Yuneec Quadcopters are a great alternative to the DJI Phantom 4. Many drone pilots find that Yuneec drones offer capabilities not found in DJI’s machines. However, we are often asked by pilots if Yuneec drones are really comparable to drones like the Phantom 4.
Today, we take a question from Pavlov in Greece. Pavlov wants to know if we would recommend buying a Yuneec drone. In order to answer Pavlov’s question, we discuss the pros and cons of the Yuneec H520 and some other models. Additionally, we talk about the benefits of Yuneec drones for mapping and how Yuneec products present a challenge the the industry titan that is DJI.
Thanks for the question, Pavlov! Fly safe!
