    Correct me if I am wrong, is this the FPV?
    ACES PLUG-N-PLAY FPV SYSTEM FOR THE YUNEEC Q500
    $499.00

    Here is the link: ACES PLUG-N-PLAY FPV SYSTEM FOR THE YUNEEC Q500

    For this, you would really need a good wifi signal for the phone to continuously have video. I tried the iPhone app to have a second FPV but I kept dropping signal. I just recently purchased the
    Yuneec Q500 ULTIMATE Control & FPV Video Extended Range Signal 2 Booster Kit with Battery Pack to enhance my signal. I'll verify the phone signal when I finish installing the kit.

    For the FPV, that is still too expensive.

    WAY too expensive. Hell my Drone cost $599. Why would I spend 499 for an FPV kit ? Might be persuaded to spend $200, but not a penny more.

    You r absolutely correct, way too expensive. After checking out other FPV options, i am building my FPV kit myself. Shark Dominator 3 is not bad at all.

    My ST10+ was bought a month ago, and it's had off and on battery problems. Yuneec wants to look at it. There's obviously something draining the battery while it's not even on. I need to keep the warranty on it, with the issues I've had with it. Is this Shark Dominator something that mounts on or in the ST10+, voiding out the warranty?

    I built my own cost about 80$. A little work with a dremmel and some light soldering was able to fit TX into a gimbal base and mount camera below. Boscam TX -$25.00, Runcam skyplus $34.00,(was silver I painted) Anabee Antenna set $12.00,Gimbal Base $8.00 (Ebay) Modified base so could see screen on TX and access buttons. I have only been out about 500 ft but picture quality is great. I didnt use a LC filter and planned to add if needed but from what i was told pwr. supply on bottom of q500 is filtered. Also only weighs about 78 g

    We talked to a guy from Zeiss who make the VR One Goggle. He says they are working on getting it to work with all YNEEC drones. It is a great option for around $110. It only works with DJI for now. It is a VR goggle that works with your phone and has head tracking, pretty cool. Hopefully they will have it available soon.
