Introducing the QR X350 GPS Phantom GoPro RC Drone

Walkera QR X350 GPS Phantom GoPro General Overview

Mindblowing is the word. Walkera is getting serious this time as they try to take on the famous DJI phantom. If you are looking for a GoPro Quadcopter as cool as the Phantom but slightly lower budget, the Walkera QR X350 would be recommended. In fact, the Walkera QR X350 has lots of amazing features that are new and innovative. It is apparent that Walkera has spent a great deal on R&D to create this sensational Quadcopter. Let's find out more about its features and specifications below.

Features

  • With GPS Auto Pilot Function, your helicopter will never get lost. With the assistance of GPS, the Walkera QR X350 is fully capable of returning to its starting point by itself. Remember those times where you are afraid of flying your favorite RC model too far because they might be out of sight and eventually fall into the jungle? Well fear no more with the QR X350 GPS system.
  • So how do you activate this awesome GPS home returning function? With what Walkera describes as "One key to go home", simply hit the radio switch and the QR X350 will return and land by itself, as easy as that.
  • Superb hovering function. To elaborate, it means that the QR X350 has an enhanced altitude sensor which adopts the GPS technology to find out the exact location of the model, this allows the QR X350 to hover without changing at a very precise coordinates on earth, very impressive indeed.
  • In case of emergency, the QR X350 also has a built-in fail safe detection which returns to starting point and land safely without any damage. This is an add-on to the GPS auto pilot function.
  • As its name suggests, the QR X350 is compatible for GoPro camera recording. The Walkera QR X350 has an anti-vibration camera mount which allows you to take beautiful pictures and videos with minimal distortions from movements. Note that the GoPro camera is excluded from the packages. The FPV package includes a DV04 camera.
  • Fly the Walkera QR X350 on your iPad/ iPhone. With the Wifi module, you can control the movements and view the flight on your apple devices.

Begun, the Clone Wars have.

Really, "Phantom?" Maybe I'll hop in my Chevy Mustang and go to the LHS for a look!

Is there any such thing as one Chinese manufacturer suing another Chinese manufacturer over stuff like this?

No comment on the product itself, as that's premature. But ... what a hoot! I'm sure the DJI guys are gritting their teeth.

@OP:

Can you tell us:
  1. How the FPV version transmit and receives Video?
  2. Can the DV04 be replaced by a GoPro to act as a FPV and recording Camera? Another words, can QR 350 connect and talk to GoPro?
  3. On the receiving side, can we hook up a Goggle to the F7 radio?

Thanks!

Many times, the RCG contributors just put these out when they come across something interesting, or neat. I am confused by the new format of all the subheadings (news, articles, reviews).

Sleepy~ Have you any first hand experience with this, or did you just want to share info about the product?

Can it support a Spektrum compatible receiver?

Any video from a GoPro mounted on the quad?

What's the flight time with a GoPro mounted?

Brushless gimbal support?

Figure I'd just ask all at once...

Unreal , Blade is coming out with the 350 QX quad, so I guess this is Walkera's way of taking both DJI and Blade out to the wood shed

This is just a press release that we then use as a news article.

The RCG channel format is a way to update content and keep the site fresh and allow users to pick their fav format. New product releases are great as people love to see what is available on the market. And we are just providing the news not endorsing the products. We are just letting our members know what's available.

We may be getting a unit for review and if we do we will do a full test, flight video, feature test, etc.

Cool I'm interested. Are the props proprietary? I trying to compare this to the 350qx and parts support is an issue. Blade has local part supplies well covered.

Watched the videos on Walkeras site and answered my own question on the props. They have a slot shape set to the motor. So you have to use the props from Walkera.

Thats what I thought; I do like the new format. It has been informative of lots of new products I otherwise did not know existed.

Keep up the great work! I have really been impressed with FlyingGiants and the forum has really grown on me the last year. Thanks for your contributions!

I thought that it was DJI until I read half way down. Guess my mind just omitted Walkera. LOL
