Yuneec’s Mantis Q will make you wish you bought a DJI drone

If you’re in the market for a low-cost 4K drone, there are better options than the Mantis Q. The shaky video will frustrate you, and the Parrot Anafi runs circles around it in terms of picture quality. Hell, even if the Anafi isn’t your speed, we recommend saving some cash and stepping up to the DJI Mavic Air. There are better options out there.

If you want to buy a small, 4K drone, the Mantis Q may jump out at you because of its price. Don't be tempted, even if your bookkeeper is asking you to rein in your spending. The Parrot Anafi is a better pick for budget shoppers—it's priced at $700, but often sells for less. We also like the DJI Mavic Air, which is priced at $800, and is tremendously better than the Mantis Q.

This foldable travel drone shoots 4K video and costs only £449. Is it a match for its fleet of DJI rivals?

If you don’t mind limiting your drone photography to a few aerial snaps and some snazzy low-altitude selfies, it can do a decent job for you. But if you want stable footage from high, the Mantis isn’t equipped for the task.

We like where Yuneec is headed

If you are looking for the flying experience and little more than to capture still photos from the sky, the Yuneec Mantis Q is a solid drone to consider. If you want to capture video from the sky, there are better drones out there today, but stay tuned for aversion 2 of this machine.

An inexpensive model that doesn't live up to its specs and fails to be a good budget option

We've seen a slew of small, portable models hit the market trying to compete with similar offerings from DJI. The YUNEEC Mantis Q falls into that category and unfortunately also falls short of being a viable DJI competitor. The Mantis Q's relatively shaky and low-quality video, along with a less than comfortable controller, make this a poor choice for most people. For significantly less you can now get a far superior DJI Spark and its corresponding controller. The only metric where the Mantis Qis better than the DJI Spark is in maximum flight time, offering an impressive 33 minutes to the Spark's 16. However, the Spark's video and flight performance attributes are so much better that you'll get twice the video quality, if only half the flight time.

The Mantis Q is a nimble, maneuverable drone, but the 4K video is shaky, and its voice-control feature is gimmicky.

The Yuneec Mantis Q feels like something of a missed opportunity. It's a nice, easy-to-fly and fast drone that shoots pretty good 1080p video. That might have been enough a couple of years ago, but competing drones like the Mavic Air are shooting steadier and more attractive 4K video for only $200 more. The Mantis Q's voice-control feature is neat, but it just isn't useful. As a result, it's hard to recommend the Mantis Q over similarly priced drones that offer more polished features.
