The product description on BuyDig states: "Typhoon Q500 4K Toy Drone"

... This is NOT a toy but a rather excellent videography platform that's very easy to fly. I've owned my Q500 4K for two years now and love it.

Here's a sample video I quickly took over South Padre on the Texas coast. It was very windy and the only indication you'll have of it is when I flew into a crosswind, which sometimes shows the propeller shadow and a slight jiggle in the shot. This video is completely unedited, save for the soundtrack:

The Wizard Wand is a really cool gizmo that allows the drone to follow you without lugging the big remote around. You can also point to a spot in the sky the drone will fly there. Overall a very nice piece of tech.

Nice video! Agree.....definitely not a toy. It never should have been put in the item description.

How is the range on it ? You ever feel it should be better?

no, mavic has a range of 4 miles, uses ocusync for video transmission, has max speed of 40mph , and is about a quarter the size, even smaller when folded up. I used to fly a H, but returned it because of the range, speed, and size. is a very good craft, but just too big. I prefer my mavic pro and air.

My Q500 flew away when it wouldn't respond to the ground station. Very poor control range. About 500-1000 ft. Not nearly as smart as DJI drones. Stay away.
