Hubsan Zino pro

Hubsan Zino pro

An alternative to DJI drone with fascinating overall performance for its price range.

Our verdict:

     Hubsan has always been the brand to go for budget drones. So their newcomer Hubsan Zino pro is a winner. If you are an aspiring photographer/cinematographer and want to excel in drone photography, this Hubsan Zino pro is a recommended choice. It has a 3-axis gimbal and is capable of taking 4K UHD video footage with amazing clarity. What makes this drone's camera exceptional is that it has a removable lens, and you can also equip it with filters. 

     The flight time is 23 minutes, which is a reasonable time. The flight distance extends for 4Kms so you can have smooth coverage from a distance. If there is no interference, the Hubsan Zino Pro has a range of about 1Km. If you are in the city, there might be some WiFi disturbance, affecting its transmission range. With this semi-professional drone, the Hubsan has created a market for itself, overshadowing the DJI drones. 

Some of the significant special features are:

  1. 4K panoramic shot: The rotation angle ranges from 90-360 degrees.
  2. Accurate GPS and 5g WiFi
  3. Four flight modes: Line fly mode, orbit mode, headless mode, Waypoints.

Why we chose the Hubsan Zino pro drone:

  • RTH (Return To Home) feature.
  • 5G WiFi and 1Km FPV coverage.
  • Removable lens and filters.
  • On low battery, this drone automatically returns home.
  • This drone comes with dual GPS technology. 

Things to note:

  • The transmitter quality is not great.
  • This drone doesn't have obstacle sensors.

Design and build quality:

     Many drones in the market try to imitate the DJI design and end up being a disappointment. This is where the Hubsan Zino Pro's design stands out. Its compact design and built quality make the drone easy to carry around and to store in small backpacks. It is just the size of an iPhone 11 and weighs around 1.54 pounds. This drone is overall lightweight and compact and a great start for mini drone lovers. 

     Unlike other ordinary drones, this Hubsan Zino Pro uses brushless motors, which results in smooth and stable flight and longer flight time. A cover protects the drone's camera, so your drone camera will be safe during travel and outdoors. The color of the drone is attractive. You can choose between a black or white body. Overall the design and build quality is apt for the price range and a great start for drone enthusiasts.


    One of the Hubsan Zino pro's notable features is that it comes with a full HD 4K camera. Anyone who is a fan of aerial shots and photography will be impressed with its 4K camera. This professional-level camera is used for both high-quality images and videos. Early days, a normal 4K drone would have cost you a fortune. But in recent times, you can get some of the best 4K drones at a low price due to technological advancements. This drone also comes with a 3-axis gimbal, which reduces the shaking while taking pictures or videos and distortion of any kind. 

     The wide-angle lens of the camera allows you to take images from different angles of your requirements. You can also get an ND filter to reduce the amount of sunlight that falls on your lens. The camera can shoot 4K video at 30FPS (frames per second) and 2.7K video at 60FPS. The higher the frame rate, the clearer the results will be. High frame rate videos can be used for creating slow-motion effects seamlessly. Make sure you fly the drone in good weather condition because bad weather can affect the video transmission. 

Drone's performance:

      When it comes to performance, this drone delivers what it promises. The flight performance is smooth and seamless, making it easier for us to capture the moments. The sensors and accelerometer work hand in hand with the GPS to give you a stable flight. Since the drone is weightless and compact, it cannot withstand very windy weather conditions, but a little wind doesn't affect its flight performance. The drone comes with brushless motors, so the speed of the flight is not an issue. The maximum speed the drone can reach is 37 mph.

     This maximum speed is obtained due to its brushless motor design. One of the useful features of this drone is that it comes with auxiliary vision technology. If your RTH feature does not work in time, this auxiliary vision technology will help your drone land at the nearest safe point. The image tracking, waypoints, and feline fly mode enhance the performance of the drone. The 3000mAh battery gives you a fair amount of flight time. 

Final overview:

     To sum it all up, Hubsan Zino Pro is an excellent drone covering all the features of the best budget drone category. This drone delivers for its price range and is one of the best drones for beginners and professionals alike. If you are looking for an alternate for DJI drones, this one is for you. If you think DJI doesn't suit your price range, you can choose this drone to give you a good performance. 

     The coveted portable design, cutting-edge technology, and the 4K camera are some of the exciting features to go for this drone. There are many 4K drones out there, but only this drone can deliver the price's quality. The two-color variants both look cool, and you can choose either one of them according to your taste. But in my opinion, the black version looks cool and attractive.

Some alternative for Hubsan Zino Pro:


     Its featherweight (250 gms), equivalent to an average smartphone, DJI Mavic mini, has created a revolution in the RC drone industry. Due to its lightweight, you can fly in Canada and the US without getting aviation permission. It can stay much longer in the air due to its lightweight design, and you can enjoy the flight time for about 30 minutes when fully charged, which is an unbeatable flight time for this price range. 

     But for this price range, you would expect a camera with a 4K resolution. However, Mavic mini is provided with a 12MP camera for still photos and 2.7K resolution for video transmission, which is still pretty good compared to others. To top that, it is also mounted with a 3-axis motorized gimbal, which results in a steady camera movement and Super smooth video footage.
