Following the epic success of the Beast series, ZLRC just announced their 4th generation named SG906 PRO 3 MAX (aka Beast 3). The most significant upgrade of this GPS enabled foldable drone is the laser-based obstacle avoidance module. This sensor helps to avoid collisions when the drone performers autonomous flight modes like RTH or Follow me.

Its Sony IMX179 based camera is capable to record 4K videos with 25 frames per second. The angle of the main camera can be remotely adjusted in order to get the best framing of your footage.

Thanks to the fail-safe return to home (RTH) function, in case of remote controller signal loss or low battery voltage, the aircraft will return autonomously to the take-off point.

The new SG906 PRO 3 MAX doubles the image stabilization of the older SG906 Pro 2, by enhancing with 3-axis mechanical gimbal with electronic image stabilization (EIS). Being powered by the same 7.6V/3400mAh battery, it also has about 23-26 flight autonomy. Compared to its predecessor, the Beast 3 is about 30 grams heavier.

Price and availability

Starting with December 19, the new ZLRC Beast3 can be ordered from Banggood with one battery for US$189.99. This price includes a set of spare propellers, a battery charger, and a nice should bag. In case you need longer flight time, there is also an option to ‘fly more combo‘ packs with 3 flight batteries, for extra 50 bucks. Using this ‘BGSGPRO3’ coupon code you can get 8% off from the original price.

Update: ZLRC changes the brand name into ZLL, and now the Beast 3 is named ZLL SG906 MAX

  1. How do you format the sd card for the SG906 MAX. When I go in the app it says format sd but it’s not selectable. Can I format on my computer? Fat32 or NTFS?

  2. Hi there, I have 2 questions I hope someone can answer for me please.
    1. Does the pro 3 max controller work on the pro 2 model?
    2. Does the new max hfun app also work on the pro 2 model?

    regards
    Michael.

  3. what is the latest news about the release of the SG906 PRO3 MAX with EIS?, I heard it will be after the Chinese new year on 12 Feb 2021

    • Yes, Probably only after the Chinese NY.
      I expect this drone for review, and today my partner said that I need to wait a few weeks more. They have the basic edition (without EIS), but that is only a SG906Pro2 with EVO sensor.

    • You have to wait for 60 days from purchase before you even start thinking of a refund. Be patient. You will most likely get it. I have had items take 40 days from when I ordered it to arrive to my house in USA.

  4. Who is the actual manufacturer of this sg906 max drone? I can’t find it and would like to contact them regarding the pdf user manual and issues that I found during my test flights.

    • Apparently, the SG906 MAX (aka Beast 3) will have two camera versions. One without EIS (like the Pro 2) and one with 3-axis gimbal and EIS (electronic image stabilization). I expect to get one for review, so stay tuned!

  5. ZLL SG906 MAX will have two versions:
    – 2020 edition with UHD 3-axis camera + EVO system
    – 2021 edition with 4K EIS 3-axis camera and EVO sensor

  6. I have seen the ads of the SG906 PRO 3 MAX but never seen unboxing or real reviews of this drone. I would be interested to see how the laser collision sensor works

  7. I ordered the Beast Max Pro 3 I will give a commentary and in approximately two to three weeks I’m looking forward to it. I had a e x 4 Drone And it would not connect to satellites for GPS This one should perform well? LOL

    • Cool!
      Wait for your impressions about the Beast Max Pro 3. Please test battery life and max range. Also, please submit some sample videos.

  8. I just ordered the older Beast, it was not even shipped out… Should I cancel my order and get the Pro 2 MAX? Does that laser sensor truly work??
