    Maybe Yuneec will listen to us and take on our suggestions

    1) Battery life in percent with user settable warning levels.
    2) The ST-16 should talk when you change flight modes or camera gimbal modes. Start/Stop recording.
    3) Map overlay, could really be useful in a fly away or forced landing.
    4) User selectable color schemes for the LEDs under the motors, could really look nice in the evening and I would love to see some strobe action.
    5) Change the color of the gimbal lock to red/orange, I am sure others may forget to remove it.
    6) More warning information about take offs while in SMART mode.
    7) Better performance may have been gained if the antennas were moved to the landing gear.
    8) More information on Firmware updates, just what does the update address.
    9) Better SD card slot in the ST-16, thing's a bear for me to use.

    Please keep your ideas real and objective

    1. I wish the manual was more complete
    a. describe flashing indicator light better
    b. description of camera controls
    c. better description of camera tilt and panning modes
    2. Wish the indicator light when in Angle mode was a different color. When more than 50' above me it looks red which means something different than purple
    3. I wish the camera had a HDR setting
    4. I wish the user could define the type of pattern for exposure meter
    5. I wish there was an anti-glare screen protector offered for the size of the monitor in the ST16 (I'll trim the one I've ordered)
    6. I wish the ginbal cover had a little different shape over the lens to make room to fit Polar Pro filters
    7. I wish there was a lens shade available
    8. I wish Chris in OZ would get his TH today! :)

    Enjoy your Typhoon H!

    Yes like the 3 position switch that only has 2 functions!
    I forgot about setting the RTH height, I have some big trees around here would not want to fly into one.
    My Sycamore is an easy 70'

    With OA on the return to home probably wouldn't work because it wouldn't be able to get past those tall trees :)

    1) Have the camera set up with a better Auto Adjust feature.
    2) Have a Histogram to be able to see your cameras iso/shutter speed resolution for better videos and photos
    3) Relocate/Redesign and get the Flight Mode and Obstacle Avoidance switches out of the way of easy bumping or accidental switching to the" Twenty Six Foot Circle of Death" Smart Mode
    4)Have Liz do more informative videos on flight and camera options and settings, 'IN A BIKINI"

    All good suggestions, I was looking at more in terms of what could be fixed with FIRMWARE.
    Hopefully Yuneec will take note and fix many of these things on the H2. But then it will be another NEXT WEEK YUNEEC

    I forgot to add
    I would like to see telemetry data overlay on my videos.
    This should be user selectable as to how much data to display. Maybe could use the one button on the to right of the controller that does nothing right now as an off/on toggle

    The problem is, you'd still only have a dji! With all the incumbent issues.
