Could this be a dji mini 2 killer in this video we’ll? Discuss Music, hey guys, welcome to droning on live and, as mentioned, hubsan rita does to a little teaser early this morning or late last night, whichever time zone you might be in and we’ve been expecting this one for a while, we didn’t quite know what it was. We now know that it is potentially a dji mini 2 killer. Now i hate using that term killer because we actually don’t know anything about it. Yet but we’re going to have a look at it in this video we’re, also going to step through the teaser and look at some of the specifications that are being shown to us from hubsan. For this drone we’re also going to talk about. Does this drone actually exist yet because what we don’t want to do is get hopes up before the drone is actually there just want to say a quick shout out to people in the chat drone viral cove action um as far ahmed feel good, danny john dukes Josh spike drone vile yeah. Thank you very much everybody for joining and feel good danny, of course, as well. So hubsan have a great history in drones. One of my first drones was actually a hub zone, and so i’ve got really high expectations and really high hopes for this one as well. This teaser trailer arrived late last night this morning and we’re going to step through it right now.
In fact, i think probably the first thing that we’ll do is actually show you the whole trailer in full and then we’ll actually skip back to some of the sections. So here we go with the full trailer. Hopefully you’ll get audio from this as well Music. So there we go. You like my dancing midway through that the music was quite jolly wasn’t it it wasn’t, particularly teaser music. It was quite um, yeah, vibrant and lively, i would say so that’s the teaser trailer that we have. What we’ll now do is quickly step through it and have a look at some of the steps uh, some of the specs, that we were just shown there now. One thing you might have noticed, or certainly the first thing i actually thought of, is: where is the drone? This teaser doesn’t actually show it all. We see there is a 3d rendering of it. That to me suggests that this is very, very, very, very early. Probably too early hub sam, i i prefer to see this kind of trailer when you can be comfortable uh in the fact that, probably at that point, everything’s already been actually manufactured developed designed tested. Otherwise, you end up in a scenario like extreme flyers, with micro drone 4, which has just been a fantasy for the last two years, which is failing to deliver to anybody and i’m a bit worried that this might be a little bit like that, where this is A concept boasting incredible specifications, which almost seem a bit too good to be true, but anyway, let’s step through them.
Keep that in mind that this drone doesn’t actually exist. Yet as far as we know so, it’s called the xeno mini pro now. First of all, the camera sensor size it’s a cmos image sensor, which obviously is good. It means you get good um capability of exposure between the the air between brightness and darkness, the 1.1 one over 1.3 inch camera sensor. Now this i’m, not a camera guy, but that i believe, is slightly larger than the mini 2 sensor, if not quite a bit larger correct me. If i’m wrong in the chat um, the mini 2 has a quarter inch sensor, one over 1.3 inch is bigger. I believe so, if that’s true, then great. However, do you remember there are different degrees of camera sensor? Some some drones out. There are boasting a much bigger camera sensor than others uh with a much higher megabit rate, but actually the quality of the image is terrible. So it all depends on the quality it’s, not the size of it it’s the quality 48 megapixels um. Now that again is quite a claim that would match the mavic air 2, but again it’s, whether they’re 48, valuable megapixels or not. In other words, you know it’s. Fine having millions of pixels in your image, but if the quality of the actual overall image is not very good, then it doesn’t matter how many millions of pixels your um camera sensor sensor is capable of the output is still going to be pretty poor.
Um then we’ve got 2.4 um mixed large pixel again i’m, not a camera guy um super large aperture 1.85 is a very, very low aperture. That sounds, i mean obviously it’s fixed it’s, not variable aperture. In theory this means it will have nice low light capability, but again that doesn’t sound particularly viable to me. I know: we’ve got kavachin in the chat, you’re a camera guy. Please do comment on some of these camera specifications and tell me what you think: definitely um. So next we’ve got let’s, have a look six times, zoom now that’s quite an interesting one as well six times zoom is not going to be optical. We can say that for sure on a drone that weighs this much and we’ll come on to the weight in a bit it’s going to be a clearly going to be a digital zoom or a sensor crop. But again this is going to be a budget drone. This is not going to be a premium drone like a dji drone hubsan have always been targeting largely the um the budget market sector. So if we are looking at six times, it’s probably going to be six times digital in app, we will see again quite a claim if that’s possible let’s see what we’ve got next hdr mode nice again, it has hdr has to be implemented really really well else. I’Ve found that it’s just unusable when the um osmo action came out with its hdr feature.
