    H 520 organge due to birds of prey?

    I had a red tailed hawk as a pet before, he would dive bomb anything from above if it looks appetizing lol. Now I have a cockatoo who would scream bloody murder when his nails are trimmed. They do bleed when done incorrectly and with birds, blood loss is a major thing because of their size.

    H 520 organge due to birds of prey?

    I could see these trained raptors get "retired" soon after one encounter with a drone. The spinning props can obliterate their legs. I was watching the news where raptors are trained to intercept drones. I thought to myself, it is so inhumane.

    H Plus unboxing....

    The official lanyard was finally included in the package. How generous!

    Southern California Typhoon H Flyers

    It would be great to generate a list of legitimate fly areas where we can grow the hobby and have UAV pilots be welcomed. Many areas are listed as UAV friendly but staff have the area unfriendly due to biases.

    Southern California Typhoon H Flyers

    I would certainly be interested in that. There are more open spaced to fly around SD/Temecula area compared to LA and OC.

    Southern California Typhoon H Flyers

    I am in Temecula on the weekends. I would welcome a drone club, I have a Yuneec TH with RS, Mavic Pro and Air.

    H520 dropped out the sky from 100ft without warning!

    I am glad that Yuneec acknowledged the equipment malfunction and got you a new set of equipment to replace the faulty one. Equipment failure is part of the industry and something to be incorporated in your contingency plan. Companies have extensive FMEAs for their main equipment since...

    Another Use for the Red Button... Landing!

    I will be scared to try this. It is a kill switch after all. The left stick descend is fine with me.

    ST16 Lanyard

    I got a 2nd ST16 to run Team Mode. The 2nd controller flies the drone while the primary st16 controls the camera. I thought about 2 THs but I opted for a Mavic Air and the Pro to switch them around.

    Calibrations for the Typhoon H

    Wouldn't removing the camera everytime you fly the drone be stressful to the connections/mount? I calibrate before I fly since I usually fly over new areas in excess of 50+ away from main base (home).

    ST16 Lanyard

    I bought the Yuneeq brand lanyard for my two ST16s. It's very convenient when you have to do something with your hands than hold on to the massive controller (like to direct people or hand catch your Typhoon). I would go for the Copperdawg (I love carbon fiber!) but the price to outfit 2 ST16...

    H520 dropped out the sky from 100ft without warning!

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your drone. Keep us posted on the root cause, we would like to know what the reason was for the crash. If you were not that far, I would offer to buy the props and controller battery.

    ST16 SD card

    No. If you don’t have a memory card on the ST16, you will need to turn on your Typhoon H to playback your recorded pics and videos.
