YI Technology to Debut World’s Fastest Tri-Copter Drone

SEATTLE, WA --- YI Technology announces the forthcoming release of YI Erida, the world’s first mainstream, full carbon smart drone equipped with the YI 4K Action Camera. YI’s professional-grade drone is exceptionally fast and agile, reaching speeds of 75 miles per hour in initial tests, and features proven imaging and vision technology in an aerodynamic, three-rotor design. YI Erida will be unveiled at InterDrone, the International Drone Conference and Exhibition, in Las Vegas, September 7-9, 2016.

Fly Faster & Longer

Because of its highly durable and lightweight, 100 percent carbon fiber frame and its unique three-rotor design, YI Erida is exceptionally fast and agile, reaching speeds of up to 75 miles per hour and flying for up to 40 minutes in initial tests. The YI Erida features patented, folding rotors offering a compact design that makes it versatile, portable and easy to carry, whether in the backyard or around the world.

Control Tighter & Smarter

YI Erida features intelligent, modern software and sensors, to make maneuvering smarter, simpler and safer. The corresponding YI Erida mobile app draws on YI’s proven track record in simple, user-friendly mobile solutions, making a remote obsolete. From the app on any mobile device, users can set the flight mode, choose the height and shooting angle, control takeoff and landing, and check battery status, distance and flight time. For maximum safety, YI Erida boasts an advanced sensor and radar system with a built-in laser scanner to examine its surroundings, and automatically increase flying height if the ground begins to elevate.

Shoot Sharper & Smoother

YI Erida features the YI 4K Action Camera, the only action camera on the market today that combines 4K video recording at 30 fps, with up to 120 minutes of recording time and an integrated, high-resolution touchscreen. It also offers manual IQ parameters for advanced photographers including shutter, exposure value compensation, level sensitivity, metering mode and white balance. For the smoothest shooting possible, YI Erida offers an advanced gimbal system, which is essential for producing professional-quality footage. YI Erida’s gimbal works seamlessly with the drone, camera and mobile app.

To bring the YI Erida to market, YI is working with Atlas, a team of aerospace engineers and software developers who first caught the attention of market leaders through an Indiegogo campaign in 2015. The two companies bring together civilian- and military-grade aeronautics materials and research with world-class imaging technology in the newest, industry-leading drone.
