I haven't flown mine in awhile.

Might have to change that.

I switched to the Volitation flybar per a customer comment on Hobby People's site and it does in fact hover better. The "toilet bowl effect" is mostly neutralized. Still wants to TBE just a bit, but not too badly. However, I haven't taken the time to actually fly it. I'm afraid of putting too much stress on the motor simply because the Volitation part is so much heavier. This isn't really a hovering machine to begin with; it wants to fly.

Has anyone else out there done a similar mod and if so, how did it go?

I should also point out that I have the shaft upgrade as well. I'm still on the original motors, too.

Went to fly my x350 tonight, and the left control stick was broken! I'm guessing it's a spring? Un useable. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, thinking about the BL upgrade. Is it worth it?

I've moved on to the HP X2. Yes the Brushless motors are worth it. I am not caring around a Hero 3 camera on the bottom of my X2

The X-2

I have the new version of the 350 the x-2. I can't compare them because I never had the 350. I can tell you after two days of flying I like this bird. It is very stable, has plenty of power and is fast. I have crashed it one time by getting it stuck 20 feet up in a neighbors tree. It then fell down without damage. That's pretty durable. I am a little concerned with the stock brushed motors as I did detect a burning smell but noticed no drop in performance, perhaps they were just getting broke in. I do have the brushless motor upgrade and will install them soon. So far so good and I like the ability to add more channels and control as you progress. At least I can fly this thing outside and it is fun.

I have not flown my x350 helicopter for a long time, like 2 years or so. I have too many other helicopters and planes that I fly. I installed the shaft extensions which turned out to be easy, but I have not flown it since then. However, it flew fine before I installed the longer shafts so there is no reason it should not fly fine now also.

I need to move it out of my bedroom and will sell it at a very reasonable cost including free shipping to the lower 48. It comes with the original battery plus two additional batteries. If anyone is interested, please PM me and let's work out a deal.
