    Plenty of info online and reviews from users.
    In a nutshell, it's slow and the camera isn't very good.
    It's too big to carry easily and the controller isn't great.
    Basically it's competing with the pre-P3 kind of quadcopter.

    I know this is an old thread, but I flew a Q500 yesterday. Stable, yes. But VERY susceptible to wind! Its like flying a kite in a crosswind! RTH works.. Yes. Integrated video in controller.. dumb mistake! Nimble?? Nope! Flys like an ice cube on a how pan! Slow to react to controls, cheaply made. Poor injection molded plastic parts.. Overall.. I would buy one for $500 maybe for a toy. But its got NOTHING on the P3!

    Flight Test people did a whole youtube episode on it... When I saw it, I got the impression that they were shilling for an unknown and unproven product that isn't even cheaper than the real thing (Phantom line). But it seems that this Yuneec is getting some attention and a little following...
