His high altitude issue is a problem with the himself, not the vehicle. Yuneec software allows you to change your altitude limits. This guy is unaware of this apparently, which makes me believe some of his other issues are related to lack of understanding or experience. Yuneec is an awesome company that design civilian full-scale electric aircraft. I have a Q500 4K on its way to me and very excited to get it. 4K video with no distortion is what sold me. And I'll be able to film 1080p at 120 frames per second for slow motion. I believe Yuneec uses a derived version of a 3DR autopilot.

It's their treament of him that is the slam. He right about their completely not standing behind their product. No excuse for that. I'm sure that Horizon would have treated him much better. The Yuneec does seem like it's very nice for the price but sad to hear that after market support for their customers is basically crap.

That's odd. Yuneec actually has pretty good customer service from what I heard on RC forums.

Hope so. He seemed pretty honest in his problems. Clearly they are not RC folk just consumers and don't know why they don't get the fixed camera Yuneec promised or concern for what seems like clearly a silly firmware issue with the altitude (not height) restriction. I have to say that seems pretty reasonable to expect Yuneec to give a crap but for him he's saying they did not.

Well, wait. I see now that you can basically get a Yuneec through Horizon. ie:

http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...-c-go3-blh8675

If that's the case then I'd go with that. I can't see Horizon letting bad customer support (unless they have recently changed). Guessing their issue then is they bought it just direct or local hobby shop and not a Horizon branded version.

Short but cool. I admit I have some desire to have a nice camera quad but reallly have no need for one. I just like the tech aspect of them. The Yuneec has a lot of features for the money.

There's 15 more minutes from the same flight, but it's all boring since it's me getting used to the machine in an open field.
