The world's first drone was born in 1917, and the U.S.drone leads the world. Started to develop unmanned target drones in 1939, and successively developed a variety of series of drones, mainly used as weapons. China's drone market has been developing for nearly 30 years, gradually expanding from the initial military field to the consumer field. Now, China's drone manufacturing and sales are leading the world, and ordinary people's recognition and demand for drones are gradually increasing. Indeed, today, both cities and villages are being transformed by the advent of drones. In this era of technology swallowing the world, drones are pervasively penetrating people's daily life like air. More and more people hope to have a drone of their own as soon as possible, and realize a dream of flying as soon as possible. Now the opportunity is coming, many consumer drones are inclined to ordinary people in terms of performance and price. Adrone of Feimi FIMI X8 SE 2022, recently purchased thisdrone, after a few days of trial and experience, it feels good, today I will share with you thisdrone of Feimi .
As usual, let's start with the packaging. The packaging box of FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 is relatively simple, with the renderings, highlights and parameters of this drone printed on the front, which are foldable and portable design, 4K HDR video, 3-axis mechanical gimbal, 35-minute battery life, and 10km map Pass and so on.
The overall layout of the box inside is compact, and the accessories are complete. The specific list includes aircraft, remote control, AC cable, USB cable, battery, 3 pairs of forward and reverse propellers, charger, FIMI X8SE V2 drone quick start guide, etc. There is also a reminder to read this Quick Start Guide carefully before using the product and keep it in a safe place.
Here's the charger and battery and charging the battery. The right indicator light on the front of the battery is used to display the current power level, which is very intuitive. The battery life of the drone is 35 minutes, which is quite ideal, and it is 4 minutes longer than the previous generation FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 drone. As long as the pre-shooting planning is done well, a battery can complete the entire shooting.
Connect the battery, charger and AC line according to the diagram and turn on the power. When charging is in progress, the battery indicator light flashes; when the battery is fully charged, the battery indicator light goes out; it takes about 2 hours for the smart battery to be fully charged.
The battery adopts the rear insertion type, and it is very simple to remove the aircraft battery, just press the buttons on both sides. See the picture below to understand how to remove the battery. Installation and removal: Install the battery according to the diagram below, and there will be a "click" sound when the battery is in place. When removing the battery, you need to press and hold the battery unlock button on both sides of the battery to pull out the battery
The FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 drone has a battery capacity of 4500mAh and a rated voltage of 13.05V. The battery uses high-energy batteries, which can last for 35 minutes, and uses an advanced battery management system with charge and discharge management functions.
FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 has a speaker function. This function can be used for rescue response, evacuation induction, emergency response, beach and coast patrol, epidemic prevention and control, traffic stability maintenance, situation control, etc. This is the aircraft's shouting and hanging module, and it is very easy to disassemble and assemble.
This is the paddle blade, 3 pairs each for forward pitch and reverse pitch. When installing for the first time, you need to remove the protective cover first, and then press and press it. It is also very simple.
This is the remote control handle of the drone. There is a control shaft on the left and right sides. The rocker on it is designed separately and hidden on the left side of the handle. It is more convenient to access. When you need to use it, you can combine it, which is more convenient for us. carry. The third picture below shows that the handle has been installed. The handle looks tough, and the round shape gives people a sense of affinity, and the design of silicone anti-slip glue makes it more comfortable to hold. There are two receiving antennas on the top of the remote control, and the device clips can be opened on the left and right sides of the entire remote control, so that devices of different sizes can be fixed on the remote control.
This is the SD card slot and USB charging port of the aircraft. Pay attention to the installation and removal of the SD card of the aircraft. When installing the SD card, first unfold the arm, open the interface protection cover, and insert the SD card into the SD card slot with the face up. Otherwise, when removing the SD card, press the SD card. The card is ejected.
