FIMI X8SE 2022 Review – The ultimate adventure drone

22
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...

ZHIYUN Crane M3 review: All-rounder vlogging gimbal

0
ZHIYUN CRANE M3
When I read for the first time about the ZHIYUN Crane M3, I decided that this is the gimbal I need. In the last two years, I reviewed about 10 gimbals but none completely fulfilled my needs. For vlogging, you need a stabilizer that is compact, lightweight, can be operated by one hand, and is compatible with a wide...

MINI V8 camera: DJI Action 2 alternative? Hell NO!

0
Tisi MINI 4k Viran camera
The Tisi MINI V8 is a DJI Action 2 size 4K action camera with impressive specifications that weighs less than 60 grams. Its small size attracted my attention because it is easy to install on FPV drones. As the only review found on this unknown camera was made by Tedward from Canada and he gave 5 stars, I decided...

BetaFPV 1506 3000KV motor review: Perfect for CineWhoops

2
BetaFPV 1506 3000KV motors
A few months ago, I tested the BetaFPV Pavo 30, a very capable CineWhoop. Unfortunately, I needed to replace the flight controller and two of the motors due to an accident. While the stock motors were 3400KV, I found as a replacement only these BetaFPV 1506 3000KV ones. Brushless motors in the drone world are marked with a 4- digit...

Over the last few years, Gudsen MOZA has steadily improved its smartphone gimbals. The second-generation Mini MX2 continues the trend. It is the first stabilizer with a smart auto-sense phone holder and instant portrait/landscape transition. In a short time, Gudsen Technology became one of the most active and devoted players in the image stabilization industry. They provide gimbals for a...

In the drone hobby, many DIY enthusiasts started to print their spare parts and accessories for long time ago. Lately, Free Zillion, founder of RaceWhoop Facebook group, designed a ducted drone that is almost entirely 3D printed. The concept became...

Hubsan Zino Mini Pro review: Incredibly small and versatile

27
Zino Mini Pro review
The Hubsan Zino Pro was probably the most expected drone of 2021. It is the first quadcopter with a 4K camera and obstacle avoidance system under 250 grams. Our Zino Mini Pro review covers technical specs, features, image quality, and battery life. Of course, we will also test how effective is its 3D collision avoidance system. In the under 500...

SEQURE SQ-001 review: Soldering Iron for drone repairs

5
SEQURE SQ-001
The SEQURE SQ-001 is one of the most portable soldering iron at the moment. Its small size and battery-operated mode make it perfect for FPV pilots that like to repair their drones right on the flight field. In our SQ-001 review, we’ll take an in-depth look at this handy and great-quality small piece of tool. A soldering iron is a...
