I have heard there is a micro switch added to the battery lock to prevent flight if it is not locked. Also redundant contact points on the battery connector to ensure reliable contact.

The battery very likely has the same pin arrangement as the H3:

It all makes me feel "E" is a completely new platform. Those of us who fly h520 currently will earn nothing from its introduction. Nothing of h520 we have today, like batteries, chargers, cameras etc. is going to fit the new one.

just waiting for the october release date. and a few months later to get my hands on it. I am liking my current h520 even more. just did 4 new test flights at vbro in Louisiana got go ahead from the vrbo owner and the farmer next door. Location not ideal. heavy power lines just to the south of me power poles crisscrossing the property one pole with 3 transformers. The place has a metal roof. first thing I did was recalibrate compass and the accel. h520 was stable no drifting even with 3 transformer power poles close by. took off the ground at low AGL crossed under one wire that ran to the other side of the road. Then cleared the wire and gained 398ft AGL and never had any issues with the h520. I did not use the oem omni antenna. I used 3hawks xr with boosters on a tripod and the controller was also on a tripod. RSSI were running 71 to 78 at 2500 ft from st16s location. Also It be nice if we can change out the current h520 battery plug to the h520e battery plug on the h520 to keep it in the air longer after all our current h480 and h520 batteries need replaced. same battery wire changeout for those who have the h plus or even the veteran h480

confirmed from vertigo drones web site they show the h3 mainboard the main battery wire can be swapped to the other yuneec hex units. batteries are running 200.00 per battery. and yuneec has a dy5 charger for the h3 battery in europe. vertigo drones should look into offering them here in the us.

  • RTK (Real Time Kinematic) module for high accuracy relative positioning: 1 cm + ppm horizontal / 2 cm + ppm vertical
  • Keep cm precision in even GNSS challenging environment (e.g. between high buildings)
  • For faster and more precise mapping (e.g. complex surveying, inspections, mapping, 3D displays)
  • 5 Hz update rate of position, velocity and time
  • All data including raw GNSS data and real time solution can be logged on board - ready for PPK
  • Support signals of up to 3 GNSS constellations among GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou

Does this offering include e90X?
I'm afraid it doesn't. The camera will increase the price by another €1,5k.

The camera constantly losing focus in that video got on my nerves after a while.
I know if I mention the number of times he said "errr", I'm going to get flak for criticising someone use their not-first-language, but I think he could have rehearsed better.

So, I read somewhere on one of the H520E docs, that Yuneec has finally found a function for the AUX button! Drop system activation. BTW his English is parsecs ahead of my and probably your Polish..... just saying ;)

Very much so, my Polish is strictly limited to swearing.

Indeed. As well as new cameras. Scarcely anything from an old bird will be useable.
