YUNEEC TYPHOON H PRO – Best of CES 2016

The YUNEEC TYPHOON H PRO has come to the market with the RealSense feature in the package. Using that technology, the drone is advertised as being the only drone that you can fly without using a phone. Even so, the drone is a bit more expensive than it should be. So here are some advantages and disadvantages for the Yuneec Typhoon H Pro.

Advantages

  • It has six rotors which give it the power it needs
  • A freely rotating 4k camera
  • The camera is capable of RAW and JPG image capture
  • It comes with a remote control with an integrated display
  • It can still work at a good distance
  • The RealSense obstacle avoidance feature can be useful
  • This drone can be operated by two people

Disadvantages

  • The flight time is not the best at around 19 minutes/flight
  • The RealSens obstacle avoidance feature may not work well at high speeds
  • The controller is pretty big and a bit hard to handle
  • The automatic white balance doesn’t always work well
  • Pretty expensive

General

A thing to note is that you can actually buy the Typhoon H Pro without the RealSense feature and you could save some money by doing that. You will pay around 35% less money if you buy the drone without the RealSense technology. That’s quite a lot of money considering it’s price. The batteries are easy to replace, all you need to do is to slide them into the rear of the aircraft with not effort. So that can be a big plus if you want to replace the batteries fast.

The control distance of this drone is pretty good. You can fly it about 750 meters in a rural area before seeing any kind of interruptions. In a crowded area, around 550 meters will be the limit. So you don’t need to worry that you have went too far or that buildings will interrupt your signal.

The speed of this drone is at around 80 Km/h with the obstacle avoidance feature off. Sadly, when you turn on the RealSense feature, the drone will slow at about 10 Km/h, so that can be a big a disadvantage. Even so, it does bring some advantages if you want to use the RealSens technology.

You can fly the drone in a place filled with obstacles without needing to keep close attention to the drone, so you can get some pretty nice shots if you plan to fly it through this kind of environment. Of course, you should avoid places full of obstacles like a dense forest, because it doesn’t have an avoiding sensor on the top.

Conclusion

4K Camera - TYPHOON H PRO DRONE
The Typhoon H Pro is a decent drone but it is quite expensive. It does offer some interesting features and the 4k camera is also decent. This drone along with the RealSense technology has potential, but there still is a lot of room for improvement on the price, camera, flight and the controller.

If you don’t mind spending some extra money for the drone and the RealSense technology then this can be a good drone for you. If you don’t care that much about the obstacle avoidance technology, then you can ditch the RealSense feature for a lower price for sure. But if you don’t want get the drone for the RealSense technology, then maybe you should search for other choices too. It all depends on your needs and the allocated budget.
