Hi,
Just a quick question.
I have a Typhoon H that I added the realsense module to and also added the 3rd Antenna. I am wanting to get a spare ST16 unit for a back up.
Can I use an ST16 pro, or would that only work with later versions of the Typhoon H?
Thanks,
Alan

Any versions of the standard ST-16 (ST-16 'pro' included) will work with any version of the standard Typhoon H (Typhoon H 'Pro' included). The word 'Pro' merely indicated a few antenna mods as well as a packaging difference - the 'Pro' came with two batteries and a wizard. The flight software is the same throughout these models.

The words 'Pro' and 'Plus' are the confusing point by Yuneec - but must be differentiated.

The Typhoon H 'Plus' can only be controlled the ST-16S due to a totally different flight software and the ST-16S cannot control ANY standard Typhoon H or Typhoon H 'Pro' - and thus the ST-16 'Pro' does NOT work with the Typhoon H Plus.

I wish Yuneec had not made this so confusing but - there it is. ;)

Thanks for that.
Sometimes it gets a little confusing (well for me anyway), because I have read certain posts that made it sound like once Yuneec got passed a certain model Typhoon H, the ST16 changed and then newer ones couldn't retro actively be backdated/used to control older models like the Typhoon H. I had thought the only difference seemed to be the 3 antenna's vs the 2. But I wanted to be sure that it would work with my H before I threw $100 or so out there to buy something. :)

Just to inform that Yuneec, on the latest versions of their Typhoon H Pro (CG03+ camera, 480, without realsense) provides the ST16 + with 3 external antennas.
That's the model I have, I bought it second hand, but was pretty new because it was a warranty replacement due to a crash caused by a faulty battery occurred to the previous owner.
Production date of my bird is March 2019.

Well I just got a PM from @WTFDproject in regards to the topic of using an ST-16 with a Plus and/or an ST16S with a 480. Apparently, if you install the correct firmware into they will work with either model, but it does require the switching of the programming! I had never heard of this but it seems some have had success at it - good to know.
