    I bought this at the Ownings Mills store, I ask for the 4K Typhoon I ask the clerk I didn't not think the one she bought was correct. She told me I was wrong and the Extra Battery was inside. Went home open the Box IT WAS THE WRONG UNIT. Took it back to the store another Clerk brought me the Correct one He told me the Lady who sold the Unit was not familiar with Drones. I again asked about the Extra Battery and the 75.00 dollar certificate again was told it was in the This unit as it was on the Add and everything was in the Box. GOT HOME THE EXTRA ITEMS WHERE NOT IN THE BOX BACK TO THE STORE. The new clerk said that stuff had to be added after the purchase. To sum up this these folks at the store are very poor as they considered me a problem, ask for the manager was told in meetings to busy.

    I have 2 of these drones one I bought from Best Buy the other from Yuneec. Originally I had intended to purchase the Go Pro Karma but the salesman at BB talked me into the Q500 4k. The other I bought thinking would be used to cannibalize for parts. Both have the same issues. Poor connectivity for video, has a mind of its own & will do as it wants when it wants. In the 6 months since I bought the first one I have had to replace the complete airframe one one twice the other once due to crashes when it becomes unresponsive. Both have been sent in for service twice & it seems to be getting worse not better.

    I bought this for my 28 yo son for Christmas. He didn't ask for it, but I knew it would blow him away and that he'd get plenty of use out of it. He was blown away indeed and shortly after Christmas, my fiancée noticed how much I myself was wanting one...so she commanded me to order one. On my inaugural flight, the aircraft was crashed into by a seagull that appeared from nowhere!! My new "toy" was TOAST!! The following morning, I headed into Best Buy and bought a replacement. This bird flies beautifully, is extremely sofisticated, elegant and records GORGEOUS imaging as well. Just be aware that you have to register it with the FAA and perform a binding regimen before you fly. Would also recommend downloading the free AirMap app to check your surroundings.

    My first drone was a Typhoon G. I bought it last year. It flew great. All Auto-pilot functions worked well. The camera use with the Hero 4 was a pain in the rear. I decided to get the 4K Typhoon this year and it is great. You do the same setup for flight you did before without having to mess with the camera. The images are beautiful and the video is fluid. The gimbal is very stable and reveals very little movement and zero shaking. The drone is quiet also. I filmed several animals from only 15 to 25 feet up, on the maiden flight...None were aware I was overhead. AND, of course, since it has been a year since my first drone purchase, I paid only a $100 more than I did for the G. For the price, this rocks.

    Does what it claims

    Yuneec Typhoon 4K is complete ready to fly drone with extrenely useful features like follow me and watch me modes. It does everything that it claims perfectly. The smoothness of the video is amazing. Distortion on its wide angle lens is negligible compared to gopro. I am happy that I bought the 4k version versus the G. The things I don't like, bigger than the djis to carry around and the landing gear is not foldable. I am not saying it should electronically fold like higher end models but we should be able to easy disassemble for carrying purposes without the need for unsrewing. I would give a 5 star with these two.

    Super easy to fly! Great video footage.

    Was looking for a a way to film my kids outdoor activities. I had no experience flying anything, but thought the idea of a drone sounded like what I needed. My friend has one of these and recommended it. It was so easy to fly right out of the box! So much fun and got great footage and still shots of my kids. Picked up a Wizard and had the boys try the "Follow Me" mode. It's like a personal action adventure movie. Not sure how this compares to others, but it was perfect for me.

    I purchased this from Yuneec in Ontario CA. Ryan was very informative and even let me test fly a production model in their parking lot. Being a professional photographer I really need something with a more professional camera set up like the DJI Inspire with the Zenmuse X5 camera rig. If you are in the market for a great starter drone with a good 4k camera this is the drone for you

    Best spy drone

    Posted
    JonnySpy

    Before I purchased the product I did ALOT of research and after using it, let me tell you it is THE BEST spy drone available. The easy controls and hover features allow easy stabilization even for beginners, allowing a none blurry and easy focus on the window in question. The 1080p camera allows perfect picture at 60fps, providing a crisp video that captures every pixel inside the window you are spying on. The only problem is the sound is not too good; but let me be clear, it's really easy to use if you only want to spy on Windows. Let me tell you the range is insane, I use to have to creep from window to window but now with the super spy drone my window peaking abilities now have a 5 miles diameter.

