Engineered With SAFE™ Technology: SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology is a revolutionary electronic flight envelope protection system. It also offers smoother flight capability that battles windy conditions for you and multiple modes so you can fly with the level of protection and assistance that suits any given moment of the flight. These modes make it easy for anyone to start flying and the ability to change the flight experience as they progress their skills.
Stability Mode (selectable high or low angle): In these flight settings, the 180 QX HD operates with bank limiting and SAFE™ technology enhanced self–leveling characteristics. Two Stability modes provide the pilot with a high and low angle setting, allowing the quadcopter to be flown smoothly or more aggressively depending on your video needs.
Agility Mode: In Agility Mode, the 180 QX HD has no flight envelope protection. All bank and pitch angle limits are removed and the pilot can experience aggressive aerobatic flight with AS3X® technology to provide a crisp, locked–in feeling at all times.
Included Flight Camera: Both the BNF and RTF versions of the Blade 180 QX HD include the E–Flite® EFC™–720 camera for use with the included camera holster. This lightweight camera is capable of software–enhanced 720p resolution video recording as well as 1.3 megapixel still image capture and can be used on other aircraft. Included for use with the camera are a 2GB Micro–SD storage card and USB charging cable.
Dynamic Transmitter Functions: At any time during flight, with the flip of a switch, a pilot can trigger the photo or video function on the E–Flite® EFC™–720 camera with the included 5–channel transmitter. This functionality can also be programmed into a compatible DSMX® transmitter for BNF models.
Indoor or Outdoor Flight: The 180 QX HD is powerful enough to be flown in outdoor conditions, or indoors in an appropriate setting.
