I'm in...looks awesome. A lot of features for $419.

SAFE looks pretty nice on the eflite apprentice too. Hopefully this implementation is done as well as that. And, I've been wanting GPS and return to home for a while. Can't wait to see the review Michael. Try to make them give it to you eaaaarly....lol.

Glad I saw this announcement. I was so ready to buy the phantom but it looks like I will be buying the 350 qx instead. It has same technology as phantom and it looks sexier. In addition, the price is really good. I cannot wait.

Looks like they put the ESC's under each brushless motor for better cooling like DJI has done with their new slick "800." Like this much better than the DJI Phantom. This will be my entry into multirotors this fall, if there's any of them left!

This one looks sexy....! I like it a lot, way much better looking than the Phantom and at a better price-level.
What's the catch?
