Yuneec Releases First Person View Headset delivers an immersive flying experience
When we talk about Yuneec, most of us would think about the drones that the company has released to date, where one of them is the Yuneec Typhoon H drone which offers an unprecedented degree of professionalism without having to break the bank. Having said that, Yuneec has decided to charter new territories this time with the introduction of its all-new SkyView first person view headset.
This would make Yuneec as the first major consumer drone manufacturer to offer its own FPV headset, allowing users to operate via the onboard camera. Not only that, the SkyView would come in handy when it is used to watch movies, and play video games, which would be among its other capabilities. With a recommended asking price of $249.99 a pop, the SkyView FPV headset will definitely open up doors to a new dimension for drone owners.
Needless to say, the all-new SkyView is an enclosed FPV headset will play nice with the aforementioned Yuneec Typhoon H and Tornado H920. This particular headset will boast of facilities such as a built-in 5-inch HD display that transmits in 720p, a massive 75.5-degree field of view and a 16:9 aspect ratio for a stunning, life-like display. As one wears the SkyView headset, pilots can then check out exactly what the drone “sees” from its onboard camera, offering what Yuneec claims to be a true “first person view.”
The design itself is ergonomic in nature, allowing the SkyView to boast of a durable and adjustable headband which is not only comfortable for long term use, it will also be able to accommodate glasses as well. The moment pilots complete their flight, they are able to connect the SkyView via the HDMI port in order to check out the playback of videos, watch movies, and gaming, among others.
