Ruko are a relatively small player in the drone market, but have just introduced a new drone that has peaked our interest, the F11 GIM2. This new drone is no toy despite the relatively low price with a set of features that are geared towards photography enthusiasts, from beginners to professionals.
One of the most notable features of the F11 GIM2 is its 4K camera with a two-axis gimbal and Electric Image Stabilization (EIS) technology. The camera is capable of capturing high-quality images at 3840x2160P resolution in JPEG format, while videos can be recorded at 4K/30fps in MP4 format. The drone also supports 5x optical zoom, which allows for safer and more convenient transitions between shots of varying distances and compositions.
The F11 GIM2 comes with what Ruko calls three-axis gimbal stabilization system, this is slightly different from our usual understanding of true three axis image stabilisation. In reality this system uses a combination of two-axis mechanical along side EIS to provides stable footage. This system is designed to ensure that images and videos remain clear and stable, even in challenging flying conditions. The camera’s angle can be adjusted between -80° and 0°, providing flexibility in capturing different perspectives.
Another significant feature is the drone’s extended 9800ft (3km) HD video transmission range. This enhancement to the transmission capabilities allows for smooth and consistently high-quality image transmission, even at greater distances. The F11 GIM2 also boasts Level 6 wind resistance, ensuring that the drone can maintain stable flight and capture clear footage in windy conditions.
The drone comes equipped with two batteries, providing a total of 56 minutes of flight time. These intelligent and safe batteries monitor and report their power status in real-time, ensuring that the drone does not run out of power unexpectedly. The charger supports an output current of 5V/3A, which is adaptable to different charging needs.
GPS-assisted features are also present in the F11 GIM2 drone, including auto-return home, GPS follow, point of interest, and waypoint flight. These features make flying the drone more accessible and creative, especially for beginners. The accompanying app offers intuitive instructions, enabling users to start flying with just a few taps.
The F11 GIM2 drone supports smooth 5G video transmission and can even be used with VR glasses, adding an immersive dimension to the drone-flying experience. It has a maximum flight distance of 9842ft (3000m) outdoors and unobstructed and can reach a maximum height of 393ft (120m).
Weighing in at 20.6 oz (1.28 lb), the drone is relatively lightweight, with dimensions of 17.7×15.9×3.1 inches when unfolded. The F11 GIM2 can store photos at a resolution of 3840x2160P in JPEG format and videos at 1280x720P in MP4 format. It supports a maximum card storage capacity of 128GB, although the card is not included in the package.
The Ruko F11 GIM2 drone package includes the drone itself, a rechargeable remote controller, two intelligent flight batteries, a spare pair of propellers, three Type-C cables (charger not included), three user manuals, an Allen wrench, and 12 screws.
In summary, the Ruko F11 GIM2 drone offers various features that cater to photography enthusiasts at various skill levels. Its 4K camera, gimbal stabilization system, and GPS-assisted
