    All excited here to be getting my Typhoon H tomorrow, downloaded the manual and read it at least 3 times!!! I'll watch some of the YouTube videos and plan to make a simple document for what I need to do for a very simple first flight, yes I'm simple.

    Any advice on a first flight scenario would be greatly appreciated.

    I want and think it necessary to take a step at a time.

    One thing: do not try to update it until later, after you fly it awhile and satisfy yourself that it's working as it should. Members here will gladly help you when problems, questions, arise.

    Many thanks for the advice - seems it's not the thing to do to upgrade the software .......... I assume it's shipped with the old software and I would then download the update when I'm ready?

    My drone arrived yesterday............. still waiting for all the items I ordered to arrive, especially the propeller guards, sure to need them, in the meantime I'm going to have a go setting it up, calibration and make myself a first flight cheat sheet/check everything first sheet from the manual.

    No, planned for Sunday.......got 200 acres to fly in...... currently struggling with set up, need to Bind, get wireless connection, calibrate Drone and Camera. Manual doesn't cover all this. I need to upgrade the software as well.

    It's like buying a new car and having to tune the engine and put in the transmission before you can drive it. Very frustrated, should be all set from new

    From all the Forum and Help I see that loads of people have similar problems. Great drone on paper, just wish it came with a Quick start guide covering set up.

    Sounds like a fantastic area to fly free!

    Sorry to hear you're struggling with the setup... That bites that it doesn't have a start up quick guide.

    I don't have an H - I have a Q500.

    Hope you get it up and flying soon.
