Despite being relatively affordable, quite compact and light enough to be classified alongside toy quadcopters, it's not a toy for kids: the camera supports 4K video and the battery supports 30 minutes of flight - at a range of up to 8 km , no less than that.With a simple but effective app and a well-designed remote control, Fimi has created a strong all-in-one package here.
This drone can be flown in blast conditions, grabbing crisp, steady footage, and its folding design means it can be tossed into a small backpack or purse every time you go out for the day - in case you stumble across something that deserves to be photographed or filmed from the air.
The Mini 2 is the best entry-level drone and, for our money, it has the X8 Mini beat in every category that matters: build quality, camera performance and flight safety.It's a good margin, to be fair - the X8 Mini doesn't have any glaring weaknesses, except perhaps the lack of frontal collision detectors - but we think the Mini 2 is just a stronger performance, and that makes it even the best deal even at its slightly higher price.These are the best drones you can buy right now.Fimi X8 Mini price and release dateThe Fimi X8 Mini is available for purchase now through the official Fimi store for R$2083.58.
It doesn't matter that if you want it to come with less than 250g you'll need to opt for the version with the Pro battery - the standard edition battery comes with just over 250g.All editions come with the remote controller, four spare propellers, a gimbal cover, three cables for attaching mobile devices to the controller, and a USB Type-C cable for charging.Project and controllerOne of the main selling points of the Fimi X8 Mini is its sub-250g weight.
It features real-time GPS tracking to ensure you can return home in the event of a signal drop, and the app uses no-fly zone geofencing to prevent take-off near airports and other restricted areas.
The X8 Mini has down-facing sensors that help it take off and land, but launch it directly into a wall or tree and it won't be able to stop on its own.However, it offers the same level of wind resistance as the Mini 2: Level 5, which means it can withstand a "fresh breeze" of 8.5-10.5m/sec.
