Yuneec International has announced the availability of its SkyView first-person-view (FPV) headset, which is compatible with the Yuneec Typhoon H and Tornado H920 drones.
The SkyView FPV headset – available for a suggested retail price of $249.99 – offers a built-in, five-inch HD screen that transmits in 720p and includes a 75.5-degree field of view and 16:9 aspect ratio.
While wearing the SkyView headset, pilots will be able to see exactly what the drone sees from its onboard camera. Yuneec notes that the headset features an adjustable headband that can accommodate glasses. Once pilots complete their flight, they can connect SkyView via the HDMI port to play back video, watch movies or play video games.
Yu Tian, CEO of Yuneec, says, “The SkyView FPV Headset elevates the flying experience for Yuneec pilots by literally putting them in the driver’s seat of their drone. While operating the drone, they’ll have more confidence, enhanced perspective and more creative possibilities at their disposal. When not flying, it’s an incredible way for users to immerse themselves in video games and movies.”
