The refined main control system now allows pilots to not only save settings but also select various mission task modes: Orbit Me, Point of Interest, Journey, Curve Cable Cam as well as waypoints, providing a bevy of programed options for high-end commercial use. Users can also utilize video and image playback on the ST16 Pro and download aerial maps to cache H920 Plus waypoints.

Yuneec will offer its CGO4 – developed in close cooperation with Panasonic® – with an all-new histogram, 4/3 CMOS Sensor, 3x optical zoom 14-42mm, 16 megapixels and 4k 30FPS/ 100 Mbps video resolution as the H920 Plus core camera. The CGO4 body is compatible with three lenses: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm F2.0, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f1.8 and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ.

Yuneec’s CGO-ET is the industry’s first camera to combine simultaneous thermal and residual light capture. All of the cameras can be operated either in Single Mode or Team Mode. Single Mode allows users to control the camera and UAV through one ST16 Pro, while Team Mode allows a second ST16 Pro to operate the camera independent of flight.

“Our engineers not only addressed core needs, but developed a sUAS platform that excels in a variety of applications for professional users,” said Wen Yan Jiang, Group CEO and Chairwoman of Yuneec International Co., Ltd. “We’re offering waypoints through aerial maps, mission task modes, and a high-end, versatile Panasonic based camera system with multiple lens options for crisp aerial footage when affixed to the H920 Plus and smooth ground footage with the ProAction Grip.”

The H920 Plus is outfitted with a carbon fiber fuselage and arms creating a light, yet durable and stable platform optimal for use in industrial and commercial environments. It also features a six-rotor design capable of emergency flight with only five rotors, quick-disconnect props and a 360-degree, 3-axis gimbal coupled with retractable landing gear that provides an unobstructed view from any angle. The camera and gimbal are capable of a 20 degree up-angle for upward-looking inspections.

The ProAction Grip is a dual-grip ground handle that extends the CGO4 from sky to ground, allowing users to capture ultra-stable and remarkably steady footage in the most turbulent circumstance. Users simply connect their smart device with the ProAction ground handle through the CGO4 app, available for free in the App Store and Google Play Store, to seamlessly view a live HD video feed and control the CGO4 gimbal.
