Review X-Star Premium by Autel Robotics Drone with 4K Camera

The X-Star Premium by Autel Robotics is the newest 4K resolution drone that is taking flight and stealing the hearts of the masses. It’s a new take on the original X-Star, but with better features, capabilities, and standards all around.

The Autel X-Star Premium drone is an easy-to-fly quadcopter, designed for photographers. I’ve been looking forward to getting this drone in the mail! I hadn’t gotten a chance to fly it yet, but I knew it made quite a splash in its debut at CES this year. It looks a lot like a Phantom, so I was curious to see how Autel’s X-Star holds up against the iconic drone.

The X-Star Premium is a drone that is designed for ultimate aerial imagery and flight simplicity. It has been designed to be very easy to fly, which is great if you’re a beginner who wants a drone that can capture great images from the air, with crystal clear resolution qualities.

While there are a lot of aerial photography drones currently on the market, this one is very different. It has features incorporated into its design in order to give the quadcopter additional functions and a better flight control system, which is pretty neat.

It’s a very decent size, not too big or too small, with a wingspan of approximately 352 mm. You can even select the color you want, from either white or orange, and the main material used is plastic. Where durability is concerned, this thing can take a beating.

The X-Star Premium brings some pretty awesome specs to the table when it comes to the camera. It can cover a 108-degree FOV and is ultra HD with 4K resolution. You are able to take videos at 720p 240fps, 1080p 120fps, 4K 40fps, or 2.7K 60fps, which is a great range of options for users. You can also take 12MP still shots, too.

The camera is fully built into the drone so you don’t have to install it yourself. The drone is not compatible with any external cameras, such as a GoPro, however, which is fine because the camera you are getting is better than any other external camera you probably had in mind.

The 3-axis gimbal stabilization system allows for crystal clear, stable photos and videos, which is great to have if you are flying and trying to get some shots in the wind, but unless the wind is minor, don’t expect to have spectacular images. The included Micro SD card stores all of your videos and still photos to save and be uploaded onto your PC later on. In total it can hold up to 64GB of videos and images

The intelligent battery that comes with the quadcopter offers up to 25 minutes of flight time, which is pretty good for a drone of its size. Not too many larger drones are able to stay up this long, such as the Phantom 3 which only as 23 minutes of flight time, so it’s pretty impressive.

The charger that is included is something else that is pretty neat. It guarantees to take an hour to charge, no more or less, even if the percentage it was charged at is different each time.

This is something that is great, because a lot of drone users generally have to estimate how long their drone is going to charge based on the percentage it was at when it was put on the charger, but this way you will know each time and can plan around it.

You can control your Autel Robotics drone from a distance of about 1.2 miles. So you don’t have to be in proximity with your drone. There are also some cool flight modes the drones have. They come with a Follow-Me mode which allows your drone to follow you whether you’re running or sailing. Another flight mode is the Orbit Me mode and the Beginner mode. The beginner mode comprises of a geofence to limit the drone’s range and speed. So, whether you’re a beginner or experienced with drones, there’s always something for you.

Your drone is prone to developing faults. The propellers can quickly become disengaged. You could use up all the space for video recording and pictures. All these possibilities are what necessitated the manufacturers to include extra accessories. The Autel Robotics drones come with a robust hard case for storing the transport. The hard case also makes carrying the drone easier. The drone also comes with spare propellers and a 64GB microSD card for extra recording. These accessories are not usually included in other drone models with the same features.

Product Specification:

  • 4K Ultra HD video camera
  • HD Live View up to 1.2 miles away
  • Dual GPS/GLONASS outdoor navigation
  • Intuitive remote controller with LCD display
  • Backed by Autel Robotics customer support
