    How things change

    The drone market is getting hot again. Even with some of the new FAA regs and restrictions, drone pilots are awaking from their Covid19 shutdown and want to get out to do some flying. My H Plus has been in a long sleep and needs to go airborne again. When we have been away from the "sticks" so...

    Yuneec US sales

    This is one of the best advice tips I can provide to you as a new H Plus owner: Never completely drain a Typhoon H Plus battery. Batteries should be stored at 30-50% charge, and never stored at full charge. I ruined several batteries by not storing them half charged. This is unlike DJI product...

    NIGHT flight with Typhoon H plus at Duluth's Aerial lift Bridge with ship

    Nice job and glad you are legal. I have the Plus too and the only complaint I have is the low battery life. After about 20 minutes on a full charge I get nagged to return to home.

    RE: Battery Percentage Levels

    What is the average flight time with your batteries on the H Plus? I seem to only get a solid 20 minutes before I start to get the red 29% warning to go home. Maybe I can get more time if I am not so cautious to return so soon. What are your experiences? I only use the standard H battery for on...

    Venom Produo settings for H Plus

    What is the average flight time with your batteries on the H Plus? I seem to only get a solid 20 minutes before I start to get the red 39% warning to go home. Maybe I can get more time if I am not so cautious to return so soon. What are your experiences?

    Should I go or should I stay?

    If this battery lasts as long as I hope it does, it will give me hope that I can fly further away with my H Plus. I will certainly provide my feedback after a few flights.

    Should I go or should I stay?

    Thanks for the buying tip, Patrick. I just ordered one of the batteries from them. No charge for shipping. If I like the flight time I will get another one.

    Should I go or should I stay?

    Thanks for all the info Patrick. Too bad about the battery life on the H Plus standard batteries. I only have two out of four batteries that I now can trust to fly my H Plus any distance away from the home point. I just checked to see about ordering a couple more and see that they are really...

    Should I go or should I stay?

    I agree that the H Plus is pretty much the best bird of the bunch, but the battery life is terrible. I am waiting for a firmware upgrade, but don't have much hope to see anything coming soon to solve some of the bugs of the last update. I always have to relink my C23 camera on startup which...

    Should I go or should I stay?

    Great job, Patrick! Your videos inspire me to get out more to fly my H Plus. I am still quite unhappy with the battery life even though I follow the don't store fully charged modo. What kind of life are you getting with your H Plus? What batteries are you using?

    Yuneec Pilots Locations Map

    Yes, Tom the location is correct for me in Stuart Florida. I am surprised there are so few Typhoon H flyers in Florida. I see we now have the opportunity to try out the beta version of the UAV toolbox. Thanks for setting up the map locations for us on the forum.

    SD Card Slot in Controller Problem

    I happened to insert my micro SD card in the ST16S and it missed the proper slot opening. It fell into the controller and was rattling around, so I decided to open up the back. It is kind of tricky getting the rubber grips in the small grommet holes, but with some persuasion I got it all back...
