The newly announced Zino Mini Pro sounds like quite the drone. If its specs are correct this drone could certainly challenge the DJI Mini 2 and the Xiaomi Fimi Mini as a formidable alternative in the sub-250 gram drone space. But the Zino Mini Pro has some impressive specs that might just put it into competition with bigger drones like the DJI Air 2S.
The Zino Mini Pro is set to be another option for people looking for a drone that weighs less than 250 grams. It has some impressive specs that will put the DJI Mini 2 to shame if they make it into production. The specs below come directly from Hubsan:
- 1/1.3 inch CMOS image sensor
- 48M pixels
- 2.4um mixed large pixel
- f/1.85 super large aperture
- 6X zoom
- HDR mode
- 4K/30fps H.265/HEVC
- Syncleas.3.0 1080P/30fps
- 10KM range
- Wireless bandwidth 20Mbps
- Max flight time 40 minutes
- only 249g
- Front/Back/Down 3D space perception vision obstacle avoidance
- ATVT 3.0 AI Tracking
Getting a small sub-250 gram drone with a 40 minute flight time would be impressive. Right now the only consumer drone with a 40-minute flight time is the Evo 2. There also isn’t a drone in this category with obstacle avoidance sensors. These two features alone would make this drone a certain DJI Mini and Xiaomi Mini killer. With a 10,000 meter range, this is an impressive quadcopter.
The 1/1.3″ sensor is intriguing as is the 48 MP claim. We believe it will be a 12 MP Quad-Bayer type sensor that ups the pixels to 48. The HDR is likely a product of that. There are multiple options for the Zino package you want. You can pick up the Zino Mini with internal storage of 64 or 128 GB. You can opt for a bag, one, two or three additional batteries. There is even a thermal camera option for $1499.
Too good to be true?
If it is on the internet it has to be true, right? Hubsan unfortunately doesn’t have the best track record. The Zino series has plenty of documented issues and quality control problems. We would love to see this drone be what Hubsan says, but we are skeptical. The video above looks great, but we haven’t tested this drone.
We hope that Hubsan can deliver. This drone is in it’s most basic form is the same price of the DJI Mini 2 at $459. Can it compete at this price point? Will Hubsan deliver a quality DJI competitor?