I tested it, pre released and i remember the hdr was not actually particularly great, but hopefully this will be better, as treetop flyer says, in the chat. Hubsan also has terrible camera lens geometry, light flares and surface glare everywhere, valid point it’s, not just about the sensor it’s about the glass as well in front of that sensor, just like here, i’m, using a canon as my camera here. If i was using my little logitech webcam, you wouldn’t be seeing the same kind of clarity. Although my face probably looks better on the webcam, because it’s slightly blurry anyway um cub action, chuck says three quarter inch sensor wow. Did i calculate that right? Yeah? I’M. I’M. Not sure it i’ve actually never heard of a one over 1.3 inch camera sensor before i did wonder if it’s a typo, i wonder if they mean a quarter inch sensor. I wouldn’t be surprised. 4K 30 frames per second that’s going to please everybody there’ll be some out there. Moaning ooh there’s, no 4k, 60 frames per second, not that those people even know why they want 60 frames per second 4k. The people moaning about it, but there will be some out there that will complain about that h265 that’s quite standard these days. Now, if you have an older laptop shooting in h.265, can cause some editing pain because h265 requires slightly higher processing ability. Dji drones give you the option to shoot between 264 and 265 and if you have an older computer, sometimes it’s better to shoot 264.
. The advantage of 265 really the image quality, is pretty much identical between the two, but with h.265 you get better compression of the file and therefore you lose less so you retain quality in in the picture. Um and hevc 200 megabits per second wow that’s, pretty that’s. Pretty fast um jello man in the chat says: what do you think about the hdr of the air 2s um? Interestingly, the air 2s does not have a hdr mode, but you can shoot in hlg video, which is an alternative to h d log and regular video i’ve actually not tested it yet um. So we will check that let’s see what else we’ve got here um now. This must be their equivalent of ocusync it’s called cleese sync, lease version 3.0 now they’re on version 3.0, i’ve, never even heard of version two and one but it’s claiming 1080p at 30 frames per second live stream, that’s on par, i believe, with ocusync 3.. You can tell that they’ve designed this uh drone to really combat the capabilities of the mini 2 and beat it in every single segment right now. But you know whether that’s actually viable depends on the drone and right now. As i said at the start of this, video i’ve not seen the drone here yet now. What we are seeing actually at this point in the video paused is the app we can see a little bit of the app here. So we’ve got satellite acquisition across the top looks like we’ve got controller power.
We’Ve got uh stream power battery various settings of compass, the zoom control here and various other elements, but again this could just be a mock up. I don’t believe that this is a real clip from the drone. I don’t believe this is a real screenshot. I think it’s a mock up for marketing purposes. We really really need to see the drone let’s go on here and see what else we get so again. Uh in terms of the transmission 10 kilometers range, i think, that’s on par with ocusync 2, not ocusync 3, which boasts 12 kilometers fcc wireless bandwidth, 20 megabits per second that’s plenty. I mean you don’t need 20 megabits per second for 1080p that’s for sure um again it. You know they take these statistics or these specs with a pinch of salt until the drone exists and until they’ve tested it and they know that it’s viable and that they can even do it. Then these are just concepts at this point. Look just like micro, drone, 4. Everything you see about micro, drone 4 is a concept until the drone actually exists, and so far every time we see anything out of micro, drone, 4 it’s. Nowhere near the promise specification, so i really hope hobson can do this. I really do, but it might be a little bit optimistic uh. What have we got? Next? We have maximum flight time, 40 minutes and only 249 grams, so first of all flight time of 40 minutes, and it weighs the same as the mini 2.
. Now, if we consider that dji are the market leader and they are there’s, no doubt about it in consumer drones right now, dji are the market leader. They worked for years to develop a drone like the mini and the mini 2, which weighed 250 grams 249 and was capable of pretty much everything the consumers wanted and expected. So over 30 minutes flight time, 4k, video, etc, etc. Hubsan are claiming that they can do far more in terms of specification and add an extra 10 minutes onto the flight time beating what the market leader spent years trying to do. If hubsan really do pull this off, i will be shocked. 40 minutes flight time. 250 grams. That means that for most company countries that now have these regulations around registration that’s, going to please everybody but again yeah. We will see not only that the mini 2 and the mini its predecessor have no obstacle avoidance, whereas they’re claiming they’ve got front, rear and downward obstacle avoidance with vision, obstacle avoidance, not infrared, actual cameras, vision optical, i mean hubsan. I hope you’re not setting yourselves up for fall here. This is quite quite an optimistic goal to set. If i was planning this project, i would be raising a risk register right now and saying, are you? Are you sure? Are you sure you can commit to this? Because when they push a trailer out there to people like me and the community and the 60 people that are watching, this live right now, you’re setting a very, very high expectation, and if you can’t match that when you release it, then you really really going to Upset people it’s sometimes better to over, perform than to release an expectation and underperform better to impress than to disappoint hey henrik thanks for joining uh late to the party.
