    Hey everyone, hope you're enjoying your new H! Just got mine on friday, flown it four times since. On the first three flights, the retractable landing gear worked perfectly fine, but on the fourth flight, for no conceivable reason, the port-side gear stays down even thought the starboard-side rises as normal. I figure this has got to be an electrical/mechanical defect, as clearly the input from my ST16 is making it to the H, but only one side is working. Has anyone else experienced this, and have you been able to resolve it? I plan to contact customer service on Monday, but in the mean time I would love to hear thoughts on how to troubleshoot this. Thanks!

    Neither one of mine would retract when I first flew, so before I even thought of sending back to Yuneec, I did a mild bump landing to knock some sense into the "b*t*h, and she has worked fine ever since.

    I think I will go with the bump if I encounter that this week.Hate the thought of sending her in.

    Bwhaha! This happened to me also. I was about to land and for some reason my landing legs did not want to come down so what I did next was I got the Typhoon H real close to me and I let hover then I grabbed it with my bare hands! It was fighting me a little bit then it started making alarms and it went to 5 motor mode. From there I shut it down. Then I went inside the house and found out that my wife was trying to wireless connect her GoPro app from her phone to cast to our TV at the same time I was landing. So, it hit me... it was interfering with the Typhoon H. After, I went outside and tried flying it again and the landing legs responded well. Ever since then I never had the same issue anymore. I even called Yuneec support the next day and told her the story...she was so shocked!

    That sucks. My Typhoon H has a defective battery or charging dock so I'm unable to fly right out the box. Second my camera stopped working all together I've lost all video connection even though it still pans and rotates, but I can't establish a connection.

    If you turn the H upside down, then ue the retract switch, the legs will work, but it has to be upside down..flick the switch to go down then give them so help and see what happens , there was a video on youtube showing them working if upside down to check them.

    There is so much noise out there nowadays.. Its RF soup!.. I'm surprised as these aircraft do as much as they can now with all the interference out there!

    Hi, I just received my Typhoon and am checking everything for functionality. My LG also do NOT work unless I turn it upside down?? As soon as I put it upright they no longer work....is this normal? Will they work as they should once airborn? Anyone know why is this so? Thanks

    Yes this is normal and the only way to check LG operation. Once you fly it all will be good.

    Good stuff.....I guess certain conditions must exist in order for the gear to work? Thanks for your help Michael.

    Excellent, thank you sir. I guess it's to prevent accidentally retracting them while on the ground and possibly damaging the cam. IMHO, Yuneec should mention that in the manual.
