Remember that package that arrived with 'Unreleased Tech' in? Well long story short that had the brand new Xiro Xplorer Mini in. It's still unreleased here in the UK but I believe you can get your preorders in now or buy it internationally. Although you may have some import charges!
Anyway i've been speaking with Xiro over the last 6 months or so due to using their original Xplorer for all of my drone content on Instagram. So they sent me out the new drone to test out to see what I think.
This drone is marketed as a 'Selfie Drone', in short this means that it's easy and safe to fly for the general user that has minimal experience flying drones. It has some awesome intelligent flight controls that helps you get some great shots as well as a visual positioning system to make indoor flights safer and easier to control.
It isn't competing with the original Xplorer or other drones on the market in terms of cinematic capabilities, which is what I mainly use my drone for. However i'm very interested to see what it can do as I don't always want to get kitted out with the bigger drone so having this tiny foldable drone that weighs only 400 grams could be a major bonus for little trips out.
Here's on of my first test flights with it over some waterfalls. I'm releasing a full review video with more footage directly from it soon.
I've also got an article coming out in next months DroneMag UK (February 2017 issue) so check that out!!!
