Yuneec Typhoon H520 Hexacopter with ST16S Ground Station and 2x Batteries (No Camera)

Business Class Drone

The H520 is a Hexacopter with long flight times, safety and flexibility, developed for law enforcement, security, construction, surveying, broadcasting and mapping applications.

It's rugged design and reliable precision compass provides a stable and precise flight envelope and numerous safety features make the H520 the ultimate copter for commercial and professional operators.

The 6 rotor Hex system allows for precision flight even in high wind environments and ensures the H520 will stay airborne and land safely even if one rotor fails.  The powerful U-Blox processor determines the precise position of the H520 using GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO satellite systems.  Thanks to its high-capacity, high-voltage battery and efficient engines, the H520 can remain in the air for up to 28 minutes.

The included DataPilot software on the ST16S allows you to schedule, store and modify missions at any time.  You can decide whether you want to do this on site or at the office.  Thanks to the offline map cache, you can also work out in the field without internet access.

In order to be able to monitor events or accidents from a stationary viewpoint over a long period of time, it is now possible to power the H520 indefinitely via a tethering system (available separately).  The operator is able to share the HD video feed from the H520 to additional monitors/outlets via the HDMI output on the ST16S.  Using the HDMI output the operator is able to set-up mobile service centers, or the live signal can be used to TV productions.

The H520 can be equipped with three different, hot-swap capable camera options, making it adaptable to a wide range of applications.  The weight of the H520 mounted with any 3 of the available cameras is less than 2kg.  With fully retracting landing gear and the unlimited rotation gimbal-cameras, you have an unobstructed 360° view ensuring you capture every detail with ease.

ST16S Ground Station and DataPilot™

The new Android-based ST16S is equipped with a powerful Intel quadcore processor and has sufficient processing power for the new included high-performance flight apps.  The low-glare 7" LCD display with improved touchscreen ensures accurate, intuitive control of the H520 and shows you all flight information as well as the live video feed from your camera in 720p HD.  The ST16S Ground Station also has an HDMI output, supporting the use of additional monitors without compromising image quality.

The included DataPilot app is a complete software solution for planning waypoints and survey missions.  The app is fully integrated into the hardware and software of the H520.  The DataPilot software system enables users to efficiently and consistently create othomaps, 3D scans, crop data imagery or cinematic movement for repeatable, re-callable surveys, construction measurement, BIM components, perimeter security, accident scene reconstruction, forensic captures, orthomosaic, photo-stitching are generated with precision and efficiency via the DataPilot interface.  Mission/flights may be stored for later recall/reflight or planned off-site and transported to the control system via email, thumbdrive or Micro-SD card.  DataPilot auto-generates survey paths with user-defined overlap/sidelap and cross-hatching for precision 3D or large format image output.  Users may define a survey resolution via altitude or inch-per-pixel decisions, providing a platform that is capable of flight even in low altitude scenarios.  DataPilot also allows for storage/caching of maps from many map providers for access in areas with no internet connectivity and provides tools for precise waypoint placement even in areas where no updated maps are available.

Software Development Kit (SDK)

The SDK provides a wide range of interfaces for programming the H520, enabling users to develop individual apps for the H520 and to implement application-specific functionality.  The H520 can thus be adapted to specific user needs for optimal results.

Data Transfer/Telemetry

Real-time access to telemetry data such as GPS position, speed, flight status, altitude and battery capacity
Remote media access makes it possible to download photos and videos from the drone without removing the Micro-SD memory card
Remote logging allows access to the flight logs in real-time via the SDK
720p HD live video feed via RTSP

Flight Control

Manual Mode - Control the H520 with the ST16S
Virtual Remote - The pilot can virtually control the H520 via mobile device screen
Mission Mode - A flight plan can be uploaded from the mobile device to the H520 by entered waypoints and the drone will fly autonomously

Gimbal Control

3-Axis camera stabilisation
360° continuous camera rotation
Remote tilt and yaw control

Camera (optional)

  • Record videos and take still photos
  • Video and photo control functions such as aperture, shutter, ISO and white balance.
  • Set image settings such as image size, format and resolution
  • Set video settings such as resolution, format and frame rate
  • Access to Micro-SD memory card, remaining capacity, data rate and formatting options

E90 Camera (optional)

The E90 is a 360° unlimited rotation wide-angle camera designed for high-quality shots.  the E90 utilises a high aperture 1-inch CMOS sensor that is capable of capturing 20MP still images and 4K video at 100Mbps at 60 frames per second.  With a 90° FOV and a mechanical shutter, the E90 is capable of producing industry leading aerial imagery and video.  The sensor provides exceptional dynamic range and improved signal-to-noise ratio.

The E90 was designed for professional film and photo production alongside 2D / 3D mapping

E90 Key Features-

  • 20MP resolution
  • 1" CMOS sensor
  • 4K resolution at 60 frames per second
  • Digital live video feed transmission in 720p HD
  • Histogram support for professional exposure control
  • Continuous 360° gimbal rotation for perfect image stabilisation with panoramic images
  • Remote camera control with the ST16S

E50 Camera (optional)

The E50 camera is fitted with a lens that approximately corresponds to a 40mm fixed focal length lens and is particularly suitable for aerial inspection work.  In contrast to most other drone cameras which are usually wide-angle, the E50 has a comparatively long focal length which ensures that the pilot can hold the H520 at a safe distance from the object being inspected.  Thanks to its longer focal range, the E50 is also ideally suited for close-up film settings.  The high quality 10-piece glass lens provides a perfect image with resolutions of upto 4K at 30 frames per second.

The E50 was designed specifically for Inspection work and film production.

E50 Key Features:-

  • Lens corresponds to 40mm focal length
  • Histogram support for professional exposure control
  • Continuous 360° gimbal rotation for perfect stabilisation with panoramic images
  • Remote camera control with the ST16S
  • Digital live video feed transmission in 720p HD

CGO-ET Camera (optional)

The CGO-ET camera is a dual-sensor thermal imaging and low-light camera.  The thermal imaging camera is able to display user-adjustable relative temperature differences and the ultra-sensitive low-light camera can capture high quality shots even in low light conditions.  Both video feeds are streamed live to the ST16S transmitter providing control of camera settings which can be viewed picture-in-picture or superimposed.

The CGO-ET was designed specifically for property construction and inspection, photovoltaic system inspection, agriculture and forestry, firefighting, police and customs applications and search and rescue operations.

CGO-ET Key Features:-

  • Infrared and 1080P low-light images can be combined and recorded
  • Temperature measurement and display
  • Different colour spectra allow for effective visualisation of heat sources
  • Adjustable temperature detection for focusing on relevant areas
