            This is my first drone, I love it, this is super easy to operate for a first time user. I like the auto take off and land feature, the gps is accurate and brings home to within a few feet from where it took off. I flew this in moderate winds and it performed flawlessly, the aircraft and camera remained steady. I never felt like the aircraft is not in full control. I strongly recommend buying, especially a first time user, well worth the cost to own a quality drone. Tech support was great, they are open 7 days a week, I had a small glitch with the live video feed, they replaced the entire aircraft, thank you support team!! I haven't had the chance to play with the auto pilot features, still in beginner mode but after seeing the online footage I can't wait to really push its limits and capabilities. I do recommend buying a second battery, 20-25 minutes goes by fast when your having fun!!

                So easy to fly right out of the box. I'm definitely no technical wizard it's a blast to fly. I've been practicing but made me look good first flight. I've heard nothing but good things about this company. I work on tugboats need to figure out take offs and landings on a moving vessel.

I fly daily if time permits and it performs great, you wil be amazed by the "new world" your seeing! Buy if now without hesitation! Your wife will love it too! Haha

                            I have operated many quads in the past few years but never a smart drone. Tried various Phatom drone products and was always amazed by their capabilities. Started researching last year and discovered the XStar Premium after reading an artcle in Drone 360. After viewing hundreds of articles and various reviews, I finally seatled for the XStar premium over the DJI Phatom products. I really feel that pound for pound the XStar product outmatched the Phaton 3 and came really close if not surpassing the Phatom 4 in overall cost, performance, design and support. So far its been a smoth process compared to what I have been use to with RC quads. I'm use to being in full comand of my quad. Flying in GPS mode was so smoth and using the waypoint, follow me and orbit modes really made each experience priceless.

                                We bought the X-Star for our 13-year-old son who is interested in aerospace engineering. He had it in the air as soon as the battery was charged. Learning to fly was easy for him, and watching him soar around at up to 400 feet (FAA limit) is pretty amazing. It's tough to impress a kid, but ours loves this thing.

                                  I only gave it 4 stars because there's no such thing as perfect but this orange beast is pretty close! I've really enjoyed flying this quad so far. It's my first and the learning curve is pretty easy so far. Flown a handful of times so far with ZERO issues out of the box. The camera is pretty decent however I may be difficult to please being a professional photographer but no serious complaints so far. I did quite a bit of research before buying this quad and I believe it's a great value for what you get.

                                            I got mine as a early gift from my wife for Christmas. She is amazing by the way haha. I have never owned one or flew one before in my life. I watched videos and training for 4 days and took it up yesterday. All I can say is wow . I am addicted. Longer battery life would be the only thing I would ask for .

                                                Got my machine within 3 days of order. Never flew one before and set up was so easy using the app. Got airborne in 15mph winds and it performed admirably. Great video and stills even though it danced a bit and that Return to home is fantastic. Just ordered another controller to allow training and filming using a cameraman. Will buy another one !

                                                1st time drone buyer. A buddy did all the research for me and concluded the Autel X-Star Premium was the best buy. Boy was he right. On top of a well made product, the support is amazing. I emailed support a question after 8:00pm and had an answer within an hour. Wow, support is what makes a product successful.....this company gets it. BTW - this drone is so much fun.....make sure you order a 2nd battery because you won't want to stop flying.

                                                  THIS DRONE IS AMAZING. THE FOLLOW ME FEATURE IS AWESOME AND THE RANGE ON THE CONTROLLER IS EVEN BETTER. BATTERY LIFE /FLIGHT TIME COULD BE BETTER BUT WITH ALL THE EASE OF USE AND THE AMAZING FEATURES IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.

                                                    As a novice to the drone world, I was researching what would be best for my video services and having watched and read many reviews between this, the DJI Phantom 3 and 4 and others, many reviewers highly recommended the X-Star Premium, not only for cost, but for video quality, ease of use and especially customer supper (which I have called a couple of times for information and they have been extremely helpful). The color is also a great advantage as it is easy to track in the sky. I like that they have designed a camera gimbal that can easily be upgraded.
                                                    Back to flying. The quad-copter is very easy to learn to fly and the app interface is great. The tutorials on the site make it quick to understand how it all syncs together and to get you flying.
                                                    My cons are based as a DP needing to shoot video. I have found the gimbal can be a little rough with its pans and tilts (wish it was smoother) and the iris control for video can also be more precise. I understand radio frequencies can cause delays, but at times I'm not sure if it is opening or closing the iris depending on which way I'm turning the dial.
                                                    The video and photo are beautiful and great quality. I recently added the video into a piece shot on the Sony FS7 video camera and it matched very well.
                                                    In fact I have a 2nd if needed for production

                                                          I take photos of wildlife from safe distances, also beautiful scenery pictures that you don't see while standing on the ground surrounded by hills and trees.
                                                          The only negative item I have is the need to check for upgrades before travelling as I once drove a 6 hour trip only to find the X-Star would not fly until I had downloaded and installed a necessary upgrade which seemed mainly to be the capability of have more waypoints.

                                                            I've had the XSP since Oct 19, 2016 and have not been able to fly due to a Magnetic Interference issue. My original XSP was warranty replaced by Autel Customer Service but the replacement is doing the same thing. I've been working with CS and others on social media and tried everything. I'm going to try flying more than 40 miles from home to see if it helps but that would not be something I could live with in the long term. I've basically stripped down to underwear to insure it wasn't me to no avail.
