The Yuneec Typhoon H Plus Pro contains many useful features like collision avoidance and the ability to consistently shoot at 30FPS. If you’re looking to record, you’ll appreciate the three-axis gimbal too as camera stabilization will be a high priority for you. The best professional drone and best follow me drone usually include these features, so give it a whirl.

Why We Like It – Yuneec Typhoon H Pro

The Yuneec Typhoon H Pro may be a slightly fringe drone compared to more established names like DJI or Freefly, but it still boasts a lot of useful features that make it a great choice for drone enthusiasts. The 30 miles per hour top speed is welcome, and it’s heftiness just means it’s more durable in inclement weather.

Pros
  • Useful Modes Like Collision Avoidance
  • Three-Axis Gimbal
  • Consistently Shoots at 30FPS
Cons
  • Low Battery Life
  • Non-Standard Battery Indicator

Speed/Power

While the Typhoon H Pro isn’t the fastest drone out there, a top speed of 30 miles per hour isn’t exactly grounds for us to deem it slow. But if you are confident in your flying capabilities, try the DJI Inspire 2 for a faster model. The Typhoon H Pro also comes with a lot of useful flight modes like IntelRealsense Technology obstacle avoidance and autonomous flight too. While these modes are on it may slow down, but it’s still far from sluggish.

Range

One of the drawbacks of the Typhoon H Pro is the 19 minute flight time. It’s just a smidge shorter than the average for professional level drones such as this one. Try the DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K Drone for something longer lasting. And while on the subject of batteries, you should know that the entire system isn’t intuitive at all. You get a small battery indicator, such as the one on your phone, but doesn’t display battery percentage, only volts.

Durability

The Typhoon H Pro is a big and heavy machine. At 3.7 pounds, it’s probably the biggest one we’ve seen so far, and this includes the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. But I like these heavy machines as it makes them more durable in less-than-optimal weather conditions. The drone also features a retractable landing gear, twist and lock propellers, and a three-axis gimbal for camera stabilization.

Camera Features

The video feed is stable and can stream up to 720p. The drone uses a CGO3 camera and can record, or capture still images, at 1080p, 1440p, 4K UHD, or 4K DCI. It consistently records at 30fps, which is nice, but also means you won’t be able to gain any frames if you choose to go down from 4K to 1080P. Be sure to consider that before purchasing.

Value

The drone comes with an ST16 Ground Station, powered by Android 4.4.4, which is the real heart of the system. You can completely control the drone from this remote control, and the 7 inch screen is probably a lot bigger than your smartphone touchscreen. But some people prefer their phones, so we’ll let you decide if controlling via the remote is a positive or negative.

Yuneec Typhoon H Pro Wrap Up

If there’s one thing Yuneec should get their act together on it’s streamlining the battery interface to make it more intuitive. Showing battery in volts instead of percentages is just confusing and can land someone in hot water if they don’t know how volts work. Other than that, though, the Typhoon H Pro is excellent for both veterans and newbies alike.
