The Yuneec Q500+ 4K is bundled with the ST10+ Personal Ground Station, a 10-channel, 2.4 GHz transmitter and 5.8 GHz video receiver rolled into one hand-held unit. In addition to traditional RC joysticks to pilot the quadcopter, there is a built-in Android mobile device which boasts a 5.5 in. touchscreen. It allows you to view an FPV (first-person view) video image from the camera along with flight telemetry data, as well as access settings not available through normal transmitters.
As part of the Ready-To-Fly (RTF) bundle, it features one 5400mAh flight battery, providing up to 25 minutes flying per charge - depending on wind-resistance and other factors.
CGO3-GB 4K 3-Axis Stabilized Camera - The included CGO3-GB camera combines a 12-megapixel, 4K camera and a 3-axis brushless gimbal into a single unit designed to capture stabilized aerial video and still images. In addition to 4K, the camera can shoot 1080p at 120 fps for slow-motion as well as 60p, 50p, and 48p. Photos can be captured in JPEG or DNG RAW and it is possible to snap photos while recording video. Additionally, it features a built-in microphone which can be turned on or off via the ST10+ or app. For live view and remote operation, the camera features an integrated 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi downlink that enables operation and viewing from the 5.5 in. touchscreen on the ST10+ Personal Ground Station. You can also pair with a mobile device using the free CGO3 app - available at Google Play and iTunes app stores. The camera features a wide angle 130-degree FOV lens. While the gimbal that supports it features a control angle accuracy of +/-0.02 degrees. High quality video and stills are recorded to a microSD card up to 128GB in size. Low quality, upload-friendly versions can be saved onto a mobile device running the CGO3 app.
ST10+ Transmitter/Personal Ground Station - Transmitter (hand-held radio controller) and ground station system are combined into one device with the 10-channel ST10+. It features a 2.4 GHz transmitter for joystick operation of the quadcopter. In addition, there is a 5.8 GHz-range receiver for the video feed from the camera plus flight telemetry data. The ST10 includes a bright touchscreen that is 5.5 in. in size. The screen plus embedded Android OS enable you to control the CGO3-GB camera as well as view a live feed from it, complete with flight telemetry data overlaid (OSD).
Flight Control Features - No-Fly Database - The Q500+ 4K flight computer has the database of published FAA no-fly areas - such as zones near airports built into the flight controller. Additionally, the maximum flight altitude is locked to remain below 400 ft. AGL (above ground level) for further compliance.
The Yuneec Q500+ has 3 Flight Modes:
- Smart Mode - Designed for beginners, this mode uses GPS to establish a 26 ft. SAFE Circle around the pilot. Stick relativity is maintained, meaning the aircraft will move in the same direction the stick is pressed is relative to the pilot, regardless of which way the quadcopter's actual nose is pointing. A virtual barrier imposes maximum radius of 300 ft., helping to ensure visual with the quadcopter is always maintained.
- Angle Mode - This mode is optimized for experienced pilots using the Typhoon Q500+ 4K for aerial photography. It provides more control and steeper bank and pitch angles, helping open your work up to a greater variety of possible shots.
- Home Mode - This safety feature can be activated at any time with the simple flip of a switch on the ST10+. When activated, the Typhoon Q500+ 4K will automatically return to its home point and land within a 10 ft. circle of where it took off. If for whatever reason the transmitter signal is lost, Return Home will take over and fly the Typhoon back to the home point until it lands or the signal is restored.
The Yuneec Q500+ 4K also has these flight features:
- Follow Me & Watch Me - With this mode, the gimbal keeps the camera trained on the operator holding the ST10+ either from the front or behind.
The Yuneec Q500+ 4K Includes the CGO Steady Grip for CGO3-GB Camera - Transform the Yuneec CGO3-GB Full HD camera and gimbal system into a handheld, stabilized mini-rig with the included the CGO Steady Grip. It features a smartphone holder for iOS and Android devices that have screens up to 6.4 in. so that you can use the app to monitor a live feed and operate camera settings (5.8 GHz Wi-Fi support on the mobile devices is required). The CGO3-GB slides on with rail attachment for quick setup and draws its power from six AA batteries that are housed in the base (batteries available separately). A pitch control roller on the top of the handgrip allows you to manually adjust camera tilt while shooting.
The Federal Aviation Administration requires unmanned aircraft that weigh more than 0.55 pounds (250 grams) on takeoff (including everything on board or attached), and are operated outdoors, to be registered at the FAA's Unmanned Aircraft Systems website. Additional state and local requirements may apply. Check your local jurisdiction.
