Adding FPV to a Blade 350 Qx 3

by Evan-inc. 16. April 2015 16:14

Note this could be easily modified to work a QX 1 or QX 2

Flying with FPV is fun however Blade does not offer any turnkey options for doing so. Here is a quick guide to add FPV in a semi DIY manner.

First a shopping list (these items can be mixed and matched, and not all are necessary, just give a good assortment of items; also these items can be had for cheaper, just do some searching on eBay)

Second; the 350 QX3 has a cable that comes out from the body with ground; 12V; and a PWM signal on it. (Hint, the PWM could be used for a servo that adjusts tilt using the gimbal controls on your controller) Looking at the connector from the front, the top being the side with the latching point  (top is facing us in the picture below; starting from the left the pin order is as follows; Ground; 12V; No Connect; PWM. For this project we only need Ground and 12V. (I recommend checking these pins with a Multimeter)

 

Pinout;

 

Real life;

Now Use these pins to run ground and 12V to their respective pins on the FPV Transmitter

 

Next connect the GoPro cable to the mini USB port on your GoPro; it acts as a video out for our purposes.

 

Next, connect the other end to the FPV transmitter.

 

Tape and Zip-Tie your cable and transmitter to look something like this.

 

When complete;


Keep in mind FPV works on 5.8 GHz not 2.4 (this is what the blade transmitter/receiver uses) thus you should not notice any interference. Tune in your FPV goggles and transmitter per the documentation they came with.

 

GO Out and FLY!

This is a picture of what is called a “military switch” that I found. Background is some back felt that I picked up at my local fabric store/shop.

365 Photo – Day 1

by Evan-inc. 11. September 2012 19:34
This is a coca cola can that I acquired in Lyon France. The background is just a nice shirt laid on a table (good way to get cool patterns). Hardest part was getting the surface free of blemished (specs of dust etc.) had to get out a micro-fiber cloth to clean the can.

My Tripod

by Evan-inc. 11. September 2012 12:10

For 4 years now I have been very active in the video/photo area of life and have accumulated many things. This is the tripod I chose to buy. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/838216-REG/Davis_Sanford_PRO_VISTA_TRIPOD_ELVATION.html

The Davis and Sanford pro vista tripod is a very good buy in that it has an amazing head and I have found it to be very good both for photo and video. The only drawback I have found is that the head is mounted on a pressurized shaft, I’m assuming so you can raise it with ease, however because of this I am never able to use the high adjust in the head because if I use it while filming…. There goes my shot and because I have a hard drive based camera the hard drive crashes.   

Over all I recommend this tripod because it is a great package for the price (comes with a dolly)

If I were to run into to money and decided I needed a new one, the one I have my eye on is liked below.
