Yuneec announces availability of its Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense



Yuneec International has announced the availability of its Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense.

Described as Yuneec's “most powerful consumer product,” the Typhoon H Plus UAS is optimized for photographers, creative professionals and small UAS service providers, thanks to being equipped with a professional grade one-inch sensor, an all-new hex airframe and intelligent obstacle navigation.

The Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense includes professional image quality that is enjoyable for photographers of any skill level, as it includes a “high aperture one-inch sensor camera capable of 20 megapixel stills and 4K resolution video at 60 frames per second.”

The new model also features an improved low-light performance, thanks to “larger aperture optics and extended ISO range.” It also comes standard with a “continuous rotation gimbal combined with retractable landing gear” that provides seamless 360-degree unobstructed views.

Various flight and image capturing modes are included in the Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense, including Point of Interest, Orbit Me, Curve Cable Cam, Journey Mode, and Team Mode for film and photography teams.

“The H Plus with Intel® RealSense™ was developed to expand creative possibilities and these improvements underscore our commitment to developing industry-leading technologies,” says Michael Jiang, CEO of Yuneec International.

“Virtually every drone pilot has experienced varying flight conditions and faced challenging shot requirements in the field. The hexacopter airframe provides pilots with unrivaled stability, redundancy and allows pilots to effectively capture necessary shots with the improved one-inch sensor.”

The Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense has Yuneec’s all-new, larger, highly stable six rotor hex airframe. Yuneec notes that the H Plus UAS “leads its category in safe, balanced flight and quiet operation,” thanks to a 40 percent reduction in noise from previous hex models, and stable flight in winds up to 30 miles per hour.

Already featuring enhanced stability, the H Plus also has a six-rotor safety failsafe system, allowing it to remain stable and land if a motor should fail.

The Typhoon H Plus is equipped with Intel RealSense Technology, which is a “sophisticated collision avoidance system that detects obstacles and intelligently navigates around them,” Yuneec says. This feature allows UAS pilots to worry less about obstacles, and put more of their focus into their flight path and camera work.

An additional safety feature of the H Plus UAS is “ultrasonic proximity detection” to assist in avoiding large obstacles. This feature is operational when Intel RealSense Technology is inactive.

The Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense is accompanied by a newly redesigned Android-based ST16S controller. This controller includes a large, high brightness seven-inch integrated display and HD 720p video downlink for “stunning real-time video reception.”

Retailing at $1899.99, the Typhoon H Plus with Intel RealSense Technology is available now at, and will be available on July 1 at Best Buy Stores nationwide.
