  • Contrast: +5
  • Highlights: -60
  • Shadows: -5
Thanks, casaucao.

I'm learning more and more that F-LOG is definitely the way to shoot when color grading in post. Maybe try some rowdy polka music on your next vid!

Got the carrying case for the drone I don’t yet have 😂😭. Looks nice. One zippered pouch on the outside, one outside Velcro pouch. One internal flap that you can put paper in, maybe. Foam cut out areas to put drone and accessories. Very good feel, worth the $18 and fast shipping from amazon, and same price as many banggood cases too, so worth it. Free shipping!!

For those that had/have the bigger Mi drone 4k:

How does the X8-SE perform in terms of stability in slight winds? I want to get a smaller portable drone but love the power from the Mi and its strong performance in the gusts.

I just recently sold my Mi 4k, it was a great drone, as you said, very stable in the wind, strong and heavy. But it was a pain in the a.. to carry around, so it was mainly safely stored at home. The X8 is much lighter, bur it is much faster and it handles wind very well, I just flew in 50 km/h gusts without problems. It is a bit more twitchy and shakes in the wind, but the camera gimbal does a great job stabilizing the video, so no worries there. And also the app is a major plus with the X8, I hated the Mi Drone app...

I still have my Mi 4k with 5 serviceable batteries , flies great but sound so loud compare to my X8.
Yes the app sucks, they should still update the app since the Mi 4k is still for sale online brand new.

hello ,

how old are your batteries and what is their number of cycle ?

i ask cause now all my 4 batteries of my mi drone 4k are out ( there is at least 1 cell by battery which have internal resistance higher than other , which cause température increase and drop voltage ) , cannot use a lot any more or only for some test near ground .

I have that bag. I got it from China a few months back on a recommendation from on this site. It is nice and compact, but it did not carry all the crap I wanted to bring with me on a road trip. I found a bigger one in the form of a knapsack (Lowepro DroneGuard BP 200 Backpack) on one of those daily deal sites (Another lead on got on this site). That I liked better. It was cheap when I got it, but it is 2 or three times more expensive on Amazon.
If you travel light, you will be happy with this one. Its a great bag for a great pice.

Antenna front motorarm


Hi

I´m gonna renovate my crashed X8 by getting new engine arms and a battery.... hopefully nothing else I have already bought another X8 but will renovate the dead drone like a challenge
One of the things that was broken was the tip of the internal antenna inside the left front motorarm. My question is whether the antenna (2.4GHz) must have the metal tip that had been worn off? The picture shows the antenna, about 20cm without the metal tip (which I have drawn instead). Does the antenna work without the metal tip? If not, does anyone have an idea of ​​where I can get a replacement?

Speaking of bags, I use the original packaging glued into a cheap tool bag

Regards

Can't help you with the antenna issue. But I did the same thing with my other drone, took the styrofoam packing and put it in a "Harbor Freight "(Cheap tool company here is the US) box similar to yours. It worked great.

Your goggles are diversity 5.8 Ghz Rcv'r support...Fimi X8 doesn't use that protocol. So your SOL on using them on the FIMI.
