Yuneec HX 3


Watch out DJI!

Another hexacopter hits the market out of China but I think the sUAS world might go gaga for the radio.

HX3 is the first of a new generation of smart aerial photography systems under the Flying Eyes Brand. It features functions, such as accurate positioning, auto altitude control, direction control and auto take-off and landing; which greatly lowers the operational requirements of the pilots and offers long ight times.

ST24 is a new generation of intelligent RC Transmitter. It not only acts as an RC controller, but it is also designed for personal entertainment with an integrated Android PAD.

GB1000 is a dual-axis brushless motor driven gimbal system with high sensitivity. It is
compatible with the Canon 5D MARKII, and assists users achieve a perfect aerial photography experience. The built-in CC 4in1 camera control module makes the real-time digital image tele transmission and long-range control of the flying camera possible. There is also an optional 3-axis GB1000 version, which is more advanced and accurate in camera angle control.
