There was a lot of speculation and hype for this drone, but everything’s gone, really quiet all of a sudden let’s talk about this today. So we have discussed about this drone on the channel before and we’re all excited, because on paper the spec looks brilliant: the 48 megapixel camera with six times, zoom 4k 30, and then it gets better. You’Ve got 200, apparently megabits per second, a 10 kilometer range, a flight time of 40 minutes, 249 grams we’ll get on to that and then obviously the front and back sound sensors obstacle avoidance with some kind of active track. It sounds fantastic, doesn’t it but it’s the most bizarre, build up to any product launch we’ve ever seen in the last few years of any decent drone that’s been marketed, they put some photos onto their website, so we could see this drone and the controller they’ve showed Us some details of the actual interface and how the app works, and we all think and want this drone to be fantastic. He then allowed you then, to pre order the drone, but without giving it any estimated time on when the drone was going to ship, but on the website. You could see some spec and details about the drone, but they were asking you to put money up front and then just get the drone whenever you know wednesday’s going to be released. But then we had a live stream, hopefully to see some more details of the drone, the drone flying, maybe the obstacle avoidance demos.
We saw nothing, it was let’s, be frank, a terrible live stream. The drone actually crashes live on camera, as you can see in the bottom left hand corner there into the stand, so we didn’t get to see anything in relation to this drone um in any of the flying or the spec, or anything to do with this. Aside from these two just giving away 10 apparent drones all the time and then the livestream pretty much ends, but from looking at this again it does get worse. The 249 grams of this drone is obviously the big highlight, but they actually weigh and demonstrate it weighing an iphone 6 plus on the scale here. So let’s just have a look at this now, so the iphone 6 plus is put on the scales and as the camera zooms in, we see that the weight of the iphone 6 plus it’s 167.2 grams. So this on paper looks right, they’re demonstrating that and then what they’re going to do, they’re then going to put the drone on and then the drone weighs 249.2 grams. Just remember those numbers there now let’s go on to the official apple website and we’ll. Just look at more about the iphone 6 plus, so the iphone 6 plus on the official apple website weighs 172 grams, but on the hubsan scales it weighs 167.2 grams, which means that’s a 4.8 gram difference they’re actually saying it weighs less. This is going to be a big concern and problem, because, if it’s 4.
8 grams a difference, that means that the same scales which weighed the hubs in a mini pro 4.8 gram difference would mean that that drone actually weighs 254 grams now apple on the official website Are not going to get that number wrong. So, although getting all that technology in this drone to be 254 grams is remarkable and it’s fantastic, that does leave a big and quite frank, huge problem for those people who want the drone to be 250 grams or less, for instance, depending on which country you’re flying This in you might not have the same restrictions. You might not need certain qualifications. So if you are wanting this to compare to dji mini 2, which is 249 grams or 238 grams, is what the extra mini 2 is. Then you know this is over. You cannot then fly this in the same areas: restriction free. So this is a big deal so it’s very concerning that, looking from them scales but from then you can still now and take whatever look. You can go on the website and you can go on the main website and then you can just go down to the bottom here. The xenomini pro 4′ pounds in the uk – and you can select this. This comes with one battery it’s a 64 gigabyte model. Again, they didn’t talk about whether this is built in memory. Can you put an sd card in or not that wasn’t mentioned on the live stream? Two batteries it’s five, five, nine and it goes all the way to 1’9 for the thermal version.
If somebody needs a thermal camera on the drone, i don’t think police and military will be using this, but you never know, but that said you can physically go out and buy this on the website today for a pre sale and if we look under pre sale. It’S now saying some details relating to the shipping, so it’s saying the estimated time is going to be the beginning of july, which is only a couple of weeks from when this is actually now being recorded. You can also get the thermal version as well towards the end of july, and then you can then click on it, and then you can add it to your basket and away you go and check out what what’s actually sounding them alarm bells for me is that Since all this advertisement lead up to this live stream back at the start of june, there has been nothing mentioned on the hubsan official youtube channel. There’S been no videos on that. The live stream is still actually on there. If you wish to watch that, if you go into some of their social media as well, there is nothing at all been updated in relation to any tweets or replies or any normal tweets from hubsan advertising. This drone there’s absolutely been nothing it’s, as if the whole project has been either put back or cancelled if there was couldn’t be released in the next couple of weeks as as much as they were smashing these advertisements out, you know, building up this live stream that’s.
What they should do as any marketing company but there’s, been nothing since june, but they’re saying it’s going to be released in the next couple of weeks. I would not go out and pre order this. If this comes out, then brilliant i’ve asked them um several times and there’s been no reply as well. The whole thing has gone so quiet what they should have done after that live stream performance. He should have done another live stream either a week or a few days later, show us the drone and show some of the features and we’ll all be really excited about going flying this. But everything is just alarm bells sounding. I want this drone to be great. It’D be fantastic to actually be able to get a drone with all them features built into it in such a small, tiny compact package like this, but for me it’s just too risky when it’s actually out and we can get it tested and flown, and you can Actually buy it from somewhere, where, potentially you know, it’s going to be arriving the next day, the next couple of days at the moment, you know you’re paying 400 or 500 pound dollars, and you just have no clue when you’re going to be getting this drone. If, at all so be careful out there, let me know guys the people who have pre ordered this.
