just got my replacement h520e from yuneec with all new firmware applied. got some night flights with e30zx done. I think the new antennas are going to be mixed verdict. had some glitches with video feed. There is a issue with the video recording. much harder to get a video recording started or stopped. camera function not a issue with that. as for video feed issue need to do more testing at another location for confirmation. Have not tested distance from controller to see if range is same, better, or worse than my first h520e. with the switch to more omni based versus patch on the h520e arms I am expecting some change with performance not yet sure where it will fall under. here is some low light e30zx photos

I flew some long missions last week and still had two OFDM bars at over 3300m.

after 4 more flights no control issue rose up. there was some video feed dropping out but that was video link with st16e that was effected photos and video on sd card was not effected. did 3 more night flights with h520e with e90x. now there is a marked difference when in photo mode compared to video mode. photo mode I can still make out the ground and buildings . video mode only lights that are lit show up and buildings do not show up unless lit with lights and if so not as well than if it was in photo mode.

What about problems using E30ZC camera with H520E ?
Our drone with this camera is still in Yuneec Europe service for like more than 2 months.
Just when drone with camera is purchased , Yuneec issued statement that this combo should be sent to service because it is possible that in this combination drone can lose power.
They told us to send it back to service so they can fix this. Now after 2 months of not fixing, they seems don't have solution yet.
And yet they are selling H520E with E30ZX camera so this is confusing.

Any thoughts about that from you guys ?

I am using h520e and e30zx have not given me power issues to date. what the firmware versions were on the h520e you sent back? Also did 4 further test flights in Fulton County Ohio on oem antenna range, general flight stability, video feed range. Results there is some loss of range with the new omni antenna setup. Video feed was stable so earlier issues on the 3rd and 4th of july were from frequency interference that was in that area. no control link issues. data pilot 2.0 program usage requires more input to set up for programmed auto flights. More of additional learning curve but easy to adapt to. full flight range can be recovered with the standard 4hawks antenna without the boosters added.

We returned drone and E30ZX camera just because Yuneec issued general warning that we should return it as they found possible issue with this combination H520E + E30ZX. Actually it could be possible problem with battery connector overheating, here is this general warning they sent out in late March this year.

*****
Dear customer,

During quality control, we found in some cases an overheating of the battery connector on the H520E when used with the E30ZX camera (Item No.YUNE30ZXEU).

If you are using this combination, please stop doing so and send the camera E30ZX back to our Service Center, filling the form of the RMA System (https://rma.yuneec.de/customer).

We are very sorry for any inconvenience. We will solve the problem as soon as possible.

After Sales Service Team Europe.

I'm using the H520e with the E30Zx for several months now, mainly for inspection flights. So far no problems with this combination.
I also didn't receive any general warning from Yuneec or from the seller here in Germany.
Regarding the service time at Yuneec EU: I had a RMA service with my E90x camera some weeks ago, because the gimbal was partly damaged. It took them 6 weeks and several emails until they finally repaired the camera and sent it back to me. The camera is working properly again (that's the good part), but 6 weeks are way too long, especially when you have a business.
