    I have been looking a lot at the Autel X-Star lately, it seems like an awesome craft. Youtube video reviews rate it higher than the Phantom 4. X-Star owners, how would you compare it to the P3A? I am mostly interested in range/flyaway risk/general impression. I am not a professional photographer, I just fly for fun so minor differences in the camera does not matter much. Iv heard Autel's customer service is awesome while DJI's is horrible (never experienced it though).

    It might be a good quad but if it hasn't got lightbridge then I'm not interested

    I didn't see those thread, thank you! Doink, it doesn't have lightbridge but I think it has something similar, the main problem I have with DJI is their poor customer service. It seems they rarely take responsibility for issues caused by defective products and often refuse to honor their vague warranty (this is typical Chinese style service, my wife is Chinese and we live in China most of the year). According to the threads above Autel seems to be quite the opposite.
