Yuneec International, the world leader in remote controlled flying devices, announced today that the Q500 Typhoon, a complete aerial photography and videography (APV) drone that combines simplicity of operation with exceptional video quality, is now available for consumer purchase worldwide.
The Q500 Typhoon is shipped 100 percent assembled making it “ready to fly” right out of the box. Developed with the help of more than 200 engineers, the Q500 Typhoon has a 1080p HD camera (creating crystal-clear Full HD images), shoots 60 FPS video (ensuring silky, smooth sequences) and a 3 axis precision gimbal (eliminating any shaking in the recording).
“The most impressive aspect of the Q500 Typhoon is how simple it is to use,” said Tian Yu, chief executive officer at Yuneec International. “That simplicity, paired with our superb technology (1080p HD 60 FPS video and 12 megapixel still photos) means this device produces crystal-clear, high-definition images. This is the consumer drone people have been waiting for.”
The Q500 Typhoon is available for the suggested retail price of $1,299.00 USD and can be purchased through Amazon.com, Yuneec.com, Horizon Hobby dealers and authorized Yuneec distributors.
