    Anyone got or found a maintenance schedule for the Typhoon H? As we know the 'manual' contains sparse information to say the least. Last one I have seen is version 1.3

    I am putting together an Ops manual and service & maintenance schedules need to be in.

    Manual 1.3 is a no no as far as I remember. Full of naff things. Yuneec still stand by 1.1.
    I have based maintenance of motors etc as 200 hours,the number used for most applications. Hopefully they are not cheaper and nastier than others out there. Solo reputably had T motors.
    Yuneec UK have an info sheet that is much better than the other stuff knocking around.

    Interesting about the 1.1 verses 1.3 manual. I guess as as Yuneec have 1.1 still instead of 1.3 thats what we should use. There was originally a link on one of the forum threads for the 1.3 manual.

    Still an 'official' idea of service schedule from Yuneec and maintenence checklist would be useful.

    Use what Yuneec provides for reference and build the rest based on your previous experience, 200 hours for the motors might be a little optimistic without some history from something else to extrapolate from.

    This made me laugh!

    In reality I think most people sell them before they require maintenance or retire them as a new version is released.

    So maintenance is actually replacement at 200 hours? Wish they would have made it easier to swap out a motor :)

    At least with 5 motor redundancy we will probably safely know about it when the time comes.

    I never really though about it before, I used to have a phantom, that was constant maintenance and constant worries in the air.
    What I do with the H is which is - I suppose you could consider maintenance, is just to give it a quick once over before each flight. I take a quick look at the blades see that they are not chipped or bent and that they are attached to the hubs correctly, every now and again I look at the screws and see that they are not loose, - they never have been, and I check that the arms click into position each time.
    Really it's a sound machine, I expect with boxing it correctly for transport after each use it's going to last years.

    Check the rivets that hold the motor pod on. Maybe even add some packing tape to secure them. One of my motors came loose in flight, crashing the drone.

    Yes it works. I lost a prop by clipping a tree and the H flew on 5 motors, fully controllable with just a bit of vibration.

    The problem is that the motor is still connected and running but at an varying angle that overcomes the control mechanisms. In my video you can momentarily see the propeller as the motor pod twists itself off the arm. If the motor had just shut down the H could fly on the other 5.
