My name is David. I am considering a Yuneec Typhoon + purchase. I am a current Phantom pilot (but plan on jumping ship). I am hopping to progress my flying to some form of Commercial / Search and Rescue work in the future. I live in southern Oregon so I have a great deal of non restricted areas to fly. I'm curious about Yuneek as a company on several fronts. Their web site seem limited with respect to any parts and accessories. I am convinced the aircraft are very high quality yet not much information is available on their web site, as well as, U-tube channel. I welcome any information for a newcomer.

Welcome aboard. And just a friendly FYI, it is spelled Yuneec (with a c) . ;)

Where in southern Oregon are you located?

Welcome to the forum @Mostbestus . I don't fly the H+. I'm still using the TH480 but may progress to the H+ at some future date.

Like you, I came from flying Phantoms (P2 Vision & Vision Plus) and, indeed, still fly the P2V+ when the task warrants it, but the TH has been my go-to aircraft since I took delivery at the start of June 2016.

There are plenty of very experienced 'Plus' owners on here with a wealth of knowledge. My expertise is with the TH480 but I'll help wherever I can.

What a friendly forum you folks have ...thankyou so much for introduction and information. I hope I am navigating the forum correctly and responding to all of you with my appreciation. Are you finding parts for your H480 okay ?

Thankyou for your responding … I two started in the hobby realm. I have trimmed bushes with my Phantom 3 and feel 6 props will make the trimming much faster.

I was sure I sent my appreciation for your introduction. However, I did not see it in the thread. Thankyou again

Ha! No worries. I've been to Roseburg. Removed some underground tanks at a U-Haul site there back in 1998.

Best thing about the 6 props is that you can land on 5 iNBC an emergency.
