Hubsan recently launched its latest GPS enabled 4K drone, the Zino 2. Compared to its predecessors (H117s and Zino Pro), it has longer flight time, extended range, and better camera. While the older ZINOs is powered by 3S LIPO packs, the new second-generation Zino2 works with 4S batteries.
The advertised battery life of the Hubsan Zino 2 is a maximum of 33 minutes in optimum conditions (no wind and gentle acceleration). This is the best flight time we’ve seen to date from a consumer drone under $400. The Zino 2 LiPo pack features 4 cells and 3800 mAh capacity. As charging time takes more than 3 hours, I think is worth investing in a spare battery.
Like the DJI’s intelligent flight battery, Hubsan’s battery also has 4 LED indicators. They can show the charging state of the LIPO pack without loading it into the drone.
Like the DJI Mavic’s intelligent flight battery, FiMI X8SE battery also has 4 LED indicators. They can show the charging state of the battery. In very cold days, it is highly recommended to warm up the battery pack before the flight.
