 Which cameras are compatible to the Typhoon H Plus?
The Typhoon H Plus comes with the C23 1 "sensor camera and is so far not compatible with any other YUNEEC cameras.

 

How does the Team Mode function work? What do I need to use it?
With Team Mode, you can independently control your copter and camera with two ST16S remote controls. The camera operator can thus concentrate on his own recordings while the pilot takes control of the drone. To be able to fully use the Team Mode function, you need an additional ST16S matching your existing system. That means, the Typhoon H Plus needs a second ST16S remote control with Flight Mode 2.0 app. Both systems, master and slave controller, need the to be updated to the latest firmware.

 

Can I use the Typhoon H’s ST16 also for the Typhoon H Plus?
No, that’s not possible. The Typhoon H and the ST16 are based on completely different software and hardware and are therefore not compatible with the Typhoon H Plus.

 

Does the Typhoon H Plus have programmed No Fly Zones?
Yes, the Typhoon H Plus is equipped with No Fly Zones, which prevent it from flying in no fly zones, for example near airports.

 

Can I use an external monitor?
Yes, an external monitor can be connected via the HDMI connection of the ST16S remote control.
