Yuneec has a rich history in flight. Inspired by the feel and joy of soaring through the air, they have been building drones to try to bring those feelings to anyone. Offering a small yet capable selection of multi-rotor craft, Yuneec satisfies your basic needs of a toy craft up to your commercial bridge inspection and more. The drones are solid, and machines like the H520 proves software is part of the magic.

Made popular for their larger folding machines, join us for a brief rundown, our Yuneec drones guide. As a later update to this topic, we’re starting to get worried about Yuneec, it’s a tough task to compete with DJI for consumer drone sales, we hope Yuneec and others can stay in business.

GreenWing International

First, let’s explain that the small UAS that we’re talking about today are not a part of Yuneec’s larger operations. Up until 2014 Yuneec operated in the U.S., building manned craft, mostly single seat electric planes, under the banner GreenWing International.

Closing the doors on the manned craft operations, Yuneec has put extra effort into putting cameras into the sky. Their list of drones is short, but they’ve put a lot of thought into their machines. Yuneec is one of the only major brands that does not have a semi-ripoff direct competitor to the Phantom drone.

Seeking to put the best of professional flying cameras into the hands of consumers, let’s get to those drones:

Yuneec Mantis G

October 2019

Release Date

The Yuneec Mantis G is everything we had hoped for in the original Mantis Q. We can't see the difference between these drones, save for the new stabilized camera Gimbal. Superb flight time, easy controls, voice activated features, a compact design that folds small for transport and a 4K camera all sound good to us.

Yuneec understands they have stiff competition in this portion of the drone market. They build mostly for the commercial space, but fun drones like the Mantis line and larger Typhoon hexacopters have a tough battle. The Mantis G is a leap forward for the company. We had a hard time recommending the Mantis Q to users that cared about shooting video, now we can put the DJI Mavic 2 drones and this new Mantis G in the same sentence.

Based on price and camera sensor size, the Yuneec Mantis G best competes with the DJI Mavic Air, which is to say it is a viable option for hobby pilots looking for a reliable drone to fly.

The Yuneec Mantis G is $699 today.
