Camera

Camera:
"Hello friends today I received my new Q500 buy on amazon under the order # 106-9678940-7450657 Order date Apr 5, 2015, I like so much the product but I have a problem with the camera does not work up and down motion capturing photos and recording videos works perfect but does not take up command and down, to fully detail the gimbal me and I realized that has two broken connectors which connect the cables."
_
"On the downside, camera sharpness is not up to that of DJI."
_
"The good news is the problems with the camera and video link should be fairly easy for Yuneec to fix with a firmware upgrade."
_
"The camera and gimble also are not protected like the Q500 and I worry that they might get bumped and broken although I think the camera take better video and pictures by a little bit."
_
"I hate to be one of those guys out there flying a quad while 4-5 even 6 items attached to their transmitters in order to fly and see what they are doing... A cell phone, an antenna, then another antenna, a wifi range extender, etc.... Q500's nice transmitter does all of those things under his shell with nothing sticking out or extending... Just put your battery in, turn it on and fly....Now the camera... As every proprietary camera comes with these quads, the current camera is not an exceptional camera but good enough to give you great looking scenic shots."
_
"Has way better camera, a much better gimbal which gives you unbelievable smooth footage."
_
"I calibrated the compass, the accelerometers and gimbal, Have done 2 short hover flights testing all controls and camera, only thing I notice was in extremely dark filming like at night there were 3 stuck pixels on the camera CMOS, well thats ok never really filming at night anyway."
_
"we only had 2 phones that would see the 5ghz wifi my windows 8.1 nokia(useless no software) and my wifes Galaxy Lite T399, so amazon has the T399 refurbished online for $49 shipped good enough plus can use with other wifi quads I have, even though this is slow and really just a flying ariel platform, the 4-13in props spin fast enough to mame or kill so THIS IS NOT A TOY, so ,I actually find my CX-20 much easier to fly but then again I have flown it 50 plus flights not just 2, the video quality and smoothness is second to none adding the 4k camera coming out would be nice later on, I highly recommend this quad if your into ariel video filming."
_
"If your looking for a great camera platform with ease of flight, and stability - the Q500 is it."
_
"It's the camera that could be better, but if you're good at handling video editing you can make it look really good."

Flying

Flying:
"Its true that you can fly this out of the box but here are some caveats."
_
"My only problem is it will not let you fly within 4 miles of an airport and I live on the outer edge of that 4 miles so I have to go elsewhere to fly it"
_
"Is still has the fly away control problem as of March 2015."

Price

Price:
"I was able to partially fix but told them I needed some inexpensive replacement parts (i. e. a missing screw)."
_
"I believe it would be a great hobby toy but not for someone trying to use it for professional photography not the greatest thing put together the screen was not attached properly and one of the motors quit during test flight too much money for that many problems seems cheap and stiff plastic"
_
"I was able to partially fix but told them I needed some inexpensive replacement parts (i. e. a missing screw)."
_
"There are so many other things I liked better about the Q500, for the money that is was actually a no brainer choice."

"It's the best for the money on the market in its category of drones."
