FIMI X8 Mini product details
Update 28. June 2022
Attention drone friends! Banggood has reduced the FIMI X8 Mini for 300 euros. This is the light Pro version with a 2250 mAh battery and a take-off weight of 245g.
In contrast to the heavier standard version (2400 mAh and 258g), the FIMI X8 Mini Pro does not need an EU certificate of competence because of the take-off weight of less than 245g.
The dispatch takes place within a few days directly from the EU warehouse. All taxes are already included in the price. Simply call up the discount code above and enter it in the shopping cart. By the way, you can also pay with Klarna at Banggood.
FIMI has launched a new drone that could make DJI work up a sweat. The FIMI X8 Mini is significantly less than a DJI Mini 2, but offers very similar specifications and functions. The drone can be folded to a compact size of 145 x 85 x 56 mm and is therefore perfect for taking it with you in your backpack when you travel. When unfolded, it grows to 200 x 145 x 56 mm.
Takeoff weight under 250g
The declaration of the FIMI X8 Mini according to the EU drone regulation is a little tricky. Here you have to pay attention to which battery you put in the drone. The standard battery (2400 mAh) weighs 102g, which would give the drone a takeoff weight of 258g. According to the EU drone regulation, you can only fly the drone with the small drone license. If you instead insert the Pro battery (2200 mAh), which weighs only 86g, the take-off weight is only 245g. The drone then falls into the OPEN category and can be flown without a drone license.
The flight characteristics of the FIMI X8 Mini are impressive. The flight range is approx. 4 km, with the transmitter transmitting stably up to 8 km. The drone can be controlled using the supplied remote control, into which the smartphone can be clamped for live image transmission. The maximum flight, climb and descent speed are 16, 5 and 3.5 m / s identical to the DJI Mini 2.
Lots of security
The global navigation satellite systems GPS, GLONASS and BEIDOU achieve precise positioning. If the drone is on the wrong track, it will automatically find its way back to the starting point with the help of the return-to-home function. There are also other safety features, such as the detection of no-fly zones, a wind warning, a battery warning and a warning in the event of a high power loss.
Flight time up to 31 minutes
Depending on the battery, the flight time is approximately 30-31 minutes. However, the value relates to ideal wind conditions and a moderate airspeed. The batteries can be charged quickly using the 9V 3A quick charger that is also included.
4K HDR video
As far as the camera is concerned, the FIMI X8 Mini doesn't have to hide either. The 1 / 2.6 ″ CMOS is 3-axis stabilized and records videos in high-resolution 4K at 30 frames per second. The LOG mode offers more options in post-processing so that the maximum range of contrast is available. The drone also saves photos in DNG. A number of intelligent flight modes facilitate the recording of cinematographic video material. The Smart Tracking mode automatically tracks the specified target without the pilot having to worry about the controls. Further modes are One-Tap Shots, Flight Plan Shooting, Timelapse, Livestream, Panorama and Night Shooting.
