Product Overview

The Yuneec H520E and H520 are the latest in a long line of acclaimed drones from Yuneec. The H520E is a hexacopter that can fly at speeds up to 20 m/s and ranges up to 7 km, while the H520 is a quadcopter with comparable range and speed. Both models feature advanced obstacle avoidance technology, 4K video resolution, and a high-quality 20 MP camera with multiple shooting modes. Orbit mode allows you to set waypoints for the drone to follow as it orbits around an object, and Waypoint Mode allows you to create custom routes for your drone to fly along.

Yuneec H520E/520 Specification


The Yuneec H520E/520 is a Multirotors drone that was released by Yuneec in 11/2020.

The 6 rotor profile of the Yuneec H520E/520 can offer advantages over the standard 4 rotor design, particularly around fault tolerance. Less chance of completely destroying your drone when one rotor fails.

A multirotor drone is a multiple propeller, vertical lift drone. These drones are more maneuverable due to their flight profile, being able to fly much closer to buildings and other obstacles. Multi-rotor drones like the Yuneec H520E/520 also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The battery capacity inside is 6200 mAh.

The Yuneec H520E/520 sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 20 m/s. This might not be a bad thing though, so it really depends on why you're looking at buying the drone. If you're happy with a slightly slower drone then this one could be what you're after.

With a well above the average maximum range of 7 km, you're guaranteed a long-distance flight. Be assured you'll reach the distance you need, from the comfort of your mobile office, or even your couch, and know that your drone won't just disappear off into the distance.

The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 28 min. This flight time will be plenty of the average user, and should give you more than enough time between charges. You can always bring an extra battery to swap out between flights, or just a battery pack to charge it up as you go should you need a little more flight time.
