The Range question is another "gap" that's pissing me off, as I cant find ANY information on the 350qx receiver. Spektrum tx's (specially DX8 and up) are adequately powerful for some pretty decent range, depending on the RX.

Satellites? Telemetry? I NEED TO KNOW!!! Argh!

Well the Blade has anywhere from 5-15 minute battery life depending on payload and flying style.

Phantom

Just been looking on the DJI site and they have a small description of the phantom vision. It's got a built in camera with a wifi link to your mobile phone.
Interesting to keep an eye on this, but I am still looking forward to my pre orderd Blade which is my step up from micro helicopters and my AR Drone 2.

350QX from 7:40!!!

Listening now (don't know what's in the podcast yet ;-))

EDIT: Ok, there is no new info, except that it's telling that the 350QX is probably shipped already waiting at customs, so probably released in two weeks, three at most (when held at customs).
As the podcast was released on September 1st, that means the rumored date of September 19th still holds up.

I pulled the trigger and pre-ordered one from HH. Can't wait! Now, I need to sell some other stuff so I can justify this one

Pre Ordered also

Have mine on order also. Will be a long 2 weeks. But should be well worth the wait.

Some very interesting things I noticed in the 350 XQ podcast. It sounds like Blade is going to introduce a GoPro gimbal and a separate FPV setup in the future...very cool indeed.

Glad I've had my BNF 350 QX on pre order from Hobby Zone for $377.99 shipped for awhile now...can't wait!

Regards,
John

With Hobby Zone it's all about the coupons.

I purchased a few things from them recently and about 5 or 6 days later I received a 10% off coupon for my next order...I used that to pre order my 350 QX and that's how I purchased the 350 QX for $377.99.

Regards,
John

I ordered mine about 10 days ago from hobb-e-mart and the rcgroups12 discount worked back then. I was told they expect to ship on 9/19.
