Welcome to VH Drones Monthly Newsletter for June. We have a few important new products to tell you about this month.
We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Yuneec Typhoon H Hexacopter and it's finally here. With its 6-blade configuration, retractable landing gear, 360 degree rotating camera, ultrasonic obstacle avoidance, smart modes and team mode, it brings a lot of great capabilities. These capabilities give you the ability to position the Typhoon H to get exactly the shots you want. We still have a few in stock with the free Wizard, but they’re going fast. You can order yours today for just $1299.99.

That’s it for now. I hope you’re all enjoying the warm weather and taking every chance you can to get out and fly.
