I'm not sure where to begin. There are so many problems with Typhoon G, right out of the box. Again i have been in the hobby for a long time now. I rep other companies mainly in helicoper industry. I know one of the guys who left Align to work for Yuneec. I have DJI products and know them pretty well. Without my experience I would have had to return this model already. I decided to try something different, mostly because I wanted handheld gimbal, so far I am regretting my decision and will probably return it to the store. I will list all issues so far. TX battery completely dead. Had to charge as a NIMH just to get enough power into it so that it would register on any charger. Rechargeable NIMH AA batteries don't fit in handheld remote but fit in amy other devices I put them in. Firmware on TX won't update (it can't seem to see files). At least one motor sounds like it's bad or going bad (grinding noise when changing speeds, could be an ESC problem also). Gimbal not working (can't get it to do anything, and it looks very cheap compared to Zenmuse DJI gimbal, motors are tiny) but need to get it working before I can judge it. I will give Yuneec a call tomorrow and depending on response I may or may not post my review online. My friends in the industry will probably just say "I told you so". I have not searched the fourms yet for answers to my issues but I really should not have to when a product like this is being sold at Bestbuy not at a high end hobby store.
