The 350QX Gets an Upgrade with Firmware 2.0!
Think the 350QX can’t get any better? Horizon Hobby has upgraded the firmware of the Blade 350QX to version 2.0, featuring a new flight mode built for ultra stable Aerial Photography and new features new and improved compass and GPS technology. In the new BNF and RTF versions, the quadcopter comes with an improved charger, and the start (arming) procedures have also been improved as well.
Already own a 350QX? Never Fear! The firmware will be made available early April for current 350QX owners, and at this point Blade Helicopter states: ‘For owners of the original 350 QX (BLH7800/BLH7880) an optional upgrade solution for the firmware will be available by early April for a nominal fee’. Personally, if one has already paid over the $470 plus tax for the quadcopter, the software upgrade should be free like the updates for Spektrum controllers. Unless for some reason it’s more than just downloading an update. Maybe I need to buy a cable?
The new 350QX V2 will be on hobby store shelves shortly. The prices still are the same for both versions of the quadcopter ($470 for RTF and $420 for the BNF), but look for the ‘A‘ at the end of the part number (BLH7800A and BLH7880A, respectively) for the updated software.
