If you are into filmmaking or photographing, take a look at the Typhoon H from Yuneec. There are some major reasons why the Yuneec Typhoon H is perfect for you. First of all, the Typhoon H drone is a hexacopter. It means that it has six rotors, unlike most other drones that have just four rotors (quadcopters).
The typhoon H uses only just five of its six rotors to fly with, and the last one as a spare. That is in case something happens to any of the rotors while it is being used. In this way, the drone can fly back to its take-off point for repairs.
Secondly, the typhoon H camera is on another level. Its camera is placed on a 3 axis gimbal which enables it to move 360 degrees unlike other copters like the p4. In addition to this, the landing gear has been designed to be able to pull back at the flip of a button.
So it does not disrupt the shots from the camera, and you get clear cut shots.
The Yuneec Typhoon H drone has some more interesting features like the inbuilt obstacle avoidance technology. This technology is an improved version of the normal obstacle avoidance technology which only avoids obstacles it can see. The Typhoon H is equipped with a sonar device that enables it to sense and avoid an obstacle in very dim light or even darkness.
The Yuneec Typhoon H drone is also designed for autopilot flight modes. It has the ability to control its flight on its own. In this way, you can give more attention to controlling the camera. It also has other features like follow mode, orbit and a host of others which makes it outstanding.
The Typhoon H drone has its own remote control which has been devoted to it. It is called the ST16 ground station. This means that you don’t need to have a tablet or an android phone before you can fully enjoy using this device.
This remote control has a lot of capabilities. Apart from all the buttons on the remote which can be used for virtually everything you want, it still has an inbuilt 7-inch touch screen used for displaying information, watching live videos from the camera which has been mounted on the drone and also accessing other functions.
Apart from the ST16, the drone can be connected to another controller.
This enables the user to split the functions of the remote. One of the controllers can be used to control the drone’s flight mode, while the other controls the camera on the drone.
Other things about the Yuneec Typhoon H drone you would like to know include:
