Do you experience this in different places, and by different I mean in open space vs an alley with buildings on both sides, and such?

By how much would you say it drifts?

Does it stop drifting or does it just keep on going?

I have been on the support page of the FIMI website and left a message with a link to the video, but no response so far.

I feel this is a hardware issue with a bad batch of units as others can be seen. My unit is a May 2019 build.
I think this is a common problem. I had the exact same video issue (April 2019 build), you can see in this sample:

I sent an e-mail to Fimi support and they agreed to send me a new drone without fuss, now it's on its way.

Hi, dear colleagues,
Do you see blur focus on the right side on below picture from my drone? Or it seems to me?

Hey guys,

Following up the posts on that it'd be a good idea to curate a list of bugs/feature requests and share it with Fimi, I created a Google spreadsheet where we can list these problems. I included a simple template and added a couple things, so if the bug/feature request you're looking for is not there, feel free to add it. If it's there, you can add your name to the list of people affected, so we can know which ones are affecting most number of people.

Here's the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

Feel free to make suggestions on the format, it's just the first version, I'm sure we can make changes and improve.

Thanks.

Okay, here's my video showing the lack of definition top right of frame. I've emailed FIMI support from their website but can anyone tell me how quickly they respond?

Second post now updated with some more info on tablets:
(shameless aff links included)

Quote:

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

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 can be found HERE - be aware stock is running out on this model so be fast!

Telcast tablet with HDMI - around $139,- see THIS post



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)


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!

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


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 will be needed!

Think that's a great idea!

Did not get a lot of response on that post however... But if you can improve it and keep up with it to add more reports than I think it's great.
