Fimi A3 1st Flight - Foggy Lens Issue


Fimi A3 1st Flight - Foggy Lens Issue (25 min 45 sec)

Do you happen to have a link to the "lens fix"? Have one of these coming and was just curious how hard it was to modify if I have the fogging issue.

Thanks

I recently purchased fimi a3, when I connect the remote with drone it some shows blue screen and sometimes shows a very dull video output the drone was at a distance of half a feet away. Any suggestions what should I do.?

Have you tried resetting all your camera parameters? Last option in the camera menu: "restore default parameters"

A fellow member has posted the document from Fimi in this thread some time ago.

I got the same instruction from the Fimi support. But the weather is ok, so I didnít do this modification yet.
But the same time I was writing with banggood and finally they have arranged the resend of the new lens. Iím really curious what I will receive.

Thanks everyone! Hopefully it's a non-issue.

I really like the overall design of the A3 but the quality control scares me. This year I’ve already returned a Hubsan Zino and a Mavic Air due to build defects that showed up within weeks of buying them.

So far the only up to par camera drone I’ve bought was a refurb Parrot Bebop 1 for $99. It does the job but I’m not on the edge of my seat to fly it.

Traveling in Southern Utah, USA. No foggy lens, but the air was bone dry and at times temps were well above 100F. These are stills taken from the video recorded by the Fimi A3. No color correction has been applied. I hope to have some video up by the weekend. I was quite impressed with its ability to withstand high gusty winds even at elevation above 10,00ft (3,000m). All flights followed FAA and US NPS regulations.

The A3 firmware updating process is pretty simple, and for me it just went thru it with hickups every single time. This video explains how to update your A3:
