The ZLL SG108 Pro, or YAN2 is a small, compact drone that has a 4K camera on a two-axis gimbal. It has GPS stability and a handful of intelligent flight modes. This was built to compete with the other Minis of the world: Mavic Mini, DJI Mini 2, Hubsan Zino Mini, Bugs 19 Mini, and Xiaomi Fimi Mini. The biggest difference is most of those mini drones cost $400 or more. The SG108 Pro starts at around $125.

While on paper it may look like the ZLL SG108 Pro can compete with some of these other drones it cannot in two important categories, camera, and weight. While it is listed as a 4K camera you’ll find that it is upscaled 4K and the two-axis gimbal struggles to stabilize footage in even the lightest of winds. The other important thing that you need to know about the ZLL SG108 Pro YAN2 is that it weighs 275 grams. In spite of the label that says 249g on its front arm this thing must be registered with the FAA and is subject to all the rules and regulations that come with drones over 250 grams.
If you are ok with the weight and camera quality isn’t high on your list of important features then the SG108 Pro is actually a solid option. It is a low-cost beginner drone that is a lot of fun to fly. I’d recommend this to anyone that wants to learn how to fly but doesn’t have the budget for something bigger. The brushless motors help give it a flight time of up to 25 minutes. It has a top speed of about 13 mph and a range of about half a mile.
The video resolution tops out at 2048×1080 @25 fps but is upscaled to 4K for photos. The live FPV video feed is transmitted back to your smartphone via an AC or “5G” connection so you’ll need a newer smartphone to operate it.
The SG108 Pro has return to home, follow me, orbit, and waypoints. You can control the gimbal from the remote and even zoom in up to 50x digitally when flying. The picture quality is pretty solid. Overall this is a good beginner drone that won’t break the bank, but it doesn’t belong in the same class as drones like the DJI Mini 2 or Xiaomi Fimi Mini.
