Xiaomi FIMI A3 Review
Many compare drones to each other and get used to ensure that what is going to be bought is really what they want. It usually takes 3 major criteria for a good drone: the price; features and design. I left design last because many will contradict me, but I’m sure this is also a reason for choosing “perfect” drones for our needs. In this Xiaomi FIMI A3 review, we will list all the details that are part of the three categories and we will also talk about comparisons made with other drones.
The Xiaomi FIMI A3
I would say that as long as the drone contains GPS and HD camera on a gimbal we already have some great fun in our hands. The FIMI gimbal can be stabilized in two directions mechanically. The yaw is handled electronically. The 4k camera with 8 MP, shooting 1080p video are flexible and offer great picture quality. It has a 1/3.2″ sensor and an aperture of f/2.0. The field of view is 80-degrees and has a max bitrate of 60Mbps. Captivating enough?
Getting into the drones category under $ 300, this camera is extremely good. The price is suitable with what FIMI offers, which is why it could take the place of many competitors.
All features of FIMI reported at a price of less than $ 300 are extremely appealing. There is no other drone with the same qualities at this price. But it comes close to DJI Spark or Hubsan Zino just that they are somewhat more expensive. This is the comparison we have mentioned above. DJI and Hubsan are more popular brands. And as we can see, Xiaomi joins with good features and a much lower price. That doesn’t mean any worse quality. On the contrary, the images created with FIMI’s camera are very qualitative.
The main flight modes are return-to-home, follow-me, orbit, fixed-wing, and drone flight modes. In addition, it is possible for the user to customize his drones. They can add lights or servos due to a DIY port.
One key return is another feature common to most of the newer drones. It helps fly and fun without having to stress that you could lose it from the viewfinder. Also, do not forget the pre-flight positioning of the drones. There is also a headless mode that is also a great help. Also, altitude hold is another important detail that we mention between the features of FIMI. The drone also features a built-in GPS.
What could be more important with a camera drone than the fact that you need a screen to see what the drones see, know what you’re going to capture. Usually, you can enjoy the FPV experience on your phone. The drone can connect to its remote controller via the drone’s mobile app. Instead, FIMI has a remote control with a built-in screen so you don’t have to use your phone.
You don’t need either a special app or WiFi connection. This will help you not waste time, and the drone can get up in the air faster. It claims to be a 5.8G signal, but it’s unclear whether it’s 5.8G WiFi or a 5.8 GHz digital signal.
With a super flight time of 25 minutes, the Xiaomi FIMI A3 outperforms both DJI and Mavic Air. The distance range of 1000m is also a great score.
