A few days ago Xiaomi could be seen as a teaser which had already rumored for months, his bet on ground drone. Some fashion expected given that these devices are having lately, and seeing that the company is presenting its proposals beyond mobile as televisions and even bicycles. Today is finally official on Mi Drone, the quadcopter Xiaomi.
It is confirmed as we could guess by what was foreshadowed in the teasers: This is a drone with four helices and a camera, much like the DJI Phantom 4 (also in white). Do you have anything to fear this and the drones that at the moment are the leaders of newborn drones consumer sector? Let’s see how Xiami defends the Mi Drone.
A dragonfly promises to fly for about half an hour
As we mentioned, perhaps the design result familiar to other proposals in the existing market, but since Xiaomi explain that in this regard are based on dragonflies (which have four wings). Thus we see that it is a body with four axes for each of the four propellers that allow you to raise the flight, with the camera module in the base.
The battery is 5,100 mAh, with a range of approximately 27 minutes flight. This puts it on paper in a very similar to the DJI Phantom level 4, that although the manufacturer claims a 28 – minute practice we saw that this was at about 20. We’ll see if the Mi Drone meets and is ultimately superior in this regard.
What they have also shown is the remote control which will lead the Mi Drone. A controller designed to be understood by those less accustomed users to these devices, in addition to buttons allows it to put the smartphone in a small stand at the top, so we can see what is capturing the camera and this is an assist to own control drone.
Comfort and good quality images
One aspect on which expectations had (and on which we have maintained a good expectantly time during the presentation) is the camera that mounts the Mi Drone. Detailed here that incorporates a Sony 12 megapixel sensor that will be two versions, one record at 1080p and another that also can record 4K (3840 x 2160) capture images in RAW format.
The idea is that it is an easy to assemble and disassemble for transport it as comfortable as possible, something that does not occur in all cases when we talk about these drones of something larger. What Xiaomi proposed in this regard it is that the user can carry in a backpack with basic parts removed, so that you can easily reset it when using it?
As for its control, detailing it is that there will be a system that will prevent the Mi Drone collide with other elements and also stop if someone arrives without entering the restricted area. The range is about 3 kilometers thanks to its PCB antenna and has a specific button to order an emergency back. For more click here http://artemisanet.com/.Tags: 4K, quadcopter, Xiaomi Mi Drone
