    Stumbled across this:
    V18 18X Zoom Stabilsed Camera

    And a review of the prototype here:


    It only has about 2MP resolution, but the 18X zoom, thats what I am talking about.
    Hope they make a version for the H.

    Might work for SAR and possibly for inspection but what an awful video for selling a product, all it really showed is why zoom and telephoto or unsuitable for drone photography.I can't really believe Yuneec would put that out for marketing. Still, at last they are not bigging it up thi time ;)

    I have a 27x zoom with gimbal with lower resolution (not for photography); works pretty good but you need a smooth stable platform with vibration at a minimum. It weighs ~300 grams and cost $600.

    I would not want it for photography, but for inspection SAR work it will be great.
    The H can lift it, just not sure how much of a hit you would take on flight time.
