Landing feet: To get more gimbal clearance

They are cheap, but need to order 2 sets to fit the Fimi X8

(They come in Black / Transparant White color)


UPDATE with msg from Fimi: 【Attention】

Please do not equip drone arms with feet extention made by third party.

According to our test, in some cases, it is possible to induce extra vibration with the main fuselage that IMU can't handle,
making the drone enter VPU mode or crash.

Thanks for understanding.

Using a tablet instead of your phone for the Fimi X8:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to use a tablet with the Fimi X8 you can fit a 8” tablet in the transmitter (max. up to 209mm wide)

Most used tablet here is the Teclast M89, this is one of the only tablets that has a HDMI output port so can be used with goggles.!

All info about this tablet with FPV can be found HERE - be aware stock is running out on this model so be fast!

Find it HERE - price around US$117 / 105€ - including tax free shipping.

UPDATE: Banggood appears to be completely sold out with the Teclast tablet

There is still stock avaible on GB, so be quick if you want a HDMI tablet!

China warehouse: http://bit.ly/2lOKZ8Y coupon: GKB85TF
Europe warehouses: http://bit.ly/2KJPcDF
Coupon codes: GKB85TF GKB140T




Be aware: The new “Pro” model of this tablet does NOT have the HDMI output anymore, therefor it’s not recommended to order that one!




Best alternatives (without HDMI) are these Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 (not the Plus) models:



Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 wifi Global 32gb - Around $179,-
http://bit.ly/2KKkrzD


Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 wifi Global 64gb - Around $215,-
http://bit.ly/2P5aHnU Update: Coupon ($189.99): BGe5760c

Note: Wifi only models have no simcard and GPS, works fine however with the Fimi X8
(Can be used fine however together with your phone as data hotspot - but not needed to fly)


With data and GPS:

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 wifi + LTE Global 64gb - Around $268,-
http://bit.ly/2zaBuEs Update: Coupon ($207.99): BG8427db others: cee0e8 - aff7off

Note: The LTE version is with wifi, simcard option and GPS, best tablet for the Fimi X8 (again without HDMI)

Update 15 October: if coupons are expired try these: BGeca6bd - BG454f48 - BG1d8727 - aff7off - AFfbG10

Be aware:
All Mi Pad4 tablets come with a nice matte protection film on it’s screen.
- do NOT remove that protector as you will be sorry you did!
This screen protector helps a lot in direct sunlight!

These tablets probably will come with MIUI 9 but they currently all update to at least MIUI 10.3.2
Google Play Store included, any language you like, no unlock needed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Always make sure you get the GLOBAL rom version of these tablets, unless you can read Chinese!

Apple iOS: You can use the iPad mini's with the Fimi X8, both old and new models.

Bigger tablets can be used but a holder like above will be needed!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unsorted thread info snippets:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Transmitter Mode 1 / Mode 2 switched! Update: Fixed in firmware
Be aware that the RC modes are switched up in software. So if you normaly fly mode 2 set it at mode 1, if you fly mode 1 set it to mode 2 during setup. (Stick mode - this mix-up is the same situation as on the previous Xiaomi / Fimi Mi 4K drone)
Quote:

Update: the switched mode looks to be fixed now in firmware update
If you don't no what Mode1 and Mode2 means, than you should select mode2!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Range test / Short range problems?
Make sure you have the drone at some hight - prefered around 100 meter - and NO obstacles in between.
Make sure you have the antennas pointed correct toward where the drone is flying! (see image)

Click the image


You can also improve range by:
- turning your phone / tablet in to airplane mode
- try a less dense area with less interference from wifi etc.

To get good PLs:
1) Use a orange or blue drone landing pad.
2) Do auto take off with the button..
3) Let the x8 complete the auto take off to 4m above ground.
4) let it hover a few seconds and fly away.
5) Use RTH to return and land on the pad.

BTW. If strong wind is blowing during take off, expect a "bad" landing
Note: Good and cheap 80cm (folding) landing pads can be found HERE and HERE and HERE
Smaller 55cm pad can be found HERE. Alternative 70cm HERE
(Use the orange color sides - bigger = better!)

