According to Yi the lightweight frame and design would allow the drone to operate at speeds up to 75 mph.

Information about price and availability is still to be revealed but we think that carbon-bodied 75 mph flying drone could be sold both as a camera and silent assassin.
Which is pretty much the average of drones today...

Better question: How can it fly?? Most drones use pairs of propellers that rotate in opposite directions. Speed up the clockwise propellers and slow down the counterclockwise propellers and your drone rotates counterclockwise (Google conservatio...
