Today’s question is about the Yuneec H520. Can you shoot great photos and videos with this drone? Is the Yuneec H520 a good drone for 3D mapping?
Our caller has just given his Part 107 and is planning on becoming a drone entrepreneur. He is wondering if he can use the Yuneec H520 for photography and videography. How does the Yuneec H520 compare to DJI’s Phantom 4 Pro? Are there any significant hardware issues that you need to be aware of?
What about sensor build and quality? Learn why the presence of a linear rolling shutter on the Yuneec is such a disadvantage for 3D mappers. We thank our caller for the well articulated question. Fly Safe!
