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

But, if you dive...

FIMI PALM
After DJI has announced their OSMO Pocket, it was only a matter of time for other manufacturers to come up with similar ultra-compact handheld stabilized cameras. The FIMI PALM is Xiaomi's response to DJI's Osmo Pocket. At first sight, there is not much design difference between these two handheld 4K gimbal cameras. Also, both have similar size and weight...

Long time ago, the famous Henry Ford said that 'Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black'. Based on this principle, after many rumors and lots of speculation, Xiaomi officially revealed the Black Edition of their popular FIMI X8 SE drone.

The FiMI A3 will be the first Xiaomi drone reviewed at FirstQuadcopter.com. From its announcement day I wanted to test it personally.

FUNSNAP iDol AI gesture drone
Frankly, I'm pretty confused regarding this new iDol foldable selfie drone. I'm not clear if it will be released by FUNSNAP or Xiaomi (or both). FUNSNAP iDol AI is a next-generation selfie drone capable to shot full HD selfie videos. Instead of a mechanical gimbal, the manufacturer opted for electronic image stabilization (EIS), which unfortunately has poor performance. Compared to the...
