Thank you again!
Seems to be stable. There was some wind during hovering test? Appreciate your comments!

Anyone with some nice edited footage in 4k f-log, after the latest update to the camera, that you can share?

Battery completely non functional


After just a few flights it seems like my battery has completely failed. No lights at all when on the charger, putting it in the body of the drone does nothing either. Seems completely dead and unable to charge at all. Any ideas?

Non Original Propellers tests

According to the sound level the only possible way to test noise level in fair way is to do this at home in idle (free-running) mode using my smartphone and sound level measuring application. That test shows that level is almost the same. The noise level of original and non-original propellers: 35.7 dB vs 36.6 dB (please see screenshots for details)

About temperature of the motors: i have no pyrometer and only can test battery temperature based on the information from application. But I do not think that this information will be useful at all.

One more useful parameter can be weight. Full set of original props is heavier than non-original set: 32g vs 27g. Is that pros or cons - everybody can decide by himself.

I don't really think this test is valid. The drone should be hovering in the same position and distance from the measuring device to get a useful reading. The noise level is very different at hovering speed vs the idle spinning speed with the drone on the ground.

That said, to me it doesn't really matter, because I would not use non-original propellers unless I knew they were manufactured by a reputable company and had been thoroughly tested. That's not the case for these propellers, I think.

Same.
I know there can be availability probs with the OEM units but that's just a reason to stock-up early. It's like putting aftermarket tires on your motorcycle, GREAT if you know what they are, but not a wise choice for an unknown product.

Mine has already crashed several times and it's showing some jello, but I'm not done with any testing and have not even begun to play with cam settings. When I get serious I will change-out the props.

Kinda a bad analogy, I have never seen a OEM tire on any motorcycle, they are always third party...Suzuki, Kawasaki, Harley Davidson....none of them make tires, all "After Market". I have bought cars with tires that came on them from a dealership that I knew right away had to be swapped out to something I knew that worked for my driving style...so yeah I know what your trying to say.

But in this instance I know of only one Drone company that has their own Propulsion Engineering section and in house tunes it to makes their own ESC's, Motors, and Props for their aircraft...and no that ain't FIMI

OEM for Harley Davidson is Dunlop which I always replaced on mine. There are a lot of different manufacturers parts on new vehicles that aren’t made by car manufacturer themselves so when you replace to OEM specs you just use what came on it when it was brand new. Just A Poke is going to get me for off topic again

No problem if bringing it up once or twice, but the 24 pages clearly points to a large part being offtopic / regarded as trolling.

If this does not change than I will for SURE bring some moderators in here this time to clean those pages.

There are other threads to discus that, I'm 100% sure that most people here in the thread are interested in the Fimi X8 and Fimi X8 only!
May I recommend creating different threads based on topics like most other forums? This is the 1st forum I have seen where everything is in one thread.

Return it from whence it came! If that's Fimi, contact them, they'll send you a new one, might take a month or so though...

So if all GM’s have Delco alternators in them and you ask for OEM alternator what would they put in? I use to do auto glass in my early days in the glass business and a OEM windshield for GM was either a PPG or LOF which neither was GM produced. And what’s a Diop? Harley Davidson does produce all the parts in them but if you ask for an OEM replacement part you get what was in it off the assembly line. I wonder if FIMI makes their own props or if they have a subcontractor do it to Fimi’s spec’s
