With the new software updates for the YUNEEC H520, a Team Mode function is now available. Team Mode allows you to independently control copter and camera via two remote control systems. Please note the safety instructions below for using Team Mode with the H520.
Team Mode allows you to independently control copter and camera via two remote control systems. While the drone pilot continues to take control of the copter, the camera operator can concentrate entirely on the camera. This collaboration greatly facilitates the capture of creative images and provides not only film producers, but also fire departments, inspectors and other commercial users with a helpful tool for making jobs more precise and to work in a team.
Which remote control systems can be used for Team Mode with the H520 or Typhoon H Plus?
To be able to fully use the Team Mode function, you need an additional ST16S matching your existing system. That means the H520 needs a second ST16S remote control with DataPilot app. Both systems, master and slave controller, must have the latest software version installed.
Please note the following safety instructions for using Team Mode with the H520:
- We would like to point out that under some circumstances an error may occur when binding the ST16S remote control, which requires a restart of the DataPilot.
- Please note that the photo and video functionality in the master remote control as well as the flight and mission functionalities of the slave controller are not disabled. We recommend to not use the above mentioned function during the master / slave configuration.
- We would like to point out that the range in Team Mode can be reduced to up to 500 m (depending on the environment) due to the double video stream.
