Will be interesting to see, looks like same design but other transmitter. The Zino Pro does not look to become that populair either here, so interesting to follow.

Seems like Hubsan is just flooding the market now with the $400 price point and not doing a whole lot more than providing "Different" models...A bit concerning for the lower tier fliers and newbies to be able to decide on which if any of their products are worth buying to start with and why one is "better" over the other if any?

Besides the upgraded RC with LCD, it takes higher capacity battery which of course adds some extra weight...

Wow, that sets a new standard for $400 drones. Sure makes DJI look overpriced. Specs look good with 4K60, 33 min flight time, 6 Km range. We will have to wait for real reviews, but I expect it to do as well or better the Zino Pro.
I remember my first Phantom p1 cost $670 (2013 dollars), had a 10 min flight time and did not include a camera.

Looks like could be a great drone

Ambarella H22
4K 60FPS /100Mbits
Obstacle sensors
33min flight time
6Km range

At $399 it will no doubt shake up the bottom end of the market even more. The team at Hubsan really supported and developed the Zino so well this year so this should be a great drone from the start. Will probably squeeze the troubled Fimi X8 out of the market at this price as well.

Looking forward to this Zino 2.

Yeah but this thing looks miles better. If this has built on the Zino's impressive platform then Hubsan have nailed the Chinese budget market.

At $399 this is one hell of a statement. Gloves are off....

First look on an actual Zino 2 over at Gearbest:

DJI Mavic Mini Killer? - The New Hubsan Zino 2 First Look & Giveaway! - Gearbest.com (2 min 9 sec)


$399 for pre-sale order (Gearbest) the one battery/no bag version; yup, why buying the Pro anymore? Zino 2 €560 on Hubsan's own site https://www.hubsan.com/eur/index.php...roducts_id=672

Sticks can be removed from the transmitter

Battery status-LEDS on the bottom; also what looks like bottom sensors (optical flow? and IR? Ultrasonic?) but doubt they are obstacle sensors.

Do hope Hubsan is smart enough to also give the Zino 2 a more 'pro' app with more manual settings for video and photos, like whitebalance and exposure and/or EV-lock or the likes.

Of course they are still making a profit at this price. Their fixed costs for things like design, tooling, patterns, software, support and such would be as much as DJI but spread over a much smaller quantity of sales. Yet they still can sell at this price and make a profit.
When you look at the Mavic Mini which is 1/4 the weight, smaller motors, smaller batteries, no obstacle avoidance, no 4K, no 4K60, less flight time, less range, less speed and no display in the controller, you realize how overpriced it is. These things probably don't cost $200 to make.

Yes larger volumes makes it easier and quicker to absorb the overheads.

The physical cost of the parts can be made quite efficiently but there are a lot of sunk R&D costs that need to be recovered as well. The profit margin is not what you think it might be.

Hubsan are doing really well by re-investing and launching new products. It's a sign of a company that is wanting to invest and try continue to grow. At the price and the spec this appears the strongest Chinese drone offering out there by a mile now. Exciting times.

I have the Mavic Mini, it is nice to have such small drone, but it has poor wind resistance....
