Xiaomi MITU Drone Review | Unboxing Setup Flight Test and Camera Footage (27 min 34 sec)

The Xiaomi MITU is pretty good competitor to the Ryze DJI Tello and priced at $20 less.

PROS:
-Ultrasonic stabilization works great. The quad maintains its position when hovering without minimal to no movement
-Solid altitude hold
-Smooth video output despite not having a micro SD card slot
-$20 less than the Ryze DJI Tello
-Flies surprisingly well and easily via the virtual sticks; sticks appear wherever you place your thumbs on the screen.
-4GB of internal storage for photos and video

CONS:
-Camera quality is not terrible, but just meh
-No image stabilization
-Flight time is more like 8-minutes vs. the advertised 10-minutes

👀Please note that the MITU uses a 5.8ghz WiFi signal, so you must have a smartphone that accommodates 5.8ghz in order to fly this drone....Continue Reading

Ryze DJI Tello Firmware Updates and Camera Test | How I Use My Tello | Part 4 (6 min 11 sec)

The Tello is the best selfie drone in my opinion after using it for several weeks. You can zip it around if you want, but it really shines when you want to take pictures with family and friends, or pictures of whatever really. Not just for indoor use either. The 5MP camera produces sharp detailed photos while the vision positioning system keeps the Tello locked into one position. Changes made in the firmware updates are largely unnoticed by the user IMHO, but I did notice that the video drops fewer frames than it did when I first started flying it.
