  • Propellers: The twist-on design makes assembly easy by simply rotating A and B labeled propellers. A propeller tool is also provided to help installation.
  • Battery: The TYPHOON Q500 4K comes with a 5400mAh 3S 11V LiPo battery, allowing for an extended flight time. The sleek pop-open compartment allows you to quickly and effortlessly slide in and swap batteries for even more flight time.
  • 25-Minute Flight Time: Made by experts in electric propulsion and electric aviation, the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K comes with a 5400mAh 3S 11.1V LiPo battery, giving users a superior flight time of up to 25 minutes.
  • Steadygrip: The STEADYGRIP™ CGO3 system combines a 3-axis precision gimbal with Yuneec's 4K Ultra High Definition video camera, allowing you to capture amazing and stable video footage. The camera pitch controller allows precise camera angle control while on-the-go, using a mobile device, with up to a 6.4-inch display.
  • Follow Me: When Follow Me is enabled, the aircraft is leashed to the pilot, who is controlling the ST10+ location. With this feature, flying and capturing video following the pilot is easy, flexible and intuitive.
  • Watch Me: When Watch Me is enabled, the 4K camera stays pointed at the pilot, holding the ST10+, in focus and in frame, no matter which way the drone is maneuvered.
  • Dynamic Return Home: Switch to Home Mode, and the Typhoon will fly back towards the location of the pilot holding the ST10+, and will automatically land within 13 to 26 feet (4 to 8 meters) of the pilot.
  • Distortion-free Lens: The CGO3 camera features a 115-degree wide-angle distortion-free lens that allows you to see the world just as is.
  • Professional Camera Interface: Real-time telemetry data made available on the screen during flight including flight mode, altitude, speed over ground, distance from home, camera status, GPS position coordinates, and aircraft battery status. Controls expected by professionals include adjustable video resolution and white balance, while light exposure can be controlled automatically or manually, including ISO and Shutter Speed.

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
the drone is ok but the customer service is the worst in the business,I purchased a spare battery{$130.00} and it arrived defective and as it was a christmas gift did not find out it was defective and would not charge ,the yuneec customer service refused to replace it because of their 30 day no exceptions policy for their defective parts,their own service agent admitted they get many complaints about this issue and policy,I would not recommend anyone buy a yuneec product because once they get your money your just a bother to them

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
Sounds like they just want an excuse. If it wouldn't charge on the first try it should have been replaced. That is really poor customer service! Yes there are several factors that can affect a batteries' heath and longevity but unless the guy shelved the new battery for three years and then tried to charge it or it went thru a house fire, got stomped on by a horse, got shot or fell out of a plane at 30,000 ft, it should have charged the first time. BUY DJI

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
Ive had batteries sit for months on a shelf sitting at random levels of charge. 30 days is just bad business practices. Their batteries are just probably garbage quality and they're unwilling to stand behind and warranty their product!!!!

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
My lipo i received from yuneec was at 3.79 2.32 and 3.80 (lipo wouldn't charge at all), I was told this was normal. I've been dealing with lipo batteries for a while, this is not acceptable, the rep I spoke with talked to me like I was stupid. I had just received the battery that day and was told they wouldn't replace the battery. I will not fly this drone anymore, Going to buy a DJI.

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
GREAT Drone!!! I believe the other guys just had bad luck with their units. I do NOT regret purchasing this drone verses spending $1500+ on other units. I inspected everything upon delivery and carefully read the instructions. You have to fully charge the 5400mAh 3S 11.1V LiPo and the transmitter battery. Update the firmware on the drone and transmitter and calibrate the drone before attempting to fly! I purchased a Pny 32gb Prime Micro Sd Card for the 4K camera to start off with. I would also suggest purchasing propeller prop guard blade protectors. The stability during flight is amazing as well as the quality during playback. You need (8) NiMH AA batteries for the Steadygrip handheld which is great for personal and professional use. No real complaints for the price. Purchase an extra battery, go out and have fun!

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
I bought this drone in June of 2018. I was only able to fly the drone once, due to the battery and battery charger not working correctly. The battery charger that came with the drone only worked once and has not worked since. I followed up with my local HobbyTown and he told me to contact Yuneec. I contacted Yunnec in mid-June via email, I have a case number, and by phone. I have still not heard back from a representative at Yuneec.

I was sold this drone based on the "great customer service" Yuneec provides over DJI. This is inherently false.

Do not buy this drone, instead, buy a drone from DJI, they have far better customer service and care about their products.

Yuneec USA Q500 4K Typhoon RTF Quadcopter Drone
We are very sorry that any customer is unhappy with the support we provided. We endeavor to provide the highest quality support in the industry. There are many variables that affect batteries. Storage, charging, number of charges, charger used, etc. This is why Yuneec is only able to offer a 30 day replacement if batteries are believed to be defective.
