With the advancement of drone technologies and with a lot of choices to choose from, it’s a great time to be interested in drones nowadays. One of the latest drones from Yuneec is the compact Yuneec Breeze, The Selfie Drone.
Yuneec’s drone lineup so far has been big black beasts with the Typhoon G, Q500, H and the Tornado H920, then here comes this cute little cuddly drone to join the party.
Yuneec Breeze in a nutshell
Marketed as a drone that is easy to fly even without drone experience, it look like it will live up to this expectation. With its size, it can be flown indoors, so ease of control is a vital part for it. It also has a few different modes: Pilot mode, Follow, Orbit, Journey and Selfie mode. As a Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K owner, I am envious of this as we only have 2 flight modes so far.
Weighing about a pound, the Breeze has folding propellers and legs making it more compact, but don’t be fooled by its size. The Breeze still shoots 4K videos and high resolution images, which you can directly upload to your social media accounts from the Yuneec app.
They have also gone away with complex flight controller, as the drone can be controlled using your iOS/Android device. The device is also designed to operate inside WiFi range. This means you can’t expect that much range or altitude from this.
This compact drone is half the cost of a flagship Phantom. The main issue I see with the drone is the flight time which only lasts 12 minutes per battery, but it is removable so you can purchase extra batteries for it.
There’s one thing Yuneec did right on this drone. The Breeze is straight-up what it is – a lifestyle drone fit for beginners who want to fly a drone, take stills and videos without breaking the bank.
