Yuneec may have formed in 1999, but they released the ultra lightweight yet incredibly powerful Yuneec Typhoon H Pro drone in 2014. They say that it may be of so good quality that it can rival the likes of DGI Phantom 4 (considered industry leader). It boasts a formidable design complimenting its formidable features. These features may have not have been seen on other drones of this kind and size, for example, it has two more engines than the usual drones being sold in the market. The article takes the readers through its amazing features and functions of this excellent machine:
Functionality and Design:
The Typhoon H is a big machine but for its size, it’s rather lightweight even with many fantastic features added. The use of carbon fiber is visible and well-documented, which no wonder makes this machine a light-weight drone relative to similarly designed drones. Even the landing gear is made from carbon fiber (the pillars to which the actual gears are attached).
It is highly maneuverable and pretty easy to fly because of the features, which will be described in the next section.
The remote controller of a Typhoon H has a built-in Android-powered mini computer/screen, which ends the need for a smartphone with this drone. This added feature also improves the quality of flight and maneuverability of the drone as one can see right at the screen of the remote. This way the drone cannot get lost because you will be able to track it via a GPS system and HUD controls on the screen. It has retractable gears and much of the components of the drone are made of carbon fiber, which makes it ultra light-weight. A slightly higher model of this drone can also bring 4K video recording camera. Its two more engines than the usual two, most drones have and can substitute for other broken engines by automatically adjusting its position on the drone.
Price is much lower than several of the DGI models, but its base price of $1300 is still expensive for an average Joe. This price also makes this one a rich man’s toy but this prices may be sufficient and well regarded for the extra features this machine is packing.
