Yuneec Typhoon H
Sure, its six propeller-equipped arms will probably garner the most attention. But the Yuneec Typhoon H really distinguishes itself from competitors — including DJI’s latest Phantom 4 — thanks to the implementation of Intel’s RealSense technology, which uses dual Intel cameras and a processor along with sophisticated software to understand its environment and avoid everything in its way including branches, trees, electric pylons, and more. A 4K camera on the end of a 3-axis anti-vibration CGo3+ gimbal captures stable video and 12.4 megapixel shots, and can also be rotated 360 degrees without turning the drone around. A slew of autonomous flight modes follow a person or point of interest (made particularly useful thanks to its object avoidance tech) while retractable landing gear clears the way for the camera and pop-off props install quicker. And coming back to the six rotors: they retract for portability, and only five are necessary for flight, meaning if one fails the drone can still be landed safely.
