A completion level of ready-to-fly (RTF) means this version of the Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter with CGO3-GB Camera 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 4K is designed for APV - aerial photography and video. To this end, it incorporates the CGO3-GB, a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera with 4K video recording, 1080p video recording at up to 120 fps, and shoots photos at 16-megapixels.

The Q500 4K is bundled with the ST10+ Personal Ground Station, a 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 two 5400mAh flight batteries, providing up to 25 minutes flying each per charge - depending on wind-resistance and other factors.


CGO3-GB 3-Axis Stabilized Camera
The included CGO3-GB combines a 16-megapixel, 4K camera and a 3-axis brushless gimbal into a single unit designed to capture stabilized aerial video and still images. In addition to 4K, the camera can shoot 1080p at 120 fps for slow-motion as well as 60p, 50p, and 48p. A built-in microphone enables audio recording and can be turned on or off via the ST10+ or mobile app. Photos can be captured in JPEG or DNG RAW and it is possible to snap photos while recording video.

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 mobile app - available at Google Play and iTunes app stores. The app or ST10+ offer control over resolution, white balance, ISO, and shutter speed. 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. 

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 enables you to control the CGO3-GB camera as well as view a live feed from it, complete with telemetry data overlaid (OSD).

Good value for the price.

Pros: Decent flight time, I routinely get 20 mins. (Some units have less than 10 mins)
The camera gimble is nice. The camera swivels, and it not hard mounted in the body like some units.
The advantage is that you don't have to turn the whole unit.
The auto-follow mode will follow you in elevation changes (up stairs for example).
The controller in intuitive and easy to use. The built in video is nice, doesn't require and external monitor or cell phone to be used as a monitor like some units.
Parts are easy to find, batteries and propellers are available at a large electronics chain store near by.

Cons: Most of these are minor to me. (Still gave 4 eggs)
The product description says...
"As part of the RTF bundle, if features two 5400mAh flight batteries,"
However mine only came with one flight battery, and the parts list only listed one.

Doesn't have folding arms. This is fairly large, it doesn't fold down to a small size.
The "smart" range is pretty limited by default. About 300 feet in any direction, and about 400 feet altitude. (However I find, this usually more than enough for what I'm filming, and this can be over-ridden).
The "follow me" mode doesn't have object avoidance. It will follow you into tree branches.
Doesn't come with a hard case. (Pretty much just a cardboard box, but it works).

Overall Review: Over all I'm happy with it. It is relatively quiet, (can't hear it 30 feet away).
The long battery life is worth the long charge up times.
You can set the controller to "quick or slow" response, I have mine close to the middle, it seems
pretty responsive to me.
