Creating New Standards in Aerial Imagery
The Yuneec Typhoon H3 features the new ION L1 Pro camera, which boasts user-defined image mode and focus settings, lossless digital zoom and unrivaled image quality. These new attributes make the ION L1 Pro the camera of choice in its class for all aspects of aerial photography. The technical versatility of the camera offers you a wide range of options – from auto exposure bracketing and semi-automatic image adjustments to wide dynamic range. With the integrated 3-axis gimbal and the drone’s retractable landing gear, the camera is capable of an endless 360° pan rotation for flowing panoramic shots.
Outstanding Image Quality
The components of the Typhoon H3 and the ION L1 Pro are perfectly matched to one another and make it possible to take highly detailed, brilliant pictures from the air with the legendary Leica look. Thanks to the imaging modes optimized and calibrated by Leica, the ION L1 Pro leaves nothing to be desired in terms of vibrancy, contrast or resolution. Specially developed to Leica specifications, the 10-bit Y-Log or DNG profiles offer the best conditions for professional post-production thanks to state-of-the-art workflows (e.g. in ADOBE Lightroom or Photoshop).

Potent Hexacopter System for Optimum Results
The quick-release mechanisms on the Yuneec Typhoon H3 arms let you quickly and easily switch propellers making the H3 ready for use right away. The rotor arms of the Yuneec Typhoon H3 can also be folded away to facilitate transportation. The complete system and its accessories can be transported in a hand luggage-sized backpack or in a protective case (both of which are optionally available). The two HV batteries included in the standard kit are chargeable and rechargeable with each providing a solid 25 minutes of flight time per charge.
The Typhoon H3 is equipped with numerous safety features such as redundant control signal, a Return Home switch, numerous fail-safe functions and an adjustable fence which ensure the drone does not fly beyond a specified radius. If for any reason a rotor is damaged or fails, the Typhoon H3 automatically activates 5-rotor mode so the aircraft can safely land. The built-in ultrasonic sensors allow the drone to detect obstacles and stop in front of them. The battery system has been improved to include an additional safety mechanism that indicates whether the battery is properly engaged with the aircraft.
Secure Your Data
The Yuneec Typhoon H3 is designed as a closed system. Due to the technical design, all communication takes place directly between the drone and camera and the ST16S ground station controller. There is never a detour through a cloud solution. All of the data generated by the Typhoon H3 (photo, video and flight data) belongs exclusively to you at all times and can be saved, deleted or managed by the drone operator without any restrictions.
Intelligent Flight Modes
Intelligent shooting modes allow you to capture impressive aerial images with preset camera flights. With the innovative Curve Cable Cam Mode you can fly the flight path (including camera orientation) in advance on a step-by-step basis. Files can be permanently saved for quick and easy subsequent flights at any time. In Follow Me/Watch Me Mode, the drone follows the pilot and can align the camera to him/her if desired. The classic circular flight (Orbit) and out-and-return flight (Journey) options are of course still available.
Curve Cable Cam Mode
Fly an invisible flight path. The Yuneec Typhoon H3 will fly along the plotted coordinates while the camera remains independently controllable.
The Yuneec Typhoon H3 flies around you in a circular flight path at the desired distance and altitude. The camera always remains oriented toward you.
Follow Me/Watch Me Modes
In Follow Me mode, the Typhoon H3 moves along with you. If the Watch Me function is activated, the camera always remains oriented toward you.
Depending on the desired setting, the multicopter ascends along a linear path and then automatically returns, for the perfect shot.
ST16S Groundstation Controller
The Yuneec Typhoon H3 comes with the intuitive and easy-to-use Android-based remote control which gives you full control over the copter and camera. With a 7” touchscreen display built in to the ST16S remote control that shows the live camera image in 720p (HD), your subject is immediately in the viewfinder. You can also view real-time telemetry data and arrange your camera settings. The live image of the camera can also be transferred to an external monitor as desired via an HDMI port on the remote control. The image transmission distance reaches up to 1.6 km. You and a second pilot can use the Team Mode function to control the copter and camera separately, allowing you to concentrate fully as the photographer or videographer on capturing your images. All you require for this is a second ST16S remote control (sold separately).
With a reliable PX4-based flight controller, the Yuneec Typhoon H3 isn’t just powerful, it’s extremely efficient. The system has been optimized to consume less energy without sacrificing any of its performance levels. The result is a potent, reliable, quiet and extremely precise hexacopter system.
