GoPro has their Karma drone in the works for quite a long time now (and we are still waiting…) Meanwhile, their chief action camera competitor, YI Technology just got ahead of them on the curve. Yi will announce the Yi Erida Drone in one week at the InterDrone conference.
According to YI, it will be a Tri-Copter drone called YI Erida, and it will be a Carbon Fiber built drone. Top speed for this new member in the drone family will be 75MPH (about 120 kilometers per hour).
YI Erida will include the recently announced YI 4K so it will provide 4K @ 30fps. It is also tested (but not verified) to fly for 40 minutes straight. That alone should make DJI and the likes (at least slightly) concerned. Most drones can only do 20-25 minutes, so this is a big marketing point for YI.
