First customer deliveries will begin in two weeks. Originally unveiled at CES 2016, where it won numerous top awards, Typhoon H redefines the enthusiast drone.

“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 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 include ultrasonic proximity detection to prevent collisions with obstacles, and a 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 propellors allow speedy installation and removal, and each rotor arm quickly folds down from its flight position for easy and compact transportation. Carbon fiber is used extensively to decrease weight while increasing durability.

Typhoon H comes with the professional quality Android-based ST16 controller, including a large 7-inch integrated 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, an 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 the ability to add mission-specific modules, Typhoon H is the next generation compact platform for enthusiasts and professionals. To be announced within the next 6 weeks is an Intel® RealSense™ Technology module, which uses advanced computer vision processing to enable Typhoon H to dynamically alter course as it encounters obstacles as small as tree branches, while enabling the camera to continue tracking the subject. Future add-ons will also include specialized gimbal cameras which can be easily interchanged on the go.

Typhoon H builds on established Typhoon family features such as Geo-fencing, Variable Control Response, Dynamic Return Home, Low-Battery Return Home and FAA No Fly.

South African National Parks (SANParks) has once again displayed its use of drones

The South African National Parks (SANParks) has once again displayed its use of drones in a night vision aerial support programme to fight wildlife crime, including rhino poaching.

On Sunday night the R16 million pilot projects have been shown off to the media in the Kruger National Park.
Drones, or small remote controlled aircraft, take visuals of suspected poachers and send them to a control centre.

Snake Eagle Thinking Path

The CEO of UAV Drone Solutions, which controls the aircraft, Otto Werdmuller von Eigg, says the system sends GPS signals to rangers.

“We are enabling the rangers to have an ability airtime which they have never had before, we are giving them an aerial support at night. We are able to allow the rangers to walk safely at night and to we keep them away from dangerous animals,” says von Eigg.

He says they can guide rangers in onto the poachers if we identify the GPS coordinates is remote controlled.
“So we can fly, we set the drone on the cruise and we then have a look. We can pan the camera up and down and if we found something interesting we can put the aircraft into the loiter,” he adds.
