Coming soon: FIMI X8SE 2020

FIMI X8 SE 2020 edition

Wee Tsai, social media representative of Xiaomi, just rumoured few photos of the upcoming FIMI X8SE 2020. The pictures show pretty nice upgrades, most of them we hoped for!

Back to 2019, the FIMI X8SE was one of the best Mavic Pro alternative, but now it has become quite outdated in most aspects. FiMI promises that the new 2020 edition will have longer flight time, extended range and better image quality. Furthermore, the FIMI X8SE 2020 will feature improved optical flow positioning with up to 30 meters range.

  1. so let’s recap: No obstacle avoidance, No 4K@60FPS and almost 1KG. The true is that 2020 version has theoretically, repeat theoretically 2 minutes extra flight time and 3kM plus range which most will never use it if you fly LoS…

  2. they switched from “pre-order” to “stock alert” do you know how can I use in this case the FIMI X8SE 2020 coupon codes???

  3. Just bought xiong 2 days ago hoping it’s the 2020. Version got spare wings bag bought them separately expected in ten days if it’s not the new version I wont even open it I will put it on eBay at £460 with the fimi x8 se Original bag plus new red propellers all unused
