The six propeller Typhoon H Plus drone is up to 40 percent quieter than its predecessor so you won’t alarm the wildlife, or your neighbors, during your aerial excursions. The camera has been upgraded to provide a 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor capable of recording 4K video at 60p. It’s fronted by a fixed 23mm (equivalent) lens with a 91-degree angle of view. The camera sits on a gimbal that can rotate a full 360-degrees and the landing gear retracts so they’re not accidentally captured by the rotating camera. Low-light performance has also been improved.
Like its predecessor, the Typhoon H Plus features an Intel RealSense 3D camera to map out obstacles in its path (and avoid them, obviously). There are multiple automated flying modes, including Orbit Me, Points of Interest, where the drone orbits an object you select, and Curve Cable Cam, where the drone flies a route you trace out ahead of time using the remote. You’ll enjoy up to 25 minutes of flight time with the H Plus, hitting a top speed of 13.5m/s. The drone ships with an Android-based remote featuring a 7-inch touch display and a 720p video downlink with a range of 1.6km in optimal conditions.
