One of my customers asked me if I could review the clone DJI Mavic Pro look a like drone and compare it with the real deal so people can see the difference in the money they are paying.
The Attop XT – 1 (DJI Clone) is a toy for people to play with where the DJI Mavic Pro is a professional drone creating top quality footage for different applications, discovery of wild animals, sports activities and general holiday happy snaps are just some.
A lot of people are getting confused with the clone drone that they are seeing advertised in different places such as Facebook, they are only a fraction of the price of a DJI Mavic Pro but they look the same which confuses people.
Let me tell you why they are cheaper so people don’t get disappointed when they have their first flight and run out of battery after 7 minutes of use, the camera is only a 2MP / 720 which is OK for the money you pay.
Do not expect this drone to power off into the sun set as it only has 100 metres maximum range, this is important for people to consider.
But for a bit of fun for the price I think we should all have a shot at this little drone .
Another DJI clone drone is the new Attop XT-1: a finely crafted quadcopter with an integrated camera. Attop’s quadrocopter is designed to be an excellent entry-level drone. The build quality is generally good and we find ourselves in the hands a well-piloted drone, both at low and high speed, and usable both inside and outside thanks to the different flight modes. The 2MP camera allows you to take photos and videos and can be used while you pilot to follow the drone route thanks to 2.4 GHz WiFi technology. This drone is equipped with various flight modes suitable for those who are beginners and those who want to have fun with evolution. The 800 mAh battery guarantees a flight time of 7 minutes, enough to have some fun. The price/quality ratio is excellent: Attop XP-1 is sold for only $34.56.
For $729 you get a professional drone DJI Mavic Pro which can all most do anything.
