The Yuneec Breeze 4k drone is the smaller brother of Yuneec’s Typhoon drone, it is less aimed at the professional market and more of a consumer drone. It falls in to the category of a social or selfie drone, but has very high end specs. The Breeze is not exactly pocket sized, but it is very small and weighs only 385 grams. It packs in a camera that can shoot 4k video, 13 megapixel photos and has up to 12 minutes flight time (2 extra batteries are included in some bundles).
The Breeze 4k drone and its camera are controlled using the Breeze Cam app, available for free on iOS and Android. There are 5 automated flight modes including orbit, selfie and follow me. Manual flying modes are available but not the aim of the drone, it is happy to fly autonomously and let you just enjoy and share the results. Optical flow and infrared positioning sensors allow it to hover in position, perform automatic landing and feature return to home to make sure it comes back safely.
The maximum flying distance is 80 metres and it can fly at a maximum speed of 5 metres per second. Yuneec’s Breeze does have the option to buy additional FPV goggles or a dedicated controller. The controller is more reminiscent of a games console style than a radio controlled aircraft. FPV goggles are probably not best suited to this drone, but are great for an immersive flying experience.
In terms of photo and video quality it can achieve some very good results, but bear in mind that is does not have a camera gimbal. It can only perform image stabilisation on the smaller shooting modes, so 4k video is not going be the smoothest, especially in windy conditions.
Due to its size and accurate flight modes, the Breeze can be flown indoors or outdoors. There is no setup required for the Breeze , it flies straight out of the box.
