Yeah, it was pretty good, especially considering the high wind conditions; not exactly good conditions for nice and smooth video results. So far I like what I see

The RC Saylors didn't do anything to that inflight footage; they just don't and also mentioned it in the video

I'm starting to feel better about my impulsive pre-order!
Now, if I could just get a shipping notice

Love the gimbal operation, it was rock solid video out to 300m (approx. 1000 feet?) anyway.

Did great in windy conditions keeping the video still. Zino did drift a little left in yaw axis but they admitted that they didn't do any setup beforehand to check it out. I like the fact that you can still control yaw axis even on Return Home mode so you can still get the shots you want even when forced to come back.

Look forward to seeing how the other features work in subsequent videos.
Also great that it got 19 minutes when having to work so hard in the wind

Gimmeeee, gimmeeee, gimmeeee!

Curious if you can toggle the lights on and off?

Anyone knows what the regular price will be once this pre-order phase ends?
I intend to wait for some more reviews before buying to make sure.

The reason I'm waiting for TRUE stock on other sellers and avoid "official coupon pre-sale order"

Re: 5.8 Ghz Goggles...info I found about Zino Specs:

Hubsan Zino Specification
Whilst we have no official specifications one can clearly see from the teaser video that the H117S Drone will have brushless motors and foldable propellers. It will also have GPS and and some automatic flight modes. The main challenge Hubsan has is to perfect a camera and gimbal system that will provide smooth video. The Gimbal on the Hubsan Zino H117S looks from the above image to be similar to the Gimbal from the excellent DJI Spark and is likely to be 2 axis rather than 3 but at the moment this is only a guess. Unlike DJI products there does not seem to be any sensors on the foldable Hubsan Zino.
Zino Flight Range: 2.5 km
H117S Flight time: 20 minutes from a fully charged Lipo Battery
Top speed: 60 km / h
Drone Camera: 2K
Drone Motors: brushless
Camera and FPV video broadcast: broadcast video to the console (5.8 GHz)
Functions: GPS, Altitude Hold, Return to Home , waypoints, Headless mode, Follow me functionality.

If it broadcasts 5.8 video back to "console", shouldn't the 5.8 ghz goggles pick up the signal???
Maybe this was too early of a guess on specs though???

If it is truly a 5.8gHz transmission, I would certainly believe the goggles should receive the signal.

Coz it's a WiFi digital transmission based one of the 5.8G channels associated with the IEEE 802.11ac/n norm nothing related with a classic analog transmission for CVBS sources

Bummer. Seems the only option for goggles would be google cardboard or similar. But of course there is still the issue of needing the phone connected to the controller for flight. Maybe they will eventually sell WiFi goggles like parrot did for the beebop2?
