    Typhoon Q500 4k with ALL accessories and 2nd battery, NO CAMERA or GIMBAL. OG box and foam, steady grip never used. $400 obo. + shipping. Con US only

    Great for a backup airframe, parts, or run a second camera. I've had the quad for about 10 days, has roughly 15 flights at 15 mins per flight.

    Love this unit, but came in too hot and got tangled up in a bush by the river. Needless to say the gimbal/camera popped off and rolled down the bank into the soup. I replaced 2 propellers and was up and running again, no problems, well, besides the ruined camera.

    Cutting my losses and might move to a unit that supports waypoints.

    I have had the camera pop out of a couple of supports and forlornly dangle there.

    I landed using rth and thoughtlessly stepped to close before it switched off ... duh ... it tried to get away from me and flipped.

    Broke a prop and almost dropped the CGO3

    Am utilizing a suggestion I saw in another post.

    Slip a couple of zip-ties loosely through the rubber dampers suspending the camera.

    If one or more of the dampers lose it the zip-ties save the day.

    Great idea, thanks! I still have my q500, camera came back from service better than ever and was a free repair.
