    Xiaomi Yi Action Camera 2

    Hey guys, have you seen the new Xiaomi Yi camera? It's rumored to shoot 4k @30fps which would be nice if the price is kept low.
    What are your thoughts?

    LCD screen on the back makes it kinda crappy for fpv I would say. Unless you fly conservatively all the time.

    You think there won't be an option to turn it off?
    By the way, I've seen the price dropping from $299 to $269 on websites like geekbuying. Not too bad compared to a GoPro is quality will be similar.
