  The Autel company has put up a tough competition for DJI in the drone industry. Their drones have excellent performance and innovative design, which is bound to attract you. If you are looking for a drone that is both safe and stable, then I suggest you look at Autel Robotics EVO. Autel Robotics Evo is reliable. The 12MP camera allows you to take stunning aerial photographs and 4K videos.

  It also has a 3-axis gimbal, which reduces vibration during the shoot. It has a top speed of 45 mph and a flight time of 30 minutes, making it a worthy competition. The control range is up to 7Kms, which is good.

Special features:

 Some of the notable special features are:

  • Satellite + Visual Positioning (dual-module GPS + GLONASS)
  • Out-of-Control Course Reversal
  • Hand-gesture mode
  • Selfie Mode
  • Smart Follow
  • One-Key takeoff/landing


 When we talk about Autel Robotics Evo, we should talk about its color scheme. The bright orange color is an intelligent choice. While other drone companies mostly opt for repeated black and white colors, the Autel Robotics has taken a different road altogether. The orange color helps you to spot your drone easily. The design is eye-catchy and foldable, which makes the drone easy to carry.

 The drone’s dimension is 5.5 x 5.5 x 10 inches, making the drone extraordinarily portable and can fit right into your camera bag. It weighs around 1.90 pounds (861 grams). Please note that the drone comes with folded propellers. Unfold the propeller carefully before the flight. The high-quality 4K camera is in front of the drone. The obstacle sensors are in the drone’s tail and nose area.


   The Autel Robotics Evo comes with a 12-megapixel camera that can record 4K videos at 60 FPS. The camera is placed on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal for explicit photos and videos. The drone withstands acute weather but still gives you high-quality shots and footages. The camera pixel is less than other high-end drones (DJI drones) but it still serves its purpose.

   The resulting photos and videos are great for post-production purposes. And due to 3-axis stabilized gimbals, the 4K video has no shakes or distortion. You can shoot 2.7K at 60FPS, 48FPS, and 30FPS, 1080p at 120FPS, and 720p at 240FPS.If you are a traveling photographer, this drone is a great companion for you. The image has great hue and less noise. The images are sure to stun anyone who sees them.

Battery and flight time:

   The Autel Robotics Evo comes with a 4300mAh Lithium Polonium battery, which provides you with an impressive 30 minutes of flight time. This flight time is enough for any professional drone operators who can take amazing shots within the given time. Even for beginners, 30 minutes is a substantial time to know your drone. But the flight time varies according to the type of flight and the weather condition. If you feel like 30 minutes is not enough, I recommend you to buy some extra batteries to increase your flight time.

Flight speed range:

  The maximum flight speed of Autel Robotics Evo is 45mph (72kph), which is as speed as DJI drones. Even at top speed, the Autel Evo gives you some impressive photos and videos without compromising quality. The flight range is 4.3 miles, which is excellent. It is the same range as Mavic Pro, but the DJI has improved the flight range in their Mavic Pro 2. But at the given price of Autel Evo, the flight range of the drone is great.


  The controller’s operating frequency is 2.4GHz and can work at a maximum distance of about 4.35 miles. It has a built-in battery that is 6700mAh, which can last up to 7 hours, depending on your usage. The display resolution is 1280 x 720, which is impressive. You don’t need a smartphone to see the visuals because the controller has a default built-in screen. But if you want to attach your smartphone to the controller and see the live feed, you can do that too.

Overall review:

  Autel has shown the ability to update the drone with firmware very well, like gimbal issues in previous firmware modes. Autel has a company in the United States. Customer support is seven days a week. When it comes to electronics, companies with the best customer support is also a huge plus. So you can ask yourself, “Should I buy this or something like the Mavic Pro 2?” Well, it all depends on what you want. However, you're going to probably get the better dynamic range out of the Autel Evo, and also, you're going to get 4 K at 60FPS. Autel doesn’t have a fly more package like DJ I does, but their batteries are relatively inexpensive and last a long time. I recommend picking up at least one extra battery if you're going to be flying a drone. So should you buy the Autel Robotics Evo? Absolutely yes!
