Full description

Mantis Q – the foldable and convenient travel drone for small and big adventures alike. It listens to you thanks to voice control, and the visual tracking will let it follow you wherever you go. Whether you’re backpacking in Thailand, on a road trip through the South or with your family at the beach, Mantis Q’s energy-efficient design keeps in the air for up to 33 minutes and provides you with extraordinary photos and video clips from above.

“Wake Up” – The Mantis Q is the first camera drone from YUNEEC that can be intuitively controlled by voice command. Whether starting, landing or taking photos and videos: With commands such as “Come back” and “Start recording”, the Mantis Q can be easily controlled via voice commands. A list of voice commands can be found in the settings of the Yuneec Pilot App by clicking on the “i” next to the menu item “Voice Control”.

Whether you travel the world in a camper or make the Mantis your daily companion, the Instant Sharing function allows you to post your photos and videos directly from the app to social media so that your friends can get a glimpse into your adventures. Just smile at your drone if you like –if activated, the face detection let it take a picture of you as soon as it “sees” your face in a distance of up to 4m.

The Mantis takes pictures with a resolution of 4160×2340 (16:9) or 4160×3120 (4:3) pixels in JPEG or DNG format (for later editing) and saves them on the included MicroSD card; the same goes for the up to in 4K recorded videos. Videos up to 1920×1080 (1080P) are electronically and live stabilized over all three axes. The integrated camera can be tilted up to 20° upwards and 90° downwards during flight.

For cinematic camera flights, we also equipped the Mantis with automatic flight modes such as Journey or Point of Interest.

Depending on the desired setting, the Mantis Q will fly upwards on a linear path and then return automatically – making for the perfect shot.

Select an object while in POI (Point of Interest) mode and the YUNEEC Mantis Q will circle this object automatically.

With a push of a button, the Mantis Q will automatically return to a point near takeoff area and land by your side.

The Mantis flight controller is based on the familiar open source project PX4 which is known for being extremely stable and reliable. No video, photo or telemetry data is transferred unintentionally to any external server. The included controller allows a control distance of up to 800 m, (CE standard, FCC: 1,5 km).

The drone maintains its position and altitude independently and can be intuitively controlled without prior training. All settings and software updates are carried out via your smartphone’s touchscreen. If you want to limit the Mantis Q’s radius of action, you can easily do this with a virtual fence: and at the push of a button, you let the drone return to the launch point and then land automatically.

The drone not only brings back beautiful memories – it’s also a lot of fun! In Sport mode, the drone can reach top speeds of 72 km/h all while flying with the agility of a real racer. The live image can be viewed with a latency of less than 200 ms on your smartphone, which is connected to the remote control.

You can check the current location of the drone at any time via a map displayed in the app (map display requires an Internet connection). Open terrain is its favorite environment. However, thanks to IPS and ultrasonic sensors, the Mantis Q can be flown safely and stably at speeds of up to 15 km/h in indoor environments where neither GPS nor GLONASS satellites are available for positioning.

When folded together, the Mantis Q is only 168 x 96 x 58 mm; ready for take-off, it weighs less than 500 g. The drone comes in a standard setup that includes a remote control, a battery, spare propellers and a serial triple charger that charges up to three batteries in a row. The X Pack, which is also available, contains the drone and controller as well as three batteries and two sets of spare propellers. It comes in a small, practical photo bag.

Which smartphones work with the Mantis Q?
Apple: The minimum requirement for the Mantis Q is an iPhone 6S or higher Android: We recommend an Android phone with at least 4 processor cores (quad core) and a minimum speed of 2 GHz. Slower phones may experience limitations in advanced features that rely on processor performance (for example visual tracking, gesture control, face recognition). Phones with processor speeds below 1.4 GHz are not suitable for the secure operation of the Mantis Q.

Apple: iOS 9.0 or higher (iOS9 does not support voice control, iOS10 requires Internet connection for voice control, iOS11 supports local processing) Android: Android 5.0 or higher (voice control requires internet connection)
How do I bind the Mantis Q to the controller?
First, power on the controller and then the Mantis Q. Open the YuneecPilot app and click on the scan icon on the home screen of the app. Scan the QR code, that is placed on the side of the Mantis. This only needs to be done once - Upon next start, Mantis and controller will remember each other. Due to the DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) system it might take up to 60 seconds until everything is connected.
Can I change the video resolution?
Yes. In the YuneecPilot app, you can select from four different options. UHD (4K) = 3840x2160 @ 30 FPS FHD = 1920x1080 @ 30 FPS with digital stabilisation HD = 1280x720 @ 60 FPS with digital stabilisation
What is the flight time of the Mantis Q?
On a fully charged battery 3S 2800 mAh Lipo battery, the Mantis Q puts out a flight time of 33 minutes, when flying at a constant speed of 25 km/h with no wind. (Hovering time is approximately 30 minutes)
What type of battery is used in the Mantis Q and how long does it take to charge?
The Mantis Q uses a 3S 2800 mAh Lipo Battery and takes 1 hour to fully charge.
What intelligent flight modes can the Mantis Q perform?
The Mantis Q comes with intelligent flight modes such as Journey, POI (Point of Interest), and Visual Tracking. You can also fly in Angle mode to get smooth cinematographic shots, or in Sport Mode for a much faster flying experience.
How fast can Mantis Q fly?
The Mantis Q can fly at speeds of up to 21,6 km/h in Angle mode, 72 km/h in Sport and Manual mode, 18 km/h with phone (not recommended) and 14,4 km/h while flying indoors with IPS mode.
How does Face Detection work?
Face Detection is activated in the camera settings within the app. Once activated, the Mantis Q will be able to detect a face at a range from 1-4 meters. After the face has been detected, the Mantis Q will countdown from 3 seconds then snap a photo.
Can Mantis Q fly indoors?
Yes. Mantis Q comes equipped with ultrasonic sensor and indoor position system (IPS), making it safe and stable enough to fly indoors.
Does the Mantis Q automatically Return Home to its take off position when the battery gets past a certain percentage?
When the battery percentage on the Mantis Q gets to less than 20% , you will be prompted with an app interface indicating that the current battery is low. Meanwhile, the remote controller emits the low battery alarm and the aircraft will trigger an automatic return function due to low battery. Then the Mantis Q will automatically fly back to the take off point.
How does Voice Control work and how do I activate it?
Voice Recognition is enabled through the app and uses the microphone in your smart device to relay commands to Mantis Q. To activate Voice Recognition and simply “Wake Up”. From here you will be able to give flight commands such as “Take off” or “Land”. You can also give commands to take photos and videos such as “Start recording” or “Take a picture”. ATTENTION: The voice processing is done by Apple respectively Google.
What happens if I get a call in the middle of flying?
If you get a call in the middle of flying, Mantis Q can be controlled as usual.
Does the Mantis Q have No Fly Zones?
Yes. The Mantis Q is pre-programmed to prevent flying in national aviation authority designated no-fly zones. There are lots of great places to fly, but there are some restrictions. Make sure that you are aware of local regulations and permits before you fly! Always choose a wide-open area for every flight, well away from people and property. Never fly directly over people or animals!
