At CES 2020, Autel unveiled its new vary of EVO II drones. The vary contains the EVO II, the world's first 8K foldable shopper drone, the 6K EVO II PRO and the EVO PRO II Twin, which presents the flexibility to report 8K and thermal photographs.
The EVO 2 sequence presents the longest battery lifetime of all foldable drones (as much as 40 minutes of flight time). With a high velocity of 45 mph and as much as 9 km vary. The drones use a model new sensor and storage package deal and omnidirectional impediment avoidance.
You possibly can observe topics autonomously round obstacles at excessive velocity utilizing Autel's patented Dynamic Observe 2.zero ™ system and watch AI expertise create clever flight paths in actual time. Detection of dual-core objects acknowledges as much as 64 topics at a time, together with individuals, autos and animals.
Seems to be like a Mavic Professional 2
They definitely appear to have so much in frequent with the Mavic Professional 2 when it comes to design.
It folds up like a Mavic and seems to be very comparable in measurement.
All three variations of the EVO II use the very same cell. The great factor is that since all of them use the identical cell, you possibly can swap completely different cameras and gimbals. That is an attention-grabbing characteristic to have.
It's certain to make the headlines. There isn’t any different collapsible shopper drone able to recording 8K, not to mention 6K. Now, the EVO II can take 8K nonetheless photographs, however it's not 8K video simply to be clear.
All drones apparently have the flexibility to fireside in a Log profile.
What's attention-grabbing is that the drones appear to make use of part detection autofocus.
The EVO II makes use of a half of ″ CMOS sensor with 48 million efficient pixels. It has a most decision of 8000 × 6000 when taking pictures nonetheless photographs. For video, the decision is 7680 x 4320.
The issue is that the bit price is just 120 Mbps. Autel lists 10 bits however doesn’t say whether it is four: 2: 2 or four: 2: zero. It additionally doesn’t point out whether it is H. 265 or H.264.
The drone has an ISO vary of 100 to 3200. Sadly, it doesn't look like you possibly can modify the cease f of the lens used on the drone.
EVO II PRO
The EVO II PRO makes use of a bigger 1 "CMOS sensor with 20 million efficient pixels. It could actually take pictures at a most decision of 5472 x 3648.
The drone has an ISO vary of 100-12800. In contrast to the EVO II, the EVO II PRO has the flexibility to regulate the aperture of lenses from f2.eight to f11. The equal focal size of the lens is 28 mm.
The EVIO II PRO additionally has a bit price of solely 120 Mbps. Autel additionally lists 10 bits, however doesn’t say whether it is four: 2: 2 or four: 2: zero. It additionally doesn’t point out whether it is H.265 or H.264.
EVO II Twin
The EVO II Twin makes use of a half of ″ CMOS sensor and FLIR LWR. It has a most decision of 8000 × 6000 when taking pictures nonetheless photographs. For video, the decision is 7680 x 4320. When taking pictures thermal, the decision is restricted to 640 × 512.
The EVO II Twin appears appropriate for first responders, entrepreneurs, and so forth.
12 imaginative and prescient sensors
All drones have 12 imaginative and prescient sensors. Autel says the EVO II sequence can safely navigate round all obstacles.
The 12 imaginative and prescient sensors are managed by pc by a twin core processor and computerized studying by AI. Autel claims that EVO II drones can detect potential obstacles as much as 30 meters away.
Autel claims that EVO drones have a most flight time of 40 minutes (no wind), which is kind of unimaginable. Additionally they cite 35 minutes of hovering flight (no wind). EVO 2 presents security measures that allow you to know when the battery is low and when it's time to go dwelling.
The drones even have a management vary of as much as 9 km (5.59 miles). They use a 7100mAh rechargeable battery.
Drones weigh the next:

What are they recording on?
The three drones report on SD playing cards. The utmost card measurement you should utilize is 256 GB. It's unclear which class of card you need to use. Additionally they have eight GB of inside storage.
The sequel appears to be like higher than the unique
Autel launched EVO in 2016 and was instantly seen as a direct competitor to DJI Mavic. Though it has a really comparable characteristic specification and prices much less, it by no means actually took off when it got here to difficult DJI. Why? In all probability as a result of it supplied virtually an identical performance. In case you are not an enormous model, it’s important to supply greater than your opponents to draw consumers.
In contrast to the unique EVO, the EVO II fashions definitely supply one thing completely different from the present DJI MAVIC 2 Professional. Whether or not it is sufficient to tempt customers or skilled customers stays to be seen.
What do you consider these new drones? Tell us what you suppose within the feedback part.
Worth and availability
EVO II drones are at the moment in manufacturing. Worth and availability will probably be introduced quickly.
