– Very modular design. Easily foldable & stowable.
– Extra precise GPS + GLONASS + Visual positioning system
– 3 Axis easy snap-in gimbal with tilt control
– Camera 1080p 60fps or 4K
– Long range (1K/2K) 2.4 Ghz control and FPV achieved via printed circuit board (PCB) antennas.
– Automatic return to home/landing on loss of signal or low battery, or manual return to landing at push of a switch.
– Automatic takeoff and landing
– Orientation Lighting
– Large Battery 17.4V 5100mah. Gives up to 27 minutes flight time

“Mi UAV” App Features
– Compass and controller calibration
– Satellite and quadcopter status monitoring
– 720p FPV
– Three automatic flight modes: Fly to Point, Waypoint Route, Circle Point
– Real time position tracking

Cons
– Excessive flight restrictions. Can not fly further than 50m altitude or 100m horizontal range until the quadcopter has achieved 5 hours cumulative flight time. Additionally, quadcopter will not proceed beyond hover if flown in restricted areas.
– Official Xiaomi “Mi UAV” app is in Chinese, and it does not appear that there are plans for an official English release. It’s quite impossible to use unless you know Chinese. There is a non official translated version in English, however it is an older version of the app.
– Firmware updates from Xiaomi do not seem to have been tested prior to release. This has repeatedly caused problems with users, most recently resulting in loss of drone compass inputs for many users. Do NOT update its firmware unless you can confirm via forums that the current firmware release is not problematic.

Joost Buskermolen says:

How’s the app performing now? Is it well translated to English these days? Planning to buy it as a gift, but want to know for sure it’s controllable without any Chinese knowledge haha

Darrell says:

I was told it wont fly above 500 feet , Can you confirm that yet ?

Ben Hayat says:

Can you connect an HDMI Goggle to it while the phone is connected? Or does it even have an HDMI output?

paradoxdesigns says:

Cool place! that camera takes really great shots, too. I just wish the range was a little better. That must be because it’s limited to the phones wifi range?

Georgi R says:

It is awfully noisy. Is phantom 3 … same noisy?

Pak Champs says:

Buy

Dorin R. says:

I see on ”Banggood” page that they are claiming: ”Notice: After the first of the 3000 beta, Xiaomi company has solved all the bugs. Now we selling the perfect version, please feel free to buy”. They are saying that on 15 of November the new drone will be released.

Marco Fan says:

why in all MI Drone videos a lot of comments are from by DJI Phantom owners????? 😀 why??????

N for Noah says:

Is the battery removable

SZretired says:

How many more flights before you get out of the 100m limit?

Brendan Cunningham says:

Glad the leap frog worked. I hope the price comes down, this is a nice quad.

EBGrandom says:

When are you going to review a phantom?

ericwilphotog says:

warrenwazzi says:

The camera seems to change the white balance or something @2:45 it suddenly gets a blue tint. The at about @3:45 it changes back. Is this something that happens often with this cam? Thanks

John Wedrall says:

don searles says:

ComputermanAM13 says:

You can use an app like Mobizen to record the screen 🙂

Benjamin L. says:

Hello, I watched a lot of videos of you…

I’m a beginner with the drones, I have JJRC H8C and I’m happy with it, but I want to try something new, I want FPV and something I can use outdoor, I have a 100 – 300$ budget, which drone could you recommend to me. I have also a TURNIGY 2K SPORT CAM, If I can attach it it could be awsome !

Thanks you

SZretired says:

Will you get any advanced notice on software upgrades that are better than Chinglish? Right now the Xiro Explorer is still my dream.

Rusted1859 says:

great video. you know any good fpv drones costing around 200 or less there are so many its hard to tell what good quality. keep up the good work!

Ben Hayat says:

I really like this drone. Simple and effective.

Mikhael Mangopo says:
