Not to be confused with “the world’s first drone with obstacle avoidance under 250 grams,” the Zino Mini is the latest drone announced by Hubsan to woo beginners. But, essentially, it’s a straight copy of the Zino Mini Pro minus the obstacle avoidance sensors. And it costs $50 less.
Promoted with a tagline, “let more people fly,” Hubsan Zino Mini is being positioned as an affordable drone that sits somewhere between the Zino Mini Pro ($499) and Zino Mini SE ($349).
So, you have the 1/1.3-inch 48 MP CMOS camera that can film in 4K at 30 fps. You also get features like Night Mode, HDR, and AI Tracking Mode to optimize low-light photos or track a subject automatically. Plus, the drone can fly for up to 40 minutes on a single charge – which translates into an extra nine minutes of playtime compared to DJI Mini 2.
For this, you’d spend $459 – similar to what the Mini 2 costs.
But if someone were in the market to buy a Hubsan, wouldn’t it…
