Today, I will introduce you a quite interesting drone, called ZLRC Beast SG906. According to the first rumors, the ZLRC SG906 Beast will be released with two type of cameras, full HD and 4K. Before you are getting too enthusiast, the UHD version will be capable to record 2K videos only. The “4K” badge refers only to the photo resolution.
In terms of design, the ZLRC SG906 reminds me about the DJI Mavic Air. While folded measures 17.4 x 8.4 x 7cm, with extended arms is a bit larger, around 28.3 x 25.3 x 7cm.
Being powered by a 2s/2500mAh battery, it has up to 25 minutes flight time. It will be available in bundle with 1, 2 or 3 LIPO packs. Taking into consideration that charging process takes about 5 hours, IMHO it would worth to invest in multiple batteries.
