In today’s Drone U Hack video, we compare the Yuneec Typhoon H520 to the Phantom 4 Pro. Which drone is better suited for UAV mapping, and why? Is the presence of the rolling shutter on the Yuneec a huge disadvantage for UAV mapping? We do a deep dive to compare mapping data for both these drones. Finally, we share and contrast 3D models generated by both these drones. And let you form the final verdict. Watch and learn and form your own opinion.
