Pros: It was fairly easy to put together and the camera quality was incredible. Light weight, very easy to box and move around, very sleek and stylish.
Cons: (Based on my experience after all hell broke loose, literally) It wasn't even more than 50 feet above me when it stopped obeying the commands of my controller with a full fresh battery and the safety of a front yard. No matter what I did to try to bring it down and away from the light post, it just keep drifting around and eventually smashed right into the light post breaking the propellers into pieces and launching the battery out like a cannonball which (must be noted) after a successful practice flight in the backyard for 50 feet as well. I call customer service and waited 80 minutes to even talk to somebody and by the time those 80 minutes were up, whoever picked up the phone than immediately hung up on me by either accident or on purpose. I called again and waited another 80 minutes. This time someone finally spoke to me and emailed me about fixing it and sending it the telemetry stuff. I emailed them some questions and it's been about 2 weeks with no answer at all. I called every day for a week straight after waiting a week to have a response to my email and the machine at Yuneec kept saying, "We're currently at a Company Function please call back later." And hung up on me. A whole week straight of this. I now call once every couple days and have been put on hold for 2 hours straight past their closing time which means they hung up on me as soon as 5:00PM hit. I can't be on the phone all day at work just so I can finally get some help from these people. I have yet to receive any reply by call or email at all. I do not recommend this whatsoever.
Let me explain the difference, my phantom was sporty, it ripped through the sky and stopped on a dime. This made the phantom really fun to fly and I was able to get some good videos. The phantom range is also greater out the box but a simple dbs mod could fix that.
However the Q500 is a luxury vehicle in the sky, this bird floats and glides through the heavens. The Q have two modes turtle mode and rabbit. These modes allow you to experience the best of both worlds. The rabbit mode gave you that sports car fell allowing you to zip around with depth pitches and sharp banks. The turtle mode is, great for getting nice smooth videos and photos, allowing you get tight shot of your subject, its also good for beginners. Turtle mode gave beginners the confidence they need to handle the drone.
Here is what I about the Q500 4k. Number one battery. Battery life is great, allowing 15-23 minutes depending on how you fly and use of camera. Smart modes. The smart mode allows you active the follow me function, that force the drone to follow the transmitter as you move. The other smart mode is watch me mode, which keep the camera on the pilot during the whole flight. Another like is the 5 inch touch android screen, built into the controller. With a built in tablet you don't have to worry about buying another device to fly your drone. The steady grip is a great bonus. The steady grips allow you to mount your camera and gimbal onto it's self so you can get great ground footage. L But the best feature of this drone to me is the camera. This 4k camera gives you stunning beautiful pictures and videos.
The Typhoon Q500 4k do have its downfalls. There is not goggle maps on the screen, as I had on phantom. The Q also lacks way point and orbit me mode. I think the firmware update process could be easier. Currently you have to connect the drone to your computer and you have to update the camera, drone and controller separately.
Over all this is a great drone and I'm loving every moment of it.
