Yuneec International Announces Pricing and Availability of Highly Anticipated Typhoon H
The Award-Winning Typhoon H Offers Professional Capabilities at an Unprecedented Price
UK, Barnet (March 15th, 2016) — Yuneec International, the world leader in electric aviation, has announced that its award-winning Typhoon H is available for pre-order starting today. First customer deliveries will begin in three weeks.
Originally unveiled at CES 2016, where it won numerous top awards, Typhoon H redefines the enthusiast drone. Pricing of the initial 'Advanced' system is set at the highly competitive RRP of £1099.00. Also, for a limited time, the Typhoon H Advanced is being offered with a free Wizard controller, enabling team operation and GPS tracking of a subject.
“We’re excited to bring our game-changing Typhoon H to market, opening access to creative possibilities previously only available in expensive professional platforms. Now, anyone can capture incredible aerial footage like never before,” said Yu Tian, chief executive officer of Yuneec International. “It’s our most advanced consumer drone ever, setting a new standard in capability and value, while being ready, easy and safe to fly.”
An all-new six-rotor airframe provides a solid platform for the full 3-axis, 360-degree unlimited rotation gimbal and the new CGO3+ camera. In addition, the landing gear retracts during flight allowing unobstructed panning for breathtaking 4K videos and 12 megapixel stills. The Typhoon H also adds new flight and image capture modes including Point of Interest, Orbit, Curved Cable and Journey. Innovative new safety features includes ultrasonic proximity detection to prevent collisions with obstacles and a redundancy failsafe system allowing Typhoon H to remain stable and land if a motor should fail.
An additional benefit is the compact and user friendly design. Quick-disconnect propellers allow speedy installation and removal and each rotor arm quickly folds down from its flight position, at the press of a button, for easy and compact transportation. Carbon fiber is used in key areas to decrease weight while increasing durability.
Typhoon H comes with the professional quality Android-based ST16 controller, which has an large in-built 7-inch HD LCD display and HD 720p video downlink for stunning real-time video reception. An HDMI output allows external monitors and VR goggles to be used to monitor video. Available separately, the ST12 or Wizard controller can additionally bind to the Typhoon H for Team Mode, which allows one controller to operate Typhoon H and the other to operate the camera. With ST16 and ST12 in Team mode both can view the downlink video simultaneously.
With its ability to add mission-specific modules, Typhoon H is the next generation compact platform for enthusiasts and professionals. To be announced within the next 30 days is an Intel® RealSense™ Technology module, which uses advanced computer vision processing to enable Typhoon H to dynamically alter course as it encounters obstacles, such as small as tree branches, while the camera continues to track the subject. Future add on modules will also include specialized gimbal cameras which can be easily interchanged on the go.
The Typhoon H builds on established Typhoon family features such as Geo-fencing, Variable Control Response, Dynamic Return Home, Low-Battery Return Home and No Fly zones.
