    i live outside Denver ,Co and love the Colorado Rocky Mountains. There are many towns above the 8000 ft limit the Yuneec Q500+ has restricted. The Blade Chroma has no altitude limit and is much smaller. Do you know a way to remove the altitude limit? Please help me remove this restriction. The mountains of Colorado are calling me.

    Call Yuneec tech support. They will send you a firmware update that will bypass the 8000' ceiling. And will provide a link to Aeronaut propellors where you can purchase some 13" carbon fiber props that will work on your Q500+

    I've been eyeing those props. Just curious about crashing. Since they're stronger than stock, and don't easily break, will something else get damaged in a crash? The energy has to go somewhere.

    They are quieter and provide a little more thrust.
    CAM-C.Light-s 13x5"
    aero-naut 7220/01 is clockwise rotation and 7220/02 is counter clockwise rotation.
    Web site is www.aero-naut.de
    M8 hubs very well made.
    They are very strong.
    Have not crashed with them yet.
    But I prefer them to stock.
    There does not seem to be a motor temp difference with no hub fan in propellor.
    Of 8 recently purchased seven needed no balancing and one took a bit of sanding on one end.
     
    Centrey and Fleamac like this.

    Hi,

    I live in Bogota at 8380 ft and I cannot use the yuneec. Very frustrating. Can this be fixed? What do I need to do?

    thanks

    We have a firmware that allows the motors to engage above 8,000'. Please email me at tterrones@yuneecusa.com

    Hello Tim, I also sent an email to request the firmware modified to fly above 8000 feet. They are already in possession of the propellers 13 "x 5 and I do photo at a height of 9000 feet :(
    Thank you
