Small, fun and easy Xiro Xplorer Mini drone

Techstination feature for Thursday, May 4, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     A small, foldable drone designed for selfies and more.   The Xiro Xplorer Mini…that’s Xiro spelled X i r o….is a fun little drone equipped with a 1080p HD camera.   It is small….but not so small that it can’t handle a light breeze.  The range is a pretty modest 100 meters or so…and the battery life is modest too…at about 15 minutes of flying time.  Where it shines is in how easy it is to carry around and get up in the air.  VP Steve Johnson…

“The beauty of the Mini is it’s very easy to use, it can fly right out of the box.  It’s all app driven, a lot of automated funcitons in terms of auto take off, landing.  Certainly it has the follow me mode.”

But it also has a mode called Follow Snap…that lets it follow objects. The Xiro Mini Xplorer sells for about 400 dollars.
