They don't exist.. don't believe me? Just try and find one. If you do please post back and let me know so that I can get one. I am going to order one from the dread ali express and see what happens.

JJRC X-12 Aurora C-Fly Faith 3 Axis Gimbal Long Distance Drone Flight Test Review


This 3 axis gimbal GPS drone can fly over 900 meters FPV and get over 20 minutes flight time. Find it here.

And here is its long range flight demonstration.
JJRC X-12 Aurora (C-Fly Faith) 3 Axis Gimbal Long Distance Drone Flight Test Review (51 min 37 sec)


Pros
- GPS GLONASS satellite system enables rapid and accurate positioning, and automatic return to home and landing on command, loss of signal, and low battery.
- Controller has a built-in 802.11ac WiFi amplifier and relay for greatly extended WiFi FPV range. FPV range is advertised at up to 1200 meters (I got 900 meters in my flight). You must connect to the controller's WiFi (not the drone's) to enable extended range flying.
- Three axis gimbal for improved smoothness of in flight video. Gimbal includes up and down remote control.
- 1080p camera with 29.699 fps recording capability. Video is recorded to an onboard micro SD card to eliminate lag or frame dropping. And although the camera has a wide angled lens, there is no fisheye effect.
- Brushless motors.
- Optical flow sensor for automatic hovering without use of GPS.
- Two ultrasonic belly sensors for steady altitude control.
- 11.4V 2400mah battery is advertised at up to 25 minutes of flight time (I got over 20 minutes).
- FPV video reception and advanced flight features of follow me and orbit position are available through either ENJOY-FLY app (Android here or iOS here ), or C-Fly app (Android here or iOS here ).

Cons
- Requires 802.11ac WiFi capability on your phone. Not everyone has this type WiFi on their phone. Before purchasing, it is extremely important to first check that your phone is indeed capable of 802.11ac WiFi.
- The drone can not fly without using the app. The drone must be connected to the app for the motors to arm.
- App and drone firmware still has some bugs that need correcting. The drone was stuck in track mode during one of my test flights. Gimbal up and down control did not work properly while in track mode. Waypoint and Google map features also did not work.
- Gimbal was somewhat jerky while flying in Track mode.

The 4K version still takes 1080p video, just like the above drone that I reviewed. They're stretching the truth of claiming 4K as the 4K version takes photos of 4096 X 3072 pixel resolution (the claimed 4K being the 4096 pixel width). The version that I reviewed takes 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution photos, which are frame grabs of the video. That being said, would the 4096 pixel photos be worth the extra $40? Probably not for most folks.

Ok, thanks! I guess I'll go for the Hubsan Zino as the video quality looks way better for a minor price difference.

Those specs doesn't mean much. Just look at a video sample from this and then one from Zino. The Zino quality is clearly better, and can even keep it up with Mavic air in some ways.

FIMI Online Store - Just Open


Just opened FIMI Online Store of AliExpress - to fight back to 3-gimbal drone of C-Fly/JJRC/Eachine group. Eachine store sells Zino and FIMI X8 mid-class drones and sold over 1000 units of FIMI X8, looks like trying to enter mid-class drone market.
FIMI store sells X8 at $445.70, reduced about $200.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000262633962.html

Since 2018, the relation ship with Xiaomi is not longer strong, disappeared FIMI drone products from the major online stores of Xiaomi of Taobao, Tmall and DJ.com, seems to start walking own style.
