This is the Bind-n-Fly (BNF) version of the Chroma Camera Drone from Blade, meaning that a 5+ channel, DSMX transmitter is required - ideal for users who are already invested in a radio system. A 400-sized X-configuration quad, the Chroma is design to appeal to a range of users, form hobby fliers to shooters looking to capture aerial angles. To this end it is designed to be used with a GoPro HERO series action camera (camera and gimbal available separately).

A GPS-based flight control system - the brains that control the aircraft - enables varying degrees of autopilot redundancy, with options to accommodate pilots of every skill level. This feature is centered around Blade's SAFE technology, which includes Smart, and AP (Aerial Photography) modes. Additional safety features include Return Home, which brings the aircraft back to the pilot at the press of a button, as well as adjustable flight boundaries to ensure the quadcopter stays within a specified range.

Also included in the bundle is a 5400mAh "cartridge -style" flight battery lasting up to 30 minutes along with a battery charger.

GoPro Ready
This version of the Chroma is designed to accommodate a GoPro HERO series action camera, giving your videos an exciting new aerial perspective. Both the GoPro and the gimbal required for mounting are available separately
Bind-n-Fly (BNF) Compatible (Transmitter Available Separately)
The Chroma BNF version does not include a transmitters (radio controller) - ideal for users who have an existing radio to use. It is compatible with DSM2/DSMX transmitters that have five or more channels

Flight Control Modes

Smart Mode
While in Smart Mode, SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology engages the SAFE Circle which prevents the Chroma from flying too close to its pilot. When in a hover, GPS and altimeter sensors keep the quadcopter in a consistent stable position. The Stick Relativity feature allows the Chroma to follow the directional inputs from a pilot regardless of the orientation of the quadcopter
AP (Aerial Photography) Mode
For more experienced drone pilots. In this mode, the Blade 350 QX3 responds to control inputs like a conventional RC aircraft without Stick Relativity. It also gives the pilot more control authority by turning off the SAFE Circle and allowing steeper bank and pitch angles. This makes it possible to get faster panning and tracking shots when shooting high-energy, action video
Return to Home
Safe landings with the flip of a switch. The Chroma returns itself to the start-up point and lands for you. This is ideal for first-time flyers that aren't quite ready to land themselves. It's also a way to regain visual control if you accidentally lose sight in flight
Adjustable Flight Boundaries
Never fly beyond altitude and distance limits you define. This will help you avoid restricted airspace, flying over private property, or losing visual contact

Design Features

Cartridge-Style Battery
With this design you simply "slot-in" the battery for quick changeovers - not finicky lead to connect. The included battery features a capacity of 5400mAh, which powers the quadcopter for up to 30 minute
Elevated GPS and Compass
Both the GPS and compass units are mounted on a mast that is elevated above the rest of the aircraft to avoid interference from the radio systems
Fast, Toolless Assembly
Self-tightening props, snap in/out landing gear and slide on/off camera or gimbal installation all help ensure you get setup and flying in less time while being able to easily break the quadcopter down for transport
