Autel EVO Lite+ review: Mighty drone, Big picture

Autel EVO Lite Plus
Due to the weight regulation, everyone started to look for 250-gram class drones, but based on my experience, they have a massive problem with flight performance in windy conditions. Instead, from my first flight with the Autel EVO Lite+, I felt its mighty power. Also, featuring a big one-inch sensor, the FOV and quality of the footage is changed. Autel Robotics...

Autel Robotics X-Star Premium quadcopter

Autel Robotics X-Star Premium Quadcopter
Autel Robotics X-Star - DJI Phantom's fear I'm probably the only one who thinks that this X-Star Premium from Autel Robotics looks like a rebranded Phantom quadcopter. In my opinion it has very similar features and specs with the PH3 4K model. For sure, adding a small status LCD screen to the X-Star's transmitter was a great idea. The dedicated take-off/land button is another useful feature of the...
