    Just received my H and it looks like they must have replaced it instead of repairing it. They put on my serial number but with a new label maker label over top the original serial number. I do believe its a replacement unit as there were a lot of scratches and marks on the bottom on the H even under the motors. They are all gone and it actually looks new. I am very happy about that.

    Yuneec really backs up their product. :)

    Yes brand new camera. Went out and flew her last night before it got dark - camera is fine - not perfect but fine and will do its job for now. I will need to play around with the settings on the camera as all I used was auto.

    I thought since the UAV's have to be registered you now have to have a set of numbers on it someplace? If thats the case did they replace your registration numbers?

    No they didnt change my registration numbers as thats with the FAA. I did have a sticker on the bottom of the H with my FAA registration numbers but that's gone and not on the H any longer. I will need to make a new FAA sticker with my label maker and have it put back onto the H as its missing. No all they did was take a label maker sticker and created my serial number based on my old existing serial number from the old drone and stick it onto the existing serial number of this new drone as my serial number for the drone. I was hoping they would put my serial number from my old drone onto this drone with the real factor sticker (but it was washed away from being a submarine due to the issue of fly away) but they used a label maker sticker instead of using a factory sticker.

    Really dont want to show this video but here is a video of my drone flying away on me a month ago - its sorta disturbing. I couldn't pull it back or stop it in place for the life of me...I tried but it wouldn't stop - it had like a mind of its own. Someone was standing there videotaping it as I lifted it up.

    It shows that the video is private ... make it public!

    Out of curiosity, what was the turn around time to get yours back? They've had mine for a month now and still no word.
