Yuneec Rolls Out Flying, HD Selfie Camera, Beats Lily To Market
Yuneec, the Chinese flying drone developer which has its U.S. headquarters in Ontario, California, has rolled out a new drone today--the Breeze, which it calls a "flying camera". The new drone--which costs $499.99--is specifically designed to take aerial photos and videos of consumers, for sharing on social media. Yuneec said the new flying camera will fly both indoors and outdoors, and is controlled by an iOS or Android app, and can instantly post videos and photos to Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and WhatsApp. Yuneec has easily beaten Lily, the crowdfunded company which first came up with the idea of a drone entirely for selfies, to market; Lily is still in the midst of pre-ordering, and has not yet set a ship date; Lilly is priced at $899.
