C-FLY Faith Mini: 230gr 4K drone under $200

C-FLY Faith Mini

The C-FLY Faith Mini follows the success of DJI’s MINI series. It features the same compact size, and weighs just 230 grams, making it regulation friendly. It has a collapsible design and measures 142 X 84 X 57 mm with folded arms.

Intended for aerial videos, Faith Mini comes equipped with a 3-axis and a 4K camera. It allows recording 3840×2160 (4K) with 15fps or 2716×1524 (2.7k) with 25fps. The max bitrate is 25Mbps and can accept up to 128GB micro SD cards.

The Faith Mini has an advertised flight time of up to 26 minutes, but taking into consideration the drone’s weight and the 2S/2100mah battery, you can expect to get closer to 18-23 minutes of flight.

Thanks to the fail-safe return to home (RTH) function, the C-FLY Faith Mini drone will return autonomously to the take-off point in case of remote controller signal loss or low flight battery voltage.

Price and availability

The Faith Mini can be ordered from Banggood for $199 with one battery or $239 with two flight batteries. This price includes a set of spare propellers, a charger, and a storage bag. Since April, you can also order this camera drone also from RcGoing for $184.99 with one battery or for $255.99 with three batteries.
