Yuneec International Co., Ltd is a global leader in developing and manufacturing high tech electric propulsion systems for aircraft, small unmanned aerial systems and personal electric transport systems.
In 2014, Yuneec introduced the world's first ready-to-fly, out-of-the-box drone. The Typhoon Q500 quadcopter features a 1080p camera (60 FPS), a 3-Axis gimbal and 5.8GHz long distance real-time digital video link. The Typhoon Q500 has the world's first Smart Transmitter (the "ST-10 series Ground Station") combining a 2.4GHz radio control transmitter with a 5.8GHz digital video link along with a built-in Android touch screen, creating an easy-to-fly platform perfect for video capture.
In 2015, Yuneec improved the Typhoon by adding a 4K camera and introducing a SteadyGrip that turns the Typhoon into an "Air and Ground Imaging Solution." Innovative features such as Watch Me, Follow Me, and Dynamic Return Home make capturing the perfect video easier than ever before. In August 2015, Intel Capital invested more than $60 million in Yuneec.
