The X-Star Premium has twice the HD Live View range compared to the X-Star, includes a larger 64-GB card, and comes packed in a semi-hard, splash-proof, zippered premium case.
The X-Star Premium is a sophisticated yet amazingly easy-to-fly quadcopter designed for superb aerial imagery. The 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal can record crystal-clear, smooth Ultra HD videos or take 12-MP photos with HD Live View up to 1.2 miles away. This drone is ready to fly out of the box, and can be flown with or without the help of the free Starlink mobile app. Powered by an intelligent flight control system, dual GPS and GLONASS satellite navigation and aided by the Starpoint Positioning System, the drone stays safe and stable, even indoors or at low altitudes. Where other drones might become erratic or fly away when there is magnetic interference, the X-Star is equipped with our exclusive SecureFly technology to help your drone come back home safely.
Learning to fly the X-Star is easy: you can start the motors, take off and land, hover, or have the drone automatically return home by using the one-touch buttons on the remote controller. The controller’s integrated LCD displays critical flight information, allowing the Starlink mobile app to show fullscreen live HD video. Starlink brings a wealth of autopilot features such as follow, orbit, waypoints, and also lets you adjust camera settings and record images in flight. With the X-Star Premium from Autel Robotics, a new perspective is just one flight away.
From the Manufacturer
The Starpoint Positioning System measures the aircraft’s flying height and optically tracks its position. This lets the X-Star Premium fly accurately, at low altitude, even when a GPS signal is unavailable. In addition, dual GPS and GLONASS navigation ensure solid positioning even in low signal environments. Smart-Flight features like Follow, Orbit, and Waypoints allow you to focus on controlling the camera rather than the flight controls so that you can capture the most extraordinary scenes, while options like Beginner Mode can provide a geo-fence that limits your aircraft’s range and speed. The X-Star Premium is powered by a powerful, lightweight, intelligent 14.8V LiPo battery that provides up to 25 minutes of flight time and 1.5-hour worry-free charging with the included fast charger.
The free-to-download Starlink App is your portal to a whole new world. Enjoy an HD live video feed from your 4K camera to your mobile device (sold separately), even when the X-Star Premium is a speck on the horizon. Adjust camera settings to capture videos or photos precisely how you want them to be. Configure your aircraft’s flight control settings to best suit your preferences. And stay safe with Smart Pre-Flight Check to ensure every aspect of your aircraft is safe and ready before takeoff.
Breath-taking scenes deserve to be captured with world-class quality. That’s why the X-Star Premium is equipped with a 4K Ultra HD camera that has 108 degree FOV and is mounted on a 3-axis gimbal that prevents unwanted camera movements to capture stable, smooth video footage. Take video at 4K30, 2.7K60, 1080p120, or 720p240 and take 12-MP photographs. The camera and gimbal are easily removable for replacements or future upgrades.
Clamp your smart-phone or tablet (sold separately) securely in place to enjoy the camera’s HD live view. Make informed decisions with the help of important flight information displayed on the controller’s integrated LCD screen. Command sticks provide maximum grip and confidence for agile maneuvers, while function keys instantly capture the perfect moment, or quickly activate the aircraft’s flight-assist modes.
Each X-Star Premium comes backed by Autel Robotics’s 7-day-a-week customer support. Our U.S.-based team looks forward to assisting you with any questions you have about your X-Star Premium, from getting started to troubleshooting.
The X-Star Premium debuted at CES 2016 and was noted as one of the top drones to watch in the coming year. As more reviews are published and our reputation grows, our customer-first mentality and attention to detail continue to shine.

Born to Explore.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We’ve been excited about and active in the drone industry for years, and we loved seeing consumer drones hit the market, but we grew frustrated when all of the products available felt limiting to customers in some way. So we took matters into our own hands and created a drone series that is accessible to everyone — it’s affordable and easy to use, and modular and customizable to inspire creativity. With that modular design, we’re inviting our customers to join us in reshaping the world we live in. We can’t wait to hear about all the ways you use your X-Star to solve problems, to improve life, and to capture the world around you. And we look forward to innovating in partnership with our customers to bring the next generation of drones to the market.
What makes your product special?
What makes the X-Star Premium special comes back to our ideals as a company. Our top goal is to create the best possible experience for our customers. We made the X-Star series customizable with a modular, quick-release gimbal design. We made flying simple with built-in autonomous flight features like Orbit, Follow and Waypoints, and an intuitive remote controller with one-touch flight functions and an LCD screen. We made drones safer with our Starpoint Positioning System and exclusive SecureFly technology. On top of that, we’re committed to providing customers with world-class customer support seven days a week.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The best part of the whole experience has been the people we’ve met. Whether it’s the people we work with, our customers, or drones enthusiasts, it’s been inspiring to meet and partner with people who have so many ideas and so much enthusiasm for what we do.
