Fimi X8SE 2022 drone
The new Xiaomi FIMI X8SE 2022 is not a game-changer drone but still comes with significant improvements over its predecessors. It has a better camera with a bigger image sensor, upgraded transmission technology and an optimized propulsion system. One area where FIMI is still behind DJI, however, is the lack of an obstacle avoidance sensor. In 2022, probably all...

FiMI Palm Review
In order to begin my review honestly, we must admit that the FiMI Palm is not an innovative game-changer product.
