That's actually a good looking drone. If it's even close to their claims, I'll probably buy one if their price is good, and it usually is! Can't wait till it comes out to see some reviews

Hubsan generally makes good drones but I had bad experiences with them in the past. I am surprised they managed to cram in so much features and still keep the drone at 249g with 40 minutes flight time.

I don't think so DAFLYS ,,, they just xploit the posibilities of the camera sensor and the mainboard processor,meanwhile DJI always "cut" and "disables" several possible features of the DJI drones just for
commercial strategies even if the drone hardware is able to make them ...

Of course,MINI 2 hasn't sensors,but the processor is able of make a Active Track ,responsability of crash on a open environment beyonds to the pilot as when a Quickshot is done ...

Similar reasons for SlowDown 120fps on 1080p , or Hyperlapse (remember that hyperlapses is a
simple script which takes pictures each xxx seconds) ,, so ,, Why Mini2 doesn't make it ? because they want that we spend more money over another DJI DRONES (i.e air2/2s)...

If Zino Mini Pro breaks this lline, it's going to be a nice KICKASS for DJI and its monopoly ..i think that they have been several time abusing of their monopoly,and it's the moment so another enters on
the competition offering better support to us.

Lets hope its better than the Zino Pro then as that also looks good on paper but in practice the quality is terrible, at least from the reviews Ive seen.

Why you gotta talk about DJI like that?

Seriously though, DJI was only competing against itself as no other 249g drone existed or was even possibly a thought. Today, even if it falls short in some area's the fact that other companies are investing into the 249g market means DJI can't pick and choose what features they will make you pay for in the next release, now they have to stay competitive and offer a similar feature set that it previously never had too before.

Competition brings innovation and DJI didn't have a reason to make any major changes to the mini 2, but now we can see not only front Obstacle avoidance is possible at 249 but also rear. It includes all the software features DJI has kept from the mini 1 & 2 users, hyperlapse, spotlight, follow me, active track, DJI won't be able to pick and choose, soon a Mini 3S/Mini 2 PRO with all the features from the air 2s in the mini body....

And to those who question the camera, see how well Fimi has improved since last:

And while at times this doesn't match the mini 2's camera performance, it does match or slightly edge out the mini 1's video IMO.
(Skip around)



These knock off's are quickly catching up the mini 1 while throwing the mini 2 feature set at it.

Looks pretty good on paper.  However, I'd like to see how it performs in flight.  Sometimes marketing gets a bit carried away on products.

Personally I'm waiting on Parrot, the Anafi is mod-able to 249g with a battery change. It wouldn't surprise me if Autel, Skydio, Parrot aren't working on a 249g entry.

Skydio Mini would be perfect. 360 obstacle avoidance, active track, >30 minutes flight time

If they were to release this "flagship" product, what else could they add later in the future? 8K resolution? Hopefully they don't go the same route as DJI and make this drone a little lacking or not as good quality and then release a new, more expensive version with little improvements.

They will over promise and under deliver.

True.....3 times now.  I have bought new drones with exciting claims but ldet dows when seeing the unspecified and advertised restrictions on claims.
Moreover, Wiuth any dji QUAD,, of the 4 I own.  Not one time have they stood by there obligation is the care refresh contract.  
NO DOUBT many on these forums complain on insignificant issues.  The first flyaway of the first I owned(mini2) was not honored but did get a incredibly generous 15% discount of puchase of new one!  (note sarcasm)

Unfortuneately ...I let this go as an outlier not in iine with ther reputation.  

But now, the AR 2 s , bought at Best Buy, was brought home then immediately before flight within 24 hrs attached to a newly purchased care refresh plus policy for the air 2s.   
Then upon setting and updating for flight, I noticed an unusual sound and louder than normal noise made from the motors.  U understood the motors were the same as the Air 2 which I had already sold.  
I exchanged at BEst Buy fir new drone.  Somehow, I was to know that I am to email care refresh support to have them transfer that policy to new drone.  I understood that, but asked how is anyone to know this is required if new to drones.  No answer so I let it go.  THen told it may take at least 7-10 days for this to take effect.  I use this for income, and cannot wait, but the rep. (assuming it is a human I was communiated this to, then said a phrase I would see again over and over: " " Kindly provide....then we will take it from there?    Wonderful...but  then I asked could i in the meantime purchase another new refresh policy for gap coverage until transfer is complete.  after then finally transferred to human....I was assured I may either wait for transfer or i can do both and be refunded for the policy that goes unused assuming not used due to damage.  No poblem...
Now I have TWO REFRES POLICIES ON ONE AIRCRCRAFT.  IA WAS NEVER TOLD THE TRANSFER OCCURRED BUT COUNTING ON THE ASSURANCE THAT ONCE INFO NEEDED WAS SENT IN, THE DID IN FACT ...."TAKE IT FROM HERE"

HOW WRONG I WAS.   

ANYONE READiNG :  DO NOT .   
DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THEY TELL YOU AT REFRESH SUPPORT.    I AM NOW WITH A CRACK ...RATHER MINOR BUT UNABLE TO KNOW ENOUGH HOW TO FIX THE CRACKED ARM, AM COVERED , HOWEVER AT SAME TIME, EVERN WITH AGREEEMENT NUMBER, TOLD IT IS NOT VALID.  THEN THEY REFUNDED THE COST OF ONE OF THE REFRESH POLICIES!!!!   


CABWANYONE TELL ME WHAT IF ANYTHING I AM MISSING.   IF NOT, IIT WILL BE NOW MY LIFES HOBBY TO BE CERTAIN ALL KNOW OF THIS FRAUD AND NOT TO TRUST ANY CLAIMS OR EVEN BINDING CONTRACT FROM THIS CONGLOMERANT.






PLS IF ANYONE KNOW HOW TO HELP....I BEG FOR ADVICE
