Flight Time and Speed
Typhoon H Plus Hexacopter Drone has a flight time of up to 25 minutes, which is much better than most of the other drones on the market (many of them only run for 6 minutes).
As far as the speed goes, it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 35 miles per hour.
The rigid airframe holds six large rotors, so you can expect a stable flight as long as winds don’t go over 30mph which in itself is quite a high tolerance.
Various Flight Modes
Curve Cable Cam – This feature allows the user to program an invisible flight path for the Typhoon H. The drone will fly between the coordinates you pre-set, and control the camera position independently.
Return Home – This is a feature that I always look for on drones. With the return home feature, you can rest with the satisfaction of knowing that the drone will land within 8 m of you.
Journey – In this mode, the Typhoon H can automatically go up and out. It can go as far as 90m and capture an amazing aerial selfie.
Follow Me/Watch Me – When you have this mode on, the drone will move along with you. With the Watch Me mode, it’ll follow you and make sure to point the camera at you.
Orbit Me – This is another interesting mode. In this mode, it will fly a circular path around you and keep the camera pointed on you the entire time.
Point of Interest – With this mode, you will need to choose a subject and the Typhoon H Plus will orbit around it autonomously.
