    Equipped with six rotors, a 360-degree gimbal camera and retractable landing gear at an unprecedented price of $1,799, the Typhoon H is set to provide the latest professional grade features to consumers everywhere.

    The 360-degree gimbal with the new CGO3+ camera allows unlimited panning for breathtaking 4K videos and 12 megapixel stills. The landing gear retracts during flight to seamlessly remove itself from the shot for unobstructed views. New programming features add new flight and image capture modes including Point of Interest, Orbit, Curved Cable and Journey.

    The newest drone in the Typhoon family still meets Yuneec’s standard of being ready, easy and safe to fly. Innovative new safety features include ultrasonic proximity detection to assist in avoiding large obstacles, and a failsafe system which allows Typhoon H to remain stable and land if a motor should fail.

    The Typhoon H comes with the professional quality Android-based ST16 controller, which has a large 7-inch integrated display and HD 720p video downlink for stunning real-time video reception.

    With the ability to add mission-specific modules, the Typhoon H is the next generation platform for enthusiasts and professionals. Planned add-ons include a high performance collision avoidance module based on Intel® RealSense™ Technology and an advanced IR camera module

    The Typhoon H maintains the Typhoon family’s focus on safety with features such as Geo-fencing, Variable Speed Control, Dynamic Return Home, Low-Battery Return Home and FAA No Fly.

    Don't really know what you are trying to say, but the first price that came out was 1800€ so this is much better!

    No need for me to check yuneec.com cause I live in europe and if I order from US and pay taxes it will be even more expensive.

    I think 1399€ is a good price. I'm sure after half a year the price will probably drop.

    Well now, I am a bit confused.
    From the Yuneec add above;

    "Is the Typhoon Q500+ being replaced?
    • No, the Typhoon H sits alongside the Q500 in the Typhoon range,
    with premium features such as six rotor design, 360 camera gimbal
    and expandability. Typhoon Q500 will continue to be the best value
    hi-def and 4K offerings in the marketplace."

    A few weeks ago we were led to believe that the Q500+ was no longer in production and the last of them were on the dealer's shelves now. That was in this forum somewhere. So, does anybody know which is correct?

    They have to have a base line offering. Why would they discontinue the 500?

    I really want the "H". I'm hoping right out of the box (I know realsense won't be available yet), it can at least do what the Phantom 4 can...

    Hi All.
    No Fly Zones – The No Fly Zone feature is a factory preset compliant with the FAA by preventing illegal flight above 400 feet from the ground.

    Does this only apply when i am near a major airport within a certain radius or does this apply permanently wherever i intend to use it?

    I am from Australia so not sure if the drones shipped here will have this applied?

    NFZ are worldwide but may not be accurate as there is no worldwide standard. Different manufacturers use different databases.

    If the NFZ kicks in you can apply to Yuneec Australia for the Firmware without NFZ.

    I feel a court case coming on, I bought and paid for a Typhoon H Pro which apparently includes Intel collision avoidance (Real sense)( confirmed by Yuneec only 2 days ago when I queried) for 1399 which includes the backpack two batteries etc, but I've spoken to Yuneec this morning (see above post). So, go figure who is telling the truth? in this pantomime.

    For the RTH height setting the default is 20m, can I change it to higher, if not when lost signal auto RTH it may hit the buildings or tree

    He's not, he's going to beat his chest and start to claim that he's not getting what he was promised. Yuneec has a fallback that he either didn't read or believe. "Specifications subject to change" I always laugh when Keyboard warriors come in chest thumping

    realsense comes this summer and will be an add on module and that's been common knowledge for a few months. right now they have sonar built in and that's all they have been advertising.
