Default Yuneec q500 typhoon

Just got around to messing with my Q500. First thing I had to do was get rid of the top white shell. I just don't see white that well on certain days so I got out the flourescent yellow paint. Much better on grey days and low light conditions for me. I'll be using mine a lot to video our 3D and pattern plane designs in flight. I also plan on making some after market parts for this series. After working at one of the worlds busiest hobby shops and watching how these last about 2 min. on the shelves', I think this is going to be one of the most popular "out of the box drones". It's so smooth I'll let my wife fly it and she's only flown an Ominus before. I'll post some more vids as soon as we shoot them. I will probably add some more exterior LED strips for better night time visibility. Shot some quick test vids to see how tilt and piro rates were.

Got some more test video. Nothing epic yet but there is a crashed Taylor Craft on his property. Even gave him a free roof inspection while I was screwing around...

3DownLow,

What brand of paint did you use? I just bought my Q500 two days ago ( LOVE IT!!!) and I agree, on a overcast day I had a hard time keeping track of it. I would like to paint mine too. Did you just paint over top of the plastic or did you have to sand it down?
