    I bought my Q500 4K at a hobby shop last year and the wifi connection has never worked properly, video link drops at 30-60 feet. I even tried an ST10+ with upgraded antennae. Yuneec customer service says to drop it off at Best Buy. Does Best Buy work on these or do they just conduit them to Yuneec? Will I need my receipt?

    Those are questions you will need to ask Best Buy. Make sure to get the name of the person at Best Buy you speak with, and the date and time of day in case there are any questions about your conversation with them.

    If you tried a different controller then the problem is in the camera.

    I agree. The current problem is "who will fix it". Yuneec wants me to ship them everything but they haven't supplied a pre-paod shipping label. Best Buy is supposed to be their service center but they don't want it.

    My Q500 crashed on day 2. Yuneec has a service center in Kansas City called kavservice. I had another Drone a week later. Better camera on top of that. I suggest keeping this company in your records. You can get a hold of them at
    kavservice.com and put Att Elizabeth. She was fantastic. Best service I've had on anything. Especially a drone.

    Strange that Yuneec would tell you to take it to Best Buy. Must be a newbie at the service desk. In any case, I've heard some good comments recently about the KAV service. That is a factory service center for Yuneec.

    I bought mine on line from a place in San Fran. Fell out of the shy on day two. KAV contacted me the next day and had me send the telemetry from it. On Monday they contacted me and said they will be replacing it. They shipped it 2nd day. Plus told me to keep the one that crashed. So I have parts or can get a new nodyand fix it. KAV was great.

    Do you want the phone number for KAV to see if they can help you? Best Buy sucks at everything anymore. Most of the people that work at BBs are let's say incompetent.

    Yuneec chose Best Buy to handle warranty services nationwide. If Best Buy employees are incompetent, what does that say about Yuneec?

    DJI and Hubsan are 100 times worse. Never did get any response from Hubsan on a drone that never flew and took DJI 4 weeks to get back and didn't honor their warranty.

    Yuneec finally sent me a shipping label. Let's see how good of a job they can do. This thing has never held a wifi lock and I'm hoping they can make it work.

    I talked to the KB repair center today. They decided that the camera was defective and are replacing it. They will do a test flight today and then return the unit to me.
    I hope to get it back for next week, Spring break for my grandson.
