    Hi all,

    I just bought a Q500+ and I have a few questions regarding spare parts such as props, landing gear, etc.

    Where do you guys buy them?
    Are they original or aftermarket?
    Cases, i need one but cant see myself spending $250.00 on one

    Do you guys have any suggestions as far as starting to fly
    I have flown toy grade quads for 2 months and got a little bored with them.

    Thanks in advance

    Try Carolina Dronz. The owner is Frank Farray and he is a great guy who goes way out of his way to give outstanding customer support. I have never heard of someone not being happy with something they bought from him.
    Also Peter at Aces deals is also awesome. If you call either of these businesses those guys will pick up the phone and you will know you made the right move.

    I am going with a rolling tool case from Home Depot. Just big enough for handling the typhoon with props on and the rest of the extras needed with weather resistant seal for $50 and I think they will do delivery too.
    Good luck. I am waiting for the simulator to show as the weather here in MN is just ugly cold and windy for a typical February

    No, has the standard tool tray. 49.97 plus tax to your door. Have seen where they can drop in the foam shipping block the typhoon comes with. I was lucky and got the gray foam with mine.

    Home Depot
    as for the case. I bought mine from Home Depot... there are videos online explaining that one... it's a nice case... wheels, handle, and all... plus the foam of the Q fits perfect in side of it... plus room for extras... around the $50 range...

    I noticed that B&H has case foam for the yuneec for very reasonable. If the sites prices are correct, could be on your doorstep for around $10

    Punch in "yuneec q500 case" at youtube. Many options. Drones in SC and High Flyer have used the Home Depot case in their video. My HD case is supposed to be delivered tomorrow and the weather may cooperate by end of the week.

    When you fly it in the "Smart" mode, it's always in either Follow or Watch me mode. You'll want to learn to fly in "Angle or Pilot" mode (center position) on switch. I started just like you did, and even asked the same question. Flying in "Pilot" mode is easier once you get a few flights under your belt. Hope that helps

    just turned the anti virus off for the installation and then turn back on and seemed ok. Others have had the same issue. Good luck
