    Hi guys I'll start by saying thanks for having me, site is awesome! Having spent a while lurking I thought it was time to join.

    I've been into model RC cars, planes, helicopters blah blah and long story short I got a typhoon H from Santa (probably get to that later) after attending the drone show with my brother and some of his students.

    I must have watched most of YouTube's content and my mind is quite simply blown- flying these things seems to be the easy part! To say I'm impressed with the tech is an understatement as most of its quite simply over my head!

    Anyway having set up and flown her a few times now I suppose I'd better get online! I had a small crash that managed to dislodge the camera plates but fixed it with no damage- for my brother (who's the drone expert in the family) to put her into a tree! Collecting it from him tomorrow back in one piece...

    I plan to get fully involved in all things Yuneec!

    Picture for attention purposes only

    Well welcome to the forum.
    Seems you had some trouble with the picture you tried to use in your post.
    Simply use the upload a file box and then you have the option of thumb nail or full picture.

    Welcome to the site....... as far as not knowing much about the H, take heart...... 6 months ago we were all in your position. Good news is, there's a lot of info and knowledge to be gained from this and other sites....
    Safe flying!

    Thanks for the comments!

    I won't post a pic of both front props after she met the tree haha. Just as well they come with a few spare!

    Got a little list of spares I'll order later to have in stock, including a full set of props and rubber mounts for the camera plates.

    Can you get the plastic retainer pins on their own? Seen a few people use fishing line instead but that really doesn't appeal...

    Thank you sir!

    I've got a bottom plate and rubbers on the way that come with 2 pins. Id like a few spare as its bound to happen again plus I've found the rubber dampers on their own.

    The spares box begins!

    Hopefully take her out over the weekend as she's back in action now...
