Drones feature sophisticated new technologies that offer great opportunities for aerial viewing for both enthusiasts and commercial enterprises. There are a number of styles of drone aircraft, and one of the most versatile is the Yuneec Q500 Typhoon Quadcopter. Designed to capture both sharp aerial photography and captivating video, this aircraft has numerous features that make it a good choice for both beginners and experienced pilots.
The Yuneec Q500 Typhoon, piloted with traditional joysticks, is equipped with an Android mobile device that has a 5.5-inch touchscreen. You can watch a first-person view (FPV) with the video image from the camera. The image also features superimposed telemetry information to help you pinpoint exactly what you are seeing. In addition, a built-in microphone can easily be turned on or off as you wish.
This smart drone aircraft has a computer with access to a published database of Federal Aviation Administration no-fly areas, such as near airports. In addition, the maximum flight altitude can be locked to further help you meet compliance codes.
The range of included flight modes allows people with all levels of piloting experience to enjoy this drone. Smart mode is designed for beginners and uses GPS to establish a 26-foot safe circle around the pilot. Angle mode is good for experienced pilots who want to take aerial photographs, as it allows for steeper bank and pitch angles. Home mode is a safety feature that can be turned on at any time.
