    Purpose of a Drone - Photography

    I'm going to echo bb1040. At 74, my hands aren't like they used to be, just got used to heli with stabilization, and hands went to wiggle mode, Sure is neat to watch, but **** on airframe. I need the added stability of the yuneec products to take pictures. Had 5004k and sold it to get typhoon...

    Compass calibration thoughts

    I have just competed my latest upgrade, even though all was working well, no gps errors or such. Now trying to calibrate compass, I get an immediate gps error on the st16. I had no error condition prior to the upgrade, and repeated the upgrade twice with no problem. I moved the st16 about 20...

    Photoflying under bridges

    I developed for a customer, a y6 that had a camera that could be rotated + or - 90 degrees from horizontal. The camera also extended from the front of the aircraft to have clear up and down vision. These are custom made drones, not something you can find at your friendly best buy!. These flew...

    for sale: CGO3+ camera and gimbal for typhoon H

    I put the peau 8.25 FL on. I like the peau "zoom" effect , so i decided to release the older 3.97 of the original lens. It is in perfect focus and the apparent 2x zoom is evident. Now i can fly higher to get normal ratio, but can get lower for closeups. I bought the second camera to have...

    CGO3+ Stock Camera Mod

    I have the peau 8.25 lens, and installed it myself. You just have to be careful when removing (epoxy?) holding the non thread yuneec mount. If you scrape with exacto and remove two screws , you can then mount the new (required 12mm mount). I had difficulty focusing, and with help from peau...

    Ultrax 6300mAh 14.8v 4S replacement lipo battery for Yuneec Typhoon H drone RC Quadcopter

    without camera, the 6600 lihv (hk) was working at 19 minutes with 15.0 volts! when the extreme toilet bowl went to ground. **** magnetic roof! Just need to add terminals to 8000 and test with camera of course. I'll see how it goes.
