if you bought the 350 QX with version 2 firmware, the GPS unit will be mounted in the #3 motor arm (right rear) If the V2 firmware was installed on the original 350 QX you will have to check out the mode lights as the GPS may not have been moved.

answer 2
The easiest way would be to bind it to a radio and check the colors of the flight modes. If you do not have a radio, you can not use it anyway. If you can not do this, there is probably a way to buy the interface cable and check it with your computer? I do not know how to do that but Horizon customer service should.

The 350QX board is pre-programmed for optimal performance in Smart, Stability, and Agility modes. Additional programming is not supported and should not be required.

No it doesn't, you'd have to add a telemetry module to it and get the appropriate sensors you wish to have. Like battery, temp, and so on. It would also have to be bound at the same time you bind your 350 to your TX.

The ETA is 10/18/13. Judging from what happened with the nQX some shops may get it early and then I'd imagine after that ship it will be backordered again while they get all the preorders out.

Hello MASIHUNOW. The maximum amount of weight the 350 QX can lift is 480 grams. Keep in mind this can cause increased difficulty in flying and will diminish flight time.

I installed the telemtry transmitter TM1000 with the altimeter module on my Blade 350QX using velcro for the receiver and a piece of clear packaging tape for the module and receiver attenna. I used a short servo lead to connect the receiver through the landing skid port and plugged it into one of the the gimbal axis connections. I then binded the two together and now I have an altitiude reading of my quad copter on my transmitter. I will attempt to mount the telemtry transmitter inside the nose of the 350QX and add a battery voltage and temperature sensors.

The manuel states 45 meters or about 148 feet, but I wouldn't take it that high what most people don't realize is the winds that high can be much higher than at ground level and take you heli out of range of your control.

The receiver is a actually a 2in1 mother board. That is also a problem, because it uses a simple short a single antenna, which makes the range quite short, making it not very useful for long-ish range FPV.

Question
Can the red and white lights be reversed - front to back?
I noticed on the flight videos, that there are red and white lights on the front and back for navigation. It appears the 'red' lights are in the front for forward flight, while the white lights are in the rear. I think it would be better if the white lights are in the front for forward flight, and the red lights in the rear. Can this be changed?

It is not recommended using video-streaming WiFi on the 350QX. WiFi may saturate the 2.4 GHz band and cause undesirable performance.
Use of the GoPros included included remote is fine.

Hello JohnQ,

I highly recommend getting the DX6i transmitter to fly the 350 QX. It will be an investment that will last you for a while and give you the flexibility to adjust parameters to fit your flying style.

Your Spectrum 6i should remember the bind. Remember to put all of your trims at neutral and hold the throtel at the lowest position when you turn on your 350QX. Then with your throtel trim press it up 2 times you should herar your 350QX beap. Also it takes mine at least 60 seconds or more to link to the GPS and only then will the status lite stop blinking.

I would say the max lift would be a gimbal and a camera and even a small battery if you need one for your gimbal, that would be about all it can lift safely without putting too much strain on the props and motors, plus the more you pack on the shorter the flight times will be.
