The Hubsan Zino Mini SE drone comes with many impressive features. If you are in a hurry to read, here is a sneak peek into some of them:
- 5 mile/9KM flight range

Hubsan is the home of different types of drones. For instance, they have affordable drones for beginners and they have advanced drones that you can use for aerial shooting.
For years, this Chinese drone manufacturer has been making drones for all budgets, needs and uses. Sometime back, we wrote a review of the Hubsan Zino 2 drone, which comes with a long transmission and flight distance. It also comes with a 4K camera, which makes it useful for semi-professional video work.
Back to our drone of the moment, could the Hubsan Zino Mini SE be the answer to the Mavic Mini or the DJI Mini 2?
That’s what we are going to find out in the upcoming sections.

If you are looking for an excellent flying camera, this DJI Mini 3 Pro review is for you. This is the newest addition in the DJI mini drones stable.
Compared to the Mini 2 before it, the Mini 3 Pro is a great improvement. Where its predecessors lacked vital features such as obstacle avoidance, this one comes with it, making it one of the safest small drones to fly.
Even with all the features, this drone still weighs less than 250g so you will not need to register it with your civil aviation authority before you fly it.
This drone comes with so many good things. They include long distance flight, longer flight time from battery, incredible flight performance, and many automated flight modes.
The only downside you will find with this mini quadcopter is that it is the most expensive in the stable. Costing several hundreds of dollars, you will feel the dent on your wallet, but the experience will be totally worth it.
In the package, there is no USB cable for charging the battery. You will have to use your smartphone charging cable.

You can never be too old to earn your wings. Thus, if you are looking for the best beginner adult drone to get into the drone hobby, you are in the right place. The Holy Stone HS720G drone is fit for users of all ages. It has a 2-axis Gimbal to stabilize the camera. You will get a sound footing in aerial shooting when you start using this drone.
While you will not find the Holy Stone brand name featuring in the top 10, 20 or even 30 drone makers in the world, they still make good sub $100 drones. Many of these are suitable for beginners. After learning how to fly on the small HS drones, you can go for the bestseller brands in the market such as Hubsan or Airobotics.
While the HS720G drone has many features, it also has some downsides that you should know about. For instance, this quadcopter comes with one battery only, and it takes too long to charge. The charging time indicated in the user manual is not correct.
Another downside is that there seems to be no accessories for this aircraft. Take good care of it because it is hard to find spare blades or spare anything. Also, the accessories of the closely related models from the same brand name do not work with this one.
To know whether you will get good value for your money, read the features and flight functions for the HS720G quadcopter in the upcoming sections.

In its description, the manufacturer says that the KFPLAN KF616 comes with a 6K HD camera.
However, that might not be entirely true because the photo resolution is 4096 by 2160 and the video resolution is 2048 by 1080P.
Once you get to see the other features that this drone comes with, you will overlook that small downside easily. For instance, it comes with an 8K infrared obstacle avoidance system. It can detect obstacles from above, below, left or right. This makes the KF616 one of the safest mini drones to buy and fly.
Whether you are an advanced or a beginner pilot, this quadcopter gives great value for money. You can get it as your first drone and you will never outgrow it because it has some very good features.
This mini quadcopter is available for shipping with one, two or three batteries. Even with three batteries, it is still not expensive at all. It costs about $60. It is best to buy it with three batteries for extra flight and fun time.

JJRC is a respected dronemaker that has been making all types of hobby drones for many years.
They have basic quadcopters for beginners and they have some with advanced features. The JJRC X21 is one of the latter since it comes with omni-directional obstacle avoidance.
In their lineup, you are going to find quadcopters such as the JJRC X19, JJRC A353GW, and JJRC X16 which we reviewed earlier.
The X21 is small, sleek and well built. It is packed with dual cameras, brushless motors, 5-inch foldable props and many other features.
Another of the most notable features is the camera. This drone comes with a high quality 4K camera. If you are looking to get your foot into aerial shooting, you can start on this beautiful drone.
Every drone has its flipside. This one is not any different because the remote control uses 2 AA batteries. This looks like an advanced hobby drone with obstacle avoidance, long flight time and many more. We feel that a remote controller with an integrated rechargeable battery would have been much better.
Another thing is the low takeoff weight of this drone. It is about 165g, which is too light and might be hard to trim in the wind. However, as you read along, you will find out how good the flight performance is because of the brushless motors.
