Yuneec Announces First Drone of the Tornado Series


Yuneec International has launched the Tornado H920 hexacopter and the CGO4 professional gimbal camera.

The Tornado H920, the first release from the company’s Tornado series of drones, features an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber frame, retractable landing gear and folding arms. The aircraft can hold three rechargeable batteries, providing consumers with a flight time of up to 24 minutes (depending on payload).

Additionally, the Tornado H920, with a GPS antenna, has several smart features that ensure safety and ease of use, including return to home, auto landing and a five-motor failsafe mode.

The ST24 personal ground station, a 24-channel all-in-one transmitter, is powered by an Android operating system and features a seven-inch touchscreen that displays telemetry data and a built-in flight simulator.

The Tornado H920 is compatible with a variety of cameras, including the new CGO4 gimbal camera. Specifically developed for the Tornado H920, the CGO4 incorporates a true Panasonic GH4 Micro Four Thirds camera sensor with a 3x optical zoom lens and an integrated 5.8 GHz video link module, housed within a three-axis gimbal system.

The Tornado H920 also pairs with Yuneec’s V18 gimbal-stabilized camera with 18x optical zoom. The aircraft is also compatible with the Panasonic GH4 and Sony A7Rii using the 360-degree, panorama-capable GB603 gimbal.

The ready-to-fly Tornado H920 package includes a travel case, the ST24 personal ground station, Proaction grip for stable ground footage, two batteries and a two-port charger for the suggested retail price of $4,999.99. Camera accessories are sold separately.
