A completion level of ready-to-fly (RTF) means this version of the Q500+ Typhoon Quadcopter with CGO2-GB+ Camera and Aluminum Case from Yuneec comes factory-assembled and that a pre-bound transmitter/ground station unit (radio controller) is included. More than just an RC multi-rotor, the Q500+ is designed for APV - aerial photography and video. To this end, it incorporates the CGO2-GB+, a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera updated from the original CGO2-GB+ with a new lens and audio recording capability. As before, it captures 1080p video at up to 60 fps, and shoots photos at 16-megapixels.

The Q500+ is bundled with the ST10+ Personal Ground Station, at 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" touchscreen - a bump from the original ST10, which has a 4.5" screen. It allows you to view an FPV (first-person view) video image from the camera along with telemetry data superimposed, as well as access settings not available through normal transmitter.

As part of the RTF bundle, if features one 5400mAh flight battery, providing up to 25 minutes flying per charge - depending on wind-resistance and other factors. Additionally, the bundle features an aluminum case to safely store and transport the Q500+ and accessories in.

CGO2-GB+ 3-Axis Stabilized Camera

    The included CGO2-GB+ combines a 16-megapixel, 1080p60 camera and a 3-axis brushless gimbal into a single unit designed to capture stabilized aerial video and still images. It features a redesigned lens from the previous version, designed to produce lower distortion. 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" touchscreen on the ST10+ Personal Ground Station. You can also pair with a mobile device using the free CGO2 app - available at Google Play and iTunes app stores. A smartphone holder that mounts on the ST10+ is included

    The camera features a wide angle 130-degree FOV lens. While the gimbal that supports it features a control angle accuracy of ±0.02°. 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 CGO2 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 telemetry data. Updates over the original ST10 include a brighter touchscreen that is now 5.5" in size. The screen plus embedded Android OS enable you to control the CGO2-GB+ camera as well as view a live feed from it, complete with telemetry data overlaid (OSD)

      Flight Control Features

      No-Fly Database

      The Q500+ flight computer has access to a database of published FAA no-fly areas - such as zones near airports. Additionally, the maximum flight altitude can be locked to remain below 400' AGL (above ground level) for further compliance

      Flight Modes

      Smart Mode

      Designed for beginners, this mode uses GPS to establish a 26' "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', help to ensure visual with the quadcopter is always maintained

      Angle Mode

      This mode is optimized for experienced pilots using the Q500+ 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 Q500+ Typhoon will automatically return to its "home point" and land within a 10' circle of where it took off. If for whatever reason the transmitter signal is lost, Return Home will take over and fly the Q500+ back to the home point until it lands or the signal is restored

      Note: Proper GPS calibration is required to ensure this feature works correctly

      question

      Are you really offering the Q500+? The your overview information says Q500 sometimes and Q500+ other times and the downloadable manual doesn't say Q500+ anywhere...it actually specs the Q500's 4.5 display not the Q500+'s 5.5 .
      Asked by: Anonymous
      This is the Q500+ and the larger touchscreen is in the remote.
