Is this one you can actually fly? Not one of those that can't hover and takes off and you'll never see it again

Yes.

The Typhoon H isn't a bad drone by any stretch, but I'd still save a little more and go with the DJI Mavic Pro versus one. It IS, however, a good price versus the DJI Spark.

Anyone have an opinion of it's worth the extra $200 for the Pro with RealSense?

NM. I kind of answered my own question. The Pro comes with a case, an extra battery, and the Wizard. Buying each of those for the standard H would put you over the 200....

Sure, America should step up and adopt the metric system. However, since that hasn't happened yet, could we please see specs listed in the American system of ounces, pounds, inches and so forth?

Plus it also comes with RealSense obstacle avoidance, which comes in handy.

Has same features and accessories as DJI mavic Air bundle but $400 cheaper and doesn't require your phone. Larger yes but the arms fold up. I think I'm typing this to convince myself more than anyone

The Yuneec customer service sucks so if you buy any of their products beware and buy the product insurance if available you may need it.

yes definitely worth it depending on your flying skills. if you never flew a drone before, you may definitely wanna have it.

for the points where you dont wanna interact with but still want it to follow and film you, it will need it to avoid obstacles around unless you are only gonna fly it in an open field or land.

I have been owning over 2 years, recently got 2018 model, which has more improved software, wifi and gps connectivity along with better intel software for the realsense avoidance.

I have used this drone and the yuneec q500 before moving into the drone inspection industry. This drone is GREAT for the price. We still use this on videography calls/photography sessions; and now that the government is restricting the DJI when doing industry stuff we lean more toward this for pictures and video. Check this link that Yuneec did for their video contest

That's really cool. So, new to drones - do you have a real time view of what you're recording? Or just get to see it in the end?

you have the real time video in the base station, which is the controller, is also an android tablet with Yuneecs software installed.

You can record, snap pictures and all sorts of things.

You can also connect the controller station to a monitor or tv and have streaming of the HD live video at the moment while flying your drone.

you mean like the last drone I got from woot? It was a EHANG GVRS2 Ghostdrone 2.0. Well, actually it took off, hovered, never responded to the controller and came down when the battery was depleted, tried to take off again and crashed (no damage).

Woot provided a full refund.

not one of those. You just need to make sure you follow the guideline.

check to see my review for better details:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1MWOCD6GXTCPJ/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B01HHVLDQO


once you buy it:
full charge the batteries on both remote and the drone.

make sure you calibrate the drone in an open space with no mobile phone or any other interference.

after calibration you will be good to go.

before you fly, make sure you have enough GPS/Satellite connection for both drone and the control station.

then you will be good to go.

I have used almost all the features, wizard takes time and practice to get used to it.

station controller has a lot of settings and options, I definitely advise you to practice a lot before you fly it away or take it to the high altitude.

these drones are commercial type of drone that they have lots of features and settings as well they are sensitive. for example of sensitivity, do not fly by or close by high voltage power lines, it will interfere your remote controller and drone connectivity, i have had some experience so just tellin you.


if you crash by that reason, they will not cover or honor the warranty because everything said in the manual you should and shouldn't do.

both drone and controller stations keeps every flight record and mapping track, from coordinates to each command or button you push from drone to control station and control station to drone.

they will see where you had the crash, and they can tell from the coordinates where crash happened if there are power lines, airport or homes or buildings may cause interference.

EHANG GVRS2 pretty bad choice, far behind technology wise and feature wise. they are too plug and play, and fairly new in the drone industry.

Does anyone know if the shadow of the blades are visible in video? I have a quad drone that is as far as I can tell a rebranded yuneec and lost several video gigs because of the shadows in my videos.

The more expensive version seems to be the "pro" model which comes with the upgraded controller. That plus the realsense and second battery makes the $200 upgrade a no-brainer if you are contemplating getting this drone.

The realsense one here has the upgraded ST-16 controller. What is the difference between the pro and the 2018 model you purchased?

EDIT: Never mind, you are talking the Plus with the new camera...

Well, this deal is a couple of days too late for me. Just bought a refurb Autel Robotics X-Star Premium 3 days ago. I would love to get this too as it was on my shortlist of 'to buys', but I can't do it so soon. Doggone you woot!

The Typhoon H is an excellent choice. Extremely stable and can handle the wind much better than other drones. Don't bother with the RealSense. On your fist flight let is sit for about 12 minutes with the motors off so it can finish updating the GPS. Watch Youtube for setting the camera correctly.

The setting the realsense aside... the addition of the upgraded controller, additional battery, bag, and wand is almost worth the $200 difference alone... the realsense is kind of a throw in...

no, no shadows at all. and you can lift and down the landing gear so it won't get in the video.

nope, the new camera H+ model is different, that one really doesn't worth that much in my opinion.

2018 H Pro comes with better software (updated chip) in realsense,
also comes with latest gps module (which connects faster and clouds interfere less),
also the st16+ controller station has 2 wi-fi antenna,
also it comes with double antenna for interchangeable gps antenna,
the wand seems very much responsive.

i haven't opened inside yet, but I have seen previous H Pro models has different chipsets(processor model numbers) than the new ones. I think after some of earlier models failed and refurbishing didn't solve the issues, seems like they went with different chipsets and connection modules to improve the connectivity and quality. (even tho my earlier models are didnt cause any issues for me)

Do I read the description correctly, that this drone is geo-fenced to stay within 91 meters (that's 300 feet!) of the operator? Seems pretty drastic, since there can be perfectly safe & legal scenarios for flying further. Is there any way to turn off the restriction?

I'm sorry, but Yuneec support is not good at all.
I purchased Breeze for my son. On the first flight, I used "Circling me" mode. It circled me half way, then wondered off itself, hitting a wall about 100 feet away. It cracked the prop, landing gear (I think it has antenna), and down sensor screen. I open a service case with Yuneec support, but I had to call/email them every week to get an update. Then they closed the case without letting me know. They say it's user error....
Prior to Breeze, I had P4.
On the other hand, my Phantom 4 which had DOA controller, DJI replace it within one week.

I would go with DJI Mavic Air or P4 (which you can probably find one around $600).

The geo-fence is only applicable when operating in "smart" mode. Flying in "angle" mode and you are limited only by the range of the signals....

Yes, by connecting to the computer and installing its management software, you can adjust it from zero to unlimited. you will have no connection issues in an open field 2 miles vertical height as I have experienced it. But the trouble is, you will end up with explaining what you are trying to do over 400feet to the closest law enforcement. FAA PART 107 limits UAV's to stay under 400feet altitude due to its being national air traffic zone. Depending on your location and the local law, if you interfere with any passenger carrying aircraft, you might be facing felony charges. I am FAA licensed UAV(just for my drones) pilot, in certain places you can only go above 400feet with permissions etc, too much bureaucracy and details on that. If you take the license education courses and pass the exam, you will be also learning all these law and details.

I wouldn't try over 400, you won't be able to see the drone anyways

it still will not let you go over 400 feet, it is not only in smart mode, that also applies that you cannot fly around airports if you are in a mile range. Drone motors will not turn on, and you will see the notice on the controller screen.

why bother CS when you get DOA, retailer is the first hand to handle the replacement.

Yuneec is a major electric powered aircraft manufacturer, they have been out long time compare to DJI but I did hear a lot that Yuneec USA customer service sucks big time. Better buy extended warranty i guess or square trade something.

You missed the most important and expensive item that is included in the PRO version: The Intel RealSense device! (Its worth ALOT of $ sold separately.

After reading the newest reviews on Amazon about Yuneec and what people have had to go through when dealing with their CS department I think I'll pass on this being my first drone.
