Reading is hard.

Nowhere was the Vision mentioned. You assumed he meant Vision. He said (see above) Phantom 2.

Also, nowhere did I mention that I "like the dji better".

No no, that's the vision, yes it is the Phantom 2, but it is the vision edition, which comes with heaps of things, mainly the camera hanging off the bottom of the quad, which is remote controlled and sends a live video feed down to an IOS device. That's something that the 350 does not have.

The Phantom 2 RTF, which would be the equivalent to the 350 QX RTF. Here's the links for both:
Phantom 2 RTF
350 QX RTF

It's kind of unfair to compare the prices of two completely different levels of products.

I wasn't challenging you, I was just putting out correct information so everyone reading along, like myself, can have the facts. Don't go jumping on people about doing research if you aren't willing to do it yourself. Or make jabs like "DJI prayer group", and "DJI Playground" at people that are just voicing their opinion, i'm not sure why you're taking this so personal, I guess your avatar says a lot about your maturity level.

Took my 350 qx for a flight tonight with my go-pro attached and at about 150ft i see my prop break off and witness the free fall all the way down landing on the only asphalt roof within 400ft around. needless to say its in bits and pieces now. Did some research and ended up here. Is HH still replacing these after a prop failure? I don't even have the original box or receipt anymore. I do though have the flight failure recorded.

Great info here thanks

I imagine they are still honoring it, if you had the "A" props on it. Give HH Customer Service a call and I bet they will help you out. Mine did the same thing (on the "A" props), and I sent it to them, received back a completely repaired quad (looked brand new) with "B" props. I have 25+ flights since not a single problem.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the support. I called today and he just told me to send it in with the repair form. Hopefully they can help me out too. it was the old props for sure.

I just happened to stumble onto this thread, I don't even have a 350qx. I'm sure it was already mentioned somewhere but I just wanted to let everyone know that I saw that red rocket hobbies sells cf blades for the 350. Hope this helps someone.
