    Newbie to your forum. I just purchased a new H500 Tali and I'm now thinking that I should have researched this drone throughly before purchasing, my bad. I read constant horror stories about this drone on your forum but little praise. I did take the time to read the FAQ getting started thread which I plan on following diligently and I do also have a lot of experience flying fixed wing RC planes so I'm not worried about flying in manual mode.

    So my question is are there users out there that have owned this drone and flown it successfully for a few months?
    If yes is there any chance in flying this drone in GPS mode?

    Thanks

    Thanks Buzztronic, really looking forward to flying her in the coming days. I read through the "read this first" thread, that will come in handy. One question for you have you updated the firmware for the transmitter? If yes is there a firmware update for the Tali?
    Thanks

    There is no TX update. There is a FW update for the Tali, for motor start sync.

    It flys fine if you follow the instructions I provided.

    I have also updated one of mine with a Dual GPS. It makes a huge difference.

    Also do not descend quickly vertically. It suffers from VRX. Always descend with some forward motion.

    Cheers

    P.S. I fly fixed and rotary wing and Multirotors.

    You cant compare manual flight of a fixed wing to that of rotary or multirotor.

    Flying fixed wing you set the throttle for your desired speed and don't change it much. You bank with Aileron and then apply elevator to turn. you may use rudder to coordinate turns.

    Flying rotary wing you are constantly on the throttle, aileron, elevator and rudder. You will find yourself using all 4 stick directions all the time. Multirotor not quite as bad but still very different from fixed wing.

    Flying these will make you a better fixed wing pilot. Enjoy. ;)
