While this story started out being a simple text companion to results of my experience with both the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K and Typhoon G copters, it morphed into something entirely different. In fact, while I’ll provide my opinion on these copters momentarily, if you scroll below the video you’ll find a very long and detailed guide to both the pros and cons of owning and flying a Yuneec Q500 4K.
If you follow my posts on various copter-oriented Facebook forums or subscribe to my YouTube channel, you already know that I’ve produced quite a few videos on the Yuneec Q500 4K and have documented my experiences. Not all of them have been perfect, but I call ’em as I see ’em. As I began writing this piece, I went into it with the desire of wanting it to be helpful to not only those who have decided to purchase a Typhoon and were seeking guidance on the two models, but also for those who may be considering their first copter and were in search of some detailed information on the Typhoon models. So, in order to make this story useful to others in the future, I thought it best to tell the entire story and not just the “Cliff Notes” version.
But don’t worry, if you have a short attention span and don’t feel the need to read my full overview and simply want my recommendation between the two models, I’ll now reveal my pick between the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K and the Typhoon G GoPro model. My recommendation is:
Typhoon Q500 4K
There, how’s that? Now, here’s the video:
