ZLL Yan 3 (SG108 MAX): Obstacle Avoidance for Under $100

ZLL Yan 3 drone

The ZLL Yan 3 is the direct successor of the ZLL SG108 PRO, the main difference being the obstacle avoidance module on the top. For under $100, the Yan 3, aka SG108MAX, is probably the first drone with such an advanced feature.

Like most drones these days, the ZLRC Yan 3 also comes with brushless motors that are not just more powerful but also reliable than brushed ones. Being powered with a 7.4V 2200mAh battery, you can expect 15-20 minutes of flight time. 

The first thing you will notice is that this is a compact foldable drone, which is a good thing, especially if you are considering buying an entry-level drone to travel with. It’s very compact in its folded form and comes with a nice drone carry case, which is a bonus as it saves you money from purchasing one separately. With folded arms measures 13×8.3×5.7cm and weighs 251 grams.

The 4K primary camera is capable of recording 1920×1080 (full HD) videos and taking 4096*3072 (4K) photos. The camera’s live-video feed can be displayed on your phone over a 5GHz wifi connection. The FPV range is about 800 meters.

Pricing and availability

The SG108 MAX drone can be ordered from Banggood with a starting price of US$99 with one battery or $109.99 with two batteries. These prices include an OA module, spare propellers, charging cables, and a storage bag.
