Yuneec Mantis Q Review - What is the Differences

 Yuneec has introduced the Yuneec Mantis Q, a drone with an integrated 4K camera, electronic image stabilization and voice control. The model is designed for both outdoor and indoor use, utilizing down-facing dual sensor alongside infrared detection to navigation inside buildings. Mantis Q includes a controller with a smartphone mount in addition to the voice control.

 The Mantis Q drone boasts an impressive ‘claimed’ flight-time of 33 minutes, a maximum speed of 44 miles per hour as well as 4K and full HD video capabilities, although the 3-axis digitally stabilized “gimbal” for full HD only, is a bit of a let-down. This new drone from Yuneec will feature an all-new voice control feature which we are looking forward to trying out ourselves.

 Yuneec presents the Mantis Q as an adventure-ready drone controlled via mobile device or remote that can easily be brought along hiking or camping trips. With the arms folded this little aircraft is reduced into a small 6.6 x 3.8 x 2.2 inch package, weighing less than one pound.  

 Yuneec’s new drone can reportedly respond to commands like “record a video,” “take a picture,” and “take a selfie.” You can even turn the Mantis Q on with a spoken “wake up” command.

Of course, the Mantis Q will have to hear you for those commands to work — and Yuneec doesn’t say how close you need to be in order for the drone to hear your commands, or how environmental noise like the wind may play a role.

 If yelling at the sky isn’t your style, Yuneec has also integrated facial recognition into the drone, allowing a smile to trigger a photo from up to 13 feet away. Similarly, the quad’s built-in gesture controls allow you to trigger a shot with a wave of your hand

 The Yuneec Mantis Q can also be controlled by gestures and uses facial detection to automatically take a photo of your smiling face from up to 13 feet away. Pictures with a resolution of 4800×2700 (16:9) or 4160×3120 (4:3) pixels are saved in JPEG or DNG format on the included MicroSD card; the same goes for up to 4K of recorded videos.

 Although it seems that only Full HD video(1920 x 1080) will be digitally stabilized, not the 4K. We will verify this when we get our hands on one. The camera can be tilted upwards by up to 20 degrees or downwards by 90 degrees during flight. Lastly, the Mantis Q also features a host of intelligent flight modes, such as Journey, Point of Interest and Orbit Me.


 DJI's Spark isn't the only game in town if you want a small, relatively powerful drone with a semi-reasonable price tag. Yuneec has launched US pre-orders for the Mantis Q, a robotic flier that blurs the lines between 'budget' drones like the Spark and higher-end counterparts like the Mavic Air. For $500, you're mostly getting technology that would normally require a much costlier outlay, including 4K video recording, infrared- and sonar-based indoor stabilization, and foldable arms that make it easy to shove in a backpack. There are even relatively rare features like voice control, face detection, a 44MPH top speed and a comparatively lengthy 33-minute flight time.

There are sacrifices. It's certainly bulkier than a Spark-class drone at 6.6 inches long and a weight just over 1 pound. You're also looking at a vertical-only camera gimbal that won't please dedicated drone cinematographers. This is more for capturing your vacation or taking an aerial selfie than producing a masterpiece.

 Yuneec hasn't said when the Mantis Q will ship, but frequent drone navigators will want to be patient. A $650 X-Pack bundle will give you two extra batteries and a shoulder bag when it arrives later in 2018. It probably won't tempt you if you're mostly concerned with image quality and the size of the feature checklist. It might, however, be tempting if you'd like more than a starter drone without paying as much as you might on a nice computer.
