YI Technology has announced that it will release a new product YI Erida Drone, a carbon fiber tricopter drone that features 4K HD shooting and can reach speeds of up to 75 mph (120 kph) and stay in the air for up to 40 minutes. If this is true, it will successfully solve three major technical problems.
YI Technology is the UAV manufacturing industry leader, which sets of intelligent imaging technologies, products and services in one. In the mainstream of the global UAV, YI Erida Drone is the first RC Drone adopted carbon fiber body with 4K shooting technology, and the maximum speed is up to 34m / s. It has the highlights of fast-speed flying, compact and light body, and three-rotor aerodynamic design. It is expected to be shown at the International Drone Expo 2016 where you can get more details on performance.
As following, I will show you its three main features, including flying faster, showing more intelligent, and shooting clearer.
First of all, YI Erida adopts 100% full carbon fiber frame and unique three-rotor design that it features light body and can fly in extreme environments. In the first test, when Erida took a 40 minutes flight, the maximum speed is of 34m / s, highlighting the rapid and agile characteristic. Besides, the patented folding function strengthens its portability. As a result, you can fly it in the backyard or around the world.
Moreover, the modern software and intelligent sensors increase the safety, operability of Erida. Correspondingly, the smartphone used to control Erida is also user-friendly, which enables remote tracking. And it has a high compatibility, which can be connected to any removable device. When the user turns on flight mode, it is possible to adjust the flight altitude and camera angle. And you even can control takeoffs and landings and check flight distance, flight time and battery usage. Most importantly, it is configured with the most advanced sensors and radar systems. Built-in laser scanner detects the surrounding environment. When local plane altitude increases, the flying height will automatically increase.
Additionally, it has the YI 4K Action Camera, which is the only action camera on the market today. It allows 4K video recording at 30 fps, with up to 120 minutes of recording time and an integrated, high-resolution touchscreen. And it supports manually adjusting the parameters, such as shutter, exposure compensation value, the level of sensitivity, metering mode and white balance mode. In order to get the smoothest images, it comes with the most advanced gimbal system.
