    Very short flight time with new batteries

    I purchaced my Q500 4K before the summer holidays. I've played around with it and gave it some really quick test flights in my backyard. After gaining confidence with the simulator i decided to do my first real flight in an open area a week ago. Sadly both stock batteries died after just 5...

    Battery after Battery failure

    Ok, are the Typhoon Q500 batteries poorly made? Seems the first time charge all good. Subsequent charges would not take. Bought two more and a different charger. Same pattern. Cb my fault. Do I have to stand there and take off immediately after the charge? Like my camera Lithium camera batteries...

    High altitude and battery life

    Has anyone noticed that the batteries drain faster at high altitude? It make sense because of the thinner air, the motors must work harder. I was flying yesterday at about 6300 ft elevation. TH still flew fine but not as long.

    Slightly Swollen H Battery

    I took a flight yesterday and when I was done I pulled the battery and noticed that it was a bit swollen. I let it rest and the swelling went down a bit. I'm going to dispose of it. Any best practices? it still has a bit of a charge. I don't have a means apart from use to discharge the battery...

    Battery Charging settings for Q500 4k

    Hi all. I've tried searching here and on Google but the results are seriously mind boggling to try to digest. Maybe if I just lay out clear questions, I can get a direct answer and my old brain can avoid losing what few cells (no pun intended) it has left. :) 1. I have the stock charger, but I...

    GiFi 8050mAh H480 Battery...

    Looks like they're available on eBay only from Hong Kong for $106. Anyone had an opportunity to try one yet? I purchased one yesterday and am very curious to see how they perform. I'm not convinced about GiFi cell quality or where they're actually sourcing cells that generate 2012.5mAh (give...

    After making some home repairs, my video sometimes contain wavy lines (jello effect). I've been able to resolve 95% of the affect after adjusting my dampeners, balancing props, and re-securing internal wires, etc. but I still experience jello on occasion. The other day, I noticed that videos...

    Unsure when to charge // voltage fluctuating

    Hey gang, I'm out flying again for the first time in a while. Stock battery, full charge. I fell like it drained awfully quick... I was down to 14.7 in a matter of like 2 minutes. Probably 50-80ft up there, no crazy wind. I did tinker around like 10 minutes on the pad with some camera settings...

    Video - Do each of your batteries have the same # of charges?

    Your Typhoon battery is only rated for a certain number of charges before it no longer performs well. You'll know it's nearing the end of it's life cycle when your flight time gets shorter and shorter. If you have more than one battery, then it is best to ensure that each battery gets an equal...

    Just got my Q500 back with problems

    You may recall I bricked my Q500 4k when the firmware update stopped in the middle. I sent it into Yuneec, California, and about a month later, I received it back. When I start up the Q500, I get a blinking blue light. Ive tried several charged batteries, but get the same light. The ST10 also...
