    H batteries.

    Got my H battery from YuneecSkins on Monday, charged it up because I thought I might get to fly the next morning, but between weather and work haven't had a chance to fly, so put it back in storage charge (took 3.5 hrs from full, guess I never did that before). I'll let you know as soon as I get...

    I assume the bags aren't necessary for ground shipping, I'm just 470 miles south of you.

    My H is now grounded due to all batteries puffed, plus IR values around 20, less than 5 minutes for most. Best I can get is about 8 minutes out of one of them, so it stays low and nearby. Will definitely buy a couple as soon as you have them! Appreciate all you do for us.

    USA - Bad drone legislation in the US

    Agree that the big problem is that most will not fly with a spotter (or even know they are supposed to, don't know what the instruction manual says). I did see a review that showed one of the features was the pause button, which nearly instantly stops the drone, appeared to work very well and...

    Pitch and Putt

    Nicely done. Not sure if it would be allowed, but if there are no people around, a shot taking off from a tee and flying like a ball would be cool.

    "Puffed" batteries - disposal source

    Thanks, there is one near me in California, and I have batteries to dispose of. I'll check it out, California tends to have rules different than the rest of the country........ :-(

    Has anyone found a way to "repair" Typhoon H arms?

    Based on the post above yours, you should be able to remove the two ends. And I know I've seen other posts that carbon fiber tubes are available. This one I think: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=SHINA+3K+Roll+Wrapped+10mm+Carbon+Fiber+Tube&ref=nb_sb_noss

    Battery for H480

    Use the spyglass icon in the upper right to search for H480 batteries. Many threads on the subject. Here's one solution: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yuneec-Typhoon-H-Battery-Conversion-Adapter-LiPo-LiHV-6-8000mah-XT90-Upgrade-Kit/264219274239?hash=item3d84b22bff:g:O~AAAOSwoSNceNq8

    Time lapse issue

    So true. I was a field service engineer for many years working on small main frames and peripheral devices, and then PC's when they first came out. Can't tell you how many problems I fixed just by reseating boards.

    Time lapse issue

    Note that you can test the landing legs out of the aircraft on the bench. Easy to remove, then with a 9v battery you can cycle them. 3 contacts, one is common, the other two make the motor run in each direction. I know there is video somewhere, but can't seem to find it right now. (EDiT: See...
