Autel Robotics X-Star Premium 4K Camera Drone Review
The X-Star Premium is similar in price and features to such camera drones as the Phantom 3 Professional, Yuneec Q500, or Walkera QR X350 Premium. I got a chance to review Bob’s new X-Star when he recently purchased it and brought it to the field to try it out. I thought you might want to get a look at it as well. Enjoy!

Computer-assisted flight modes include Follow, Orbit, Waypoints, and GoHome…

The X‑Star Premium is a sophisticated yet amazingly easy-to-fly quadcopter, designed for superb aerial imagery. The 4K camera, integrated with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal, can record crystal clear Ultra HD videos or take 12 MP photos. An intelligent flight control system and autopilot functions power the quadcopter. It stays safe with precision positioning via dual satellite navigation and our Starpoint Positioning System.

Breathtaking scenes deserve to be captured at a world-class quality. That’s why X‑Star Premium is equipped with a 4K Ultra HD camera that has 108 degree FOV. Take video at 4K30, 2.7K60, 1080p120, or 720p240 and take 12mp photographs. View the world from above in wide-angle perspective, vivid color, and stunning clarity.
