Having won a fair share of drone enthusiasts with the Zino , one of the best quality-price 4K drones , Hubsan presented its evolution on the market, the Hubsan Zino PRO, which improves the base model, relaunches the challenges the mid-range DJI products like the Spark and the Mavic Air, but above all the FIMI X8 SE. With the new camera that shoots in 4K at 30 fps and uses removable lenses with different interchangeable filters (and can be purchased separately), Zino Pro also winks at pilots who want to approach the world of professionals, all at a decidedly low price competitive.
Compared to the basic Hubsan Zino, the new model PRO version differs mainly due to the new communication system between drone and controller (according to the manufacturer it has a control range up to 4km), and for the newer, more powerful processor, which should make the processing of images and filming even more fluid. For the rest, we are faced with an older brother who looks almost like a twin, especially with regards to the outward appearance (just change the color from white to black), a folding drone that is easy to carry and weighs 700 grams.
As for the flight, Zino PRO reaches a maximum speed of about 30 km / h and uses GPS and GLONASS sensors for orientation. The battery is 3000 mAh and is fully charged in about two and a half hours. According to Hubsan, it ensures a flight autonomy of up to 23 minutes, but obviously the manufacturer speaks of “optimal circumstances”, ie in the (unlikely) event of no wind throughout the flight, so it is advisable to evaluate a more realistic duration of just under 20 minutes.
The camera shoots in 4k at 30 fps (but lowering the resolution even reaches 60 fps) and uses the Ambarella A12S chip. The stabilization takes place mechanically thanks to the 3-axis gimbal, while the lens is removable and more filters can be used (to be purchased separately). The Hubsan Zino PRO is full of smart features, first and foremost those related to security. The RTH function, that is an automatic return to the starting point, can be activated manually but is also activated in case of signal loss or low battery. During landing, after the drone has reached the coordinates, a special optical sensor is activated to improve accuracy.
Hubsan Zino PRO has smart flight modes and the management of the drone and contents are easily done with the X-HUBSAN app, available for Android and iOS systems. We can grab it from TOMTOP at $369.99 with Duty-Free Shipping
