    purple 'angle' indicator, intermittent GPS and does not want to land!

    Hello all, I am in need of the font of all knowledge on this forum. My Typhoon H (RS) is around 16 months old, apart from my finger and switch troubles as a newbie and sweating a bit of blood getting software updates to take it has always been perfect in every way. So, it has been in storage...

    GPS calibration says 'lower than 20% power" although drone is 95% charged?

    Having huge issues here, stressing me out! I can't even get the drone off the ground because i can't calibrate it. it's fully charged, but i click 'start' on the calibration page and it won't do it because less than 20% power which doesn't make any sense. what am i doing wrong here?

    Shell decorating and GPS reception

    Hi All, Question for any GPS knowledgable individuals. Many people decorate their H body-shell, my question is would a metalilc spray paint affect GPS reception? The paint I am considering is gold chrome in colour but does not contain any conductive material (I test sprayed an area and did an...

    Twitchy GPS Track

    Has anyone else noticed their telemetry GPS tracks being super-twitchy? The H is flying really well and smooth, but the tracks are really rough. Below is a section of a flight I did yesterday, and if you look at the total distance of the GPS log it's a quarter mile, but in reality it's just a...

    Changes to H GPS ready indicator on ST-16

    Before the latest update (2017) my ST-16 used to give the number of GPS satellites aquired by the H on the ST-16 display. Now it just says 'READY' in green. Has anyone else got this? Is it normal? Is it safe to fly?

    Bouncing up after landing

    Hi All, Ok I have a wee problem as of the past two flights. My H has been perfect since its maiden flight last Oct 2016. It is the pro RS version. Lat two flights when I have landed (perfectly as usual) I have let go of the throttle to move my left index finger to the red button to kill the...

    GPS Tracking if the Typhoon fails and gets lost?

    I am new to Yuneec as I was flying a DJI Phantom before. Just got my Typhoon H yesterday and have not flown it yet. DJI has the capability of finding the UAV should it fail and fall from the sky etc. Does Yuneec also have this capability or should I purchase a separate GPS tracking device ?

Fired up the Breeze took off, flew down to the creek deep below, go my video, went to hit the return to home hoping for a successful fight and cant find the "Return to Home" button. I am new and lessons are learned every time out. I...

    GPS - not always the same?

    Hi Everyone and Merry X-mas! I hope to find a GPS expert here as I have question. Today I was flying exactly at the same spot but this time I got about 5-6 satellites less (only 12-14 instead 18-20) on the ST16 and also the Typhoon showed about 4 less. How can this be? Shouldn't I see the...

    No GPS Lock on Typhoon H

    Good evening everyone, Just bought a brand new Typhoon H, but the GPS won´t lock, and because of that I can´t fly with all the resources. Only if I turn the GPS off the engines will start. And for me that is not a good idea. I am a first time flyer, and have no experience what so ever. Don´t...

    QUESTION: Does firmware update 1.7 prevent flight?

    I am flying a Q500+ s10. My Typhoon is at Firmware 1.1 and it flies even though I'm in a "no fly zone" and my house is three blocks from a small airstrip. My question is if I update to the 1.7 firmware, will my ability to fly around my house be nixed? Or, if I upgrade firmware is there a way to...

    Autopilot software (GPS) Q500, Q5004K

    Autopilot software. Like many of you I was hoping that Yuneec would have considered releasing a download for the Q500 enabling it to have the capability to use GPS and fly with autopilot. I would like to know if a program was designed giving the Q500 this ability would other Typhoon owners be...

    My wonderful "H"enry broke a leg and won't lift. Also seems to lose GPS and has a disturbing/scary twitchy hovering. Anyone have similar trouble? Thanks, Susan Karl
