Bertioga - 10/07/2019 (4 min 36 sec)


First video I'm sharing here. Mostly because they are boring and/or family related (and I've been flying more aggressively, videos are not good with sudden turns).

At 3min the damn RTH decided to have some fun.
The A3 was about 400m and I was behind some plants (and flying low, about 15m). FPV goggle was crystal clear (with a CP antenna), didn't realize the FPV in the RC was all fuzzy. I was sitting to the right of the A3 when it took off. If only I had moved 2m to the left...
Well, at least the sunset was nice!

In a straight line (15m height) the FPV on the RC reached almost 1250m (barely visible).

what level battery voltage do you bring in your Fimi A3 back home?

Ribbon cable to camera tore.


I crashed my A3 - it was only about 3-4 m up.
It flies fine.
The problem is that the ribbon cable going from the camera to the drone is torn.
I cannot get any fpv from the controller or control the gimbal.

Anyone know where I can get it repaired?

You can program it to automatically return when it has low voltage.

I'd say contact your seller or Fimi, but so far I for one haven't seen spare A3 cameras for sale nor A3 camera parts. They do sell spare A3 bodies (complete craft) though, but at a cost of course https://www.banggood.com/Xiaomi-FIMI...r_warehouse=CN At that price I would get a brand new A3 set.

Similar to the Mi drone! Almost no spares available. One of the reasons I wont buy a A3.

Arent these cables standardsised! Maybe you can get a similar one at a electronics supplier?

May you post pics of the complete cable and the plugs, please?
