Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K review

 

Camera options for your average consumer drone are limited to either a mount for a GoPro or similar camera or a built-in camera that is permanently attached to the drone. The former is fine, though it may or may not give you a first-person view (FPV)...

The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K offers smooth, stable flight for grabbing photos and video from the air as well as the ground with its included handgrip. All-in-one controller with first-person-view screen and camera controls. Comes with two batteries, two...

The Typhoon Q500 4K's size isn't travel-friendly. There's no support for waypoint navigation. The overall design could use some polish. Video quality is good, but best viewed at small sizes on tablets and phones.

Thanks to some useful accessories and a solid feature set, the smooth-flying, easy-to-use Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K quadcopter is a compelling package for video and photos in the sky or on the ground.

Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K

 

The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K drone offers a lot of features for the price, but its video quality can be disappointing.

4K video capture. Slow motion possible at 1080p. Remote control with integrated LCD. Includes hard case and two batteries. Removable camera with handheld video mount. Very quiet during flight.

Lens is blurry at edges of frame. Automatic white balance can be inconsistent. Larger than comparable drones. Battery charger can get very hot. Camera gimbal is slow to adjust. Bulky case isn't easy to tote.

Conclusions The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K certainly looks good on paper. It records in 4K, offers a removable camera and handheld stabilization system, and (if you opt for the more expensive package) ships with a carrying case and extra battery. But it's...

Review: Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K

 

When it comes to consumer-level drones, one model rules the skies. DJI's Phantom drone, the Phantom 3 in particular, is the flying machine of choice for professional videographers, drone enthusiasts, and increasingly, mass-market consumers.

Easy to fly even for those who've never laid eyes on a drone before. Quick and easy setup. Controller includes a nice, if a little small, Android display---no need for phones or battery-draining mobile apps. Price is right

Big, heavy and slow. What makes it great for beginners makes it less great for those used to the nimbleness of other drones. The range is limited compared to similarly specced models from other manufacturers

I can recommend it, especially if you’re shopping for your first drone, or just one that’s easy to fly and has a capable, high-resolution camera. The slowness, range, and other faults are things that probably won’t bother you until you become more...

Yuneec Q500 Typhoon 4K Drone Review

 

I've been flying Yuneec's Q500 Typhoon 4K quadcopter for several months. It is the total package from what you want and expect from a drone for the serious consumer. I'm a huge fan and all-aboard the Yuneec train. I was introduced to Yuneec in April...

Yuneec TYPHOON Q500 4K Drone [Review]

 

This has been the year of the drone. They have been talked about more this year than any other in my opinion. Amazon wants to use them to deliver packages while others are using them for harm whether flying them into or near buildings such as the White...

If this is the first time you are handling a drone I don’t think you can go wrong with the Typhoon Q500 4K from Yuneec. It’s easy to learn, comes with a big remote control with a great display, and comes equipped with accessories such as car charger,...

Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K Review: This Is My New Favorite Drone

 

Learning how to fly a drone is scary. First of all drones are scary. They have a bad habit of falling out of the sky and into the stands of very important tennis matches. But flying in general is scary because, well, most people have never done it....

Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K Drone Review

 

Priced at $1,299, the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K offers a lot of features for the money. It comes with everything you need to fly and start capturing video and still images in a handy carrying case, including two batteries and a large 16GB SD card for...

Long battery life ; Big, clear screen on remote ; Useful tracking features

Controller is overly complicated ; Video is a little noisy

The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K is a powerful drone with numerous flight modes and high-quality video, but some of the features are overcomplicated and difficult to use.

Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K review

 

Great image quality at a decent price – just don't crash it.

Excellent performance ; ST10+ controller is one of the best ; 4K video recording is superb

Bodywork is largely plastic ; Battery stamina is average ; Batteries take ages to charge

It may be cheaper than the competition, and lack that premium feel, but the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K has talent where it counts. Its 4K video capture is excellent, while the bundled ST10+ Personal Ground Station controller scores over its rivals thanks...
