Yuneec reveals H850 RTK hexacopter drone with up to 65 minutes flight time: Digital Photography Review

Drone manufacturer Yuneec recently announced its latest commercial hexacopter drone, the H850-RTK. The drone, which can be outfitted with an array of cameras and accessories, can stay in the air up to 65 minutes. How long depends on factors including payload and weather conditions. All Yuneec H520E payloads are compatible.

Unfolded, the H850-RTK is 440×365×470 mm and it boasts a maximum speed of 72 km/h (44.7 mph). Yuneec also introduced a T-1 smart controller, equipped with a 7-inch display, to power the drone. The H850’s standalone weight is 5800g (12.8 lbs.) while the maximum takeoff weight tops off at 9300g (20.5 lbs.). This means the drone can carry a payload weighing up to 3800g (7.9 lbs.).

Several cameras work with the H850 including the E90x, which boasts a 20MP 1-inch CMOS sensor, the E30Zx with up to 30X optical zoom, and the E20TVx radiometric thermal imager which contains a visual light sensor.

The H850 uses RTK GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, and Galileo for positioning and the range in CE mode is up to 8 km (5 miles). The new controller, mentioned above, runs on Android 10 and has 7-inch display with 1,000 nits of brightness. A full charge gives you up to 7 hours of power.

In light of claims made against DJI, Yuneec says that your data won’t be sent to any external servers.

In light of claims made against DJI, Yuneec says that your data won’t be sent to any external servers. Like its closest competitor, the DJI M300 RTK, the H850 runs on two batteries as well. Where it may have an edge, besides flight time (the M300 can stay in the air up to 55 minutes), is the price.

Available this August, the H850 starts at €7,734.95 ($9204 USD) and includes a carrying case, the remote, a charging station and two smart batteries. The M300, which is a quadcopter, starts at $10000 USD without any other parts or accessories. Finally, Yuneec claims that even if one motor fails on the hexacopter, the aircraft can still be landed safely with 5 still operating.
