If this is the true alternative for a dji mini in terms of performance in terms of image, quality in terms of video quality in terms of price, or even if it can beat the other company that is hubsan mini, which is planned to come out very soon. So in this video i’ll try my best to quickly and briefly test fly it and test a number of its features, one by one let’s, not waste time, let’s get to work right away. Let me quickly show you what comes inside the box before we dig in. It is a 250g class 4k hdr video 3 axis mechanical stabilized gimbal, 31 Minuten Flugzeit 8 kilometer of video level, 5 wind resistance and type c fast charging batteries pretty impressive. I got myself in white color and it actually came with a standard battery now. This is where we’re gon na talk about the standard and professional batteries, because there is a professional battery available which lucky me i got right here in my bag, then inside the box you have user manuals and a radio controller which is nice and good. Radio control and it can actually open pretty big to house uh ipad mini and then in this small box you have cables screwdriver and spare propellers and a usbc cable to charge your batteries. Now i charge both batteries, they take over two hours or more to charge them. You want to talk about the battery.
The weight of the quadcopter with the standard battery is 260 Gramm. Okay and the weight of the quadcopter with professional battery is 248 Gramm. When it comes to under 250 gram class or sub 250 Klasse, quadcopter or aerial filament drone, you will have to use professional battery only then it will be under you know: Sub 250 Gramm, otherwise it’s 260 Gramm. With a standard battery. This is femi x8 mini it’s. In its folding state, really nice and small, very compact, very easy to carry after unfolding. This is how it is its size, Okay, right here where the battery goes, then you have a tf card slot. You have a usb port and a small switch which will switch the quadcopter from rc to wi fi. Ja, if you switch it to wi fi, you can use your phone to control and fly it and do aero filming you do not need the radio controller. Okay. So you can even fly it by your phone move the cover, and you can see the 4k camera with three axis stabilized gimbal. Then we have lots of cooling vents on both sides, including on the front as well right here. Okay, it does not have any obstacle avoidance sensors on the bottom here, more cooling vents and you can see a optical flow sensor and another sensor right here, which is tof time of flight sensor. They have replaced the ultrasonic sensor with time of flight sensor. If you’re wondering why time of flight sensor or what is a time of flight sensor, Google, it and you will know because time of flight sensor basically takes constant pictures at certain intervals and process.
Those images to maintain the flight or to help the flight and altitude control. You can get more information on google about time of flight sensor i’m happy. They went with tof rather than ultrasonic sensors. Then we have on off switch and also shows you the battery status. Let’S quickly take a look at the radio control. This is your radio control with sticks, auto return to home on off switch, and you have your sticks stored right here: Okay, two buttons, one for still shots, one for video, shooting and gimbal tilt control, Das heißt. All very easy to use very simple radio control. I love to fly it with radio control because it has more range with the radio control that they offer, that they advertise eight kilometer all right, let’s take off and see how it goes. Hier ist, my reign! Oh schön! Look at that it got up real nice by the way i just changed in the app the flight speed of 16 meter per second limit. Otherwise it was limited to 8 meters per second only so i changed it to 16 Zähler pro Sekunde. I changed the altitude limit and distance limit as well. Look at that Applause, es ist, sehr leicht, so wind does affect it and it moves around, but overall it’s holding its altitude and position nicely now very, very greeny, greeny and bright day today. So let’s take our first picture, looks like it has taken it now. Let’S fly it a little bit around.
Look at that speed, huh i’m, Tatsächlich, not even pushing it hard controls. Are nice very responsive? Tatsächlich, look at that Applause, schön. I can actually do like i’m feeling this already in sports mode. I didn’t even turn on the sports mode, which you can turn on. It also has a precise landing where it actually lands on uh eperon, precisely by by using its downward facing cameras. Yaw is a little bit sluggish, but you can adjust it in the app right now. I'M, just flying stock settings very nice all right, let’s test the auto follow mode because that’s, what most of the people want to know, uh how good it is. Okay, now it’s stressing me tracing me so i’m, just gon na walk away shoot a video it’s actually coming very well nice. What if i go sideways, look i’m still in the trace huh. What if i run wow amazing? What if i ride the motorcycle all right? Let’S see if it can trace me, i left the radio down there and see if it will trace me on the motorcycle or not i’m. Using the parallel tracing looks like it’s still holding me in the trace. It is kind of jerky movements, but so far it’s holding the trace very well and now i’ll just go back. It has lost me. It has completely lost me and now it’s keeping the camera to the center point. So you have free and center modes, das ist sehr schön, Süß, Okay, doing a good nice orbit.
Gut, i’ll move the camera slightly up: Okay, Das heißt, nice that’s, schön; Okay, so it will do the spiral and then rth, Okay, let es, give it a try now it’s, slowly doing the spiral. Look at the shadow of the femi mini huh, Okay, it’s going up and doing a spiral; Okay, i believe it has done it and it’s coming back now. So most of the features the advertise are actually working properly, which is very, very nice all right. There are more features to be tested one by one and i will definitely test them for the waypoints. Natürlich, it needs a map which uh i will be testing later. I just don’t want these videos to be too lengthy. You know now. Let me just fly around and take some pictures and get some video, so you can take some of the video samples as well Music. So hey, Musik, Hallöchen, Musik, the Music Music, good Music, um, Musik, hey Music done Music, dann Musik! Then okay, let’s test the rth. I hit the rth button. Ich habe 30 Akku. Quadcopter is right there, okay it’s getting up. I hope it doesn’t hit that cable it’s getting up to 30 Meter. Nein, i don’t know it will hit the cable or not. I don’t know okay. Well so far, it looks clear. Let me see yeah very clear and it’s coming back now, so we’ll see rth accuracy as well, now it’s landing and once it lands.
I will check the flight record and see how long i flew it on standard battery. Pretty nice not bad kind of impressive, Natürlich, for such a small quadcopter doing such a nice job and all of those features working especially the trace and follow me feature basically works very well right there. It is landing almost very close to the takeoff point. So pretty accurate as well. So yes again, uh the follow me was the feature that i really wanted to test now: uh for the slow moving objects. It works very well for fast moving objects. It will lose it so next i’m gon na try. Natürlich, my inflatable boat in the river with my diy, electric outboard engine and i’ll do the boat. Slowly, of course the boating will be slow and we’ll see how good the femi x8 mini can follow us on the trace. Okay, all right so let’s change. The battery and i’ll be testing more features very, very Music. Bald: Musik, hey Music, hey Music, Musik! Hey come on! You know what to do hit that like button it’s right there. I know you can do it. Oh, while you’re at it also hit the subscribe button right there come on don’t, be shy just hit it. Thank you very much for all your support towards my work that i post regular and fresh content on my channel.
