The Xiaomi FIMI A3 is a product of collaboration between the Xiaomi and the FIMI. With the Xiaomi smart ecosystem, the latest drone opens up window to whole new possibilities and also establish the product in the category of smart and more compact drones.
The latest Xiaomi FIMI A3 gets its design inspiration from its predecessor the Mi Drone 4K. However being the latest drone, the device features some latest advancements including the camera in the background and without its “landing gear”.
Being a budget drone, the Xiaomi FIMI A3 features are not the same as of top-of-the-range drone. However, if you are a beginner, the latest device provides more value to the user when compared to any other drone in this price range, less than $250.
One of the main selling features of the device includes its ability to take aerial shots using a camera stabilized by a gimbal of 3 axes. The camera position is quite similar to that of DJI Spark and can record videos in 1080p at 30 fps and capture photographs with its 8 MP camera.
As far as the video quality is concerned, the Xiaomi FIMI A3 can record videos in the maximum resolution of 1080p. We were hoping that the latest device will be able to record 4K video, however keeping its price in mind this is entirely understandable.
As for flight characteristics, the FIMI A3 features a full-fledged GPS-assisted flight and can be easily controlled using the remote controller up to a maximum distance of 1000 meters and maximum flight height of 500 meters. The latest device provides a fantastic 25 minutes of flight time using a 3-cell battery of 2000 mAh / 22.2 Wh operating at 11.1 V, with the standard charging port. According to our records, this battery life is best for budget drones.
With the Xiaomi FIMI A3, you will also get propellers with a length of 7.5 inches, and with a pitch of 3.6 inches. The maximum speed you can reach with the drone horizontally is 18 m / s, with 6 m / s maximum climbing speed and 5 m / s maximum speed descending.
Dimensions & Weight
The Xiaomi FIMI A3 features a dimension of 285 x 229 x 69 mm, with a diagonal of 323 mm, making it one of the most compact drones in the market. It is, however, more prominent than DJI Spark, so it does not allow portability at this level.
The latest device weights 560 g, which is really great considering 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.
Overall the Xiaomi FIMI A3 with all its features is going to attract many buyers looking for a compact drone at a budget price. The latest drones features including flight time, intelligent functions, the screen on the remote controller, shooting videos with 1080p resolution and its ability of non-collapsible, makes it one of the best drone you can get right now.
