You can fly your drone for approximately 27 minutes with a single charge as the drone has a 5100mAh battery at 17.4V. The drone features GPS and GLONASS for positioning and when in tight spaces or low altitudes where it cannot get a satellite signal it uses its own visual positioning system. It also has a PCB antenna which strengthens the signal allowing the drone to be controlled at a range of 2 km.

The drone’ remote
The drone’s remote is very user friendly: it’s very comfortable in your hands and with just a short press or a long press on a button you can take off or land the drone. It also has a switch with which the drone will return back to you and when the battery is running low (which will let you know by flashing an alarm on your phone screen), you disconnect it from the remote, or the drone is too far from the controller the drone will do that by itself. The controller can be charged via USB.
Xiaomi Mi drone also has an autopilot option that you can use for waypoint flight path planning, automatic landing and take-off or to circle and object on the ground.
