If you’re thinking about gifting a drone to yourself or a loved one, you’re doing the right thing. Drones are cool, fun, exciting, and exactly the type of gift you hope you’ll receive.
Drones were a massive hit in 2015, and are expected to be a hugely popular item once again this holiday season. Whether you’re buying a drone for yourself or for a loved one, here are five reasons why the X‑Star Premium makes a great holiday gift:
Easy and intuitive flight
The X‑Star Premium has an ease-of-use factor you’ll love. The controller is thoughtfully designed and puts all the important capabilities right at your fingertips. Auto takeoff and landing buttons are easily accessible on the front of the controller, which enable you to get the drone up in the air and safely back on the ground with minimal effort. Once the drone is in the air, controlling the flight is simple and intuitive using the dual joysticks.
Our knowledge base and video tutorials provide tips and best practices to help you get started quickly and understand the advanced capabilities of the drone. If you’re a new drone pilot or an experienced pro, you’ll have everything you need to do amazing things with your drone.
Industry leading 4K camera
Having the ability to capture high quality aerial photographs and video is one of the main benefits of drone ownership. The X‑Star Premium has an industry leading 4K camera capable of producing professional grade Ultra HD video and 12 MP photos.
In fact, an independent expert recently compared the X‑Star Premium camera head-to-head against four competitor drone cameras. The 4K camera on the X‑Star Premium was selected as one of two winners for having the highest image resolution and more dynamic f-stop range. It’s worth noting that the X‑Star Premium is priced hundreds of dollars lower than the other four drones that were evaluated, but it still outperformed the competition.
The 4K camera is mounted on a 3-axis gimbal that minimizes vibration and provides stability, enabling you to capture smooth video footage and clean, high-quality photos.
Superior customer service
The X‑Star Premium is easy to fly and incredibly durable, but if you ever run into problems or have questions not addressed in our knowledge base, you can rest easy knowing that you can reach out to customer support and speak with an actual person.
You can connect with a member of our US-based customer support team by phone, email, or live chat, seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST. Quality customer service is such a priority to us that we’ll even be available on Christmas day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST. Visit our support page for more information.
In addition to the 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal, the X‑Star Premium boasts flight times of up to 25 minutes, and autopilot features like Orbit, Follow, and Waypoints. It also comes with a custom carrying case for safe transport and storage and a 64GB MicroSD card that can record over 2 hours of 4K video.
Formerly listed at $899, the X‑Star Premium is now available at a promotional rate of $699. Autel Robotics is also offering a $150 rebate to cover the cost of the Part 107 exam, which is an additional perk if you’re buying the X‑Star Premium for commercial purposes.
When you sit down and compare the features and benefits, it’s hard for any competitor to beat the value of the X‑Star Premium.
