Chinese Tech Gaint Xiaomi’s latest gadget is not a new smartphone or accessory, rather the
company has come up with an all new Mi Drone. This is not the first time the
company is experimenting with these crazy (rather awesome) gadgets. Remember
Mi USB Fans and Lights?
Here’s an introductory video on Mi Drone:
The drone is provided with a 17.4
Volts, 5,100 mAh battery, which will ensure that it is continuously in air for
upto 27 minutes, which is pretty good as compared to other drones available in
Mi Drone comes with a 4K Ultra HD
camera having 104° wide angle lens, which supports recording of stills in RAW
format at a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. The Mi Drone can record 720p live
videos in low latency from up to 2km distance.
For navigation and positioning,
it depends on both GPS as well GLONASS technology. The Drone comes with
advanced autopilot functions such as automatic landing and takeoff, autopilot
through the waypoint on the map, circle any object on ground and all. Whenever
the Drone detects a no flying zone, it'll automatically hover over the edge of
that zone. It also intelligently detects low battery and automatically flies
round back to home, thus avoiding any sort of accidental crash that may occur
after it's battery runs out.
The Drone is actually a quadcopter,
that means it has a 4-propeller flying system. The Drone has a very light
weight and modular design, and as told before is detachable and can be easily
transported when not in use.
