Xiaomi needed some time to solve some issues, changes in parts of the hardware included.
Further the spare parts situation should be considered. For example Xiaomi doesnt sell spares for the cam/gimbal. If you crash and you need a new gimbal you have to pay $300. Battery is overpriced, about $80 for the Mi drone.

I think the Zino is a interesting drone, but I will wait two or at least one year after release before buying one.

I have learned my lesson with the Mi drone. I dont fly it often, and dont want to pay $80 for a batt that can be used for one model only.
Well, it is a good thing the spare batteries cost $30 and not $80. Spare props are also reasonable at $3, for a whole set. Looks like upkeep won't be a limiting factor. I am not counting on the rest of the parts being so cheap, otherwise I would be a little more concerned about the quality.

For the size and the idea of a portable drone you should compare it with a Spark or a Mavic Air
I wasn't comparing the Zino to the Phantom, I just mean DJI wins the competition - so far - for my money. Yes, I would agree the Mavic is a better portable drone than the Phantom, but to me the Phantom is the better camera platform which is what I want in a quad when I need it. Zino is still interesting and I'll reserve my final decision until it's been out for a while and demonstrates it's value/worth. I am not anti Hubsan, as I own 3 of them. Just need to see the Zino released and see what it tells us.

Footage


The Real footage shot by Hubsan Zino (1 min 44 sec)


Very poor gimbal job for 400$ imo...
And also the position hold considering no wind conditions...

It's not so so bad .... not yet perfect but at least almost no vibrations ... so probably a firmware update can improve the situation

Footage on YouTube was 720p max...nice video but would have liked to see it go out further and move the camera left/right and up/down to show it off. Looks like no audio again with camera Nice sub-$500 drone if all of the parts work together as advertised. I have one on the way...I hope.


P.S. I went back on YouTube and it was in 1080p that time??? It was very good color and detail.

The colors, focus, and resolution are pleasantly surprising in that video. I'll have to keep my eyes open as they roll this out, but I still can't justify the cost for a small incremental improvement.

It doesn't look that bad, but I've heard that Hubsan will push the delivery one month later as they have some kind of issues .... so a delay may arise.

Disappointing, if true. Well I guess I can see the delay since the Zino seems to attract other Zinos that will probably crash into one another (Joke: see video)

The RC Saylors got a Zino in and unboxed it on their channel, but didn't fly it yet. Will be interesting to see what experience they get out of it.
