Yuneec International, the world leader in electric aviation, has announced that its award-winning Typhoon H is available for pre-order starting today.
First customer deliveries will begin in two weeks. Originally unveiled at CES 2016, where it won numerous top
awards, Typhoon H redeﬁnes the enthusiast drone.
Pricing is set at a highly competitive suggested retail price
of 1399.- EUR Also, for a limited time, Typhoon H is being offered with a free Wizard controller, enabling team
operation and GPS tracking of a subject.
“We’re excited to bring our game-changing Typhoon H to market, opening access to creative possibilities previously
only available in expensive professional platforms.
Now, anyone can capture incredible aerial footage like
said Yu Tian, chief executive ofﬁcer of Yuneec International.
“It’s our most advanced consumer
drone ever, setting a new standard in capability and value, while being ready, easy and safe to ﬂy.”
An all-new six-rotor airframe provides a solid platform for the full 3-axis, 360-degree gimbal, and the new
CGO3+ camera. In addition, the landing gear retracts during ﬂight allowing unobstructed panning for breathtaking
4K videos and 12 megapixel stills.
The Typhoon H also adds new ﬂight and image capture modes including
Point of Interest, Orbit, Curved Cable and Journey. Innovative new safety features include ultrasonic proximity
detection to prevent collisions with obstacles, and a failsafe system allowing Typhoon H to remain stable and
land if a motor should fail.
An additional beneﬁt is the compact and user friendly design. Quick-disconnect propellers allow speedy installation
and removal, and each rotor arm quickly folds down from its ﬂight position for easy and compact transportation.
Carbon ﬁber is used extensively to decrease weight while increasing durability.
Typhoon H comes with the professional quality Android-based ST16 controller, including a large 7-inch
integrated display and HD 720p video downlink for stunning real-time video reception. An HDMI output allows
external monitors and VR goggles to be used to monitor video. Available separately, an ST12 or Wizard controller
can additionally bind to the Typhoon H for Team Mode, which allows one controller to operate Typhoon H
and the other to operate the camera.
With the ability to add mission-speciﬁc modules, Typhoon H is the next generation compact platform for enthusiasts
and professionals. To be announced within the next 30 days is an Intel® RealSense™ Technology module,
which uses advanced computer vision processing to enable Typhoon H to dynamically alter course as it
encounters obstacles as small as tree branches, while enabling the camera to continue tracking the subject.
Future add-ons will also include specialized gimbal cameras which can be easily interchanged on the go.
Typhoon H builds on established Typhoon family features such as Geo-fencing, Variable Control Response,Dynamic Return Home, Low-Battery Return Home and No Fly zone.
