This drone comes with a technology that is advanced and very easy to operate at the same time.
When you enable the Follow Me feature, the aircraft will follow or move as the pilot moves, who controls the ST10+ location. When you enable the Watch Me option, the 4K camera point directly at the pilot, who is holding the ST10+, in focus and frame, without regard to the way the drone is manoeuvred.
Switching to the Home Mode, makes the Typhoon fly back towards the direction of the pilot who is holding the ST10+, and causes it to automatically land within 13 to 26 feet (4 to 8 meters) of the pilot.
The Typhoon has the CGO3 camera which features an 115-degree wide-angle distortion-free lens which enables one to view things as they are naturally.
The Typhoon Q500 4k camera is a Gimbal mounted 12-megapixel video/photo shooter with Fixed Focus, Aerial Optimized, and a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor. The lens is relatively wide which is equivalent to a 14mm full-frame camera lens, and it is free of distortion when capturing photos and videos. The footage from the Q500 can be captured in 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution and 2560 x 1440p resolution at 30 frames per second or in Full HD 1080p resolution at a range of frame rates that consist of 24/25/30/48/50/60/120FPS. Also, the camera can take 12 megapixel still shots during flight time.
The capability of Photo out of the box in the Q500 is in default to 12 megapixels JEPG images with attractive, healthy natural colour but when you put the Q500’s camera into Pro mode, it allows you to also capture RAW images in the DNG format for better image quality.
The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4k drone is a high-flyer. However, it may encounter some difficulties during manoeuvres even more than as finding in the DJI Phantom 3. On the other hand, the experience during flight with the Q500 is flexible and awe-inspiring.
The Typhoon comes with a cool “follow-me” mode making it possible to trail along behind you like a dog but can not be distorted by an unexpected object if they get in the way, the Q500 behave like a blind dog and crashes into whatever blocks it pathway. Luckily, two sets of props have been included for replacement in the event some of them break during in-flight accidents.
Most crucially, the Q500 can last for an average of 20 minutes in the air at full speed with lots of manoeuvring. Moving at a very low resolution of the video capture and slower pace might increase your flight time to roughly 25 minutes.
There are three flight modes present in the drone. The beginner mode “Smart”, enable beginners to fly the drone in any direction they push the control stick. This is possible even without considering where the drone’s nose is pointing,
The “Angle” mode, causes the drone to fly wherever you point the nose when you want it to go further, and the “Home” mode, does exactly what its name implies: It send the drone from where ever its path is directly back to you and the ground station.
Driven by great price point, Q500 has loads of features and boasts some solid specs. It can be your excellent companion if you are into serious drone photography.
