Yuneec Typhoon H Review, vs DJI Phantom 4!! (4K)

This is the unique typhoon h and this is the DJI phantom 4 and I am ben from authentic Now most of you know I've been flying drones for many years now and my go-to Platform for capturing amazing aerial cinematic shots is the Phantom series I've had every model since the beginning the Phantom one to Vision plus [three] and now the newest the P4 honestly they just keep getting better and better then I saw the new typhoon h and it's boasting some new features that the phantom 4 doesn't have like retractable landing gear a 360-Degree Camera Gimbal a Built-in video monitor and other stuff all for about [$100] less [I] knew I had to get my hands on one to test it out and compared to my phantom Is this a true competitor [well] keep watching to find out starting with a quick unboxing? The typhoon comes with a ton of different parts and pieces I think it's cool they included some extras that I would expect they normally charge for like a neck strap for the controller a Sunshade or even a car adapter to charge your batteries on the go the foam case it comes in fits everything nicely However, I was kind of disappointed They didn't include a strap or handle to use it as a travel case like my phantom for the foldable arms are nice Definitely a needed feature being a large hexacopter the Carbon fiber makes it lightweight however It is still heavier and bulkier than the Phantom 4 Next up the battery is rated for up to 22 minutes of flight time while the Phantom fours is around 28 minutes however the biggest difference in my opinion is this right here the built-in battery indicator [I] mean seriously the typhoon h batteries don't have this even my cheap old wings [–Lens] scarlet head battery indicators This allows me quick efficient and safe checking of battery levels anytime anywhere This is so basic and on top of all that even the app doesn't show me my battery percentage Just some lame voltage gauge on the [phantom] 4 they not only include all this but it also tells me an estimated flight time Left in the app

This is a huge safety feature that I can't believe younique left out moving on the all in one st 16 controller it comes with a ton of dials and switches to each his own here if you like that verse the simplicity of the Phantom controller the biggest feature is that they included a built-in video monitor? That's actually running Android 44 [kitkat] [on] one hand I like the idea of a built-in screen But it also makes the controller massive much less portable and harder to carry around plus It takes a while for it to simply boot up I do however appreciate they included an HDMI output [built-in] in regards to the flying app I personally well I didn't like it I felt the UI was pretty awful It's a clunky interface and confusing controls overall It's just not well polished

[oh], and another feature They don't have remote playback of my photos and videos It's quite often I need to show my client the footage on location to review the shot with the [phantom] [I] can not only view all the shots I captured from the air But I also can download the shots to my mobile device and share it to the world On the spot having a full Android tablet built in the typhoon easily could have allowed me access to the Google Play store Download my instagram and social Media apps and give me easy [access] to share my aerial drone shots while in the field But no now sure you can manually take out the [microsd] card from the camera [once] you've landed Insert it into the controller and then access your files through the file manager app But not only is this inconvenient and unprofessional to a client Especially if you need to get back in the air to capture more shots back and forth with the SD card It's very inefficient now the best of its features I'd say is the follow me mode I can [raise] the landing gear and have the drone and camera Actively follow me using GPS wherever I go even under trees and in my testing this feature works great Unfortunately object avoidance is not activated in this mode which seems kind of dangerous [I] heard this will be updated with that intel realsense module, but that's an extra [$600] on that note of retractable landing gear It's an easy flip of the switch and this makes the whole Hexacopter look way cooler when flying around I found this feature to be useful when using that [follow] [me] mode for video So the skids weren't in the frame or maybe if you're using a dual operator setup however for me I'm always flying and filming solo, and when I want my best aerial shots, I'm at the controls pointing the camera Straight Forward So it doesn't matter if the legs are up or not the camera that comes with can shoot 4K video resolution Same as the phantom 4 I filmed some side-by-side shots for you to compare personally I think the Phantom 4 video and photos are much better I found the typhoon's camera to be a bit too soft auto white balance was way off in almost all my shots The manual controls over picture profiles and exposure settings were lacking [oh], and take a look at this 1080p 120 FPS footage No way man looks like it was taken with a potato and lastly that wizard wand after [I] finally got it paired with the typhoon age I practice flying around with it using its different modes and all I gotta say is met [I] feel the Magic wand is more of a Gimmick Party trick I mean seriously flying around up and down forward and back just by the Angle of pointing the wand and then that magic point to fly it's totally useless in my opinion Sure having the built-in GPS for follow me mode makes it more compact clip in and go tracking method But besides that feature I really disliked it overall I would never actually use it now

There's a ton of other points I didn't get a touch on but this was supposed to be a quick overview And it's the summary that mainly counts in closing I think the majority of people We just want drones that simply work easy straight out of the box intuitive user Friendly no gimmicky tricks Or useless features no complicated firmware updates or a million color-coded led signals I want to quickly and efficiently Fly with extreme confidence that this thing isn't going to fall [out] of the sky or run into [an] object and allow me to capture amazing aerial photo and video shots Overall the Phantom 4 is so much better at doing all these things and is a much more refined Aerial platform and one final note price is no longer a difference [I] just checked Amazon and saw the phantom 4 is available for Literally the same price $1299 so if I had a friend who [is] can during one or the other I'd highly recommend The Phantom 4 over the typhoon h I'll give you links to everything down in the [description] Thanks so much for [watching] don't forget to hit that subscribe button for more drone videos and until next time let's live off fen tech you
