If you’re serious about your video shooting, or you’ve ever thought about picking up a drone, you need to check out Yuneec’s latest Typhoon Q500 4k quadcopter. This modular system is built around a 3-axis precision gimbal camera that attaches to either the Typhoon Q500 multicopter or the CGO Steadygrip ground handle. The camera shoots 4K/30fps Ultra-HD video, 1080p/120fps slow motion video and 12 megapixel photos, but the by land and by air options give you additional use on the ground when weather, battery life or locations won’t cooperate. When you’re in the air, you get 25 minutes of flight time, different flight modes (Follow Me, Watch Me, Angle, Home) and a touchscreen based ground station that feels like the RC planes your dad wouldn’t let you play with when you were a kid. Just as importantly, the entire multicopter can be unboxed and flying in under three minutes.
