Features of Q500 Typhoon Quadcopter
As we already told you above, this is a high priced product and obviously, it has a ton of features available for you. Whenever we see a lot of features in a quadcopter, we always check before reviewing that how many of those features are actually going to benefit the users and the good news is that most of the features that you will find in Q500 Typhoon quadcopter are awesome. Before we start describing the features, you should know that this is not an entry level quadcopter. The quadcopter will fit those best who are interested in serious areal photography or are way too interested about flying robots. This is a quadcopter that gives direct competition to the DJI Phantom series. Let’s have an in depth look in some of those features:
So the brand Q500 Typhoon wanted to make sure that everyone can get the feel of a flying machine within this same quadcopter. There are three interesting mode in the settings which will allow everyone to taste the copter. The first mode is the smart mode which is for the beginners. It is kind of an auto pilot feature along with options such as follow me, GPS and so on. We actually heard from customers that they use this mode to film themselves while they are running or even proposing to their partners. (interesting, isn’t it?)
The second mode is the angle mode and if you are experienced with quadcopters, you will love it. This option will allow you to do the tilt, flip and all those exciting stunts that you always wanted to do with the quadcopter.
The third mode is the home mode where the quadcopter finds a way to go back to your home and land safely.
The camera that comes with Q500 Typhoon Quadcopter is undoubtedly one of the best ones in any quadcopter. The camera is a 12 mega pixel giant but the number cannot tell you the quality. The camera can record ultra high definition video in 4K (30fps) and in 1080p (120fps). You can also take slow motion videos and believe me, they look amazing. Well wait! You don’t have to believe me. Check on your own from the video:
The Q500 Typhoon Quadcopter users call the controller ‘station’ and there is every reason to call it a station. If you are seriously operating your quadcopter using the controller, you will have a feeling that you are managing a war. The touch system works perfect and there are different channels (up to 10) that the user can use to contact the quadcopter.
The android and IOS app will make sure that you watch everything live right at that moment in your smartphone. You can also take still photos using your mobile phone of the scenes that the quadcopter is seeing.
So in short, there are three broad parts of the controlling system. One is the touch panel, one is the controlling panel which you will use your thumbs to operate and then there is the application in your cellphone. It is a complete package and there is no reason that one will do not love it.
