Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Blade 350QX RTF video review

I found this interesting video review on the 350 QX. It really flies well and will get a lot of new folk started.



I don';t really expect to see one in every household. But this kind of easy entry could see those put off by the complexity getting into the hobby, even if only peripherally.

Not sure what he';s basing his conclusion on it being low powered, mine is very fast, both in the climb and in horizontal speed. It has plenty of power to carry fpv gear, which to be honest is not heavy stuff. His comment on disarming is a bit silly too. Most multis rotors spin when armed, plus the 350qx auto cuts the power if a rotor is manually stopped by hitting something. It also sounds a loud alarm when this happens, which acts as a lost model alarm. As he does say though, the disarming is easily done via a throttle cut mix on a better transmitter. The only gripe I do have is........... I actually enjoy flying my home build better than the 350qx. Mainly because its mostly my own work.

I have to say that I did not find any of the stated "Cons" were deal breakers. If I had discovered this when I first started out I would readily have bought it. 

I think I';d like to see a side by side "shoot out" between this and the Phantom  :smiley:

I think there is another thing to think about - it being a Horizon Hobby product the cost of spare is going to be disproportionately high, I remember clearly the cost of Blade MSr tail rotors - a tiny piece of plastic that used to cost around £2 when we all know in reality it would cost about 5p to make and with the quantities they sell the mark up is ridiculous!!!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

Got to say I agree with the spares prices, they are high. I generally find that Horizon products are priced at the high end of the bracket but that any item I have bought has been of above average quality. I also like their after sales service and tend to factor that into the equation when considering a purchase. I';ve bought a lot of RC stuff over the years and apart from the odd bargain, I';ve found that the old adage of ';buy cheap, buy twice'; tends to apply. I';m not knocking anyone who budgets tightly with their hobby, as we all have our own monetary restrictions and buy accordingly.
