I was at the Weak Signals show in Toledo where I found this very neat looking body for my Blade 350QX. $75 bucks later and about 2 hours of time here is the result! I love the new look and added CARBON blades that do not require the use of hubs, it flies great and looks super cool! I also have a video I made to show it in flight. I am very pleased with the quality and performance of the Blade 350QX, very good platform for entry level video enthusiasts.

Hope you enjoy!

I made this light module to help with orientation while night flying. As anyone that owns a 350 QX knows at night if at low altitude when flying towards you it disappears because the factory lights are on the bottom. Well not mine, not anymore!

I built this mount using the stock cheapo Gopro mount originally included with the Blade 350 and fitted a couple of carbon fiber tubes to it. I added led lights and strobes to the tips to help see it and also to light up anything that may come into its path. The lights and strobe controller can be bought cheap on ebay and and the whole thing can be fabricated in one evening. I used a Turnigy 1000mah 3S lipo which will give you four flights. This mount makes it easy to switch to using the Gopro and back to lights in less than one minute. Have fun with it and hope you make one so you can bug that nosey neighbor, everybody has one of those.....

Here is a short video I put together of my Blade 350QX
