Unwrapped at CES 2016, Yuneec Typhoon H is a camera drone that is seemingly designed to challenge DJI’s domination in the market, considering its price in relation to features. It can be used to capture 4K videos and comes with several great features, including one that helps it avoid colliding with obstacles.

Unlike its predecessors and most offerings on the market, the Typhoon H comes with six rotors, instead of the typical four. The number of rotors was decided on to ensure your expensive investment does not crash to the ground easily if one or two of the rotors are lost in the air.
You will agree that was really thoughtful of Yuneec. These rotors are attached to the drone with the aid of collapsible fibre arms. Yuneec Typhoon H features retractable landing gear made of carbon fibre to prevent camera obstruction when in the air.
It is more portable with a dimension of 309 x 270 x 255 millimetres when the arms are down and the props taken off.
Camera and Safety Features
Yuneec Typhoon H is fitted with a camera that can rotate a full 360 degrees to capture videos and images. The shooter can be used to record 4K videos and take 12-megapixel still photographs.
The drone maker said it is built to be compatible with extra components, including Intel RealSense camera. The hexacopter comes with the usual safety features that would be expected on high-end offerings, including no-fly zones, geo-fencing and return to home when battery is low.
It boasts a failsafe system to keep it stable and allow it land successfully if a motor knocks off.
A key selling point of Yuneec Typhoon H is its use of a sense-and-avoid technology, which helps it to avoid colliding with objects while in the air. It is able to do this with the aid of an ultrasonic proximity sensor.
The camera drone can be safety flown indoors when GPS is not available, with a sensor module underneath it helping to keep it stable. The Yuneec Typhoon H is provided with an Android-based controller with a 7-inch touch display for accessing the view from the camera, viewing flight information and executing camera controls.
