    Gps sensor error.

    Hi I own a Q500 4K and I accidentaly unpluged my Gps senzor. I tried to plug it back in and I took it apart to do that. As I was puting it back together I did not pay enough attention to the wires and I put a screw right through them. I got Gps senzor error so I tried to solder the wires. It...

    Questions about Typhoon Q500 4K updates

    Hello, all! I'm a new US member with a Q500 4K that's a few years old and I want to prepare it to fly again. The firmware shown for the aircraft in settings is 1.07. However, I've downloaded a file from Yuneec Skins with the filename of Q500_v1.07_09_28_2015.bin. It's unclear to me whether this...

    Q500 GUI on a 64 bit Mac book pro?

    As far as I know, Yuneec has not updated the GUI for 64 bit? Any way around this, aside from finding an old laptop to use? another concern! 4 to 5 years ago I started to buy Yuneec products over another, like DJI, because the customer service was phenomenal! It was a very common opinion...

    Looking for Dampers or Alternatives

    Good day to you. I have a Q500 4K that I had a *ahem* hard landing and I lost one of my rubber dampers on the gimbal mount. I have started to look online for replacements but I am not finding them anywhere. Everyone that I’ve tried is either sold out or they're listed as discontinued. Didn't...

    Q500 The bird flies away

    Dear Pilots. I have two Q500 G and 4K, I wanted to ask a question about the drone, a problem that has occurred to me more than once and that I could check again. Before flying I have allowed me to acquire all 15 satellites appear on ST10, on the aircraft and 7 on the transmitter. I checked...

    Trying to start w/ a Q500 4K, what is best & worst used for?

    Hello all, I'm new to drones and I'm wondering why isn't the Q500 4K isn't more popular, it seems like a steal for the price! A drone with a good battery life, reasonably priced, from a reliable company, that can be insured so if damaged it can be claimed, w/3-axis gimbal for good original...

    Q500 4k Altitude Drops

    On 5/3/2018 at about 11:23 am ET I was hovering during a test of my Q500 4k. The plan was to fly through my 6 batteries since I hadn't flown the quad in several months. Flight location was Piedmont Park ... a place I often fly. I get there, calibrate the compass and then the accelerometer and...

    Hello, I'm selling my spare camera. I sold my Q500 a year ago and had this new spare laying around. I was going to keep it in case I got another Q but, got an H Pro instead. It has never been used, just tested on the hand grip after I bought it from Yuneec directly. ($549.99). It's been in...

    Failsafe parachute ideas...

    Has anyone tried any parachute mounts to save the drone if a fallout happens? Was thinking about how I could "fallsafe" the drone and create a universal chute that you could activate with the remote.

    cgo3 vs cgo3-GB vs cgo3-GB+

    So I was looking at pricing for replacing my camera for my Q500 4K. I'm trying to figure out why the titles for these listings are different depending on where your looking (see above). I'm thinking the GB stands for gimbal but they all had the gimbal included and there were several that were...

    Symptoms of Compass Calibration Error?

    Hi Folks! I'm a relative "newbie" with my Yuneec Q500 4K drone. I try to follow all the guidance provided in the manuals and from most helpful folks here. I do have a question regarding the calibration of the compass and suspect it applies to other models as well. Although an inconvenience...

    Installing FPVLR Basic Antenna Kit

    Hi guys! So I got my antennae in and took my ST10+ on a two hour drive to have it installed by a "professional". I got home and tested it and got less than 200 feet of range before video cut out. Needless to say, I was pissed. I opened up the ST10+ (terrifyingly) and examined the "job" that...
