Drones are multi-rotor airborne devices that can be controlled with the help of a remote control. They are fast becoming one of the most widely used innovations in the world of technology. They can not only be used for the sake of fun, but they can also be used for practices such as racing and photography. Keeping that in mind, there are drones for kids that are usually vibrant but do not come with a lot of features, there are drones for racers that are designed to be agile, and there are drones that photographers and videographers can use for their high-definition visual output.
It is with the last type of drones that we are concerned – drones with high-definition cameras. It goes without saying that these drones are more expensive compared to the other type to compensate for the cost of the camera built into them. It is no wonder that people buying these drones have to put a lot of thought into their purchase. Which drone should they buy? The answer is the one with the best picture quality. Yuneec offers this very quality in its series of drones.
Here, we’ll highlight the qualities of Yuneec drones in order to prove their worth compared to the others in the market.
The Breeze lives up to its name – it is quite light and weighs no more than a pound. Compatible with both iOS and Android, it is easy to set this drone up quickly. The Breeze is a quadcopter, which means that it has four rotors to lift it in the air. The resolution of the images this drone can capture is 13 MP and the resolution of the videos is 720p, which results in the pictures and videos being sharp, clear and of high quality.
The Yuneec drones usually come with five modes of flight that can take different sorts of shots. One of these modes is the ‘follow me mode’ where the drone follows you around according to your location. It makes maneuvering the drone a whole lot easier for rookies.
The Breeze comes with infrared sensors that allow it to stay in a single position no matter where you are. In addition to all of that, this drone has an automatic safety landing feature, which brings the drone to your position (as told by the GPS) easily. This makes it easier on you if you are a rookie when it comes to flying drones. It also has an instant social connectivity option which makes the task of immediately sharing your videos a piece of cake.
At a reasonable price, the Typhoon H is a quadcopter that offers a lot of value packed into a compact design. It has a flight time of nearly 25 minutes and can be maneuvered with and display the aerial view on the ground station. This ground station is an Android platform integrated device and provides live screening to the user in high definition.
The Typhoon H offers a resolution of 12 MP for still images and a video quality of 720p. The ST16 controller offers a video display of 7 inches. It can relay the images over a distance of 1.6 kilometers from your current GPS position.
As with the Breeze, the Typhoon H has five flight modes – Orbit Me, Point of Interest, Journey, Curve Cable Cam and Follow Me. All of these modes, except for Curve Cable Cam and Journey are self-explanatory. Briefly put, Journey is used to capture the best aerial selfies possible and Curve Cable Cam follows the route outlined by the waypoints you have set.
The Typhoon H’s most unique feature is its 360-degree camera, which allows its camera to rotate all around and take the photos you want it to take. It also has an automatic landing system coupled with retractable landing gear and foldable arms. It is integrated with Intel’s RealSense technology. It also has quick release buttons which garner a quick response from the drone.
The Typhoon 4K is another drone in Yuneec’s Typhoon series. It is a drone with one of the best image resolutions available. It captures 12 MP photos and 1080p videos.
This drone can be paired with a steady grip device that can record stable shots. The 3-axis camera allows you to take photos from a 90-degree angle to the horizon. These pictures illustrate what the world would look like if viewed from above.
The flight time of the drone is nearly 25 minutes and it is powered by a Li-Po battery. This battery is extremely light in weight. The Typhoon 4K reportedly offers some of the best features for photography in the market.
Unlike the other drones on this list, the Tornado H920 plus is a hexacopter with eight rotors instead of the usual four. Like the Typhoon H, the H920 Plus has retractable landing gear and folding arms to make it easier to carry it around. Additionally, this drone comes with a Panasonic CGO4 which has a lot of features that other camera drones do not offer.
The Panasonic CGO4 offers 3x optical zoom and a picture resolution of 16 MP. The optical zoom lens is especially useful for viewing objects that the drone cannot physically get near to. Additionally, the retractable landing gear helps you avoid any obstruction in the view.
Like other Yuneec drones, the Tornado H920 Plus offers five flight modes as well as an auto-landing function. It uses the same ST16 controller that the Typhoon H uses. Additionally, you can map the course the drone will follow by setting waypoints for it using Amal or Google Maps.
As you can see for yourself, Yuneec drones are no ordinary drones. They come packed to the brim with a number of handy features that make these drones a convenient buy for many photographers or video makers. They have cameras of some of the best brands attached to their bodies, coupled with a tough and sleek body that is anything but shabbily made. For someone whose fixation is to get high-quality photos from angles they could not reach before, each of these drones is a blessing.
