Yuneec Typhoon H520 FAQ's

Up to 6 BfT. Approx. 50km/h

The H520 can be flown from -10°C to about 40°C. Note that the battery shouldn't be cold. A cold battery can lose up to 40% of its performance. At temperatures above 40°C, the electronics may experience a heat problem during continuous operation. The system may need to cool down now and then.

Temperature, payload, altitude and wind affect the flight time.

Resilience. The H520 can be landed safely also with 5 motors and is wind-stable and quieter than a Quadcopter.

If a propeller breaks down or a motor fails, the H520 will switch to 5 Motor Mode and keeps flying.

Max 2,5 kg (takeoff weight incl. copter).


The OBS is a forward faced system based on ultrasonic technology. If an obstacle is detected, the H520 will stop in 4 to 5m distance. Objects must be at least the size of a thumb to be recognized. The system can also be switched off. When the OBS is on, the airspeed is limited to 25 km/h.

Yes you can, but there is limited storage space. Make sure that no map is bigger than 100MB. This would slow down the system unnecessarily. Spread the area over several small maps instead.

Basically, whenever the copter is not flying stable in the air despite having GPS signal available or if the remote control in the DataPilot shows a red status code under "summary" or "sensors". Calibration after changing the location is not necessary.

When calibrating, make sure that there is no metal around the drone. This can affect the internal compass. Check the joystick movements in the RC Monitor. If the reactions to your movements are slow, you need to have your controller checked.
