    I actually answered my own question! After i thought about it i was trying to recall what was different this time i flew, then i remembered i changed the video capture rate. I found this PDF in the forum that perfectly explained why i didn't get any picture capture..http://yuneecpilots.com/attachments/video-mode-sheet-pdf.119/ I had changed my video capture to 1920x1080 60fps - since i was just shooting for practice. Otherwise it would have never occurred to me that changing the capture for video would prevent me from taking pictures.

    Yes I did the same thing .If you are in pro mode you have to stop video and tap the camera icon on the screen so you can use camera mode then when you want video mode you have to tap the video icon on screen to video again.You can do this in flight.

    I know this is old post but still hope someone replies. My video recording works all the way they. No skip in the video when I view it. I still lose my camera signal every 5 to 10 min. I am also by airport. I don't think this affects that. Anyway for any tips?

    have you tried to rebind the camera or do you know some one that has and will let you try their camera on your Q , that will tell you if it's the camera is loosing connection from camera . have you checked the SD card in the ST-10 ( LOW RES FILES ) dose the camera still record to the ST-10 low res files ?

    Your location to the airport could very well be your trouble. I have come to the conclusion that any wifi or maybe other type transmissions can interfere with the 5.8 signal between the ST10 and Cgo3 camera. I live in East Texas. It's in the oilfield and wells are everywhere. Most all these wells, pipelines, compressor stations and other equipment communicate by either wifi or some other type signal. I have had an ongoing problem losing camera connection. I added an Itelite antenna to my ST10 and external antenna to my Cgo3. My problem, if not eliminated is 99% improved.

    I've had issues with the camera disconnecting but I chalked that up to interference from the metal barn and shop in my yard being in the line of sight. Having said that - I have a new camera (crashed and burned the other one) but haven't taken much video and photos yet as I just got it yesterday. I will be testing it out tomorrow when ice fishing :)

    Why is it that DJI Phantom drones get a lot of attention from the television networks and other brands do not?

    I guess their marketing and promotion people are just better or at least more active. I'm not convinced that DJI is that much better than other brands. I don't claim my Yuneec is the best. In fact if I were buying the same class/type quad today I can't say I buy Yuneec again. But I don't think I'd buy DJI just because of their exposure.

    DJI is simply the more popular brand. I'll bet 3 to 1 at the very least and probably more like 4 to 1.
    All my drone buddies fly DJI. I'm the only one in our group with a Yuneec.
    I like Yuneec because it's not the same drone as everyone else and I didn't like the idea of having to purchase an Ipad to view my flights with the DJI.
    This is my 2nd Q and it's okay. My next will be another brand.
