Default Night Maiden Blade 350QX

Well I couldn't wait till the morning to maiden my new Blade 350QX. This is my first Quadcopter. I was really tentative while flying it. I was extremely surprised that the battery lasted for 11 min. I think I'm going to really enjoy this new type of flying. I'm looking forward to recording some video up in the mountains at sunset. My video is taken with a GoPro Hero2, so the nightshots have some white noise that I couldn't filter out with software.

Nicely done and you are a very brave man doing a maiden at night. Sure you will have some fun with this once you get used to it. Looking forward to some videos of the mountains bathed in a sunset. I am still on the edge of getting a quad see what happens in the spring.

Default Prop adapters * DJI Propellers

I'm a little nervous to attach my $500 go pro to it with the stock B props.
I just ordered some propadapters and DJI propellers. I think I'll feel more comfortable knowing the props are attached the 'old fashioned way'.

I only got to fly that night about 8 batteries and then the next day for 1 battery before we were hit with SUBZERO weather and snow. It's supposed to be only 1 to 3 degrees everyday for the next week
