Fred recently picked up a Yuneec Mantis Q and shares his experience. Fred had some issues when applying the latest firmware - it kept failing. Yuneec couldn't figure out a solution by phone, so Fred sent the Mantis to New York and waited. New York couldn't get it to update and ended up sending it to their California repair office. Fred waited some more - after a few weeks, he received notice that the Mantis was repaired and he would be getting it back. He did - without the firmware upgrade and it still won't upgrade. He re-opened the support ticket and is still waiting for a reply. Needless to say, the Fotobug guys are NOT impressed with Yuneec customer support. Check out the podcast for a complete review!
