Thanks for the review. Good job.

You didn't mention the price point span, but it appears to be $420 - $470. So, yes, this appears to be direct competition for the Phantom. Sort of a "Phantom Lite"?

A question, can the modified DX5 be used as a "normal" transmitter?

[[ I said in my previous deleted post that I thought you could mount props since it appeared to have a threaded post like the Hextronik DT series, but realized the detail you inserted into the video was yours. ]]

The 'safe mode' (props stopped) is indeed very troubling.

I am really pleased with my 350QX, works out of the box, the GPS hold is amazing, and RTH a great safety net, I had great fun with gopro, have fitted a cheap brushless gimbal from ebay which works superbly ($100 delivered), and just yesterday bought FPV gear to try on this, am loving it so far!

Love my 350... a little edit to your review: you can actually kill the motors while on the ground by holding the trainer switch up for a couple of seconds.

I've seen replacement frames for sale for around $20. You said the motors weren't upgradeable. Is that because they are soldered to the ESC or because it uses non-standard size mounts? I was thinking about buying just the replacement frame and filling it with my own choice of electronics. Since you have the quad, does it look like that would be possible?
