With the release of the Wizard remote control, it seems Yuneec is willing to look at new ideas and accessories. The only thing I don't like about follow me mode is having to have a big controller (the S10+) showing in the video. It would be nice if there were a smaller "button" or box you could put in a vehicle or on a person that doesn't show in the image. The position of the Typhoon might be set and controlled by the pilot, but after that, the craft would follow the button (in a car, boat, etc.), rather than the controller. Just a thought.

That's exactly what this remote lets you do and more.

Thanks, I'll look into it. I thought it was just an easy remote control, I didn't realize it could be used for follow me.

As for cost, I'm sure Yuneec has its work cut out for them for pricing. On one hand they have to price for consumers, and on the other, those shooting professionally. To me, I can pad $200 into a job without a problem.

I just purchased the yuneec 4k system and already have a few shoots lined up that the wizard would be perfect for. The release date is a bit of a mystery though.

That's funny you posted that link, cuz that is exactly where I purchased it. $200 is about right for what it does although I bet it'll drop to half that in 6 months or so. I like being a pioneer!
I'll send an update once I get it-

FilmGuy5,

How is the Wizard working for you? Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

I think it would be great if we could set a GPS center point for the Q500 to orbit. Position your Q500 over a given point to establish the center then enter the altitude, distance a speed to define the orbit... Now that would be cool !
