Peter Ellin of Aces Deals had an interview in late May with the head honcho of Yuneec and he was very specific in saying they were not going to develop any additional capabilities for the Typhoon platform. He was particularly emphatic on the "no waypoints" thing. So, sad but true (so far). The video is buried somewhere in the Q500 facebook group, I'll try to dig it up.I sure hope that's not true.. : /
For the Q or for the Tornado? I sure hope I'm proven wrong!I was told by a Yuneec rep at a tradeshow this summer that they are developing a base station type app so you can program waypoints. he said it would be released sometime this fall. I would have one of these in my stable if they had the capability of programming a survey.
That would be AWESOME if true. Waypoints and POI are two capabilities I really miss with the Q500.I was told by a Yuneec rep at a tradeshow this summer that they are developing a base station type app so you can program waypoints. he said it would be released sometime this fall. I would have one of these in my stable if they had the capability of programming a survey.
Wow, you just described the new Typhoon H, only off with the price point. I hope they don't abandon the Q500 platform and make some of the "H" goodies available with a Firmware update.If they can make it happen with a firmware update, it would be a really competitor for DJI. If not possible they better make it happen ASAP with the next version, offering better distance, speed, waypoints, and retractable landing gear with a 360 camera that can be connected to the second transmitter. And sell it around 1500 USD and than DJI will start to worry. Even now, its a very nice package but needs more polish! I hope Yuneec guys are innovative enough and are reading rcgroups etc.. When they do it, I ll buy without second thoughts.. Otherwise although it does not offer that much accesories and etc, even Phantom 3 Standart offers better distance, better speed, with an acceptable camera and very intuitive app for Apple and Android for FPV and Waypoints at 699 USD which is half of Yuneec price.. Not everyone cares about a bag or steadygrip although I do, but distance and waypoints are my (and most enhousiast quad pilots) priority nowadays.. I belive in Yuneec guys and waiting for 2016 for a Yuneec 4K V2 with these features or similar and more.. Hope IBM deal also help them to accomplish this!
