    Hand catch disadvantage?

    In my situation I had to make a decision: hand catch it or land on the camera. For some reason both gear failed to deploy when commanded. I elected to hand catch it and probably saved a costly repair to the camera. It was a little sketchy because I caught it with both hands around the center...

    How to Change Left Trim Function

    Hello, Does anyone know how to change the left trim function and use it for throttle and yaw instead of camera settings? I want to do a slow steady rate rotating climb to simulate the Sky Tower at Sea World and manually holding the left stick up in one position proves difficult to achieve the...

    Flight Logs

    So, no, it doesn't have the latest firmware. I received the Typhoon H at Christmas time and updated to the b27 version just a few days before b30 came out. The gear issue arose using the b27 ST16 firmware and associated H Gimbal, Autopilot, and Camera Firmware. Sorry I can't give you the...

    Team Mode with a Futaba Controller

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to bind a Futaba controller to the Camera and Gimbal to use in Team Mode. I don't have a Wizard and don't think I really like the idea of controlling the H with such a device. I also don't want to buy another ST16 just to use in Team Mode. That is why...

    Low Battery Warning and Erratic Flight

    The Typhoon H manual says to land the craft immediately if at any time the aircraft battery voltage is below 14.1V. I have flown mine down to this limit and the second battery warning with no control issues.

    Typhoon H Required Maintenance ....

    I've noted a very small bit of play in all 3 "A" propellers when they are mounted on the motors, but none in the "B" propellers. All the props have 14 flights on them with total flight time of about 4.5 hours.

    Flight Logs

    I am not at home to check it at the moment, but it has the firmware associated with the b27 release for the ST16. I think it may have been the second flight after updating to the b27 firmware. What makes me believe this was not a mechanical issue was that both gear would not come down and then...

    Flight Logs

    I tested the landing gear subsequent to the flight using the upside down method several times and the gear worked properly. I also turned the Typhoon H right side up after retracting and attempted to lower the gear. Each time the gear operated as expected when the switch was toggled. When I...

    Flight Logs

    A few days ago I was finishing a flight and went to deploy the landing gear but nothing happened. I ended up having to hand capture the Typhoon H and when I went to idle the gear started to deploy. I downloaded the flight logs for the controller and telemetry data to review it. I can see on...

    Pilot license and Drone Registration

    The problem with this is, if the drone is operated under section 336 of Public Law 112-95 The US Congress specifically stated that the FAA could not make any new law regarding a drone, and that is exactly what the FAA did in requiring a drone to be registered. We are a government of the people...

    ST16 Channel Assigments

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows the channel assignments on the ST16 so when reviewing the Remote Flight Log I can determine what function of the ground station is being used when I see changes on that channel. I am pretty sure I have figured out that Channel 10 is for the Landing Gear...

    Always carry a padded bucket for the H

    I had the same issue happen to me yesterday. Everything was normal with the flight, other than it being the 13th flight since I've had the Typhoon H (TH), and when I was preparing to land neither landing gear came down when the landing gear switch was moved to the down position. I hovered in...
