    OK, I'm done. Great bird WHEN IT WORKS!
    Far to many issues since unboxing. You perhaps read some of them
    Yesterday spoke with YUNEEC. Did a firmware update. Told by the tech "all will be good". Flew this morning and STILL NO CAMERA CAPTUE indication
    DONE! Throughing it into the UPS truck. DONE

    Have you gone into the channel system? Worked for me.

    Wow,bummer I guess I lucked out with mine,so far it has been a dream in the air,It was in my in opinion much simpler than my two other Yuneecs,it paired right up,Cmpass was a breeze.I hate hearing about these issues and I'm sorry for those who have had issues.

    I guess I got lucky too. Not one single issue. And several people I know as well. It's such a good machine you should just send it back, get a new one, then enjoy. Don't be a quitter.

    Mines still very smooth,no way I'm doing a firmware update.As long as it performs spot on why do it? Seems people are having trouble after the update,when you unbox it fly it! You Don't have to update.

    I bought two "H" models. The first one had the issue with the camera conformation and the SD slot in the ST16. Thought it over and indeed buy another - same ISSUE - NO pIcture conformation in Esther still or video! DONE, Done, done
    Maybe..... Maybe I revisit in a year. Don't know. Far to many units with issues.

    I own a G since April 26 and never had a single issue with it! Running with gopro hero 4 black.
    The only thing annoying is not showing any image when you are doing time lapse video on the gopro. Could at least capture frames from time to time.

    Hi would you happen to have RAW footage samples? My footage looks like crap and would like to compare.

    Its basically gopro4 black footage! The gimball works great

    All my footage is captured at max res: 4K@30fps

    Here's some examples:
    Second flight edit with some parts At 4x speed and still steady


    Raw from my first flight

    Thanks for your reply! Do you do a lot of sharpening in post for the RAW footage? Here is a link to my RAW footage, tell me if this is what yours looks like right out of camera without any sharpening or color work.

    Hey Karl Johnson...
    You mention no "still" confirmation from the camera.... What sort of thing were you expecting? Brass Band playing & a popup "Your picture has been added to your library!"?
    All I get is the sound of a camera shutter.... (Is your volume turned up?)
    The SD card issue's been known for ages... Just insert it while holding the ST16 upside down, then it'll fall back out if you put it in at an angle.
    As far as video, I just get a small red dot showing its recording.
    It's a shame you've not persevered... You'll always read of the ones with slight problems on here.... Vast majority- me included- are totally in awe of the craft.
    Good luck with whatever you try next

    I just bought one and also have a Hero 4 Black. Tried learning to fly it in the driveway, crashed immediately into a crepe myrtle. Need to find a wider open space in which to learn piloting.

    My Typhoon G has been great since I bought it. A couple of video freezes, but that was due to WiFi and other interference.

    Nice video, to bad for the fish eye effect. You should consider a lens change out. Something like this works perfect in the GoPro.
    Should be back in stock soon.

    I do everything in a fast and half-assed manner... including reading.
