Regarding the color, I asked Walkera when this color (CF gray) will be available and they said"
About the Carbon Fiber color of H500, it is the OEM order of one of our customers. Walkera TALI H500 is white.
So, is iUAS the OEM customer that Walkera was talking about? Is that the color that iUAS sells in US?

yeah. that's pretty damn steep. There's a lot you could build for that price.
Jul 11, 2014, 02:40 PM
That is the package price, you can probably get it less from the dealers without the F12E FPV radio transmitter and camera, if you already have those. I believe the F12E alone is about $700

H500 Pre-Production Prototype Photos

Here I have the Tali H500, it is a pre-production copy sent for flight test and exhibition, carbon black unpolished frame. This creature was quarantine in Brazil customs for 2 months as they could not figure out what it was. It was damaged on the plane by UA or customs, so sorry... no test flights for another 2 weeks. Here are the guts of it..

Prototype: Tali H500 lights up bright!

Prototype: Similar to the APM 2.6, GPS and Compass are external

Prototype: The power connectors to LiPo tray

Using Databus to reduce the number of wires, keeps it neat and also reduce vibration leading to flight Controller.

Yes, the X8R looks like it fit just nicely

The video should follow shortly at http://youtube.com/diydrone

OK, too many questions to even know where to begin, and I guess I'm addressing this to DiyDrones.

Do you know how we going to be able to purchase this "USA" "iUAS" or whatever it is edition? Is this what Walkera is now taking orders for on their website, or it is the white version that ships to the US from them?

"iUAS" basically comes up nada on Google. Are they only a distributor? If so, does anyone know who's in their dealer network?

hi VRS,

iUAS just opened a few days ago. The US Edition is just carbon black in color. You can probably purchase it in the US next month at amazon, here is the link until the details are work out with Amazon.


and probably at the dealers the following month, my guess. Walkera has a list of US dealers, and some go back 10 years. You may also find the first batch at Walkera Helicopter Supply, since they are in Washington too.


off the topic, here is a list of dealers fighting over their dealership back in 2009, https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1084508 and of course it all turn out to be quite a rumour, seeing the last few posts.
