The XI-5A Camera Gimbal enables the camera to capture clear photos and videos. It is specially designed to minimize camera vibration and providing the best experience for you. The controllable range of the gimbal roll axis is 0°~90° and the operating temperature is maintained between -10°C~50°C (14°F~122°F). The gimbal is powered by the aircraft battery, and a self-test is performed each time the gimbal starts where the gimbal will rotate through its limits and calibrate itself. The picture below makes you familiar with every part of the gimbal and camera.

• When stored the XI-5A Camera Gimbal is held in place with a gimbal holder to protect the gimbal from incidental rotation and avoid damage.

• Remember to remove the holder before powering up the aircraft. Failure to do so may result in damage and overheating of the gimbal motors and circuitry.

The XI-5A Camera Gimbal for EVO supports two working modes:

Stabilized Mode: The gimbal’s orientation will always remain constant with the aircraft’s nose, but the gimbal will keep horizontal even when the aircraft tilts.

FPV Mode: The gimbal will be synchronized with the aircraft’s movement including rotation and tilt to create a first-person view during the flight.


EVO comes with a 4K UHD camera which supports various shooting modes, including single shot, burst shooting, AEB and time-lapse. Photos can be saved in RAW or JPG formats, and videos can be recorded in MOV or MP4 formats. A high-definition live view from the camera can be displayed on your remote controller or optional mobile app with clearer and smoother image quality.

Micro SD Card

If you wish to capture photos and videos, insert a Micro SD Card into the MicroSD Card Slotshown in the picture before turning on the aircraft. EVO supports SD card capacity up to 128GB, which creates the possibility of saving more pictures and videos during the flight. It is recommended that you use a Class 10 or UHS-1 Micro SD Card to catch high-definition videos.


Do not pull out the Micro SD Card from the aircraft when powered on, otherwise the video and photo files may be lost.

File Transmission


The Micro-USB Port on the back of the aircraft is used to transfer your photos and videos to the computer.
