By January 16, 2018January 25th, 2021No Comments

Right from the color and shiny display to seeing the new Yuneec Typhoon H Plus hovering in front of us, we were very impressed with this drone. The hexacopter design of Yuneec’s Typhoon line has proven very effective and safe in the air, now it is more efficient and powerful.

Most of all, the Typhoon H Plus supports newer modular cameras, for the best possible aerial images possible in a Yuneec drone under $2000. The new controller packs new flight features, with a focus on safety as well as assisting a pilot with their video operations.

Remote sensing for agriculture is a hot topic. For over a decade it has been showing great promise, but unfortunately, it was long held back by price and complexity of use. Ignited by the impressive rise of commercial drones, it is expected to remain on this rapid growth path for at least the coming decade.

UAV based multi- and hyperspectral imaging has the unique ability to pinpoint crop stress, vegetation disease and/or fertilization needs before the human eye can see it, allowing the grower to take measures during the season before it’s too late. Because of this, it is regarded as one of the major industrial development boosts in Agriculture since its mechanization in the 1950s.

Dieter Kuesel, Yuneec Europe’s business developer, said: “ The Yuneec and DB2 partnership has resulted, not only in the release of the next-generation multispectral camera fully integrated, but it has also seriously raised the standard to an entirely new affordable multispectral camera. For the price of 2,350 Euro (excl. VAT), Yuneec will offer one of the most affordable integrated professional multispectral cameras, including Adapt-2-Light irradiance sensor and custom H520 and H520E mount, for drone agriculture.”

Orders are being taken from today on with first deliveries scheduled late October 2020. Coming soon in the US through our channels.
