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.

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.

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.

Hey, the quick start guide posted under the Manuals tab on the 350QX product page includes setup instructions for "DX7/DX7SE" and "DX7S", so it's a safe assumption that it'll work

I wouldn't think there is with the standard landing gear because on mine the camera is about 1/2" off the ground, however I just viewed a video on youtube where they added a round foam pontoon to the gear and it looked like it added about 2" to the height that should give you room to design a gimbal to fit.

The new GoPro has telemetry built in and you can get telemetry packs for the older ones. You could also add your own video Tx/Rx and attach it on there somewhere.

answer 2
The GoPro newer models have WiFi transmit capability to a free iPhone/iPad app where you can control the camera and watch the live video even while recording, up to 600 ft. The newest Hero3+ is close to real-time (about 1 sec delay), the older ones are 3-4 seconds delayed.

The big issue however is that GoPro is transmitting at 2.4Ghz and is in close proximity to the Quad's receiver using the same frequencies. This could easily affect range and possible completely swamp the signal. The Phantom folks specifically state that the GoPro's WiFi should NOT be used and I would agree that this is likely the case here as well.

If you are a tinkerer, it is possible to get realtime video out of the GoPro and feed it to a 5.8Ghz transmitter and go that route. But now you need a receiver and display on the ground.

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.

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.

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.

Yes it does, I tested it by lifting off about 3' off the ground and shut my transmitter off. The quad went into RTH and landed where I initially took off and then shut down

yes, it will RTH. The instruction manual states: if the 350QX is flying and has a good GPS lock with a home position set, it will activate the Return Home function upon the loss of the transmitter signal.

The new GoPro 3's fit in the mount supplied with no issues.

I use a GoPro 2 and I used the top part of the mount that hooks to the 350 QX. Then I attached my camera with the waterproof case on it to that. The stock camera case bolts right up to the stock mount that comes with the 350 QX with NO modification.
