Ready-to-fly, remote control aerial photography and videography (APV) quadcopter kit
If you thought capturing stunning aerial photography and exciting airborne video was only possible on a major movie studio/television station budget, just wait until you get a load of the incredibly capable Yuneec Q500 Typhoon RTF. This phenomenal remote control quadcopter is both budgets friendly and remarkably easy to operate. It’s also ready for action right out of the box!
In addition to the aircraft and the ST10 personal ground station, purchase includes the CGO2-GB 12-megapixel, 1080p (60 fps) camera with dedicated 3-axis brushless mounting gimbal; an 8GB micro SD card; a USB adapter/charger; a DC cigarette lighter charger; an extra set of 4 rotors; a sun shade; and a pair of 5400 mAh 3S 11.1 V LiPo batteries – absolutely everything you need to enjoy hours of high-flying fun!
Still not impressed? Wait until you take the Q500 out for a spin. The 10-channel, 2.4GHz transmitter features a built-in 5.8 GHz video downlink for First Person View (FPV) and also displays on-screen telemetry data. Additionally, the copter’s “Coming Home” and “Follow Me” functions make operation a breeze – even for beginners. Batteries provide 20-25 minutes of flight time. Aircraft measures 210mm H x 420mm L x 420mm W and weighs 40 oz (1130 g). With the camera attached, the ship weighs 60 oz (1700 g).
While the Q500 offers a superior flying experience, it is the quality of the video and still images that sets it apart. The CGO2 GB combines the 12 megapixel, 1080p/60FPS camera and the 3-axis brushless gimbal into a single unit that captures smooth, steady aerial video and still images in vivid detail. By far it is the most comprehensive, cost-effective, user-friendly RC quad copter package on the market today.
