Yuneec Typhoon H Plus camera drone lands in UK
Meet the next generation of Typhoon H. The hexacopter is even more powerful than before and boasts an all new flight controller, based on the PX4 platform.
Boasting almost 30 minutes of flight time and a transmission range of up to 1.6km, the Typhoon H Plus camera drone from Yuneec has some great specs. I met the Typhoon H in the plastic recently, as it were, and it certainly looks the part too.

The drone can climb at a rate of 4 metres per second and hit a top speed of 13.5 m/s. The remote runs on Android and has connections for HDMI and USB. Naturally, if you are looking for a pro camera drone, image and video capture will be at the top of your list.
The new Typhoon H is loaded with a new C23 one-inch sensor camera. You are able to grab 20 megapixel stills and 4K video at 60fps. Additionally, the C23 camera boasts improved low-light performance over previous models.
The upgraded camera features larger aperture optics and an extended ISO range (100-6400). Also, the sensor provides exceptional dynamic range and improved signal-to-noise ratio. The camera is integrated with a 3-axis gimbal capable of continuous rotation for 360° image capture.
Power of six
Six rotors endows the Typhoon H Plus with unparalleled safety and stability. The design also allows you to reliably capture ultra-stable footage even in windy conditions. We are told that this is one of the quietest drones in its class, with a 40% reduction in noise from previous models. In the event of motor failure, the six rotor design enables the Typhoon H Plus to remain in flight with only five motors and land safely.
There are those moments in every drone pilot’s career when we misjudge on obstacle. Thankfully, this flying machine is capable of detecting obstacles and intelligently navigating around them. This is because the Typhoon H Plus packs Intel RealSense Technology. This gives you the freedom to explore new creative options. The sophisticated collision avoidance system utilises Intel’s RealSense R200 camera with Intel Atom to build a 3D model of the world while the drone is in flight.
The ST16S Ground Station is an integrated transmitter, receiver and Android platform that gives you full control over Typhoon H Plus. This enables you to easily program autonomous flight and capture stunning photos and videos.
The large 7-inch integrated screen displays real-time footage of your flight, eliminating the need for an external device. Adjust manual camera settings, access flight telemetry and browse the internet all from the smart controller. For security, the Typhoon H Plus doesn’t transfer data to an external server.
The Typhoon H Plus is equipped with several auto flight modes:
Typhoon H Plus flies a circular path around you, keeping the camera trained on you the whole time.
Select a subject and Typhoon H Plus will orbit that subject autonomously.
Typhoon H Plus will go up and out, as far as 150ft, and capture the perfect aerial selfie.
Curve cable cam
Program an route to fly along. Typhoon H Plus will fly between pre-set coordinates while independently controlling camera position.

Simply switch to Home Mode and Typhoon H Plus will return and land within 8 meters of you.
