Yuneec Typhoon H520 and Valet

This year at CES, Yuneec released an orange beauty called the H520 and a great concept drone. The new commercial targeted drone is scheduled to be released around q2 or April, May, or June of this year. Besides its bright new color, they decided to equip the Yuneec Typhoon H520 drone with some new upgraded motors and an interchangeable camera payload system. This Yuneec is geared towards the commercial aspect of cinematography, inspections for oil and gas, real estate, and general photography.Typhoon H520

What’s The Difference, And What’s Similar With This Regular Typhoon H?

The overall hardware and compatibility have been boosted with this model. The frame on this is larger and the motor’s size has also been enhanced to increase stability. On paper, the H520 has an impressive 31 minute flight time, and that’s with the total weight of 1890g. Its battery is a large 6850mAh LiPo.  The six rotors will give the user a peace of mind with its five-rotor fail-safe feature, so this hexacopter can still fly stable with a failing motor. The ascent speed is 5m/s, while the decent speed is rated at 3m/s. The controller is basically the same with its built-in 7-inch screen. Shame that the heavy screen flaring issue has not been solved in a new Typhoon H 520.Typhoon H 520 CES 2017

The Three Cameras

Yes, Yuneec Typhoon H520 can be equipped with a CGO-ET camera. This thermal camera option is great for search and rescue missions, firefighting, solar panel inspections, and other emergency applications. As awesome as this feature is, the representative on the floor did not clarify the range it needed to be in for the thermal camera’s effectiveness. This still gives the drone a great variety of uses, and the interchangeable system will allow an easy swap for different applications. The stock CGO3+ camera can also be found on a Typhoon H, and the third CGO-CI camera option is equipped with a 50mm field of view to provide sharp and high contrast images.CGO3+

What’s The Price For The Yuneec Typhoon H520?

The price for this drone will vary from $2,499 to $4,499, and it will depend on the camera options and Real Sense. Yuneec had a hard time competing with Phantom 4, but now, prices are jumping up to the inspire level. The specs of the “pro” level camera is important because people who are spending $2500+ USD on a drone usually need a high-quality grade shot.

Yuneec’s Future Prototype In The Making!

Yuneec showcased a prototype called the Valet drone. This teaser drone looks like a fossilized Horseshoe Crab, and it’s mainly made for home security, home inspections, and it is projected to even be capable for small package delivery, hence the enclosed rotor system. This concept is Yuneec’s idea for drones in the future. This will be controlled with a phone, and it will have 360-degree obstacle avoidance.
