F3 Pigeon Pro GPS 4K drone: First Mavic Air 2 clone?

F3 Pigeon Pro

Despite the fact that are still 4 days till Mavic Air 2 official launch, the first clones are ready for orders. Even the F3 Pigeon Pro follows the Air2’s design in many details, it can’t be considered as a real alternative! Featuring brushed motors it is only a fun toy compared to any professional-grade DJI drone.

In addition to the 4K main camera, there is a second tiny camera on the belly of the aircraft. FPV view can freely be switched between these two cameras. Furthermore, you can remotely adjust the frontal camera’s tilt angle.

F3 Pigeon Pro features a fail-safe auto return to home. In case of low battery or remote controller signal loss, the aircraft will automatically return to the take-off point.

According to the advertised specs, the 7.4V/1800mAh battery allows up to 25 minutes of flight time, about 10 minutes less than the Mavic Air 2 has. With a top speed of 30km/h, the drone can fly a total distance of 8 KM (to be clear this is not the max control range!).

    • I mean that with a speed of 30km/h and battery life of 25min you can fly about 8KM. Range of the transmitter is only 500 meters.
      Yes, you have right, the Mavic Air 2 has 8-10KM control range.
