Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very flexible camera movement
The camera is mounted on a 3-axis gimbal which not only makes taking very steady captures easy, but also allows the camera to swivel 360 degrees. In addition, the landing gear retracts, so it doesn’t get in the way of your panning shots. The camera itself is on par with those found on other drones in this price range.
Pro Can be operated by two people at once
You can buy a second, smaller controller (with no screen) and have a second person controlling certain drone functions. For example, you can use it while doing certain activities in Follow Me mode. Alternatively, you can use it as a separate flying controller, while the other person controls the camera, essentially dividing the tasks of flying and filming/shooting.
Pro Remote doesn’t need an additional smartphone or tablet
While many drones come with a remote that requires a smartphone or tablet to monitor flying data and view live images, the Typhoon H doesn't need this: it comes with a remote with a built-in display. It’s an HD touchscreen display that allows you to change settings and see what you are filming in real time.
Pro Obstacle avoidance system that works even in low light
This drone has a sonar-based obstacle avoidance system, meaning it works well even in poor light conditions.
