DJI Phantom vs Walkera QR X350

The Walkera X350 is a newer quadcopter and is designed to compete directly with the highly successful DJI Phantom line of quadcopters. In this article we’ll compare directly the two models and give our recommendation about which is the best one to buy. Read on for our DJI Phantom vs Walkera QR X350 quadcopter showdown!

First though, check out a few YouTube video reviews about the DJI Phantom vs Walker QR X350 – great review Brian Hall !

After testing out both of these quadcopters, I’d highly recommend that you purchase a DJI Phantom – whether it be an original Phantom for $400 or an updated version with integrated video (i.e. the Vision models). While Walkera has built a decent quadcopter, they simply haven’t matched DJI’s intuitive design and are certainly lagging in accuracy, flight experience, and safety. While the Phantom line had its challenges with fly-aways, most of these were due to user error when calibrating GPS. The issues with the Walkera QR X350 seem to be more inherent to the craft itself and while they may be fixed with software updates etc., Walkera is simply not on the level of DJI.

Still, I’m curious to see how Walkera will evolve in the future and if it can launch a strong competitor to the DJI Phantom line. We will soon have more head to head quadcopter reviews and showdowns so check back often, or shoot me a note if there’s a certain match up you’d like to see!
