Yuneec released an affordable drone designed for social photography

The Yuneec Breeze

The latest drone from Yuneec isn't targeted at drone enthusiasts, but at people who want to step up their Instagram game. The Yuneec Breeze is a $499 "flying camera" that can take 4K video and 13MP images that can easily be shared to your social media accounts through the accompanying app.

The Breeze comes with five automated flying modes (including a selfie mode), an indoor positioning system that utilizes optical flow and infrared positioning sensors so it won't crash into your TV, and it weighs in at less than a pound. Using the Breeze Cam app, which is available on iOS and Android, users can share their photos and videos directly to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WeChat, and WhatsApp as soon as the flight is over.

With a flight time of 12 minutes, the Breeze won't stay in the sky for long, but the company says you can fully recharge the drone in around 40 minutes. The Yuneec Breeze is available for purchase today at retailers nationwide, including Best Buy.
