Autel Robotics XSPRMWH overview

  • 1Description

Shoot DCI & UHD 4K video and snap 12MP still photos with the X-Star Premium from Autel Robotics. The quadcopter's intelligent flight control system enables assisted flight modes including Follow, Orbit, Waypoints, and GoHome. GPS provides precise positional data outdoors, while the Starpoint Positioning System measures flying height and optically tracks position in situations where GPS satellites are out of reach. A mobile device (available separately) can be paired with the X-Star Premium to access advanced features as well as monitor a 720p HD live feed from the camera.

The quadcopter comes ready-to-fly, meaning that a transmitter (radio controller), flight battery, battery charger, propellers, 64GB microSD card, and hard transit case come included (mobile device available separately).

4K / 12MP Gimbal-Stabilized Camera

Video Capture
    The X-Star camera, with its Sony Exmor R sensor, captures 4K video at 30 fps, 2.7K at 60 fps, 1080p at 120 fps, and – for super slow motion – 720p at 240 fps. Video is recorded in full quality to a microSD card in-camera. Additionally, a live HD feed is beamed to the ground-end for monitoring and reference recording on a mobile device
    Photo Capture
    The X-Star camera takes 12MP still photos in JPEG, RAW, or RAW & JPEG. Available photo modes include Single Shot, Burst, AEB, Bracketed Frames, and Time-Lapse
    Super-Wide-Angle Lens
    The lens features an FOV of 108° with the camera in its widest image mode. This provides a wide field-of-view that encompasses a large part of the scene in front of the lens while not delving into fisheye territory
    Gimbal Stabilization
    The camera is mounted via a 3-axis gimbal. This provides stabilization and allows independent camera movement relative to the quadcopter. The gimbal can be detached to store separately from the aircraft

    Radio Controller and Mobile App

    Transmitter (Radio Controller)
    A pre-bound transmitter is included with the X-Star Premium. In addition to sticks for basic throttle and movement controls, function keys are provided to activate assisted flight modes or snap a shot with the camera. An integrated LCD screen provides vital flight data
    StarLink App
    The StarLink mobile app allows you to gain additional functionality as well as view a live 720p HD image from the camera. With it, you can adjust camera settings, monitor in-flight telemetry data, access advanced flight control settings, and utilize the Smart Pre-flight Check. A mobile device holder that attaches to the transmitter is included (compatible mobile device available separately)

    Flight Controller

    SecureFly
    Helps keep the quadcopter on course, even if affected by wind or in the presence of magnetic interference that can throw off the compass
    Starpoint Positioning System
    The Starpoint Positioning System lets X-Star Premium stay accurately positioned at low altitudes, even without GPS
    GPS Enabled
    Works with both GPS and GLONASS for precise position when used outdoors
    Flight Control Modes
    Computer-assisted flight modes include Follow, Orbit, Waypoints, and GoHome
    Beginner Mode
    Beginner Mode sets strict bounds on aircraft performance to avoid mistakes

    Autel Robotics XSPRMWH reviews

    X-Star Premium Quadcopter with 4K Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value, but current iteration is flawed I really wanted to like this drone. Both the aircraft and the controller are robust and well made. The hard case is a nice bonus too. Picture and video quality is as good as any hobby drone out there. However, there is one big problem. When you yaw or rotate the drone, it does not turn at an even pace. It turns slowly, then fast, then slow, and so on. Autel Robotics knows that there is a problem here and is working on a software fix. I returned my first unit for a replacement before I knew that it was firmware related. But, if they don't have it fixed before the return period expires on the replacement aircraft, i will have to return that one as well, sadly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Drone This drone flies well and takes very good pictures. There are many options regarding resolution and frame rate. It's not quite as stable as another drone I own, but this does not show up in the images/video. The batteries charge in under an hour. Before and after sales support is very good. On two occasions I visited their web site on a Saturday and was able to chat with a support person in under 10 seconds, The drone is sensitive to magnetic anomalies, though I haven't had any problems. Documentation is pretty good, but like any documentation, there is still room for improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the hobbyist or professional. I found that X-Star Premium Quadcopter is well worth the money. It has delivered on all of my expectations. Even my 10-year son can fly the drone without any problems. If you're looking for a mid-priced drone, the X-Star is your answer. It was hard to only giving the product four-stars (too bad there isn't a 4.5 star choice). I weigh customer service on my review score as well. Since I haven't needed to engage the Autel customer service team; I can't go to a five star. From what I've read, their customer service is leaps and bounds better than one of their competitors. I hope I never have to find out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drone out there such a great bird to fly. Autel really did a great job with this beauty. If your thinking of buying a drone but still not sure about which one to buy, then without any doubt at all this is the one. Easy to fly, solid build and superb 4K video results. I own 2 DJi Phantoms and can honestly say that is one is the keeper. The controller is so well set up. The functions are perfect for both expierenced flyers and new comers. Stop thinking about it and grad yourself a great bird. Get the Premium without any doubt. Thank you Autel for doing it right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter bird - good enough for pro Have had my X-Star Premium for about 2 weeks and am still learning. Have already captured stills and HD video good enough to sell. Built in automation and GPS flight modes make getting started easy. The aircraft practically flies itself. One word of caution: Learn how to fly in the manual ATTI mode! I found out the hard way early on that if the X-Star goes through an area of very heavy interference, it's last resort is to switch to ATTI mode so the pilot can take over. If that happens (it did to me on my second flight, but never since) you have to be ready to grab the sticks and bring the aircraft back under control. Exciting stuff! Highly recommended. Particularly like the modular design so camera and gimbal can be upgraded in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than a Phantom 4 This drone blew me away! Easy to understand controls, uncrowded app giving me just what I need to enjoy my flight and take incredible quality videos. I played my 4K video next to footage from my friends Phantom 4 and we couldn't believe how much sharper and better saturated the video was from the Autel X-star. Great drone, great company with service in the USA!!! Everything is made in China but it's nice to know the company is based right here and they fix them here too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from X-Star Pumpkin is awesome I purchased this quadcopter to enhance my Real Estate Photography business. I wanted a quadcopter that is easy to fly, provides high-quality photos and videos, and convenient to transport to my client locations. The Autel X-Star Premium fills the bill. The quality of the photos and videos is outstanding, (although I am still learning). The quadcopter has several functions that make flying and taking photos easy. It comes with a case for transporting, and comes with a 64GB card. The camera itself is easily removable, so could be upgraded/replaced in the future if need be. The software works great with my iPad, but only supports iPhones 5 and up. Beginner mode works to prevent flyaway by limiting both the height and distance you can go with it, until you are more accustomed to flying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drone and best customer service! Love using it to just roam around or for filming a wedding good shots at picnics, any family gathering. Love all the current features would have loved it more with obstacle avoidance.
