Xiaomi Finally Releases It's Drone


I reported previously about what xiaomi was working on.. Well according to the Verge ,
One of China's most popular consumer electronics brands today
launches its own take on one of the hottest categories in consumer
tech: drones. Xiaomi's Mi Drone is a quadcopter with a three-axis
gimbal, 4K camera, and a remote control that uses your Mi
smartphone as its viewfinder. The 4K version retails at 2,999 yuan
(just under $460), while the 1080p model is priced at 2,499 yuan
($380). Typically, 4K-camera drones from DJI and Yuneec retail for
more than $1,000.
One of the key advantages that Xiaomi seems to be touting with the
Mi Drone is the modularity and serviceability of the whole thing —
the camera module is detachable, as are all the rotors. This new
drone has a 5,100mAh battery, which is also easily replaceable, and
Xiaomi claims the unit can get 27 minutes of flight time on a single
charge, which is at the high end of what most consumer
quadcopters offer.
The Mi Drone uses both GPS and GLONASS for positioning, and has
a visual positioning system on the bottom that allows it to remain
stable while flying at low altitudes in environments where it cannot
get a satellite signal. It also offers the standard package of
autonomous flights modes: takeoff, landing, return to home,
waypoint navigation, and orbit. The Mi Drone also has the ability to
create a geofence to limit its movement.
Xiaomi notes that the 1080p Mi Drone "will be crowdfunded on the
Mi Home app starting 26 May 2016" while the 4K option "will be
available for testing via an open beta programme at the end of July."
