Drones have quickly become a valuable tool for film-makers and photographers as its Obstacle avoidance technology has promised to ease the burden of gaining fresh perspectives on their subjects.
Electric aircraft-maker Yuneec made a lot of news earlier this year with its Typhoon H Drone. It is the most advanced aerial photography and videography platform available in such a compact size. It already has the ability to stop itself before colliding into large objects. With the help of Intel Atom processor module, the drone will map the Typhoon H’s surroundings in 3D, which will be used to autonomously navigate its environment. Additionally, its downward-facing sensors on the module will also help stabilize flight indoors.
Capable of detecting obstacles and intelligently navigating around them this unique drone Technology gives you the freedom to explore new creative options.
Impressive Design with Six Rotors
Driven by customer demand for a design that goes beyond the limitations of a traditional quadcopter, Yuneec Typhoon H Drone is a big improvement on some earlier obstacle avoidance solutions that use sonic sensors to gauge the distance to an object. The Intel RealSense R200 Camera and a quad-core Intel Atom processor combine the drone’s flight to model a 3D environment.
Yuneec Typhoon H has six rotors instead of the four found on the popular quadcopter design. The Typhoon H is much more consumer-friendly as it is bundled with a 4K video camera featuring 12-megapixel stills and opens up the possibility of separate pilot and camera. Thus the result you get is very impressive, with a rock-solid aerial photography platform.
Top-notch Features of Yuneec Typhoon H
- Ultrasonic collision prevention.
- 4K UHD 30fps, HD 1080p 120fps video / 12.4 Megapixel still camera.
- It builds a 3D model of the world, allowing you to focus on the subject without worrying about flying into obstacles.
- It uses GPS to track targets and navigate around obstacles, regardless of any size.
- The ST16 Ground Station with built-in 7-inch touchscreen is an all-inclusive transmitter and receiver gives full control over the flight, allowing users to capture photos and video with great ease.
- Get to view real-time footage in HD 720p on the screen with the integrated digital video downlink.
- Typhoon H flies a circular path around you, keeping the camera trained and will orbit that subject autonomously.
- It will go as far as 150ft, and capture the perfect aerial selfie.
- Each propeller features a button that can be pressed for easier assembling and disassembling.
- Its landing gear retracts out of the way to give you a full, 360° view of the world without any obstruction.
- Each one of the six arms folds down for unparalleled convenience and compact storage.
A Full 360° View of the World
Typhoon H technology builds a 3D model of the world, while navigating through it. It enables the drone to make intelligent choices about creating routes around obstacles. Thus further enhancing the prevention of possible collisions. The 3-axis anti-vibration CGO3+ gimbal camera captures ultra-stable 4K Ultra High Definition video with 360° range of motion.
Price & Availability
Yuneec has priced the Typhoon H Pro at US$1,899 and says a separate Intel RealSense module that can be fitted to the drone will be released in the near future.
Yuneec Typhoon H is expected to ship by the end of July and includes the drone and Intel module, with a built-in 7-inch touchscreen, two batteries, extra propellers and a custom backpack.
The demo of Real sense capabilities was one of the most impressive things we saw at the launch, and if you plan to use the drone’s follow and tracking features a lot, then buying Yuneec Typhoon H drone is vital. It’s clearly far more sophisticated than anything else on the market at such a reasonable price. Firstly, spend some time to master its full capabilities and you’ll never want to go back to other models again.
