Yuneec Typhoon H Review

This looks like a serious bit of kit.

That’s because it is. The H is the newest addition to the Typhoon drone range. The features on this stealthy-looking aerial shooter will definitely give competitors a run for their money.yuneec-typhoon-h-review

Yeah? What makes it so special?

For starters, the H’s antivibration, gimbal-mounted CG03+ camera can produce smooth 4K video and stunning

12MP stills of your epic views. The drone also has six props for stability, and retractable landing gear for unobstructed 360-degree footage. Most impressive of all is the front-mounted Ultrasound RealSense Sensor, which means the drone can detect – and avoid – in-flight obstacles. Clever, eh?

That controller looks the business.

You bet your ass it does. Whereas many other drones

require a tablet or smartphone to run a dedicated control app, the ST16 Personal Ground Station remote controller features a built-in seven-inch Android touchscreen used for controlling aircraft, gimbal and shoot settings, as well as displaying the 720p video downlink from the drone’s camera.

Hmm, all that technology might stretch my abilities…

Nonsense! The Typhoon has plenty for professionals to sink their teeth into, but multiple automated shoot functions, including Point Of Interest and Curve Cable Cam, fly the drone along pre-plotted flight paths, leaving your hands free to control the camera and capture that winning shot. Honestly, you’ll be amazed by the results.

Whether you’re on a bike, a board or a bungee, the Typhoon’s automated Follow Me/Watch Me modes keep the camera zeroed in on you, the star of the show.

If one of the Typhoon’s six motors were to fail, the drone would switch to a five-motor mode, keeping it safely airborne rather than dropping like a brick
