Walkera QR X350 PRO quadcopter review

Quad­copters are pop­u­lar with mod­ern res­i­dents of megac­i­ties. The trend is active­ly pro­mot­ed in urban areas, our com­pa­tri­ots have already man­aged to appre­ci­ate self­ies from the air. To obtain a high-qual­i­ty image, you must use the appro­pri­ate equip­ment. A wor­thy mod­el is the Walk­era QR X350 PRO quad­copter, which replaced the X350. Walk­era devel­op­ers always lis­ten to the com­ments that users make, which in turn leads to pos­i­tive results soon­er or lat­er.

Motors

The Walk­era QR X350PRO quad­copter is equipped with PRO-Z-06B Con­vex Cov­er WK-WS-28–008C brush­less motors. The devel­op­er does not dis­close per­for­mance infor­ma­tion. The poten­tial is suf­fi­cient to com­plete the tasks.

Camera

Depend­ing on the con­fig­u­ra­tion, the Walk­era QR X350PRO quad­copter can be equipped with a top-end cam­era — Walk­era iLook + FPV with a built-in 5.8GHz FPV mod­ule. Allows you to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly take pho­tos / videos, as well as broad­cast a video stream in real time with­out delay. Max. pho­to res­o­lu­tion: 4032 × 3024 JPEG. Max. video res­o­lu­tion: 1920 × 1080p at 30fps. The qual­i­ty of the footage is com­mend­able. For real­iz­ing first-per­son flight, it sup­ports pair­ing with most ana­log FPV devices, includ­ing the famous Fat­Shark FPV gog­gles.

Uni­ver­sal 2‑axis mechan­i­cal sus­pen­sion — Walk­era G‑2D. Pro­vides con­trolled from con­trol equip­ment sta­bi­lized pho­to / video shoot­ing by means of UAVs. Adapt­ed for the instal­la­tion of GoPro action cam­eras. Comes with the Walk­era QR X350PRO drone in two fac­to­ry con­fig­u­ra­tions.

Food

By default, the quad­copter is equipped with a 3‑cell lithi­um-poly­mer bat­tery 11.1V 5200mAh 25C (for the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, the bat­tery capac­i­ty is 2200mAh). Accord­ing to the spec­i­fi­ca­tion, it pro­vides a max­i­mum flight time of 25 min­utes. In the test with a mixed style of pilot­ing with the cam­era turned on, this time was no more than 18 min­utes. Charg­ing time from the includ­ed charg­er is 5–7 hours.

Walkera QR X350 PRO quadcopter review

Due to the fact that some users state the fact of recharg­ing the bat­tery with a com­plete charg­er. For safe­ty rea­sons, it is rec­om­mend­ed that you refuse to use the stock charg­er and charge the bat­tery using proven devices, such as “iMax B6-AC”, etc. Recall that even an insignif­i­cant over­charge of LiPo bat­ter­ies leads to at least a mal­func­tion and, at a max­i­mum, to igni­tion!

Control

Quad­copter Walk­era QR X350PRO can be equipped with four types of con­trol equip­ment. They pro­vide the max­i­mum range of con­trolled flight, includ­ing from the first per­son from 1–2 km.

  1. Walk­era Devo7 (7ch 2.4GHz)
  2. Walk­era Devo10 (10ch 2.4GHz)
  3. Walk­era Devo F7 (7‑channel FPV con­troller with built-in 8‑channel VTX 5.8GHz and built-in 3.5″ LCD)
  4. Walk­era Devo F12E (12CH FPV Con­trol Gear with Built-in 32CH VTX 5.8GHz and Built-in 5″ LCD)

Flight modes

By default, the Walk­era QR X350PRO quad­copter received three pro­grammed flight modes:

  1. GPS

    — suit­able for large-scale shoot­ing. In this mode, the elec­tron­ics notice­ably lim­its the angles of incli­na­tion and the dynam­ics of the quad as a whole. The drone becomes more calm. Using the GPS mod­ule, it allows you to main­tain a posi­tion in accor­dance with the cur­rent coor­di­nates with­out the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the pilot.

  2. Altitude

    — suit­able for dynam­ic flights in the “Gas to the floor” mode. Elec­tron­ics ful­ly reveals the poten­tial of the quadro­copter. By means of a baro­met­ric sen­sor, it allows you to hold the alti­tude hor­i­zon­tal­ly. The pilot also needs to con­trol the hor­i­zon­tal dis­place­ment of the drone, which can occur, for exam­ple, due to gusts of wind.

  3. RTH

    (return home) — the clas­sic mode of return to the take-off point. It is acti­vat­ed by the pilot from the tog­gle switch on the con­trol equip­ment, or it is acti­vat­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly when com­mu­ni­ca­tion is lost or when the bat­tery is low, fol­lowed by auto­mat­ic land­ing.

Note the fact that in RTH mode the drone returns to the take­off site and per­forms auto-land­ing with an error of 1.5 — 3m. It is worth con­sid­er­ing this, oth­er­wise the pilot risks drop­ping the quad­copter!

Waypoint flight

The Walk­era QR X350PRO quad­copter can fly way­points using the pre-installed Mis­sion­Plan­ner soft­ware.

Test Drive

In the Walk­era QR X350PRO test, it showed con­fi­dent trac­tion typ­i­cal of bud­get brush­less drones. He espe­cial­ly showed him­self in Alti­tude mode. The con­trol is sta­ble, I didn’t have to get used to it, the work of the 6‑axis gyro­scope and elec­tron­ics in gen­er­al affects. In windy weath­er, flight qual­i­ties dete­ri­o­rate sig­nif­i­cant­ly, the bulk­i­ness of the struc­ture affects.

Price

The quad­copter is sold by the devel­op­er through the Ama­zon Inter­net mar­ket­place at a price of $325.

pros

  • Qual­i­ty
  • Con­troller Open Code
  • brush­less motors
  • GPS mod­ule
  • Way­point flight (via Mis­sion­Plan­ner soft­ware)
  • Flight modes
  • Walk­era iLook+ FPV HD/GoPro Cam­era
  • VTX cam­eras com­pat­i­ble with Fat­Shark FPV Gog­gles
  • Flight range up to 2km / Flight time with cam­era 18 min­utes
  • Auto return instead of take­off with sub­se­quent land­ing (loss of con­nec­tion, weak charge)

Minuses

  • Not ready to fly out of the box (requires set­up of both drone and gim­bal and remote
  • Fac­to­ry low bat­tery warn­ing caus­es drone to crash (need to turn off and set buzzer)
  • Dis­likes fly­ing in windy weath­er
  • Con­stant­ly in flight, the bat­tery com­part­ment opens
  • The hinged part of the drone sup­ports is not fixed (you have to set it man­u­al­ly)

The opti­mal ratio of price and qual­i­ty of the prod­uct. Will be ful­ly appre­ci­at­ed by advanced pilots who like to exper­i­ment with PC set­tings. It does not fly out of the box, it requires gim­bal adjust­ment, dis­abling the fac­to­ry low bat­tery warn­ing sys­tem, due to its incor­rect exe­cu­tion, as well as the instal­la­tion of a sim­ple buzzer to con­trol the low charge and adjust the con­trol equip­ment. Strong­ly dis­likes fly­ing in windy weath­er. The main pur­pose, pro­vid­ed that a good cam­era and a 3‑axis gim­bal are retro­fit­ted, is ama­teur pho­to / video shoot­ing. Age lim­it 14+.
