This year, Hubsan is releasing the third drone in the Zino line. It is called the Zino Mini and is a slightly simplified version of the Zino Mini Pro. The drone is very light and weighs only 249g, while it is equipped with a 3000 mAh battery, which allows it to fly up to 40 minutes or fly a distance of about 10 km. The drone is equipped with a 1/1.3‑inch CMOS sensor and can shoot in 4K resolution at 30 FPS, however, when streaming to a smartphone, the resolution will be limited to 1080p.
Interestingly, the drone is equipped with AI mode, which allows you to accurately determine the location of moving people, vehicles or animals. For recording in low light conditions, a night mode is provided. The Zino Mini is available with 64GB or 128GB of storage, which can be further expanded with a microSD card. Of course, the Zino Mini is cheaper than the Zino Mini Pro. They ask for $459 for the new product, while the Pro version will cost $499, but in fact there are almost no differences between the models. The key difference between the Zino Mini and the Zino Mini Pro is obstacle detection: the Pro has sensors on three sides, while the Zino Mini only has one downward-facing sensor. I am glad that high-quality drones are becoming more affordable, and their range is constantly updated with new products.
