A bit pricey, looks like a child's toy, does not come with a camera (sold separately to the tune of an additional $300), fragile propellers, and still an amazing device for the older boys (men over 18 who love flying devices). The functions it can perform are mind boggling, functions such as the return home feature are add on features on $1,500 quad copters and usually very intricate, but on this bad boy it's standard and done with the flip of a switch. I flew it at night with the lights on and it hovered 150 feet high with 20 mile an hour wind and stayed stationery with the flip of a switch, and with another flip of a switch it landed itself at the same location it took off from. WOW!!! The agility mode is insane, too fast, I found myself switching to stability mode whenever the speed was making it disappear from view. Some friends who are helicopter gurus complained it was too easy to set up and fly, which to me seems stupid because I personally don't have the time to spend setting up a more expensive copter and I certainly enjoy the stability of this copter regardless of how easy it makes it to fly a quad copter.

First, two warnings:

1) This is not a child's toy. The extra size makes a qualitative change from those little mall 'copters. First, the battery - which is designed to get as much power/ounce as possible, not safety - is much, much bigger, and so stores much, much more energy, meaning it's much, much more dangerous. Second, the props are much larger, much sturdier and have much more power behind them. Running into a mall copter will sting like the dickens, but is unlikely to seriously injure you. These props could take off your fingers at speed.

2) As others have mentioned, Blade recalled the props. You shouldn't get a quad with the olds ones now, but double check: the props should have an engraved B (or possibly C, etc. if they revise them again) on the top of the hub.

Ok, now that that's out of the way - this is simply an amazing quad. It brings capabilities to the hobbyist that (well, weren't - the clones are out now) except for significantly more money, or building a DYI version.

Smart mode - well, I tend to not fly in it. The manual warns that going from smart mode to one of the others "could be a challenge". They failed to note that going the other way - for an experienced flyer - could also be a challenge. Learning to ignore orientation is easy, but the changes as it changes its position relative to me is confusing. However, it makes an incredible "Panic" button. Lose control in the middle of a roll in agility mode? Flip to smart mode and let go of the controls. It'll right itself.

The other interesting thing about smart mode is for use as a camera platform. I've had other so-called camera platforms before.

UPDATE, I FELT IT WAS FAIR TO COME BACK AND UPGRADE THIS FROM 3 STARS TO 4. THE REASON WHY IS AT THE VERY BOTTOM.

I ordered this over the Chinese competition, for a few reasons.

A. I did not want to give such a large amount of money directly to a Chinese owned company,

B. I did not want to have to TRY and deal with Chinese customer support if I had issues.

C. I did not like the toy looking transmitter of the Phantom.

D. I wanted a real hobby grade transmitter.

C. I wanted to support and American company,

E. I have heard Horizon Hobby customer support is "second to none"

I open up the DX6i transmitter box, and I am happy. It is what I wanted, a big, complicated, computer transmitter that reminds me of my hobby days 15 years ago. I feel like it is a precise tool, not some toy. Inversely, I open up the box on the 350Qx, and am not so impressed. It is smaller than I imagined, and has kind of a cheap feel to it. The light weight, brittle plastic body is someone flexible, and two of the motors make clicking sounds when you spin the props(rotors).

I watch a couple videos online to see how to program the transmitter for the 350qx, and I am flying it in about an hour.

SMART MODE: The Smart Mode does what is says, by making it so you don't have to remember what direction the craft is going. You push the stick to the right and it goes right, regardless of which direction the vehicle is facing.However, in smart mode, it feels like the quad is fighting me. It is sluggish to respond, and doesn't do what I want it to. It flies rough, and you can see that on the video camera.

STABILITY MODE: In Stability Mode, the craft flies like you would expect.

I have had so much fun the past few weeks. This quad has been perfect from day one! I learned on a smaller version before getting the Blade 350QX but i don't think I needed to since this one is so easy to fly in safe mode. I fly it every evening before dark in the stability mode. I would highly recommend this quad to anyone who wants to learn to fly and be able to take it to advanced acrobatics later. Replacement parts if needed are very reasonable too.
