This FPV quad moves with endurance and speed – reportedly upwards of 45 mph with 25 minute battery time, both quite impressive stats where they are borne out. A sleek, aerodynamic design, not dissimilar to DJI’s Phantom 2, new system upgrades to keep ahead of the industry curve and wisely considered programming features make this a well realized UAV. GPS and altitude sensor, programmable missions, ready for FPV flight with drone homing, QR X350 Pro is another contender from Walkera.
The Devo F7 transmitter with LCD screen provides precise controls and FPV camera views in addition to being ergonomic and aesthetically appealing, while the GPS keeps the QR X350 stable in flight and able to hover free of operator interference. Optional prop guards are a welcome feature and are light and durable, certainly a better bounce off the wall or fellow UAV enthusiast than a propeller on puree.
The landing gear design is different from the QR X350 Premium with independent legs as opposed to connected shafts, and appears more structurally stable during landing. The 2-axis gimbal is sufficiently low to avoid catching the landing gear in the camera lens, though in the extended tilt position the prop guards are occasionally visible. Leg extensions are available to raise the landing gear to keep the camera off the tarmac. The QR X350 Pro is available with the iLooks+ HD camera, though several users recommend buying the gimbal separately and running with a GoPro. The iLooks footage represented online is less than stellar.
On a pleasant note, Walkera broadcasts on the same frequency as Fat Shark, the name to drop in FPV goggles, which keeps them highly accessible to hobbyists and pros who already own some of this equipment and don’t want to buy a complete new set with every systems upgrade. The Walkera QR X350 Pro will support off-market batteries while their hot competitor, the DJI Phantom, only accepts DJI’s proprietary storage. Something to keep in mind when it comes to unseen charges.
I am very impressed with how easy this thing is to fly. It is very responsive, flies steady...camera is very clear and works great...only downside...is the charging time.
Great quad copter so far...Hover mode works and stays on spot even on a windy day. Return home is accurate. Can fly fast...Not for entry level RC pilots.
The flight modes all work great...I feel the X350 Pro is very stable and great fun to fly.
Fast and has longer battery life...doesn't come with a camera, so if you want to shoot aerial video or photos, you'll have to purchase a camera separately.
Had a nice test flight with this product, it's very easy to install and fly...a real pro gear, not a toy...Make sure to balance the props to get the most steady picture.
