Drone Crash Whats Wrong with the Replacement? Yuneec Typhoon H
So I have recorded and distilled this video to show the key points of the issues without showing you each and every thing that was done to test it (Its super boring). It ultimately took over three months to get a unit that would leave the ground. Turns out it was all crappy software Yuneec made but they subjected many of us to lots of pain in the process.
In this video you will see continued GPS and Compass errors that start right after the motors are started. Prior to this version of the firmware, the compass errors would start as soon as the unit was powered on. Yuneec Customer service always helped out, and after 5 full replacement units and a few replaced parts I did I myself (like the compass) – they all worked exactly the same crappy way until the latest version must updated version 2.x software. Version 30 brought the Toilet Bowl effect back, and I have not tried version 3.01 as the weather here is too cold to fly it within operating parameters.
At the end of the day ALL the issues turned out to be crappy software that took me 3 months of testing to get to the bottom off. Version 3.0 software largely works and reports on version 3.01 are claiming that it works better and fixed some bugs introduced in version 3.0.
Software platform version 3.0 has been stable enough to fly and no crashes with it. Any issues that have caused me concern announce themselves with enough time to land safe. Yuneec may end up with good software in January 2017 when a planned significant upgrade will introduce new features and resolutions to this issues some users have found.
Its important to note that the VAST MAJORITY of users don’t have any issues. Seems to be an significantly isolated group of us.
