Yuneec Typhoon H Review – Enter the Hexacopter

When you talk about quadcopters, then the most recommendations that you’re going to get from people would be DJI; however, if you’re looking for a drone that has more than 4 rotors, then you might want to check out the Yuneec Typhoon H. This is a hexacopter, which means it has 6 rotors instead of the traditional 4. Furthermore, this unit actually needs just five rotors functioning to stay afloat. Hence, if one of those konks out mid-flight, then you won’t have to worry picking up the pieces of an expensive pile of tech on the ground. This particular drone also comes with retractable rotor arms, so that you can cut down its size for easy transport. Speaking of transport, it even comes with its very own transport case, which is an added bonus.

You Get 6 Rotors on the Yuneec Typhoon H Instead of the Usual 4

The Yuneec Typhoon H lacks an integrated camera flight system, in which are commonly found in quadcopters as there are aimed at professional filmmakers. With a drone that has 4 rotors, it will allow the pilot to use the a camera to both navigate and capture aerial footage. With a hexacopter, however, it makes for a more consumer-friendly approach.

The Typhoon H is bundled with a video camera that has the capability of shooting 4K UHD videos at 30-frames-per-second. If you want to shoot at 60-frames-per-second, you can opt for a more modest 1080p resolution when taking videos. The camera on the hexacopter can also shoot 12-megapixel still images. Even though you can fly the device with just one controller, you can also pair it with a second one as well. Therefore, what you can do is to attach a gimbal with another camera on the unit. With two controllers, one person can navigate the drone while the other will be able to control the camera to shoot the footage.

Because of its ability to have two pilots instead of one, the Yuneec Typhoon H is ultimately placed well above and beyond many of its 4-rotored competitors, even those found in the DJI Phantom product line. It is even packed with other impressive features as well. For starters, the camera is already mounted on a 3-axis gimbal which allows videographers to take advantage of 360-degree pans. It even has retractable landing gear, a good array of autonomous flight modes, and a sonar-based object avoidance system. This makes for an overall impressive photography and videography platform.
