I hope I can manage to take my X8 SE with me when Im in SA (visiting family), because thats a really beautiful country - and Im hoping to get some great videos from that.
Where is Bergen? Never mind I see Norway.

There is near the best settings (now for me) to get wide dynamic range and reduce overexposure. Minimum details lost. But I an not sure that this is good for a low light.

Then added in Post: Contrast+20 Brightness+15 Cold/Warm-10 (to reduce brownish)
Not the best but you can see tones on dark walls against the sun

The soundtrack was more of a joke��

SA feels more communist than democratic with current government.

Only time I went to Bloemfontein was in 1986 with the SAAF 1 Sqn Mirage F1 AZs during a weapons camp.
One hell of bombs were dropped on the bombing range.
Still, " n rerige kak plek om te woon."

I think the sound track was an excellent choice.

The Fimi X8 SE did well .

Thanks, it helped!

You talk about a new Fimi Navi app update?

In the flight playback it shows "GPS" though, so this is probably yet another stupid bug by the Fimi programmers. I can't believe that they release versions with such simple bugs. Unless of course this is just on my phone.
The latest FIMI Navi App V1.0.15 definitely exhibits some funky behavior. GPS Ready shows sometimes and sometimes it does not. The Google Full Map is zoomed to the max upon every start-up and you must scale it back down. I had to restart the app several times to get all the telemetry. Once there was no FPV but OK after restarting the App. One time there was no camera settings displayed at bottom but reappeared after restarting the App. Everything works with a few very short flights but the app start-up just seems fragmented. No problems connecting to the drone but just getting all the info on the screen seems spotty. It almost seems as though there is supposed to be a corresponding firmware update to go along with the App update.

I'm ready to go.
I beg to differ,if we paid over 400 dollars for a product it should produce as advertised.If we don't critique or voice our dissatisfaction in all honesty but not by being malicious we can help get it improved.As long as we sugar coat or endorse mediocrity as contentment nothing will improve but sales.I understand there are a lot of members on this thread that are attached to the X8 and that's ok,that's what a faithful, dedicated and committed fan base suppose to do.The only thing I have a problem with is when some truly have problems about the x8 and voice them some take it to be offensive or personal.Me myself was met with aggression but this only impedes progress for a better improved product.I understand the Pro Fimi backers but sometimes you got to assess the entire situation before we attack someones opinion excluding the trolls.Here's proof that good and critical input generates productive correspondence.Lets help make this a better drone together..

Greetings from Greece !
A quick flight to a small mountain that I visited as a kid (it's my father village),and since then I always wanted to visit again,so this summer X8 did it for me !
I love to conquer mountains
It was a little windy and also was around a big hawk ,so I shortened the flight !
The location is Greece-Ancient Messini,the monastery up there is called Voulkanos,in ancient times was a temple to Zeus...
There is rich history around it ...

The height to reach was around 400 metters ,it reach it fast because of the friendly breeze...

Use a Mobius or some other small camera and use that to record sound.
