Great, but will give 5 Stars when further functions released

Soul Thief

Autel Robotics could be considered the underdog in the drone world, however they are really kind of the best kept secret. Their customer service is top notch and always professional. They offer their customers a more personal experience, rather than just being a number. They also listen to the feedback of their customers, including requests and suggestions in their updates. The reason for the 4 stars is the current lack of live streaming capabilities and tracking options on the drone. Once these are implemented I will be changing to 5 stars. Hopefully, we will see the release of the 20MP camera very soon as for now I am holding off on another drone purchase awaiting this.

Good app BUT it does not work with latest iOS 11.2


Great app and a much needed one for the Autel and — it did work flawlessly. After the 11.2 iOS update, many features are now useless. You will be able to view your flight in the app, height and distance as well. However many features, options do now work anymore. Gimbal adjustments, formatting memory card, etc. Changing video, photo settings especially cannot be accomplished. You can still take video and photos via the RC (not the app, buttons are not functional are now grayed out) but as of now you are simply guessing that the app/drone is actually capturing your footage.

If you own Autel and have not upgraded your devices to 11.2, do NOT update the Apple firmware right now. The Starlink app will be very limited and extremely frustrating to use.

**From what I understand “XStar relies on iAP2 communications” - and “until Apple fixes the iAP2 support, this app will not work properly.”

Can’t say I’m happy with this news. So right now it seems Autel is waiting on Apple to fix the problem. And right now my drone is grounded until the issue has been resolved.

Distance and Video response has plummeted


After applying this update my X-Star Premium has become my least favorite drone to fly. It seems like it is stuck in beginners mode.
The video dropout it horrible now, and this is when flying where there aren’t any homes. I am talking about pure farmland in AR. I have now put this drone away until another update comes out, and have gone back to flying my DJI Phantom 4. I have had my Phantom 4 for many months before buying my X-Star Premium. When I started flying the Aurelia it quickly became my favorite over the DJI, but like I mentioned that has reversed for now. Come on Autel! Release a new update with more video power from the controller. I wish my Autel flew like it did before the update.
