If you that weren’t able to attend the fantastic CES fair: you’re in luck, because I am here to give you a few sweet details. Among other things, Yuneec announced three of their new drones that would be coming out this year. The HD Racer, Firebird FPV, and the Typhoon H Plus. While all three of them are no doubt great drones, I’d like to focus on the Yuneec HD Racer and tell you what I learned at the CES.
The HD Racer is small enough to fit in the palm of any hand, but small things sometimes really do come with some pretty advantages. Once the HD Racer takes off into the air, the pilot is going to have an amazing experience due to Yuneec’s cutting-edge technology.
Let’s take a look at the Yuneec Firebird HD Racer specs to give you a clear picture of exactly what you’re looking at …
Integrated FPV camera (which is great in my opinion)
Optimized HD video link with low data delay
FPV race quadcopter
Built-in flight stabilization with both beginner and advanced modes (this means the drone is for everyone)
1S 550mAh LiPo battery (your flight time will be around 6 minutes)
Impeller design is very quiet
Flip up mode (comes very handy)
Let’s move on and talk about these interesting specs.
Designed for Beginners and Experienced Pilots alike
What many people like about the Yuneec Firebird HD Racer is the fact that it has been designed for both beginners as well as experienced pilots.
This drone has protected blades, so flying it indoors is safe. There’s also a built-in flight stabilization, which is definitely helpful.
When it comes to drones, I really like the camera feature. This particular Yuneec drone has an HD camera that is capable of filming real time in 1080p or 720p/60. The image is sent straight to your device (Android or iOS), and the latency is reduced enough so that the pilot can fly in immersion.
In addition to being able to connect the drone to your device, this drone will allow you to record and share your “in-air” moments in high resolution 1080p (60fps).
Built-in Flight Stabilization
The built-in flight stabilization has beginner and advanced modes. This way, everyone will be able to fly it, regardless of their skill level.
When the pilot is flying this drone around, they will be able to navigate through almost any obstacle with the all-digital, optimized, low latency HD video downlink. If however for some reason you do run into an obstacle (it happens, unfortunatelly), that is okay, all you have to do is switch to “flip-up” mode, which will make the drone automatically turn upright. The HD Racer would have been great for me in the beginning when I was first starting to fly drones, because I spent a lot of time having to walk over and flip my drone back up to save the misshaps.
All in all, if you’re looking for a drone for yourself, or even as a gift for someone close to you, I believe the Yuneec HD Racer would make a good choice.
It is good for people of all walks of life, both young and old, completelly regardless of their experience with drones. This means that if someone you know is a drone enthusiast and has a ton of them already, it wouldn’t hurt to get this one, and at the same time, you could get it for a child that has absolutely no experience. Mind you, the drone was set to come out during the second half of 2018, but it was well worth the wait. At this time, the only downfall I can find with this drone would be the battery life – the battery only gives you around 6 minutes of flight time, but you can improve that by having multiple batteries to switch out between flights. In the end, this is definitely a drone I would recommend.
