The editors liked

  • I honestly loved how easy it was to get familiar with the Q500. The fact that you can also buy a full kit with an aluminum case and extra batteries makes it seem like the best all-you-really-need drone package out there. It's not only easy to fly thanks t
  • Easy to learn
  • Smooth flight
  • Gorgeous footage
  • Easily swapped batteries
  • Simple yet advanced ground control transmitter
  • Multiple flight modes
  • Handheld steadycam allows you to use the 4K camera on the ground
  • Nice durable carrying case
  • 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.
  • 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

  • Great design

The editors didn't like

  • I missed the jerky little DJI Phantom at times. While I appreciated the flexible range of speeds offered by Yuneec's ST10+ ground control
  • I wanted the handling to be a little bit sharper at times. This feeling was emboldened by my test of the Blade drone
  • Structural stability can use some work after the frame cracked due to a 10′ fall
  • Carrying case requires everything to be put back perfectly or else it won't close
  • Lens is blurry at edges of frame. Automatic white balance can be inconsistent. Larger than comparable drones. Sometimes erratic in the air. Limited flight time. Battery charger can get very hot. Camera gimbal is slow to adjust. Bulky case isn't easy to to
  • 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
  • Controller is overly complicated
  • Video is a little noisy
  • 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
  • Slightly less agile than the Phantom 3 from DJI
  • Slightly lower flight time
  • Heavy battery

  • Abstract:  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 2015 a...

  • Abstract:  A drone is a drone, is a drone, right? Wrong! No drone appears to have such a quick learning curve as the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K. It is not your run of the mill $50.00 RC helicopter with a little camera. This is nothing short of being a high tech, top of...

  • I had a blast reviewing the Typhoon Q500 4K drone. It's great for beginner levels of drone enthusiasts. It's an easy drone to learn with (if I can learn, anyone can), you get more than decent 4K camera, and 2 batteries to work with. If you don't want...

  • Are you just starting to become a serious drone pilot, one that’s willing to shell out more than a G for a very versatile craft? Then, yes, you should buy it. I’ve flown a lot of drones, but I’ve seldom felt so confident and safe behind the controls as I...
