Banggood order will be delivered in under a week, as advertised.
Yeah, they ignored the order cancellation and just sent a shipping notification a few minutes ago.

Looks like I'll have to sell this one when it arrives next week. FFS.

Hi

Just looking into a decent drone now.
Is the Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE 2020 the recommended one? or is there a different one?
Where is the recommended place to order from and what price range is it in?

Thanks

Fimi X8 2020 from Banggood for around 369 when available from CZ warehouse. Delivery takes about a week.

The official store on AliExpress takes about 3 weeks despite stating 5 day delivery or something. That 5 days doesn't include processing time.

I think Spanish store is only one with stock in EU at the minute.

Also, code BGX8SEES will drop the price down to around €310ish I think.

Makes the Banggood "preorder price" a farce especially with the wait time we all had!

FFS. I was using Honey when I bought mine a couple of weeks ago and no discount codes were showing for it.

It arrived broken (joystick gimbal dome) and they gave me a €50 refund but I paid over €365 (IIRC - they have removed the sale records from my account! I assume this is so I can't leave a review? Shady feckers).

EDIT: just removed from Orders in the app, I can see it on the full site.

FYI: FIMI won't sell parts - They want to repair themselves.

Currently in a email battle with them as they are trying to sell me parts

Some pieces near the gimble look to be coming loose ... they saying I must have crashed it and are offering the parts to carry out the repairs myself! I offered to send the logs to show no crash

Camera gimbal?

I want to buy the parts, but they won't let me.

I think not.

If something arrived damaged, and I wasn't properly refunded or item replaced, I would not let it go. It seems a crazy thing to offer considering I would put the onus of needing to have shipping insurance on them.

How would this drone compare to a mavic mini which is around the same price?
