Xdynamics EVOLVE Maiden Flight Test Review – [In-Depth with Range Test, Pros & Cons + BEE ATTACK!]
It is the Xdynamics EVOLVE In-Depth flight check overview! Let’s put it by way of its paces with some bonus vary checks & a BEE ATTACK! That is Half 2 of a full collection …
Best reviewer out there. I watch a lot of the drone reviewers and the top guys are good but they seem to be a bit bias at times. You tell the truth, good or bad. You also show the stuff that I want to know about, like range, speed, RTH, stability, and transmission quality. Good job once again??
Wonder if you ever had an inflight crash (system or mechanical) that caused the drone to drop like a rock? In general, any drone.
Dustin… Dustin… you are the man. I want to go back to Hawaii just to fly with you..
Me : (Sees Evolve) wow
me: (sees mavic) aww
I'll stick my my Anafi and Bebop 2 haha, thanks for the review!!!
Great video Dustin but Xdynamics must try harder and get realistic with their pricing. Keeping my Mavic pro for now.
When they made that drone why did they bother to get out of bed that morning.
WOW, EPIC FAIL in 2019 drone standards. On paper, the specs weren't that great to begin with, but I was hoping to see if the Evolve might possibly exceed it's listed specs. You have to wonder, did the folks at XDynamics ever actually FLY this drone – or was it all designed on a computer, assembled and shipped out without any field tests? If you're gonna charge a premium price ($2499), you should ship a premium product. This, at best, seems to be a mediocre implementation of a good design. A terrible first entry for this company.
It's quite loud..ha.ha.ha.
Great review Dustin, but I'll stick with my Xiaomi.
The camera colors are nice…
Transmitter is really beautiful…
But aside from that, not sure how you can justify the cost.
Especially when other established systems exist for a MUCH lower cost.
Im not sure if this is their first commercial/pro drone or whether the company has other drones produced for other market's, but I have a feeling, based on your review and others ive seen, that this is gonna be a big flop.
I have no idea how DJI does it, but their cost/quality ratio just destroys everything else in the market.
…including the Evolve.
I guess this one is more for like a wedding or picture session, not much range. However the video and options for video are impressive. Seems like this would be great for a production and video photography business. Great review.
Dustin, I'm thinking of downsizing to a smaller drone such as Spark. I don't think this is a typical review for you but would you consider doing a "Is it still worth it/the best of the current market." type of review?
For that kind of a price you would think out of the box ready with no trouble with anything.
Only 1 place for drone reviews: This channel!
Can't help but wonder how there are a few videos showing these same issues with this drone and then there is one popular YouTube channel showing nothing but rainbows and sunshine with this drone. The things that make you go HMMMMM. Such a good looking drone. I hope they can get it worked out soon.
great camera but the whole drone is nowhere near 2500 dollars worth. Even my xiro xplorer v which is a very cheap drone is far more accurate in rth than this.
I’ll stick to my. Oldie but goodie phantom 2 with gopro hero4 and h3 3D Gimbal
Pricey but awesome quality image and video…
Mavic 2 is my drone of choice! Thx
that thing is LOUD
Thanks for the review. Is it possible that the Evolve tracks the controller like Yuneec drones do and puts a "safe circle" around the control to prevent it from coming too close to the pilot? I thought I read that the Evolve does have that feature which would account for the 10 foot RTH offset. I thought it was a dynamic RTH where it RTH'd to the controller rather than the actual take off point.
For the money the Evolve is definitely not worth it. Even if it had no bugs, glitches and even had a 4 mile range, the fact that it doesn't have a 1 inch sensor on the camera let alone a 4K 60FPS camera really makes me look away.
It's a pretty sharp looking drone however not really impressed. I was waiting till it came out and was thinking of maybe getting it but now way to many issues and really pricey. will wait to see any other updates you post but I'm leaning to a no on this bird! Great and honest review and thanks for sharing!
Wow awesome video!
My lil spark and crazy retarted typhoon h seem to be much better that this expensive thing
Very informative video Dustin!! Hopefully in the next firmware update, it will correct the minor issues it has
So much money
Another great review. I love watching these, even if I'm not interested in the toy that blue sky is not something we get in Korea.
2500 us$?. To expensive. For that money you can buy 2 mavic zoom or an Enterprise
Why in the world would anyone spend $2500 on this? It's way too buggy to have been pushed onto the market. My Bebop 2 has better return to home accuracy than this, hell my Disco has better return to home accuracy! Losing FPV at 1380 ft? If i want that I'll fly my Phantom 3 standard! Overall I'm not very impressed with this drone,XDynamics has alot of work to do to make this worth it's price tag. Thanks Dustin for being impartial and honest,great video. I look forward to the range test but am not expecting big numbers.
Excellent build quality is useless if it it doesn't perform properly ! They have some serious catching up to do to even come close to DJI not to mention the limited functionality for the price they are asking. Should spent more recourses in software development. The platform looks good …….just too bad it doesn't work.
OMG it reminds me of the old CX20?
Give me the Mavic zoom or the underdog the Parrot bebop power or the Parrot Anafi anyday.
