The Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE is a fantastic drone with a huge range and 4K video capabilities. We are currently still working on the review, but we already can highly recommend it. It is not only suitable for the beginner drone pilots, but also for the most advanced drone pilots. No, the FIMI X8 is not a racing drone but its pretty easy to take it out on a spin, just for fun or shoot the marvelous footage with the 4K camera. Like the specs mention, you can run it for about 33 mins and control it up to 5 KM.

Fimi x8se review
If you need a good drone for filming that is affordable, the FIMI X8 SE is a perfect choice. Not only the drone is priced well, but also the additional spare parts and accessories are.
There are several communities for support, tips and printable accessories. The software is well engineered and the overall experience is very good. That in combination with the price makes this drone worth your money and a very good alternative to a much more expensive product from DJI.
