This is FIMI MINI 3, Xiaomi’s new drone

FIMI, Xiaomi’s drone brand, has a new member in its catalog. The FIMI MINI 3 has support for 4K/60fps video recording and 12x digital zoom, allowing you to capture sharp images with great detail.

The drone uses SoLink to transmit its content, a high-definition digital image transmission technology, and achieves high-definition real-time transmission up to a distance of 9 km. As for its physical appearance, it boasts an elegant, portable and ultra-light design that allows us to move it anywhere without any inconvenience, as it weighs practically the same as the smartphone we always carry with us: 250 grams.

On the other hand, its new intelligent battery management system achieves a flight time of 32 minutes on a single charge, although it is also available with a dual battery to enjoy a long flight time. When the battery runs out, the user can easily charge the drone via the USB-C port, which supports fast charging up to 27W, which means it won’t need to be plugged in well in advance before taking flight.

Finally, it is important to know that the three-axis mechanical gimbal allows automatic shooting from different angles, ensuring smooth and stable aerial images during high-speed flights, regardless of whether the wind is blowing strongly. In addition, it has several shooting modes: portrait mode to adapt it to devices with a vertical screen, such as the mobile phone, and queue mode to perform smart flights and mirror flights.
