    No longer for sale. Ended up returning the drone to the place I had bought it.

    Curious, but what can the Typhoon H do better than my Q500 4K? You might just sell me. How much flight time on this?

    Flight time is up to 25 min; after all the research I have done the mean time is more around 22min depending on use.

    It's funny, I actually started at the Q500 4K then worked my way up.

    Note: this is my 2nd Typhoon H. I was careless with the other one and Best Buy fortunately took back and exchanged the drone for a new one.

    Some main features I have noticed over the Q500 that I had were:

    Speed -
    Typhoon H: Follow me 43MPH / Angle 30MPH

    Q500: 18MPH

    Modes -
    Typhoon H: Orbit Me, Point of Interest, Journey, Curve Cable Cam, Follow / Watch Me, Team Mode, Dynamic Return to Home

    Q500: Watch Me / Follow Me, Return to Home

    Controller -
    Typhoon H: Basically is a 7" Android tablet with a controller interface attached to it, you can live stream through a HDMI out if you're by a monitor or screen, connect to Google Play store and download apps like a phone would, future LTE connection with Intel Atom processor.

    Q500: Just feels like a RC car controller

    Almost identical cameras. The biggest thing is that the Typhoon H's landing gear lifts up. Remember I said Team Mode under modes? If you have the Wizard and the ST16 paired to the drone you can control the drone with the Wizard Remote and the camera controlled with the ST16.

    Portability / Ease of Use -
    I had the carrying case when I had the Q500 so it felt more portable to me. However setting up the drone's props took longer than necessary. The Typhoon H props snap into place. You press a button to release the props after you're done. The H is also just as easy as flying the Q500.

    Distance -
    Typhoon H: Up to 1 mile or 1.6KM

    Q500: 800M

    Obstacle Avoidance -
    Typhoon H: Uses Sonar to detect objects within 5 meters in front of craft (only active when legs on craft are up)

    Q500: Nothing

    Price -
    Me (Typhoon H, almost new in box): $850 + shipping

    Q500 (New in Box): $799.99 + Tax + shipping

    When I took the step up to the Typhoon H it felt like I was actually flying a professional drone. The Q500 had the beginnings of it but the Typhoon H by far is the winner between the two. I was so impressed with the H that I decided to get an even more expensive model of it lol

    PM me if interested.

    Don't forget about the full 360 camera rotation on the H. Or the 6 rotor configuration that will still fly if one fails...

    Good luck and I'm sure you will find a buyer soon. I'm going to have to pass on this thinking my old brain might not make the leap up as quickly as needed for acclimating to the H. And keep us posted on your new real sense version and load a video when you can.

    If not I'll just be able to return it.

    I'll definitely try to keep everyone posted. Currently trying to get my commercial license for drone flying to work alongside fire fighters for my capstone class. It will be interesting to see what happens. If I'm able to post footage of drills with the fire fighters I definitely will!
