Today we talk about the Yuneec H520 and Pix4D. Should you use the Yuneec H520 and Pix4D for mapping? Is the Yuneec H520 better than DJI’s Phantom 4 Pro?
Our caller, Gerald from Ireland has come up with a great question today. Because Pix4D is now available on the Yuneec H520, Gerald is wondering if he should use this drone for mapping applications. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using the H520? We discuss features such as flight modes and data capture capabilities. Can you use the H520 to map complex structures? Were there significant issues with the H520’s older application, DataPilot?
We discuss whether mappers should opt for the H520 over Phantom 4 Pro. Tune in to find out if you can really create better maps and models using Pix4D and the Yuneec H520. Thanks to Gerald for the question. Fly safe!
