Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K 12MP / 1080p Quadcopter Drone w/ Flight Simulator & Hard Travel Case

Capture compelling 4K views of your place on the planet! The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K Drone lets you explore your local airspace and see the world from a whole new perspective in controlled and colorful 4K high definition with its on-board camera. GPS-assisted flight control and a 3-axis gimbal work with you to help make your flight time smooth and steady for crystal clear images and video!

An aerial and ground imaging solution that flies for up to 25 minutes, the Typhoon Q500 4K Drone takes commands from you via the two-stick ST10+ remote control and its 5.5" Android-powered touchscreen. The remote control also provides a live video feed from the distortion-reduction lens on the aircraft's camera. Smart Flight Mode gives more novice pilots extra assistance with control while Angle (Pilot) Mode offers advanced users total flight control. You'll need plenty of clear space around the aircraft to use Smart Flight Mode as GPS lock is required.

Typhoon Q500 4K Warning Sheet

WARNING: Smart Mode only works when Typhoon has a suitable GPS signal/lock. If you take off in Smart Mode and Typhoon loses GPS signal/lock it will switch to Angle (Pilot) Mode automatically. This is why we strongly recommend learning to fly in Angle (Pilot) Mode as soon as possible. Otherwise, if you lose GPS signal/lock and are not able to properly control Typhoon in Angle (Pilot) Mode the aircraft may crash or even 'fly away'.
