There seems to be some problem in the way that Final Cut Pro X is handling the Typhoon H codec. Our guess is that FCP X doesn't like the way that the version of H.264 codec that Yuneec is using is flagging frames in an oddball way that FCP X doesn't like.
For our goal of maintaining maximum image quality while providing the smoothest editing experience, we will want to transcode the Typhoon H 4K source files into ProRes 422 LT. While there are higher quality versions of ProRes(Learn Apple ProRes File Types), they will only cause necessarily larger files and ProRes 422 LT can handle just slightly more data than we are generating, thus making it a great fit for our use.
