Earlier this year, Xiaomi crowdfunded its new Funsnap iDol Smart Drone With AI Gestures for 899 Yuan ($132). Today, this product is now officially available for purchase and the price remains unchanged. This product has already been listed in many third-party stores (for a higher price as usual) but you can be sure that the commencement of this official sale means that the pricing in third-party stores will begin to drop. The Xiaomi Funsnap iDol Smart Drone is designed with an aerodynamic mini body with a dimension of 226 x 268 x 43 mm before folding and 226 x 144 x 48 mm after folding.
This drone is equipped with a 1800mAh lithium polymer battery and it can fly for 10 minutes in a windless environment. The maximum resolution of the camera is 1080p and for videos, it reaches 1080p/30fps with a tilt angle of -90 degrees to 30 degrees. One of the highlights of this product is that it supports AI gesture features based on deep learning, which can intelligently identify user gesture commands, such as taking photos, landing, etc., without APP manipulation.
In addition to the AI features, it also supports more gameplay such as one-button take-off/landing, vertical sky/45 degree gradation/360-degree change flight, smart follow-up, headless mode, and real-time image transmission (720p). In terms of safety, the Xiaomi Funsnap iDol smart drone supports optical flow positioning and barometer/ultrasonic height setting.
