New foldable drone with Leica camera

Yuneec Typhoon with Leica 1” 20MP camera and 4K 60fps video recording is a new drone from Yuneec with an excellent price-performance ratio.


Typhoon has partnered with Leica to introduce the new H3 model drone equipped with the brand new Ion L1 Pro Leica camera on a 3-axis gimbal. The camera is equipped with a 1 ” matrix with a resolution of 20 mp and the ability to shoot video with a resolution of 4K 60 frames per second (h264 or 4K h265 – 30fps)


Thanks to this step, YUNEEC even surpassed DJI in video quality at the level of consumer models, as the Phantom 4 Pro, which could shoot 20MP photos and 4K 60fps video, is no longer produced and the Mavic 2 Pro, despite having a 20MP 1″ sensor, Capable of shooting only 4K at 30fps.

In addition to the camera, the new H3 has almost no difference from the Typhoon H +, but it also has a different battery. Autopilot based on PX4, takeoff weight including camera is 2kg. The drone is collapsible and quite compact, the propellers are quick-detachable for easy transportation. In fact, the entire drone and accessories can be carried in a carry-on backpack (optional). A protective case is also available as an option. The standard set includes 2 high-performance batteries, each of which provides a flight time of at least 25 minutes.


The remote control is equipped with a 7” touchscreen that displays the image from the camera in 720p (hd) resolution, as well as telemetry and other flight and shooting parameters. The image from the remote control can be displayed on the monitor through the HDMI port built into the remote control. The transmission range is up to 1.6 km in CE mode (FCC – 2 km), it is also possible to use a second ST16S operator console (sold separately)
