"The applications for the two new copters are many and varied," explains Thomas Schommler, product manager Commercial Drones at Yuneec Europe. "Whether in agriculture, the energy sector, the construction industry, public security or photo and film production, we offer a solution with appropriate camera option to meet a variety of different industry needs." Yuneec has developed the Tornado H920 Plus specifically for professional photographers and filmmakers. With a total of eight different automatic flight modes, the drone helps creative professionals produce the photos and videos they need. Equipped with an innovative 360-degree 3-axis gimbal for smooth filming and the CGO-4 camera, which is the result of close collaboration between Yuneec and Panasonic, the Tornado H920 Plus can take 16-megapixel photos and 4K videos in distortion-free image quality.
The H520 has been developed in particular for demanding commercial and industrial use and is available with three different camera options, which can be configured on a modular basis to meet individual needs. The newly developed 7-element CGO-CI glass lens, which can be angled upwards up to 20 degrees, is a unique film and inspection camera in the multicopter sector. The impressive CGO-ET dual camera, for its part, is particularly suitable for building and industrial plant inspections but can also be used in other sectors such as agriculture, forestry, firefighting and police, search and rescue operations. Equipped with a full HD low-light and thermal imaging camera, images can be viewed separately as a picture-in-picture or as an overlay. If further specializations in industry-specific areas and applications are needed, these can be achieved using Yuneec's Software Developer Kit (SDK) - this will enable third-party suppliers to develop value-adding applications and services for the H520 platform from the second quarter of 2017 onwards. As well as the H520 and H920 Plus commercial multicopters, Yuneec is also at HANNOVER MESSE 2017 to exhibit the high-end Typhoon H copter and Breeze 4K consumer drone.
