What was the voltage (battery) when you landed and the total flight time?

The total voltage was 10.78 volts (3% remaining). Total flight time was 22 minutes and wind speed during the test 9-12Km/h.
I am editing the video right now. I will upload it in a couple of hours.

Is the Mi 4k signal extender the same like the Mavic Pro's one?
If not, do you (or somebody else) have a link for the one you use?

12MP Photo, Sport mode, Precision landing


Did 6 test flights today with manual take off and Auto Return.
All 6 flights made perfect Precision Landing on the landing pad.
It’s perfect.

1. FIMI X8 video and it’s screen shot
Left side is screen shot, Right side is X8 video
45sec – 1min 35sec SAR
1min 44sec – 3min 28sec Sport Mode - Did not full throttle so could not reach 18m/sec but if I do for straight line, I think it easely reach 18m/sec max. speed.
(1min 58sec – 2min 17sec Made quick yaw rotation to check if gimbal keeps horizon level. It kept it. Great)
3min 43sec Auto return and then perfect Precision Landing on landing pad.
Please see below video
FIMI X8 and Screen side by side (4 min 59 sec)


2. FIMI X8 and FireFly Q6 side by side video
Left FireFly Q6 direct mount to X8
Right X8 video – camera looked down to white portion (H of landing pad) so no bluish color after taking off.
X8’s gimbal works very well as below video;
FIMI X8 and FireFly Q6 Side by Side (2 min 47 sec)


3. Bluish tone after taking off when camera looking down.
I observed bluish color after taking off the other day - camera faced oragne color of landing pad. So I made tests;
A. Camera looks down to see white color of H of landing pad.
B. Camera looks down to see orange color of landing pad.
Just after taking off, B showed bluish color and 3 –4 sec later, it adjusted to normal color (or close to normal color).
With this test, I assume camera setting of color is correct.
100% covered with Orange color, camera FW compensated to much then bluish color generated.
However after 3 – 4 sec, orange color reduced it’s influence and got into natural color.
So I believe, no color setting adjustment is required.
Please see below side by side (Left side A. white color, Right side B. Orange color)
X8 Came look at White and Orange of Landing Pad (2 min 15 sec)


4. Photo
Took photos with 12MP as per attached. I forgot to take 8MP. Next time.

I still use FW 1044J, 1012A and 1012H which looks working very well.

DON'T UPDATE TO THE 1013.. FW!

It is a mess! I nearly crashed my drone again yesterday doing a PL near buildings. It is consistantly 2 meters off the landing pad, sometimes it detect and corrected itself and land two legs off the pad.

NO HAPPY AT LOT!!!
THE PREVIOUS FW was the best for PL!!!

Other point, I did test sports mode yesterday and got a speed, 19.3 meter/ sec.....slight tail wind.

Here is my long range record . Now I can say with great certainty that FIMI advertised false specifications about this model. What is going on with you FIMI?My X8 SE didn't stop at 5000 meters range. I want my money back!!

You can find the extender I am using in the description of the last video I posted a couple of minutes ago.
In Mi 4k you can use signal extender similar to Phantom 3.

I still don't get it...about this PL thing mania ..I always land manually and I am perfectly fine with that. I do this even with my P4P which is a master in PL...I actually hand catch it every time I land...still didn't try this on my Fimi X8

This drone is portable photographic drone. We should care much more for the quality of the photos and videos than a PL if it is 2, 20 or 25.2 centimeters from the landing pad. Who cares just take control of your drone and land yourself be on the safe side...

At that speed did you travel?

I see during the return the drone was doing about 10m/ sec.

As far as I know, only Fimi can do that...sending you the downgrade files.
