China’s Yilong Drone

The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media: reports that China has sent its Yilong drone to the Paris Air Show to display China’s achievements in developing and marketing drones.

Li Yidong, chief engineer of the drone, said that the Yilong is among the world’s best drones of similar functions and it lags behind US and other Western counterparts by less than a decade in overall functions.

The report says there are quite a lot of users of the Yilong at home and abroad, and China has exported tens of Yilong drones.

The report concludes that Yilong users who have also used similar US products have revealed that some of Yilong’s functions are much better then its US counterpart.
