All drones become warm when they fly, as we know that due to motors moving at high speed, altitude and processors running draws a lot of energy from the battery.

The temperature can be easily monitored from the application. If you fly it at a faster speed, and somehow the temperature exceeds a certain threshold the app will notify to land the drone.

We were able to fly the Xiaomi Fimi X8 for thirty minutes and the temperature didn’t exceed the eighteen degrees.
