Xiaomi is soon to release a new drone the FIMI A3. The Xiaomi Fimi A3 is not is a folding version as are many of the other new models coming to market but is packed with features that can only be found in more expensive models.
This drone uses propellers with a length of 7.5 inches, with a pitch of 3.6 inches. The maximum speed you can reach horizontally is 18 m / s, with 6 m / s maximum climbing speed and 5 m / s maximum speed descending. The FIMI A3 has dimensions of 285 x 229 x 69 mm, with a diagonal of 323 mm, confirming that it is smaller than the Mi Drone 4K. In terms of weight, 560 g is announced, which is a very interesting value considering that the new legislation that regulates the use of drones will require civil liability insurance with more than 900 grams, where it will be excluded from this obligation.
Being the aerial imaging the main function of this drone, it is equipped with a camera stabilized by a gimbal of 3 axes, positioned very similar to the DJI Spark, with a capacity of the recording of video 1080p at 30 fps and capture of photographs with 8 MP.
As far as video recording is concerned, the maximum resolution of 1080p “knows” us little, since we expected that a device launched in late 2018 had the capacity to record 4K video, however it is understandable considering the price.
With respect to flight characteristics, the FIMI A3 has GPS-assisted flight and is remotely controlled by FPV up to a maximum distance of 1000 meters and maximum flight height of 500 meters. The autonomy is a fantastic 25 minutes, guaranteed by a 3-cell battery of 2000 mAh / 22.2 Wh running at 11.1 V, with the standard charging port. This autonomy, to be confirmed, is excellent for this range of drones.
The FIMI A3 drone of Xiaomi also has several automatic flight modes, which allow for easy image capture. Functions such as Follow Me are available, which allows you to set and follow a person or object; Orbit, which traces a circumference around a predefined point; Dronie, who makes an upward motion as he moves away from the setpoint; Headless, where the drone no longer has a front, moving horizontally in the direction in which the control is moved; and of course, the mandatory function of any drone other than a toy, Return to Home, which lacks presentations.
Very interesting is the radio control which has an integrated 4.3 “display with 480×272 resolution. No need to connect a smartphone and start App, turn on and fly. It has a built-in DVR that records on SDcard with a resolution of 720 x 480, there is also an A / V output to connect an external monitor, video-glasses or other devices.
