Yuneec Q500 Typhoon VS DJI Phantom 3

Meet the Q500 Typhoon from Yuneec. Meet The DJI Phantom 3. Which one It's a better quadcopter for aerial video and photography.

The Yuneec Q500 With all it’s impressive features is definitely  a good competitor to the dji phantom 3 both in flight terms as for aerial filming capabilities.

Both Quadcopters Are Capable Of Recording Video Easily

Of course, since these two systems are intended for aerial photography, they share some features in common, like the built-in screen controller where you can easily record a video without dealing with other piece of additional equipment.

So with that being said If you’re interested in getting higher quality video (up to 4K), you may want to consider the Phantom 3 Professional, which can record video at three levels: High Definition (HD), Full High Definition (FHD), and Ultra High Definition (UHD).

Whereas the Typhoon Q500 only supports video in HD, this may be enough for drone enthusiasts that don't want to do professional filming.

What About Aerial Photography?

As for still photos, the Typhoon provides 16 megapixel images compared to the 12 megapixel images captured by the Phantom 3.

Is Field Of View Important For You?

One factor that is very crucial when it's decision time for some drone enthusiasts is the field of views offered by them. They are much different, the DJI being 94 degrees and the yuneec being 115 degrees.

The DJI shows less picture and the yuneec showing more field of view. That's the difference in their FOV. Other's say the videos taken from a DJI Phantom 3 are much sharper and they are happy with the 1080P videos saying they are special.

Other users prefer a Q500 4K videos saying that the typhoon 4k looks cinematic, while the DJI Phantom 3 Professional just looks usual.