    Good imagery and great responsiveness from the controls. I purchased it to use in my business. However, I did return it for two reasons. #1 It is supposed to hover at it's location when you release the controls and it did not. It would drop altitude slowly. #2 It's Return to Home function works GREAT!, It makes a beeline straight for you. Downside is that it cannot see trees, fences or objects in general so the probability is there for a crash. Would I recommend this drone to a friend? Absolutely! It's a perfect drone, very responsive and I loved the huge screen on the controller. For taking area pictures and just having fun, this is the drone for you.

    This product was broke from the get go. The remote control was not working so i had to exchange it for a new one 2 days after purchased. The "new" drone was no better! After charging we were finally able to fly it. When the drone was about 2 feet off the ground ready to land, the propeller snapped and the drone went down causing the camera to break and ripped the wires in the camera. Now I'm not sure why a $900 done would do this..maybe if i had bought it at the dollar store..but i would never have expected this from something of that price! Of course Best Buy couldn't do anything so i have to try Get results now from the manufacturer...lol we'll see how that goes!

    Purchased this item Nov. 20, 2015. I purchased the drone and one extra battery. It was Dec of 2016 I had just made sure both batteries were fully charged and was out showing my granddaughters what the drone could do. I had only had it up about 2 min when all of a sudden the viewer showed critical battery and then the rotors just quit. It was at an altitude of about 100 ft. I had low battery before but there was always time to safely bring the drone in long before the battery just quit....I am going to pursue this with the manufacturer also . To replace the damaged parts will cost more than I would pay for a new drone!!!!

    Great image quality, but there are better options

    The image quality on this quad is outstanding. The gimbal is more effective than the Phantom, producing a really stable video, even in wind. That being said, there are better options available. The battery life is really poor. It says 25 minutes, but I haven’t been able to get more than 12 minutes, even in calm conditions. Between that and the size of it that makes it cumbersome to carry around or travel with, compared to some of the other quads that we own, this one will be the one we use the least.

    Do Not Buy!!!

    The propeller design is terrible. I had it for 24 hours, and I that time I spent at least 2 hours reading and studying the manuals, and 2 flights. The first flight was good, easy to fly, but the second flight was the end of it. Once increasing speak after being airborne for one minute, I decided to fly about 50 feet in one direction at an altitude of 100 feet. During that movement, a propeller flew off, and the drone came crashing down. Customer service through yuneec is terrible and if you don't spend $200 ok geek squad, which I was not even offered, you will end up dealing with a stubborn company that doesn't back their customers up.

    This was a christmas gift for my boyfriend. He absolutely loves it and can't believe the quality of the stills/video even on a windy day! The only downside to this drone from what I can tell is that initially you can not fly it within 4 Mile's of an airport but he said it was easy to get a software update to get around this. He has crashed it a few times but all that needed fixing was some new props and it was off and flying again.

    Great drone for beginner/ pro

    I researched multiple drones ranging from the 3dr solo and dji phantom series. Nothing matched the yuneec. It's very easy to use . It has modes to start as a beginner/ intermediate / and pro. The 4K resolution is wonderful. I've only taken it 400 feet up and 1100 feet out and it's work great!!

    I did extensive research before purchasing the Q500. I decided that it was the best all around machine for learning and progressing in my endeavors to do aerial photography. I can recommend this machine to anyone interested. You just need to decide what you plan on doing with it and the features needed. The most important item for me was to get a machine that was complete right from the start. I did not need a tablet or camera. It had everything needed to fly. I charged the battery and was flying with no trouble. Great machine.

    I really enjoyed this yuneec q500 drone. Great to fly and love camera functions and quality. The only thing I found wrong with this product is on 2 different occasions I went to fly it is pushed the control forward away from me and it went side ways. The first time it did this is had to turn everything off and back on and it worked fine. The second time it did this it crashed. They did make it up so I thank Best Buy for that. But they had sold me the VR headset and it does not even work with that drone at all.

    We have had our drone for about a month now. The battery life is maybe 20 minutes max, recommend several additional batteries if you want to accomplish anything. The drone handle well but we have had some issues with it. The gimble doesn't center every time it's flown, it seems to be hit or miss. We also had a problem with the drone syncing to the remote and had to do a bunch of resets. Other than this issues which we have fixed I think it was a good buy. We really enjoy the pictures and the amazing quality.

    The drone flies very good, very responsive, flies very high and far and comes back. The best thing I like is that you don't need an iphone like some high tech drones require, you have the screen right on the control and that makes it a lot easier and a great advantage. Don't need to download any apps and don't have to use your phione while flying. It also comes with extra propellers, which was an unexpected surprise. Overall this is the best drone out there for the money.
