Xiaomi’s drone is produced by Fimi Technology, a Xiaomi ecological chain company. Now, Fimi Technology has launched its own brand Fimi X8 SE 2020, with a foldable design, priced at 2,999 yuan and 2,699 yuan ($395.12).
Fimi X8SE 2020 adopts a foldable design similar to DJI Mavic. Its performance is more powerful than that of Mavic mini at the same price. It achieves 4K video recording, 8 km image transmission, wind resistance level 5, and battery life reaching an astonishing 35 minutes.
However, its volume is larger than that of Mavic mini. After folding, it measures 204x106x72.6mm and weighs about 765g. X8 SE 2020 UAV is equipped with a light three-axis mechanical stabilization gimbal, equipped with Fimi latest generation of professional control algorithms, with a control accuracy of 0.005%.
Thanks to the latest generation of HiSilicon’s ISP engine, X8 SE 2020 can shoot 4K video with a large stream of up to 100Mbps, retaining more screen details. The new F-log video color mode and DNG RAW photo format bring greater space for post-production.
In terms of functions, it supports one-click blockbusters, intelligent follow-up, route planning shooting, panoramic shooting, time-lapse photography, night scene mode, etc.
The maximum horizontal flight speed can reach 18m/s, the maximum ascent speed is 5m/s, and the maximum descent speed is 4m/s. It should be noted that the copywriting stated that its flying altitude is limited to 120m, and I wonder if it can be unlocked.
Its newly upgraded second-generation TDMA image transmission system has increased sensitivity by 5dbm, supports 8km image transmission, and can fly farther.
