Yuneec Reveals Typhoon H Plus Drone
Can this "Pro" drone rival DJI's Phantom 4 Pro?
The drone-producing company Yuneec has announced a new addition to its professional line: the Typhoon H Plus. Increasing the sensor resolution from 12 to 20MP and doubling the 4k frame rate from 30 to 60, the company says its new Typhoon H Plus is aimed at the professional drone operator market.
In addition to an improved camera, the Typhoon H Plus has six motors reported as being 40% quieter than typical hex-copters. Boasting sophisticated obstacle-avoidance and tracking sensors that harness both GPS and visual data, it keeps it on track and out of harm's way. The Typhoon H Plus also features (and ships with) a redesigned remote control with an integrated 7" screen. This will display the 720p streaming preview and drone flight data.
Finally, much like the Typhoon H, the H Plus features a 360-degree gimbal, allowing the camera to move independently from the drone's heading. The question remains: will these upgrades be enough to give DJI's popular Phantom 4 Pro marketplace competition?
The Typhoon H Plus will be available for purchase in the first half of 2018 with a price tag of $1,799.00.
