Introduction & History
Yuneec is the world leader in electric aviation. Headquarters are in Kunshan, Jiangsu, China. With offices in North America, Europe and Asia, they manufactures over 1 million units a year that are sold under OEM/ODM brands. In 2014, Yuneec introduced the world’s first ready-to-fly, out-of-the-box drone. The Typhoon Q500 quadcopter.
In 2015, Yuneec improved the Typhoon by adding a 4K camera and introducing a SteadyGrip that turns the Typhoon into an “Air and Ground Imaging Solution.” Innovative features such as Watch Me, Follow Me, and Dynamic Return Home make capturing the perfect video easier than ever before.
Awards & Recognition
Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Prize (LEAP)
Yuneec’s two seat electric powered airplane, the E430, features a 48KW electric propulsion system and a carbon fibre composite airframe. Recognizing this achievement, Yuneec International was awarded the Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Prize (LEAP) by Erik Lindbergh, the grandson of Charles A. Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
Typhoon H 4k
Typhoon H offers flight durations of up to 25 minutes while filming with the CGO3+ 4K UHD camera. The Android powered ST16 Ground Station features a 7-inch touchscreen that displays live footage of your flight in HD 720p resolution and enables a wide variety of autonomous flight modes.
One of the newer products, Yuneec Breeze is a small compact drone that can be controlled by your iOS or Android device with the Breeze Cam app and weighs just under 1 pound.
Breeze has optical flow and infrared positioning sensors that allow it to hold its position both indoors and outdoors, making it safe for any occasion. You can fly with ease knowing that Breeze won’t drift – no matter your environment. Additionally, there is an auto-landing and auto return-to-home feature. Therefore, little to no flight experience is necessary.