Don’T worry, you can re watch this stream later on so significant obstacle avoidance capabilities, really impressive, it’s. Also going to have ai tracking now people really really missed active track on the mini. You know, i think the reason that dji didn’t incorporate active track on the mini is not because the drone’s not capable of it, but i think because they they didn’t, want the risk of the mini flying autonomously with flying blind. It has no obstacle avoidance. It only has underside obstacle avoidance and even then that’s ultrasonics or ir infrared it’s, not therefore capable of actually knowing quick enough that it’s going to hit something, because this is only ir. So you know the only reason that the mini has that on the underside is so that it knows when it’s coming down to the ground, and it knows when to slow down. These are not for obstacle, avoidance, they’re, just simply to help with landing and obviously the camera is there for hovering. It’S vps system it’s, not really there for obstacle avoidance, so dji didn’t want the risk of people flying this autonomously with active track and it effectively flying blind and crashing into things. This new drone from hubsan apparently has active track. They call it atvt tracking if they can pull this off, then wow yeah. What else has it got i mean? Does this thing make your dinner as well challenge the limit and forge ahead? I mean: could there be a more appropriate slogan on this drone i mean i should they should have had the word dreams and fantasy there, because this is the the perfect drone.
If they can pull this off, it will be fantastic. Jay bird drone just said in the chat: xeno 2 was a huge disappointment, yeah, and that was the second generation of their flagship consumer drone and it did disappoint. Drone in nature said i don’t believe hubsan on this i’m just they’re just trying to create some hype. Gary says it all sounds like marketing, uh, bs, wishlist, yeah, josh spike, says hubsan promises a lot, perhaps too much. We will see how do they conclude this teaser with the logo, of course, so that is the xeno mini 2 and they really really do this. Can they really pull this off now? A few things missing from here are the price, bearing in mind that the mini 2 retails at about what is it 400 or so it’s got to be the same price or or cheaper if you’re looking to buy a drone, if you, if you don’t, know anything About drones, then you’ll compare dji and hubsan and you’ll probably buy the cheapest. If you know about drones and they’re, the same price you’ll probably still buy the dji, because we know that it can do what it promises that it can do. Generally, apart from land in the sea, occasionally um, even though these specifications are fantastic, there’s going to be a lot of hesitation, i think from people until they see people reviewing it. I really really hope that hubsan will think about if they manufacture this, sending it out to people.
I would love to get my hands on this. I will buy it hopsan. If you, let me, have one pre release: i’ll pay for it with my own hard earned money to get it first, get it early, so i can review it for all these people watching right now, because you’re sending hell of a expectation here – and i i really Think this needs to be tested before you potentially disappoint. Um, alias in the chat says. Does it have geofencing don’t know um to have geofencing? You have to maintain a database hubsan aren’t in the market of maintaining flight and aviation databases like that, like dji are so i i highly highly doubt that um we will see, we will see so price is missing. The other thing that’s missing is the release date. There’S no detail in here about a release date at the moment: nope absolutely nothing there. We have the specification list, which is interesting, of course, but no release date. It could be this year. It could be next year, as i mentioned there’s – not actually any picture of a drone here. So as far as i can can extract from this they’ve not built it yet um. You know i was hoping to see some real footage of a drone here i was hoping to see a a real marketing promo of people launching it from their hand and flying it around themselves and some actual onboard footage. But this is just a simulation here at the moment.
Uh these these the zed. Does it have 2.4 gig band? Well, it will definitely have 2.4 gig um in some respects, whether it’s a video transmission or the control transmission, whether it has five or 5.8 gig as well. We don’t know yet we don’t know anything about that. Anyway, we will see comment below on what you think about this we’ve had some great comments in the chat. Thank you, everybody for your comments and comment in the chat as well. Would you buy this? In fact, everybody watching right now comment live in the chat right now. Would you buy it just write, yes or no, very, very interesting to see the the feedback there and what we’ll do later on as well is we’ll have a live poll, and if we see any more of this from hubsan, i hope that they’ll release some more Videos to show us what might be coming out, you know to show us actually. What can this drone do? Does it actually exist? Can we see it flying? Can we see any evidence of it? I hope that we’ll see some video of it a bit of a mixed response in the chat so far, we’ve got no unsure. No, yes, we’ve got quite a lot of people watching, but maybe not so many in the chat so anyway.

If you’re interested also just a bit of a sneak preview, we will be having a giveaway, probably this weekend of liftoff licenses. So if you guys like flying the fpv, and you want to get better, then i’ve got some liftoff licenses, plus one of their some licenses to give away their brand new dlc as well downloadable extra pack, if you’re interested in winning those hit, subscribe. Details of that giveaway will be coming. We just finished a giveaway where i’m giving away two brand new air, 2s or mavic air 2 batteries direct from dji and i’ll be announcing the winners of that later today, towards the end of the day on the community. Tab of the droning on channel keep an eye on that anyway. Thank you very much for watching guys. If this new drone arrives it’s and it does everything it says on the tin it’s going to be incredible, come on hub sam, you can do it.
