NEWS: XIAOMI FIMI A3, the successor of the MI drone ?

FIMI is the real producer of the Xiaomi Mi drone and big news, there will be soon a new model more compact, i.e. the FIMI A3: https://www.banggood.com/FIMI-A3-5_8G-1KM-FPV-With-2-axis-Gimbal-1080P-Camera-25mins-Flight-Time-GPS-RC-Drone-Quadcopter-RTF-p-1368969.html5
Here we have a 560g machine flying up to 25min and 1km of distance equiped of 2-axis physical axis gimbal + 1080p@30fps CMOS Ambrella based sensor. The yaw stabilization is done electronically like the DJI Spark. Clearly this machine is a direct competitor of it or the new Hubsan Zino. I guess a 4K variant will be also announced soon. The radiocommand integrades directly a small screen. You can even record the transmitted video flux via a builtin DVR. If the price target is interesting…. my first regret is not the absence of a 4K@30fps resolution but more the 1080p@60fps one…. Another point, it’s not clear if the 5.8G video link is an analogic one or a digital one… Seems more an old analog one seems there is a builtin DVR in D1 format in the radiocommand.
