VIO Positioning High Great Mark: Wannabe Mavic alternative

VIO Positioning High Great Mark drone

After so many new FPV quadcopters, today I will introduce you a new cruising drone with 4K camera, called VIO Positioning High Great Mark. Let’s discover if this $300 drone is a real competitor to the DJI Mavic series (Pro & Air).

Like the Mavic, the High Great Mark also has foldable arms and foldable propellers. Weighting only 200 grams, it can be conveniently carry all daylong. Featuring APP control, does not require a transmitter, only a compatible smartphone.

Based on Qualcomm Snapdragon platform integration and continusous optimization and technology breakthrough makes Mark total weight is just about 200g. No need for drone registration. Mark’s unique VIO technology simplifies the traditional internal structure and 2 cameras are the all sensors Mark carride. Complexity simplifies without doing compass calibration.

Sponosored AD

Instead of a traditional GPS positioning system, the High Great Mark drone adopts some proprietary system called VIO technology. According to the manufacturer’s statement this allows extremely stable hovering (in both, indoor and outdoor environments).

The advanced VIO technology is an innovative positioning way. The VIO technology can replace the traditional optical flow and GPS positioning mode and can easily achieve precise and stable indoor andoutdoor hovering. The VIO technology enables Mark to freely shuttle between indoors and outdoors. Not limited to the GPS signal.

Included with the VIO Positioning Great Mark drone

  • 2s 1300mAh Li-Po battery;
  • Battery charger;
  • Spare propellers;
  • User manual.

Conclusions

Let’s be fair, with WiFi FPV, limited control range and short flight time, this drone can’t be a real alternative of the DJI Mavic Pro, not even for the little DJI Spark. Furthermore, it seems that the High Great VIO Positioning Mark drone does not have a camera gimbal, which will result in shaky aerial footage.

  1. But it can do what a maciv air and pro cannot, it can fly indoors without GPS.

    It has a one axis Gimbal and a 4K camera but uses the 4k to deshake it to 1080p.
    On the otherhand optical position might be better, and less need for 2 axis gimbal.
    It depends of the agility and reaction times, if that axis is really needed.

    There is more though its targeted price is $239 thats a lot cheaper then the quite expensive DJI series.
    I’m not so sure to go for a DJI, i wait till VIO Positioning High Great Mark (soon) gets released.
    Deffinatly this should shake up the drone world visual aided inertial odometry… i think its amazing.
