The Yuneec H520: Yuneec’s first commercial drone is here

Yuneec’s H520 is finally here.

The commercial-focused drone, which starts at $1,999 and can cost up to $4,699, was announced back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It looks very much like the Typhoon H drone, but with two key noticeable differences (among many other less noticeable differences): it’s bright orange and slightly larger.

Like the Typhoon H, it has a 360-degree, 3-axis gimbal with retractable landing gear. Camera options include the CGOET dual thermal RGB camera, E50 seven-element inspection-ready camera and E90.

This drone also deviates from the Typhoon H in terms of its modular design. The drone offers multiple payload options, including a range of cameras, such as a high-resolution camera or thermal camera. The camera offers a 360 horizontal view and also is capable of a 20-degree up-angle for upward-looking inspections.

The H520’s camera options include:

  • The E50 camera: a medium focal length, high-resolution camera
  • The E90 camera: a wide-angle, high-resolution camera with a 20-megapixel one-inch Sony Exmor sensor and the Ambarella H2 high-speed image-processing chip
  • The CGOET dual thermal-RGB camera: the industry’s first combined thermal and residual light camera with integrated gimbal

The new Yuneec H520 drone is also covered under the company’s YES! optional extended service package.

Stay tuned for a complete review  coming soon.
