    Firmware Update - Typhoon H fly off crash

    Ran my first and only firmware update on my new typhoon h this week to take advantage of the new features. Read this forum to see if there were issues, didn't find anything alarming. Applied the update per instructions. Did it twice in fact to ensure I had not missed a step. Waited 2 days to...

    Advice after my first crash and repair - chapter 1

    I got tangled in a branch and wound up with a few broken parts. I ordered all the parts and found that I mistakenly ordered a "A" arm instead of a "B" arm. Since I ordered only the arm and not the accompanying motor, I thought it would be fine to remove the "B" motor from the broken arm and...

    Q500 4K maiden voyage... Propeller just flew off mid flight.

    Hi all, maybe someone can help me understand what might have gone wrong. I ordered my Q500 4K from amazon. It arrived yesterday and today I went to fly it for the first time. I have experience with mini-drones, so I do have a little bit of a feel for how to fly a quadcopter. However, this was...

    Unstable Flight Indoors

    Just got the Breeze, having some issues. This is my third quad in 9 months, so I'm a beginner, but not a newbie. When I fly in doors it tends to wander, needs constant correction. The wandering is very inconsistent in speed. Some times it will just drift, others times start to fly off at walking...

    Excellent Yuneec Customer Service

    I have a Phantom 4 and a Typhoon H Pro. I love both. I have received superb customer service from Yuneec. Way beyond my expectations. I do not like the fact that the H climbs to 10 meters when you switch out of Angle mode. I usually fly at low altitudes. This resulted in my H climbing into an...

Basically i think its gone and fried. So im thinking is there any way i could by the drone off anyone (just the drone) or is there...

    Super Bummed - Q500 Took Off and Crashed

    Was enjoying a normal day of flying when climbing straight up, at about 60 ft over my head in angle mode, it took off sideways at full throttle. My first reaction was to let go of my altitude stick, (wasn't touching the right stick). No change. Next was full opposite direction on right stick...

    Another one falls from sky - *UPDATE-Fixed by Yuneec USA-

    Was flying over a river bout 100 feet up maybe 200 away on a full battery. All of a sudden it just drops from the sky. No control at all. Luckily it fell on the river bank about 2 feet from swift water. Camera completely destroyed along with SD card. How much luck has anybody that has had this...

    Propeller stuck on Typhoon H after crash

    So yeah, probably like every one I didn't think that I'll be the one to crash my drone, but it happened. Thankfully it wasn't as seriuous as it looked, 3 broken propellers and mountset for CGO3+. I flew it already after crash and everything seems to work... I have just one problem. My propeller...

    First crash with my H :(

    I just want to report that even after losing two props (I got to close to a chimney) my H still flew and I was able to deploy the landing gear and bring it down. Sadly I could not steer it so I ended up landing on a small hedge and it rolled down a bank and hit a fence. Some minor damage, but it...

    Degree of Accuracy to H's Object Detection

    As I've crashed once already, but out of carelessness and not from ramming into something. Though the detection mode was off, so maybe it could have been prevented. Anyway... I'm new to the UV crash detection, so it is it far enough out (or adjustable) so that it will read directly off the...

    Total power loss and crash - Total loss of Typhoon H

    This morning, my Typhoon H lost total power about 2 minutes into its flight, in an arc across the outside of a hill. It was at 40 meters high on a clear day. It had a fully changed battery that was firmly secured with the latch down and locked. It simply lost total power are dropped straight...

    Landing Malfunction? CRASH!

    Flying today, conditions were good. Light breeze but nothing I haven't flown in before. Still a relative newbie but I'm not doing anything too crazy. Few obstacles, clear day, lots of satellites etc. I experienced something similar on my last flight about 2 weeks ago. Usually, as soon as my...

    Falls from the sky

    I have owned my Q500 4k since November of 2015. It has unexpectedly fallen to the ground about six times between then and now. The first five times it was low and no damage was caused. However, last week it fell from about the height of my house and the gimbal mount broke along with one...

    Typhoon H is not waterproof...

    Flying my Typhoon H today- (replacement sent by Yuneec as the first one had an issue right out of the box). I am flying over a river 75 feet up, 300 feet away- getting amazing footage. Lots of action on the river, boats/kayaks/tubes etc... I have been flying for 8 minutes... on a full charge...

    Crashed first time out!

    Hello everyone! i'm new to the forum and new to drone flying. I'm posting here in the hope that my story is not a unique one. The short version of my story is that my new Typhoon H crash landed itself my very first time using it. I don't know what happened, and that's where I'm hoping...

    Typhoon, Camera Diagnostic

    I'm new... Is there a way to do a diagnostic on the camera? I've found this thing does not land like a helicopter. In fact, it doesn't really like landing at all... I was doing ok but then tried to land on a picnic table not thinking. It rolled off the table. I broke a few of those gimbal...

    07/30 Update - Received the drone back from Yuneec 2 days ago and the problem still exists! According to the inspection report the GPS module was replaced. I conducted 3 successful accelerometer calibrations followed by seemingly successful compass calibrations and the toilet bowl continues to...

    Q500 Minor Crash - CGO3 Problem (PLEASE HELP!)

    I had a minor crash yesterday. Nothing broke except a prop. The gimble wires also became detached. I didn't think anything of it and merely plugged in the cord from the bird to the gimble that came with it when purchased. Everything fired up fine. The CGO3 calibrated perfectly. I took it back...
