About a week ago, we wrote about the latest drone from Yuneec the Mantis Q. Initially only available in Europe, but now we got an email from Yuneec letting us know that the voice-controlled and foldable drone will be available for pre-order in the US as well. Pre-orders start today. It is priced at $499.99 which puts it well below the DJI Mavic Air and the Parrot Anafi but higher than the DJI Spark. However, if you want the remote control, three batteries, a shoulder bag, and more, the price will come to $649.99, which puts it in direct competition with the drones I mentioned before as well as the DJI Mavic Pro. Let us know in the poll below, which drone you would pick!

Upon first glance, this drone might look like any other Spark or Mavic Air competitor, but after a closer look, you’ll come to find it has a decent set of specs. Let’s discuss what makes this drone stand out.

A couple of days ago, drone enthusiast David Eighteen took his Yuneec Typhoon H (not the Plus) to the waterfront of the River Medway and sort of stumbled upon this almost 100-year-old U-boat while flying his drone. David’s hi-res aerial photos and some additional research into this shipwreck make for a very interesting story and it is a great example of how drones can open up a new world that otherwise may go unnoticed.
