The massive Yuneec Typhoon H is pure aerial video magic
With smarter systems, better materials and powerful cameras we’re gaining access to a world once only available to Estes rocketeers and jet pilots. Nowhere is that more clear than with the Yuneec Typhoon H, a camera platform that is also a drone that is also incredibly fun to fly. First let’s get one thing out of the way: this thing costs $1,300. For the faint-hearted that price is surprisingly high but it is $100 less than DJI’s flagship model. It includes a surprisingly powerful – if confusing – remote control and a full 360-degree 4K camera that is mounted under the drone like a sort of gimbal-powered webcam. The body is made of carbon fiber tubes, and the build is quite solid – one major crash didn’t take out much more than an LED cover on one of the six props. In short, if you’re going to get a drone this is a very strong candidate and can handily match anyone else in the space.
