Autel X Star PremiumAutel Robotics USA have surfaced up as one of the leading manufacturers of top quality drones in 2016. The X-Star Premium is their answer to other players in the game such as DJI and Yuneec. It is unfortunate that the X-Star Premium did not receive as much as of attention from the media, though it is the best value for money drone in its segment. It houses most features that is only found on other expensive drones, but it comes with a lesser price tag that is quite attractive for your first purchase.

Let me give you a few good reasons as to why you should opt to buy the X-Star Premium as your first drone.


In a world dominated by black and white drones, the X-Star Premium breaks the barrier with its beautiful and vibrant color. It is not only attractive to look at, but it can also help you maintain a constant visual contact which is strictly adhered to by the FAA. It is adorably called as the Flying Pumpkin but make no mistake, it is one of the best performers out in the skies.


The gimbal system is the heart of any camera drone that aids in a stable aerial footage. The X-Star Premium boasts a removable gimbal system that can easily be slid off from the main body with just the push of a button. This unique feature allows you to upgrade the camera systems as and when required. This also helps you save those precious few dollars since you do not have to upgrade the entire drone or keep different drones around based on their camera system.   This is not official but we should be expecting the new line of cameras and sensors early 2017.  Im hoping for a thermal camera, zoom lens, camera with better sensitivity to low light situations.  What is on your list of camera/sensor types? 


X Star Premium Max Flight RangeX-Star Premium has an advertised maximum control range of 1.2 miles. This may not sound all that great until you try to pilot one in the open skies. In reality the X-Star Premium has allowed an incredible control range twice that far. Unlike most other drones, the X-Star Premium uses a 900 MHz frequency band via the controller instead of the widely used 2.4 GHz WiFi band. This is a band that gets the least amount of interference from other signals and also delivers a stunning controllable range. The result is clear pictures even at extended ranges which is unheard of by most other drones in this category.


Most of us possess a smart phone or a tablet in the palm of our hands. How wonderful it would be if you can do more with the same device such as view a direct video feed from your X-Star Premium. The controller has a sturdy holder that grips on to your smart device and what the X-Star Premium sees is what you will see in stunning 720p quality. However if you look closely, you will stumble across a seamlessly integrated LCD display which is bright enough to provide you with critical flight data such as range, altitude, battery status, etc.


X Star Premium Mobile AppNo matter how good you might be at piloting a drone, the Smart Flight modes can help make things easier in most situations. The X-Star Premium has Orbit Me, Follow Me and Waypoint modes, a controlled altitude Return to Home and Intelligent Orientation control modes. Stepping in to the field of work, these creative flight modes can help you concentrate more on getting the right shot while the intelligent sensors within the X-Star Premium does the flying for you. Before you know it, your job is done and you can move on to your next location for that winning aerial shot.


The gorgeous aerial footage being captured by the X-Star Premium does require a lot of memory power to store all that information. Autel Robotics have made sure that their customers never run out of memory and have provided a significantly higher capacity memory card of 64GB. It is not something that might catch your attention, but the moment you start capturing aerial footage the ease of having a larger memory capacity speaks for itself.


Wouldn’t you love to have a safe case to carry your precious drone that gets the job done for you? Autel Robotics have answered to that question by providing a case that is not only cool to look at but is way cooler in protecting your X-Star Premium from splashes and challenging environment conditions that it might subjected to. The case would set you back by a few dollars if you were to purchase it alone, but when you purchase the X-Star Premium drone, this tough case comes included along with the overall package.


Well this is one of the primary reasons that you will buy a drone. There is no compromise when it comes to the quality of photographs and video footage that is being recorded from above. The X-Star Premium features a 108 degree FOV 4K camera that is capable of making you say “Wow” every time you view the footage. The camera features best in class optics and the sensor is capable of recording 4K Ultra high definition footage at 30 fps, 2.7K at 60 fps, 1080p at 120 fps and 720p at 240 fps. With 4K displays on the rise, the 4K camera on the X-Star Premium ensures that you live every moment with vivid details and vibrant colors. It is capable of taking gorgeous 12 megapixel still photographs that is sure to end up on your living room wall to enjoy re-living that moment all day long.  I personally own the DJI Phantom 4and the X Star Premium. Bothe are great drones but when it comes down to a drone that I trust, I typically will fly my XPS during my commercial flights.  


Nothing beats a stable customer support that is available to a consumer at all times. This helps to increase your level of confidence and lets you enjoy the X-Star Premium as much as possible. With a strong commitment to customer service, Autel Robotics have provided a 7-day per week customer support based out of Seattle, WA, which means that you are never alone when you might end up in a challenging situation with your X-Star Premium. The options of contacting support via phone, email or live chat ensures you a first class customer support however you might choose to avail it.


In the end, it all comes to affordability.  Whether it is the camera, or the build quality or the attractive color, if it is not affordable then it loses its attractive value, quite significantly. The X-Star Premium is considered to be the best value for money drone in its segment. With competitive features and an even more attractive price tag, you can be sure that you are getting one of the best drones available right now.

In additional Autel Robotics is offering a $150 rebate on X Star Premium owners who pass the Part 107 commercial drone test.  

So at the end of the day, if you are looking to buy your first drone that is capable of delivering all the goods at a competitive price tag and ease of use, then the Autel Robotics X-Star Premium steps right in as the best drone for you. Not to forget that the X-Star Premium is sure to soar the skies above flaunting its vibrant colors in a world of black and white drones.
