Yuneec International, one of the world’s most influential high-tech enterprises in electric aviation, announces today the launch of its new Typhoon - H platform. This ground breaking new design falls within the very successful Typhoon range of camera drones and features a hex configuration with six folding arms, quick release props and retractable undercarriage.
The Typhoon H platform includes latest technologies like a smart anti-collision system together with a 4K camera and new advanced 360° gimbal resulting in the Typhoon H being one of the most advanced camera platforms in the market todays.
The key innovative feature of the Typhoon H is the collision avoidance technology based on the 'RealSense' solution from Intel (Option). It combines laser infra-red and ultra-sonic sensor technologies to detect and avoid even moving obstacles which might cross the flight path of the Typhoon H. The Typhoon H will take evasive manoeuvres as needed autonomously. It works perfectly in congested areas offering a carefree follow me function like it has never been seen before.
The RealSense technology by Intel offers several smart functions integrated into the system including CYCLE, Point of interest (POI), Curve Cable Cam (CCC), JOURNEY and Front Ultrasound Sensor function. These functions add to the other proven safety features from Yuneec like Geo-fencing, Dynamic Return home, Low Battery Return Home and No Fly Zones
The Typhoon H comes with the Yuneec ST16 personal ground station, a perfect controller and ground station to both fly and control all the settings on the aircraft, gimbal and camera through an intuitive user interface. The ST16 is equipped with a 7“ Android, colour, touchscreen for easy interaction. The screen displays the downlinked video as well as flight information and telemetry data.
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.
FLIGHT MODES & FEATURES:
Consumers can benefit greatly from the five exclusive TYPHOON H features
CYCLE and POINT OF INTEREST (POI): Ensure the TYPHOON flies around the pilot or any object with the camera frame capturing the centre point all times.
CCURVE CABLE CAM (CCC): When enabled, the TYPHOON H is able to record flight paths and will fly along the pre-set route automatically, empowering you to focus on the camera control during the flight.
JOURNEY: Enables the TYPHOON to shoot aerial selfies of any target. When the Journey function is activated, the TYPHOON will fly away from the pilot first and then fly back, with its camera always fixed on the target to make a fabulous selfie.
FRONT ULTRASOUND SENSOR: Assists the aircraft to detect obstacles in front of the Typhoon H during the flight for better safety and intelligence purposes. Once detected the aircraft avoids a collision and dodges the obstacle.
The airframe of the Typhoon H comes in a hex configuration, with 5 motor flight capability, for maximum safety. The hex configuration also enhances stability and flight performance making Typhoon H an advanced aerial video and photo platform for both skilled and hobby pilots as well as video makers and photographers. The airframe includes more advanced features besides the hex configuration including folding arms and 'quick-lock' props for easy transportation in the included hard backpack. It also features retractable landing gear creating an obstacle free line of sight for the 4K camera. The flight time of the Typhoon H platform while filming is approximately 22 minutes.
CAMERA & GIMBAL:
The Typhoon H comes with the proven 3-axis CGO3+ gimbal camera offering 4K resolution. The gimbal itself can be rotated 360° in any direction and the camera can be pointed wherever needed, capturing silky smooth videos and vivid images as a result of the optimized 115° wide angle fixed focused lens.
The video can be downlinked through the secure 5.8GHz digital video downlink with a real-time 720p HD downlink. The camera is also able to shoot slow motion video at 1080p at 120 frames per second.
Camera settings like video resolution, white balance, light exposure (automatic or manual), ISO and shutter speed can be adjusted remotely from the ground. Photos can be taken while recording a video and the still images are available in RAW (DNG) and JPEG format.
