In this video we go through the steps of how to do Watch Me mode and how to do Follow Me mode as well as Return To Home mode.
The three position switch on the transmitter should be place in Smart by flipping it upward which sets Follow Me mode by default but the Q500 can be toggled between Watch Me and Follow Me modes by tapping the icon on the upper right corner of the screen. To get out of smart mode just flip the 3 position switch to the angle setting in the center position or all the way down to return to home.
The Typhoon seems to be quiet and easy to fly, has good speed but not as fast as the DJI Phanton 4. The 4K camera has a steady and beautiful video image. Surprising the battery is only 3s but can be fitted with a 7500mah for long flight times.
The Typhoon Q500 4K has the option to come with a lightweight aluminum case and two extra batteries, equipped with compartments for every niche. The case provides easy travel with style, while ensuring equipment is secure and locked up all in one place. Whether you are on the road or on the fly, the case allows you to venture into your world, capturing every moment along the way.
The twist-on design makes assembly easy by simply rotating A and B labeled propellers. A propeller tool is also provided to help installation.
The TYPHOON Q500 4K comes with a 6300mAh 3S 11V LiPo battery, allowing for an extended flight time. The sleek pop-open compartment allows you to quickly and effortlessly slide in and swap batteries for even more flight time.
** NOTICE: It has come to our attention that during manufacturing we mislabeled the flight battery (YUNQ500105) for the Yuneec Q500. All first-run batteries have a label that states 5400mAh when the battery is actually a 6300mAh capacity pack. There is no need to worry as there have been no changes made to the Q500 battery and it has always been 6300mAh.
25-Minute Flight Time
Made by experts in electric propulsion and electric aviation, the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K comes with a 6300mAh 3S 11.1V LiPo battery, giving users a superior flight time of up to 25 minutes.
Move. Capture. Create.
The STEADYGRIP™ CGO3 system combines a 3-axis precision gimbal with Yuneec’s 4K Ultra High Definition video camera, allowing you to capture amazing and stable video footage. The camera pitch controller allows precise camera angle control while on-the-go, using a mobile device, with up to a 6.4-inch display.
When Follow Me is enabled, the aircraft is leashed to the pilot, who is controlling the ST10+ location. With this feature, flying and capturing video following the pilot is easy, flexible and intuitive.
When Watch Me is enabled, the 4K camera stays pointed at the pilot, holding the ST10+, in focus and in frame, no matter which way the drone is maneuvered.
Dynamic Return Home
Switch to Home Mode, and the Typhoon will fly back towards the location of the pilot holding the ST10+, and will automatically land within 13 to 26 feet (4 to 8 meters) of the pilot.
The CGO3 camera features a 115-degree wide-angle distortion-free lens that allows you to see the world just as is.
Professional Camera Interface
Real-time telemetry data made available on the screen during flight including flight mode, altitude, speed over ground, distance from home, camera status, GPS position coordinates, and aircraft battery status.
Controls expected by professionals include adjustable video resolution and white balance, while light exposure can be controlled automatically or manually, including ISO and Shutter Speed.
The camera also allows users to take pictures in RAW(DNG) and JPEG format.
