly, GPS locks quickly, i have tested it out to 600 feet (LOS), solid signal using Fat Shark Attitude V2

8 min flights with GoPro attached
10 min FPV only
using stock battery

I HIGHLY recommend the carbon fiber rotor mod before doing this as I don't trust even the "B" blades.

This mod works and works WELL

If you have questions feel free to ask.

Good flying

Dave

2.0 System Software and if its not already done, move the GPS and antenna from the top of the battery tray and attach the GPS on its side to the battery tray by the battery opening. Put the GPS antenna with double sided tape on top of the speed controller of motor3. Be sure to position the GPS antenna with the correct side up. All new Blade 350 QXs are being shipped this way.

Battery is 2200 mah

1st off, nice install of the Tx. Have you had any issues with overheating the FPV tx? It gets pretty hot.
