your antennas are orientated wrong. they need to be parallel with each other and pointing up.

kennethpappas says:

Nathan Breunig says:

So cool!!

Mark G says:

Where did the word Drone come from?

Joe King says:

Excellent and informative review. Thanks!

Did you buy it or was it sent to you for review?

Tim Schofield has to be the most underrated tech blogger on you tube. I really enjoy his content. There are no fancy animation, corny back ground music. Just upfront get to the point review of the product. I used to enjoy MKBHD but his review seems odd and gimicky now. I don’t see any bias. Saying what he doesn’t like about a product without bashing it. Very professional in his words. Hopefully he gets more support for his channel and get companies to send him more products to review.

Hey Tim , can you please name the track played at 4:40 ?

Xtreme Mark says:

It’s a really awesome drone
You should also try a dji phantom 4

Joseph Quinones says:

awesome! Love the scenery and descriptive you are about it.

Radu says:

at the beginning of the video i got a how to basic vibe 🙂

SkyView4U Drones says:

Glad to see you into the quads to Tim!! I’ve been following you ever since I got into the smartphone thingy. I’ve been flying quads for a few years now and also have this bird as welll alongside a phantom 3 standard , pro and a Typhoon H plus a couple racing quads.
Great video!

kennethpappas says:

first thing you did wrong is you didnt tell your viewers to ALWAYS calibrate the compass. This is one of the main reasons flyers get whats called ‘fly aways’.

Kyle Mixon says:

not connected to wifi or cell network? not doubting you im just curious. how does that work?

Charles Beaven says:

Hey Tim, your videos are awesome but you need to go in a little more in depth on the quality of the videos!

ThisIsAPrettyLongUserNameWhyTheFuckWouldHeDoThatSoThatEveryoneWouldThumbsUpIt says:

How far can it go with the live view? EDIT, nevermind I just did some more technical research into it and the range is crazy, some people reporting more than the advertised 1.2mile range because this one uses the 900mhz frequency to transmit video and not the regular 2.4ghz range which can get a lot of interference since everything runs on 2.4ghz. Definitely considering this as my first quad.

I like how you do more reviews on different equipment than smartphones, sponsored or not. Keep it up!

sardanapalos says:

Man what a great review that was! Keep up the good job.

Bill Q says:

Just Say no until Autel fixes it’s bugs.Anyone who believes this hype wow. I own both the phantom 4 and the orange pumpkin. Aka Autel robotics x star premium. Autel’s app has video lag wow, their drone is not as stable nor does it have the range again wow. Annoying video interference prompts all the time sub par antennas. And the go home button to go home is fine till you have head wind and the drone just sits there draining you’re battery. And if you try to push the right stick forward on the Autel in go home mode  it will still sit there. On Dji in high wind you have two options in go home push the right stick forward. And or fly home in sport mode with gps. That’s another thing the dji app let’s ya know where you’re drone is and you can fly it back home via google maps even gives ya street address numbers satellite or hybrid view. And also a flight log that is re playable to find your drones last location.. With Autel your like where is it??? Also the Autel app is less refined some stuff doesn’t work Ios to Andriod. Just say no. 2 different Orange drones same problems. And I returned it both of them. Like I said phantom 4 owner it just doesn’t compare. Fly your Autel x star be proud but in high wind it’s like flying a orange kite. Very trouble some to bring it back almost lost it 3 times. It’s enough for me. I ordered a second phantom 4.. Autel does a few things right nice kit and great support. Other then that it doesn’t compare. You get what ya pay for heard that saying in life?

Michael Strow says:

Be sure to check the alignment of the antenna on your remote when you fly. Youll want to twist them so the flat parts are facing each other and keep them parallel with each other and slightly bent towards your phone. The manual will have a picture to illustrate.

Mike Dionis says:

I have had my Autel X-Star Premium for about 6 months now and what a very impressive set of features and reliability. I cannot give this drone enough compliments. The quality of the camera, ease of flying, exceptional return to home feature and the range of operation just hits it out of the park. It is very important to calibrate the compass and should be followed especially when taking this to new locations. I do need to look into possible lens filters for the camera as when flying in certain light conditions this will help reduce lens flare when shooting into the sun and to help tone down highlights. Cannot wait to see what Autel has in store with new replacement camera options!

Jeffrey Provance says:

Have this thing. amazing
