This is the Ready-to-Fly (RTF) version of the Chroma Camera Drone from Blade, which includes the Spektrum DX4 transmitter (radio contorller). The DX4 features DSMX 2.4 GHz technology. 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 includes the GPH4 3-axis brushless gimbal allowing you to capture aerial shots with a GoPro HERO4 action camera.
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.
3-Axis Gimbal for GoPro HERO4
The version of the Chroma includes a 3-axis brushless gimbal stabilizer designed specifically for flying the GoPro HERO4 action camera. The gimbal provides image stabilization by compensating for aircraft movement. It power directly from the quadcopter's flight battery
DX4 Transmitter Included
A pre-bound Spektrum DX4 transmitter (radio controller) is included with this RTF version of the quadcopter. It is a full-range transmitter operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency range. Integrated signal processing technology helps boost range and protect the signal against interference - especially in "noisy" environments where a lot of 2.4 GHz systems (such as Wi-Fi) are simultaneously in use
The DX4 also features spring-loaded control sticks designed to make the Chroma easy to fly. For instance, when using the throttle stick, instead of having to hunt for the right power setting when entering a hover, just climb or descend to the altitude you want and let go of the stick. The Chroma will automatically hold altitude when the throttle stick snaps back to neutral. The same goes for the other controls. Once you have the aircraft where you want it, just let go of the sticks. With the sticks at neutral, SAFE technology will stabilize the Chroma and hold position until you are ready to fly somewhere else
Flight Control Modes
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
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
