Brand new for 2018 is the Yuneec Typhoon H Plus.
For those serious about drone photography, the new Typhoon H Plus from Yuneec will definitely be of interest, packing a 1-inch 20MP sensor in its camera, as well as a high aperture lens and the ability to record 4K video at 60fps. Low light performance has been boosted from the original Typhoon H and the drone can manage stable flight in wind speeds up to 30mph.
Automatic obstacle avoidance is built in of course, as you would expect from a drone of this pedigree, while the controller is Android based and has a 720p display so you can see exactly where your drone is heading
The Typhoon H Plus will be available in the first half of 2018 for $1,799.00 USD which makes it slightly higher than some of the offerings from DJI. Whether Yuneec is marketing the Typhoon H Plus against the DJI Inspire 2 ($2,915.59) or the DJI Phantom 4 Pro ($1,379.00) they do face very stiff competition. While DJI continues to go from strength to strength, we have already seen multiple companies drop out of the drone business, Yuneec remains as one of the only other mainstream alternatives available.
