The Yi camera is an immensely popular GoPro alternative. It’s been that way almost since the day it was launched in 2015; Yi followed it up with the Yi 4K earlier this year.
Now, the Chinese tech company have come up with yet another product that looks as compelling – the Yi Erida drone.
The Yi Erida is essentially a tri-copter designed in 100% carbon fiber casing. According to Yi Technology, the tricopter can do speeds of up to 75 km/h, which isn’t bad for a drone meant for filming.
A 4K camera (yes, the Yi 4K) will come as part of the drone package, which I think is a neat (and a very smart) addition.
What’s more, they’re also claiming a flight time of over 40 minutes… which could be a game changer. We should know more about this drone when the InterDrone conference kicks off in September.
