Fimi have been surprising us with high quality products, specially with Smartphones, and also with other electronics. Don't think that their products are counterfeit of other products that has been in the US market for longer time. I have owned, fly and tested Fimi drones in the past, and they are not bad at all. And the best is what you get for less money. 

On the prior post about this drone, I amazed by the fact that they had the drone on AliExpress, and the list didn't contain the specs. The price wasn't set to compete with the leaders, and there were questions about the Fimi X8SE 2022 listing. So I contacted Fimi, and finally with have answers enough.

  1. Not sure why only some of the upgrades were highlighted- perhaps you're not familiar with camera terminology, but having a larger sensor is generally considered an upgrade (1/2 is bigger than 1/2.6).

    It seems that the only 'downgrade' in the new model is a 1 degree drop in field of view (FOV).

    Would also be great to see the video settings (does it support 4k/60fps or even higher? Will they continue to allow LOG shooting for those who want to colour grade the footage to a higher degree?)
    I'm surprised that there's no mention of battery life, however- the 35 minute flight time was one of the main selling points of the 2020!

    1. Thank you for your comment, my friend. You are right when you said that 1/2 is bigger than 1/2.6, and I didn't highlight it. Not all people that fly a drone, has the same knowledge you have. I highlighted the things that most of the people are looking for. About the 4k@60fps, I am trying to get the info, so soon, I'll be able to give you the answer. I really appreciate that you read the whole post.

      Thank you again, and have an excellent day!

  2. I agree with a lot of the points you made in this article. If you are looking for the C-UAS AI, then visit Droneshield. I appreciate the work you have put into this and hope you continue writing on this subject.

    1. Thank you so much, my friend. I appreciate your comment. Have an excellent day!

MacWheel LNE-16 Electric Bike eBike, Pros and Cons, the good and bad. Electric Bike Review.

Note: This post does not have the intention to sell anything. This is for information purposes only.  On the Amazon Prime Day in year 2020, I bought a couple of E-Bikes, from different brands. I will talk for the one I consider the best one, and what I've made to make it more reliable. That one is the MacWheel LNE-16. First the pros, the good things about it: -They say that you can go at 15.5mph (24.94 km/h), and I tested that with the APP Speedometer (69) from Cool Niks, and it's true, you can ride at 15.5mph Full Electric, without pedaling, or 18mph (28.97 km/h) with assistant pedaling. You can also test it with Google Maps APP. -The 250W Motor, can support more weight than what the specs say, but more weight uses more battery. I tested it with 145lbs with person and cargo, using assisted pedaling for 2 hours non-stop trip, flat road. Then I tested with 175lbs, for 1.7 hours non-stop trip. And then 1.1 hours with a little more of 300 pounds (136.08 kg), person and cargo, assi