Aircraft lights. The indicator lights of the aircraft are divided into the yellow light on the tail corresponding to the nose, the red light on the right side, and the green light on the left side. Indication status Red, green and yellow lights breathing, aircraft status self-check; red, green and yellow lights flashing, low battery warning; red, green and yellow lights flashing, low battery during flight, need to land as soon as possible; traffic lights flashing fast, firmware upgrade in progress; The red, green and yellow lights are always on, the aircraft is on the ground: self-test failed, the aircraft is in the air: internal failure; the red and green lights are flashing, the yellow light is always on, it can take off/normal flight.
In addition to the above indicators, the aircraft also has bottom lights. The bottom light is easy to determine the position when flying at night.
Let’s talk about the three-axis mechanical gimbal of the aircraft. As we all know, there is a big gap between electronic anti-shake and mechanical anti-shake. The three-axis mechanical anti-shake can guarantee the stability of the video to a large extent. The FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 gimbal is an integrated gimbal, which adopts three-axis mechanical stabilization technology to provide a stable shooting platform for the camera. It can be adjusted on the APP interface. The CMOS size of the camera is 1/2.0 inch, equipped with a distortion-free lens with 25mm equivalent focal length, making it easier to shoot large movies.
It can be seen from the above description that the whole drone of FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 adopts a simple and fashionable white color, which will give people a comfortable feeling at first glance. The specific size of the fuselage is 204×106×72.6mm, wheelbase: 372mm, take-off weight: about 768g. It is almost the size of a book. Since the aircraft adopts a foldable and convenient quadrotor design, it can be carried around, which is quite convenient. The specific operation is very simple. First, remove the protective cover of the aircraft lens, fully open the wings, short press and long press to turn on the power of the aircraft. When the indicator light is on, the aircraft can take off. Then turn on the remote control, connect the aircraft and the remote control with a data cable, and after a while, it will show that the GPS signal is connected, and then follow the prompts of the app to operate and take off.
In fact, some specific parameter settings and planning need to be done before the flight. Such as flight height limit, flight speed limit, flight distance limit and so on. If the specific parameters are not set well, unexpected situations will easily occur during flight. For example, a friend of mine forgot to turn off the setting of the flight altitude limit. When doing the flight altitude test, the plane stopped raising the altitude when it flew to 120 meters. Thinking about this problem later, after turning off the flight altitude limit, the plane flew all the way to 800 meters. Ha ha! After the test flight, I saw that the performance indicators of the aircraft were vividly and exquisitely displayed. The hovering can reach 30 minutes, and the image transmission can reach 10 kilometers. The newly upgraded TDMA image transmission system has more stable reception and higher sensitivity.
The aircraft video adopts the current mainstream video specification 4K HDR. You must know that the picture quality of the network platform is generally 1080p, but the recording of 4K video can be safely cropped. If the early composition is wrong, the later cropping space is relatively large. 1080p, the degree of detail will be much higher.
This was taken at around 19:00 in the evening. Although the light is insufficient, the captured image is very clear, occasionally there will be some noise, but it is enough for me without professional requirements
In terms of safety, the aircraft has multiple protections, such as lost contact return, low power protection, hovering at the edge of the no-fly zone, etc. These protection functions can effectively guarantee our safety during aerial photography.
The most heart-warming thing is the intelligent flight of the aircraft: automatic flight, automatic landing, automatic return, intelligent follow, orbital flight, pointing flight, selfie flight, heading lock mode, tripod mode, aerial photography mode, spiral flight, route flight, SAR mode , precision landing, fixed-wing mode, etc. I personally think that the most practical thing is the smart follow function, which can accurately lock and follow the target. Of course, some functions have not been tried yet, but as long as there is, it will do!
Summarize: FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 integrates advanced technologies such as aerodynamics, intelligent control, and wireless communication, and is a foldable and portable quadrotor. Capable of long-distance remote control, intelligent flight, and precise landing. It can stably shoot 4K 30fps high-definition video, professional image ISP, and high-definition real-time image transmission. After using it for a period of time, it feels very friendly to novices. Clear picture quality, easy to use, simple operation. The performance of FIMI X8SE 2022 V2 is remarkable, and interested friends deserve attention.
