The drone manufacturer company, Yuneec, has announced its latest drone, the H850 RTK.
The drone was designed for commercial applications, including infrastructure inspections, surveying and public safety applications. The new H850 will have a maximum of 65 minutes of flight time, depending on the payload and weather conditions. All payloads which are compatible with Yuneec’s previous drone, the H250E, can be also used with the new H850 RTK.
The H850 is equipped with a dual IMU, compass, barometer, and two smart batteries. According to Yuneec, the drone can land safely even if one of its motors stops functioning midair. Similarly, the aircraft is equipped with dual RTK antennas to ensure high-precision positioning even if one antenna becomes disabled. The drone maker explains that all data, including raw GNSS data and real-time solutions, can be logged on board, ready for Post Processed Kinematics (PPK).
The new drone of Yuneec may compete with the DJI M300 RTK in flight time and functions. The new drone will be available for purchase from August 2022.
