YUNEEC Partners with Leica to Release the Typhoon H3 Drone
YUNEEC has just introduced a new drone, the Typhoon H3 co-engineered with Leica. This new engine features six rotors and boasts an impressive 20MP 4K Leica camera that can capture up to 10-bit YLog footage.
The Typhoon H3 (codename YUNTYH3EU) is YUNEEC’s latest flagship six rotors drone. This sturdy beast weight close to two kilograms with the built-in camera, and can fly for up to 25 minutes. Despite its heavyweight, the aircraft can fly at an incredible speed of 72km/h (44mph). Also, more rotors mean more risks of failure. But if a rotor is damaged or fails, the Typhoon H3 automatically activates a 5-rotor mode to return home safely.
The Typhoon H3 comes with an ION L1 Pro camera engineered in partnership with Leica. This camera features a 1″ CMOS sensor that can take 20MP photos and record 4K videos at up to 60 frames per second. The six rotors aircraft should be quite stable, but the camera is mounted on a 3-axis gimbal for more stability. The lens of ION L1 Pro is a 23mm Leica Elmarit-D glass, with a maximum F/2.8 aperture.
The YUNEEC Typhoon H3 comes as a kit that contains the drone, the camera, the controller, and two batteries. It retails for $2599.00/2399€ and should start shipping by the end of October.
