Yuneec Tornado H920 Drone with Micro Four Thirds CG04 Camera – CES 2016

Here's another Yuneec Aerial interview from CES 2016 about their new Tornado H920 Drone. Besides being fairly weather proof to fly under light rainy conditions, the Tornado can be used to fly the Panasonic GH4, BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera, or a brand new CG04 Camera designed by Yuneec. Yuneec worked with Panasonic to develop the CG04, and for the most part is basically a redesigned Panasonic GH4 with integration so that all functions can be changed remotely by the operator while in the air.

The CG04 comes with a 3x optical zoom lens which you can control from the ST24 transmitter. Start stop video, change camera settings, switch modes, and even touch screen to focus. When not used for flying, the CG04 camera system and gimbal will work on the Yuneec Handheld Gimbal System as well. Check out the video below from Yuneec showcasing some additional information Yuneec CG04 Camera System.

"The dream of an adjustable, all-function, remote-controlled, 4/3 inch sensor, aerial capturing system is now a reality. The Yuneec CGO4 incorporates a true Panasonic® GH4 camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and an integrated 5.8GHz video downlink module, housed in purpose designed casing. It can be installed on both the Tornado H920 multi-copter and the ProAction ground system. All the regular Panasonic® GH4 camera settings can be freely and remotely adjusted from the ST24 transmitter, that transforms and reshapes the boundaries of aerial imaging creation. Through the user friendly control app interface in the ST24, the CGO4 becomes an incredible tool to realize the highest levels of aerial photographic and videographic imagery." - via Yuneec Youtube

    when you say it will work with the BMD pocket cam, what kind of functionality are you referring to? Menu access like the gh4?

    I have a BMD Micro cinema camera on pre-order and I'm looking for both a gimbal system and drone for it. Is this a consideration?

    Or any others to suggest?

    I wonder if you have the Tornado H920 and the GH4 with the 14-42 electronic zoom lens, you will be able to do the same functionality like the CGO4?

    Wow! Is that a LIDAR on the top? Would make sense for obstacle avoidance but doesn't reflect the price or the fact they're not bragging about it 😉

    Wow, very nice. I was hoping they'd be a little more aggressive with the price, but it's still a good value.
