Yuneec just announced their new Breeze drone product. a small 280 size mini-quad with exceptional stability, a hard-mounted camera with digital stabilization. small enough to fit in your backpack. This is not the videographers drone, but the family and sports drone. check it out after the link
Yuneec sure are supplying lots of good entertainment lately. we have all been waiting for their $800 RTF mini-Q quad... it was to be announced with the 1080p camera they were already shipping on the Q500. And at the same time original Yuneec Q500 customers are impatiently waiting for the 4K camera to be released.. Yuneec keep pushing it back.
Now it looks like the explanation is a bit more complicated than just delays in production.. and more like Yuneec have re-designated the current production of 4K cameras to fill a contract with HorizonHobby for their new Yuneec made Chroma quad, available with 1080 or 4K cameras. and even with the long awaited Yuneec GoPro gimbal.
While Yuneec is working hard to establish themselves as a big brand (WHICH they really are) they clearly like the big checks / orders when dealing with big-box retailers like HorizonHobby, and rumors suggest a maybe Target and a couple others might be coming online as Yuneec outlets later this year.
I would say the big spending on NAB probably have helped solidify their big-leaque image, and Im glad its working, because the Yuneec IS a good product. but Im also sure that a lot of original Q500 launch customers, probably right now are feeling left high and dry. I really like the products and the staff. one way or another, the new Yuneec products is a great entry into multi rotors, lets hope Yuneec have plans to keep their direct customers as happy as HorizonHobby's customers.
The q500 4K was finally re-announced today at $1299 exactly what the original q500 cost a few months back and the same price as the 4K chroma.
Last year Yuneec Eletric Aviation teased us with a sweet little video quad and a pro-level 900 size video platform. Ive been blogging about multirotors for the last year or so, and have already learned that about 80% of the teased copters turn out to be nothing more than.. well hot rumors.
So. what about the new Yuneec q500? its very real, and its flies great, Click through for the skinny on the new Yuneec copter when Bo review the Q500.
