The Yuneec Q500 Typhoon is an awesome new player in the quadcopter market. It is meant to compete with the DJI Phantom and is a good deal bigger than the phantom. This bundle comes with the aircraft, a 1080P HD camera, a CGO2-GB 3 axis precision gimbal, the ST10 personal ground station, 2 batteries, a charger and an 8GB micro SD card. This is literally everything you need to start flying and shooting right out of the box. It has plenty of accessories that you can also check out. See the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4k review here.
The ST10 personal ground station is a 10-channel 2.4GHz RC transmitter that supports a 5.8GHz video downlink that delivers streaming video to the built-in screen of the transmitter.
While this Q500 offers a superior flying experience, what is really awesome about it is the quality of the video and pictures that are possible with this camera. It has 12 megapixels and 1080p/60FPS for teh video. The 3 axis gimbal keeps it perfectly still. Awesome drone!
