My Experience with Hubsan H117S Zino, DJI Spark Knockoff

My Experience with Hubsan H117S Zino, DJI Spark Knockoff

I’ve become a personal user of this device since the end of Oct 2018 when it could be ordered, however, most orders are delivered in January.

I’ve already taken a lot of lessons and had much experience with this device, although I’ve taken it with me to many of my trips where I had an extremely wonderful experience with this product. 

Today, I want to share my experience with Hubsan H117s Zino, and want to give you my perception and review about the product. So, first of all, we’ll look at the functionality and characteristics of the device. Now, let’s get to the point!

What’s inside the package?

Now let's look at what's in the package, in case you need to buy additional batteries and possibly a holder for your favorite tablet. You can prepare well before the arrival of the package. That said, I'll show you the content of the package inside the box.

The H117S Zino drone looks like the famous Mavic Pro Drone at first quick look. The design is unique, though similar in style, with the same portability concept.

 I really like the jet white coating of this foldable quadcopter, which makes it appear like a professional and particularly user-friendly drone that doesn’t frighten people away. 

The major difference is that the Zino drone has a curved forehead while the Mavic Pro has a more frontal trapezoid. Nevertheless, I thought the drone design of the H117S Zino was much cooler. This smart drone actually uses aerofoil technology featuring folding propellers. 

This design feature provides a great advantage for travelers and beginners as it reduces space. This implies that you can store the drone easily in your bag and add as many fittings and battery packs as you want. 

The Zino drone is also fitted with bendable motor arms extending its overall dimensional size to 304.6 * 252.4 * 90 mm (L*W*H, respectively).

High-definition Camera

If you're a beginner or just want to start with a good camera drone. You're in luck because there's a 3-axis gimbal stabilizer on the H117S Zino drone. It easily beats DJI Spark at the price this drone is going for.

The camera Zino drone users can capture stills and videos at 30 frames per second on an amazing 4K ultra-high definition. While providing you with aerial shots of professional quality from the skies. A minimum of 128 GB micro SD card is recommended for this Class-10 Speed drone.


This smart foldable drone is equipped with dual GPS / GLONASS positioning system just as you'll expect from the drones under $500. The positioning system is for a smooth and responsive flying experience, enhancing flight controls and stability. 

Even smart flight modes like Follow Me, Orbit Mode, and Waypoint Mode come in. It can fly up to 20 minutes.

Remote Controller

This highly developed device comes with dual transmitters that interact with the drone from 2.4GHz to 5.8GHz for quick and responsive connection. 

I really like the design of the remote controller, as it looks simple but professional, not at all cluttered with buttons, whereas, you are able to realize a lot of functions with it.


To conclude the review of Hubsan H117S Zino, I will share with you a few final remarks. 

Personally, I think it is a strong potential DJI Mavic Pro killer among smart drones, not only because it is equipped with a powerful camera that delivers high-quality images and videos at 4K UHD resolutions, but also because the price is substantially lower. 

In the long run, it beats DJI Spark because it is a good-performing drone with better specs ultimately. If you're an experienced drone pilot or a beginner looking to switch to a smart camera drone, don’t miss Hubsan H117S Zino. Inexpensive and packed with features, the Hubsan H117S Zino drone is an ideal choice!
