So did you buy yourself the fimi x8 mini? Did you pre order it have you received it? Do you have it coming? Что ж, if you still have it coming, you haven’t received it. Yet. Let me just say: you’re going to be extremely happy with it, because i was impressed with this little model. Это довольно приличный, the direct competition. Что ж, the competition it’s trying to go against is obviously the dji mini 2. and in many ways it’s similar, but this here has something that the dji mini 2 does not have. This has active track and that’s probably why people would buy this because the prices are kind of similar. At least they went with a different style controller. Sometimes companies, you know they copy the drone and, да, they must have copied it, but at least they didn’t copy. The controller they just made a smaller version of the fimi x8 se 2020 uh little controller here, which fits your phone inside, which is pretty cool all right. So the specs on this drone you’re gon na hear about them as i go through the video but i’ll. Just tell you right now: it’s got a 12 megapixel camera records at 4k, 30 кадров в секунду, не 60 кадров в секунду, it doesn’t have any zoom on it like this here mini 2. Has you know the digital zoom? It flies for about the same amount of time, 30 минут 30 minutes even on the bottom of the fimmy mini uh.
The sensors are pretty much the same as on the dji drum now i have to point out if you order the fimi x8 mini right now it comes with the lithium ion battery. It does not come with the pro battery. I think the pro battery is not out until may, or maybe even june i’m, not sure so for a lot of you that doesn’t make a difference really does it well, it kind of does in the weight you’re going to see in this video. If you get the lithium ion battery, it puts this drone over 250 граммов. But if you get the pro battery later or if you can order it with the pro battery, it puts it under 250 граммов. But i guess that’s what you give up for having a drone with active track and follow me and all that other good stuff. So this video here’s a two part video. So this video you’re watching right now is going to have the unboxing the setup of this drone. So if you buy one, you know how to set it up and then the first flight going out to fly it. Video number two we’ll have all the other features. The smart, intelligent features on this drone and some other flight footage that’ll be coming up in the future, так прямо сейчас, let’s get into the unboxing and the setup check this out and now a super quick captain drone unboxing of the mini.
These are the features listed on the box. Stop your video to check them out on the box. We can see what frequency this drone uses for long range so using that spectrum you’re going to have to have a very clear line of sight from you to the drone opening the box. We can see our drone and well let’s, pull it out and check it out here. We have the left hand side of the drone, the rear of the drone, the top of the drone and the right hand side of the drone, plus a little bit of the front of the drone. Here we have the bottom of the drone. You can see the optical flow sensor, Расстояние, sensor and power button. Looking at the back of the drone, we see the battery the battery charge port, your micro sd card slot, your rc or wi fi switch and your usb data port, and here we can see the 2s battery it’s a lithium ion at 2400 milliamp hours and the Arms on the mini unfold, just like this close up of the brushless motors props, are similar to that of the dji mini 2.. Here we have the 4k camera, which contains a 1 над 2.6 sony cmos sensor. The mini has a full 3 axis camera gimbal. This drone is over 250 grams with the included lithium ion battery. You require the lipo battery to get it under 250 граммов. Here are some quick size, comparisons between the dji mini 2 and the fimi x8 mini.
You can see they’re very similar in size in many respects. Next item in the box would be the controller let’s check that out here we have the return to home button, the power button and you can see the joysticks in the front there’s the charge port data port. Looking at the front of the controller, we have a take a photo button and over on the other side, you have the start: stop video plus your gimbal dial to move the camera up and down. Here we have the sticker. On the back of the controller, the antennas can be moved in multiple directions and, да, they are real, and you can see that you can stretch this quite wide for a large cell phone included are three different types of connector cables for all the popular cell phones. On the market, также, you get a usb cable for charging up your remote controller or the battery. в заключение, you get a set of spare props the screws to attach them to the drone, и вы получите этот маленький микро, phillips screwdriver. You also get a quick start guide and a safety manual that no one ever reads in the manual. It explains how to get your drone down to 245 граммов. You need the pro battery and here, if you want to stop your video, you can see all the specifications of the camera after you take everything out of the box you’re going to want to charge up the battery and the controller now take the top of the Box that the drone came in scan the qr code with your cell phone it’s, going to take you to where the app is download it when your battery’s charged up put it in the drone press, the power button once hold it down for a second time.
It will start up all right now, Я, going to show you the app when you first started for the very first time it is very much in beginner mode. Everything is set to beginner mode, так что я, just whipping through everything. Here a lot of the stuff. You probably already know, unless you’re very new to drones. The layout is very self explanatory on this here: menu system, how everything works, because it’s very similar to a dji drone top right is where all your settings are. When you click on that, you can run through tons of settings and i’m, showing you almost every single setting that is on this drone right here in this video i’m just running through them, one after another after another and i’m adjusting things the way i like it. So this is something you should do before your very first flight just run through all the settings familiarize yourself with where everything is in the menu system. You can do it all from indoors without ever starting the motors on the drone Music. A few key things to point out: your maps are on your lower left and your intelligent flight modes are right on the button for the photo or the video so watch this i’m, showing you intelligent flight mode, see i touch it i’m. Switching it out of video, and i touch the video camera and there’s your intelligent flight modes, Хорошо, so you can see there’s a full featured app on this drone, which means that it’s definitely not a toy drone.
This is a good quality drone. Now the next thing i want to show you is my first flight. I had planned to take this out to a field and fly it and show you all the features, all the things it can do. Однако, the weather here is not that great it’s, rather dull out the sun pops its head out every now and then but it’s behind clouds. So you get that haze and the colors look funny, but either case i took it out on my front yard to fly it. I just wanted to try out the active track to see if it actually works and i can spoiler alert. It works so check this out. I also did some photos, and here they all are check it out all right. First things: first power on the controller press, it once and then hold for second time, and it should be on there. We go it’s flashing because it’s not connected to anything next, take our little mini and take the gimbal guard off there. We go power it on the bottom. Here two presses once and then hold and then put it on the ground. There we go solid lights. These two are connected. Next i’ll connect, my phone there we go and the phone fits nicely in here. Next thing we do is open. The app and we’ll enter the device, and there we go. I can see everything it’s checking itself, preflight check. Everything is normal.
Давайте, put on record hey, i can you can see my neighbor’s garage just opened. Let’S start up the motors it’s, очень тихо, all right i’m, getting kind of close to it here. Let’S see it go up a little bit of wind and there we go let’s spin. It around so it sees me here. I am now for these drones for gps, you get gps. The tree block some gps, the house blocks some neighbors are wondering what i’m doing there you go. Let’S bring this up: Хорошо, Я. Just gon na wait for my neighbor’s car to get out of the way, and then i will try some little movements with this i’m going to go into intelligent flights and i’m going to go smart track. It says beta, другими словами, they’re still working on it. So this may not work out that well so let’s try it anyways. Please drag a rectangle around the target, which is me and hit go there we go so it should follow me if i move backwards. Let’S go over this way here. Что ж, it does seem like it’s working i’m walking it’s got me uh, so let’s see i’m gon na walk over here on the lawn with my back there’s a wide view of my house and i’m going to try the photos so no horizon tilts i’m spinning it Around yawning around in the air i don’t see any horizon tilt, что хорошо: Музыка, Music and there i am down there all right, let’s bring this back to me.
Applause all right. I hope you enjoyed part one of this video part. Two of this video will be me, taking the femi x8 mini out on a sunny day, not dull, overcast, или что-нибудь подобное, taking out on a sunny day and flying it around and checking out all the flight features and the camera and everything else, and just Seeing what it can do, you’ll see that video here on this channel so stay tuned for that until then i’m going to put links below to where you can find this drone.
