The system will be available from August.

H850-RTK Business Class Drone

In the marketing material that Yuneec has made available, the H850 is touted as a “multiple payload business class drone”. With the new system, Yuneec seems to be competing with DJI’s M300, but at a lower price.

The flight time of the system is 60-65 minutes. Without a camera and gimbal, the drone weighs 5.8 kg. The MTOW is 9.3 kg, which equates to a payload of max 3.6 kg. The range in CE mode is approximately 8 km. For positioning, the H850 uses RTK GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, and Galileo. Obstacle detection will be offered as an option at a later stage.

The H850 is compatible with several cameras from Yuneec’s range, including the E90x 20-megapixel camera with a 1″ sensor, the E30Zx camera with 30x optical zoom, and the E20TVx radiometric thermal imager with residual light sensor.

Controller and battery system

The H850 comes with the new T-one smart controller. It has a 7” display with full HD resolution and a brightness of 1000 nits. The controller runs on Android 10. The built-in 10,000 mAh battery is good for 7 hours of use. Yuneec emphasizes that the controller does not send data to external servers.

The drone is powered by 2 included smart batteries, each with a capacity of 295 Wh. These can be charged with the Power Charging Station, which is also part of the delivery package. This charging case can simultaneously charge four H850 batteries and two T-one batteries.
