With hundreds of patents filed, Yuneec's core technologies power its manned aircraft as well as its drones and its market leading line of radio-controlled aircraft for the hobby market. Yuneec has over 1800 employees located in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Los Angeles and Hamburg. Yuneec International manufactures over 1 million units a year, sold under OEM/ODM brands as well as the Typhoon and Tornado brand of multi-copters. The Company's achievements include the introduction of the hobby industry's first "Ready to Fly" radio control electric powered airplane and the design and manufacture of the market leading radio-controlled helicopters and micro-copters. In 2014, Yuneec introduced the world's first ready-to-fly, out-of-the-box drone. The Typhoon Q500 quadcopter featured a 1080p camera (60 FPS), a 3-Axis gimbal, and 5.8GHz long distance real-time digital video link. The Typhoon Q500 has the world's first Smart Transmitter (the "ST-10 series Ground Station") combining a 2.4GHz radio control transmitter with a 5.8GHz Digital video link along with a built-in Android touch screen, creating an easy-to-fly platform perfect for video capture. In 2015, Yuneec improved on the Typhoon by adding a 4k camera version, introducing a Steady Grip that turns the Typhoon into an "Air and Ground Imaging Solution", and creating innovative features like Watch Me, making it even easier to capture the perfect video. 2016 saw the release of the Typhoon H, a 4K hexacopter platform providing more stable flight, 360-degree gimbal rotation, and a feature-rich ST-16 transmitter. In 2017, Yuneec entered the commercial market with H520. Yuneec recently received a strategic investment from Intel and strives to expand its US operations. In 2018 Yuneec announced the upcoming release of the Typhoon H Plus, the Firebird FPV, and the HD-Racer.
