The Hubsan Zino Pro was a historic drone for the company. Until that point, Hubsan built mostly toy drones, that is, drones that may have offered some basic GPS functionality, rarely hosting anything more than a 720p camera, and nothing that had potential to stand up to a DJI Mavic series drone.

The initial Zino may not have nailed it, but the Hubsan Zino Pro had a spec sheet that ticks a lot of the right boxes, and the newer yet Zino Pro Plus proved that Hubsan is here to stay.

The Hubsan Zino Pro Plus offers a 4K camera on a 3-axis stabilized, rotating gimbal, flight time that outpaces most drones on the market, a bunch of flight modes that most of us have come to expect of a drone, and 8KM connectivity. One of the best features is the ability to remove the camera lens and install new lenses with ND filters built in.

Hubsan has become understandably competitive with DJI of late. It used to be that Hubsan hovered in the sub-$500 market, and DJI handled higher-end camera drones, but the gap between the Zino Pro Plus and the DJI Mavic Mini is fairly tight, and Hubsan is releasing other craft to compete with the smaller DJI drones as well. It’s very exciting to see this competition, we certainly see it has elevated Hubsan’s game.

The Hubsan Zino Pro Plus starts at $389, but we’ll recommend this flight package with a carrying bag and extra battery for $419 on Amazon today.