Read/Write speed info: https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/a...rds%20fast.jpg

Be aware of ordering Samsung cards from China, risk of getting fake cards with slow write speed. Best to order "high-end" cards local!
(or online direct from samsung for example)

Advised to use multiple smaller cards instead of one big one! Switch cards after a flight.
32 or 64GB for 4K recommended size.

IMHO one of the best SanDisk Extreme UHS-I V30 U3 A2 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...croSDXC_Memory
Or buy from Sandisk directly.

But not from ebay and Amazon - many reviews about fake cards

Netac P500 PRO MicroSDXC 64GB from BG are cheap and known known to work good!

Test your card reader and port with a known good card with same speed rating on your PC so you have a baseline to compare. Not all USB 3 card readers are the same performance, and your results won't match others more than likely, but should be close.

Q) What is the best format for SD card? FAT32 or NTFS?
A) Exfat

1) Remove the four screws on the top back plate
2) Remove the four screws in the top battery bay
3) Remove the four screws on the bottom drone plate
4) Remove the two screws of the circuit board under the rear plate (you need a micro cross head driver for this step)
5) Remove the two screws holding the top back plate in place
6) Slowly lift off the rear plate, ensuring you don't rip the ribbon cable

CAUTION: LIFT PANEL SLOWLY ENSURING NOT TO RIP THE GPS CABLE ATTACHED TO THE GPS MODULE.

Not sure what you mean, the hex screws on the Fimi X8 are just the regular 1,5 mm type HEX.
Might be not everybody have those laying around, but I have plenty. (Than again I'm a tool freak)

If you want a good quality Hex set I would suggest this Xiaomi / Wiha set: http://bit.ly/2HOl7RJ
Try coupons: 0de9c4 - 626b9c - TTxBG10





Also a must have set for small electronics is this one: http://bit.ly/2X2DcC1

(These are made in colaberation with WIHA, wel know brand for professional high quality tools from Germany)

Not too badly priced @ $399 for what it offers.

Few neg points, No OA at all, no 4k60. Using Ambarella SoC, but doesnt mention which? A9 again?

RC is a little weird, does it stretch out for the device used or is it a fixed length?

Altitude limits suck, particularly for SAR which its being marketed for

No word on NFZ ?

Just ordered mine, compared to the Zino, for a few dollars more it just seems a better buy.

Xiaomi FIMI 4K folding drone FIMI X8 SE comes at $499.99


Xiaomi FIMI 4K folding drone is already launched in the name of Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE at price $499.99! See the detailed features and specifications of it here https://bit.ly/2Qndfhh
So far no stores open pre-order of it yet. It is said that these online shopping stores will not ship it until February next year.

Hubsan H117S Zino, previously considered as a strong competitor of FIMI X8 SE, does not have the function of precision positioning system, but at a much cheaper price https://bit.ly/2C26Nn4 No doubt that it's still excellent performance in all aspects within such a price range.

Wondering if most people would rather wait for FIMI X8 SE or enjoy Hubsan H117S Zino first?

The app looks totally redesigned compared to the one for the Mi 4K; wonder what has been done with the NFZs?

edit:

Regarding NFZs I only found one mention in one of the promo pictures:



"Automatically hover when approching no-fly zone"

Hubsan H117S Zino, previously considered as a strong competitor of FIMI X8 SE, does not have the function of precision positioning system, but at a much cheaper price https://bit.ly/2C26Nn4 No doubt that it's still excellent performance in all aspects within such a price range.

Wondering if most people would rather wait for FIMI X8 SE or enjoy Hubsan H117S Zino first?
It ships on Jan 15th 2019.

The precision landing and the 5km distance (compared to the 1km on the zino) plus already owning a Mi 4K Drone gave me the confidence to buy one.

To be honest the youtube Video they've put on doesn't look very confidence inspiring, too blurry, not much detail. But I think we'll see more in the future, hopefully.
