It looks like Yuneec’s quadcopters have taken a significant price drop in addition to the recent drops we saw on DJI Phantom 3 drone prices.
The Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon is now $999.99 (was $1299.99) and comes complete with the SteadyGrip handheld gimbal and aluminum carry case.
The Yuneec Q500+ Typhoon 1080/60p model is now $699.99 (was $1099.99). It also ships with the SteadyGrip handheld gimbal and aluminum case.
The Yuneec Typhoon G with the GoPro Gimbal is down to $499.99 (was $899.99).
I’m not sure if these are permanent or will expire soon. I’m a big fan of the Yuneec drones because of the added value you get with the full kit over what DJI offers. I’ve had a Q500 4K on deck for review for a while now and really have nothing but praise for it. I’ll get around to that review soon hopefully, but in the mean time, these are some solid deals on great drones.

B&H has just dropped prices on the DJI Phantom 3.
The Phantom 3 Advanced dropped from $999 to $799.
The Phantom 3 Standard dropped from $699 to $499. That’s really some impressive pricing on such a well-equipped drone – even if it is “only” 1080p.
