Yuneec has a new hexacopter under its Typhoon series at the ongoing CES in Las Vegas. The Typhoon H is compatible with a collision avoidance module based on Intel’s RealSense technology. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich claimed that it’s the “first truly intelligent consumer drone.” The Typhoon H has retractable landing gear and a camera that can take 4K videos and 12-megapixel stills which can pan a full of 360 degrees. It is equipped with six rotors made of lightweight carbon fiber that allows the drone to be stable and land even if it losses one or two rotors.

The Typhhon H will retail for $1,799 when it comes out, you’ll find a 7-inch Android-based ST16 controller with it. The Intel collision avoidance add-on will likely cost extra, but it could be worth the money to make sure the drone doesn’t crash into other objects.
