An upgraded version of the Typhoon H that includes a vision based collision avoidance system called ‘Intel RealSense‘ was demonstrated at the CES 2016 trade show.
A key reason why the Typhoon H has been successful in the aerial cinematography world and is often preferred to models like DJI’s Phantom and Inspire, is because of the built in Android Tablet to the 2.4ghz transmitter. This provides built in telemetry and direct camera streaming.
