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.

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. Good Luck

Question
Is there somewhere to get help programming a radio other than a Spektrum for this Blade 350QX? Like JR?
Hello. I just purchased this Blade 350QX and own a JR11X radio. There is nothing in the manual about how to program any radio other than Spektrum radios. A little help programming the modes would be great.

What Switch are you holding.....? There is NO need to hold, just throw the switch (Flap/Gyro switch) DOWN, in the "1" position. Your Transmitter should be setup for the Flap/Gyro switch, to be the "Return Home" function. My TX is also a DX6i....NOTE: Leave the "return home" switch, in the DOWN position until the QX lands...Reduce the Throttle to lowest position, before switching the "return Home" switch to the UP position.

How do I switch to low rate on the DX6i when using it with the 350 QX?
Also, how do I change the rudder rate in d/r expo? I want to make it rotate slower, but when I change the setting, the motors will not start.

Thanks for any help!

The motors will not start until the rate switch is in the high position. You switch to low rates by flipping the switch you assigned for dual rates. You need to lower the low rudder dual rate setting down until it pirouettes at the speed you prefer.

Yes, the camera emits a signal when it is turned on, even before you opt to turn on WiFi. It knocks out the GPS lock capability. There seems to be a field temp fix by putting an EMF shield around the camera, leaving the lens exposed.

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?

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.
