US-based electric aviation specialist Yuneec International has unveiled its plans to enter the commercial drone market with its first product offering.
The H520 sUAS is the company’s first product designed specifically for commercial use. The system six-rotor platform incorporates enterprise-grade cameras and mission planning software for high-end commercial use.
The model is designed to be used for public safety, construction, inspection and video production among other industries.
The H520 sUAS is initially available with the E90 high-resolution camera utilizing a large aperture, one-inch sensor.
Yuneec’s H520 features high visibility hazard orange fuselage and a six-rotor design capable of emergency flight with only five rotors.
All camera payloads are interchangeable and hot-swap capable, offering time-saving convenience for the commercial operator and have a medium focal length, high-resolution camera suited for use in inspections and for broadcast.
Each of Yuneec’s commercial cameras are capable of continuous 360-degree motion, providing an unobstructed view from any angle when paired with the H520’s retractable landing gear.
The model is also capable of a 20-degree up-angle for upward-looking inspections. The H520 comes with the professional-grade Android-based ST16S controller, which has a large 7-inch integrated display and HD 720p video downlink for real-time video reception, and an HDMI uplink for distribution to external monitors.
“Our team of engineers and product managers have conducted extensive field testing to refine the H520 software and create a best-in-class commercial-grade UAV,” said Dr. Michael Jiang, CEO of Yuneec International. “We’re confident operators will discover the H520 is a versatile tool for a variety of enterprise applications thanks to its suite of dependable, reliable and advanced features including DataPilot, Yuneec’s integrated mission planning software.”
