Xiaomi MITU FPV Camera Drone Flight Test Review
The advanced sensors of this little camera drone automatically maintains a steady hover position for very easy flying. Find it here and use coupon PFRHTYXP https://goo.gl/r4iPq1 Please note that this drone requires a 802.11ac WiFi capable phone to fly it. Verify that your phone is 802.11ac WiFi capable before purchasing (not all phones have this capability).
– Easy to fly. Optical flow position hold automatically maintains the drone’s position in a steady hover so that you can focus on taking video or photos.
– Barometer and ultrasonic sensor altitude hold capability.
– IR gun sensor for battle mode flying.
– Also includes headless mode, G sensor mode, auto takeoff, auto landing, and hand launch capability.
– 720p 30fps HD video camera.
– 3GB onboard memory storage eliminates lag and frame dropping from recorded video. Stored video can be downloaded via WiFi downloading to your phone, or by micro USB cable to your computer.
– Altitude geofence. Recommend that beginners keep its setting at less than 5 meters to take advantage of the optical flow sensor (optical flow position hold only works up to about 5 meters altitude).
– Quadcopter is controlled using the MiDroneMini app available on Play here https://goo.gl/qbC7Ba or iTunes here https://goo.gl/Ak6Mfs
– Bluetooth capability for controlling via a Bluetooth game controller.
– Proprietary 3.8V 920mah LiHV battery.
– Requires 802.11ac WiFi. Make sure that your phone is 802.11ac capable before purchasing.
– There’s always room for video jello 😉
– Camera photo stills are video frame grabs.
– Sorry that I couldn’t figure out how to demonstrate G sensor control. It’s just not very intuitive.
– No electronic image stabilization (EIS). But for those that want to compare this to the EIS Tello, keep in mind that the Tello does not have onboard video storage of the MITU. The Tello’s recorded video is transmitted over WiFi, with resulting WiFi lag and frame dropping in Tello video. So neither the Tello nor the MITU are currently optimum for video. But with a little more Xiaomi/Ryze development effort, both of these can be improved to be something special.
