    I've got a Typhoon H+ that has never been crashed, when attempting to use it this week, the camera control isn't working correctly. The camera will visually display, but the controls don't work correctly. Upon turning on, the camera (C23) goes crazy for a few seconds and then emits 2 long, 1 short beeps repeatedly. I found similar beep codes for another model that was a Pitch Encoder magnet issue, but can't verify anywhere for my model. The drone is about 2 years old.

    Two long, one short is the beep code for all Yuneec Cameras as far as I know. For certain it is the Pitch Encoder error code for the C23. And the C23 Pitch encoder magnet is susceptible to the spontaneous degradation associated with those type magnets.
    Let us know if you need assistance.

    Thanks for the help! I've ordered the magnets from ebay and I'm comfortable attempting the repair, but am curious if there is a tear-down guide anywhere that shows where the magnets are in the C23?

    This is the best I can find, but see no mention of the magnets:

    The magnet is mounted on the end of the motor shaft, just under the encoder itself:

    Okay, perfect! That looks simple enough. Thanks again for the help!

    Shipping took quite some time, but I finally got the part and installed it. I would note for any future users, carefully using a heat gun would probably help to pry off the side piece a bit better (Don't get it too hot due to the proximity of the board and parts), but would definitely help loosen the adhesive and not tear up the housing as much.

    Unfortunately the magnet replacement didn't fix it, so I'll try to replace the board next. Hopefully that gets it. The odd thing is, I'm not getting the beep codes anymore, the camera is simply not responding to commands at all (although visually it displays fine).

    You can try rotating the magnet position a little at a time to see if you can get the system to recognize it. Otherwise, it will probably be necessary to send it for repairs at a facility such as Vertigo Drones.
