FiMi X8SE 2022. Now With Drone Functionality Expansion Port

FiMi X8SE 2022. Now with drone functionality expansion port

Are the old problems still there?

Appar­ent­ly, the FiMi devel­op­er is fol­low­ing the path of Hub­san, which, com­pared to oth­er com­peti­tors, offers the largest num­ber of UAV iter­a­tions for sale, most of which do not meet the declared spec­i­fi­ca­tion / per­for­mance, and some ver­sions have nev­er been seen at all. Fur­ther details and in order. Let’s fly!

The oth­er day, the sec­ond ver­sion of the mod­i­fied flag­ship mod­el X8SE 2022, announced in Sep­tem­ber 2021, went on sale in the offi­cial FiMi online store, and this despite the fact that the pre­vi­ous ver­sion has not yet got rid of such prob­lems as the obstruc­tion of the hori­zon by the cam­era gim­bal , gim­bal vibra­tions, flight insta­bil­i­ty, prob­lems with the cam­era in 48-megapix­el mode, lack of some flight modes .… More­over, it is not pos­si­ble to find out whether these prob­lems were solved in the sec­ond ver­sion, since those. FiMi sup­port does not want to talk about these top­ics.

What’s new?

In those. part, only one inno­va­tion of the X8SE 2022 V2 is report­ed: a con­nec­tor for con­nect­ing addi­tion­al acces­sories has been added. The first acces­so­ry announced was a com­bo mod­ule that com­bines two devices at once — the Mega­phone speak­er, which, accord­ing to FiMi, can be heard at a dis­tance of up to 100 meters and a portable / drop device that allows the drone to car­ry and drop a pay­load weigh­ing up to 200 grams.

Nothing else?

There is no men­tion of this inno­va­tion of the X8SE 2022 V2 either in the descrip­tion of the device or in the spec­i­fi­ca­tion, but if you pay atten­tion to the pre­sent­ed images with it, then in its low­er part you can see an added pair of sen­sors and, appar­ent­ly, an LED back­light con­sist­ing of a pair of LEDs . In fact, this option should improve the posi­tion­ing of the drone when land­ing in low light con­di­tions.

By the way, announced in par­al­lel with the X8 SE 2022 V1 drone, a mul­ti­func­tion­al remote con­trol with an inte­grat­ed screen has not gone beyond the ren­dered images, and it looks like we will not see it on sale in the near future.
