The New Autel Nano and Lite Series
Autel has a new product line that is already available in New Zealand. The EVO Nano Series, which comprises the EVO Nano and EVO Nano Plus, is Autel's tiny drone offering.
The Nano Series is a clear contender to the DJI Mini, and with rumours of a DJI Mini 3 announcement circulating the internet, the timing could be ideal to provide drone pilots with more options.
Here are the essentials about Autel's 249-gram small drone, the EVO Nano :
The camera has a resolution of 48 megapixels and can record in 4K.
Advanced Obstacle Avoidance 1/2′′ CMOS 3-axis gimbal with 3-way binocular vision sensors
Flight time is 28 minutes (Note, the threshold for drone registration in the U.S. is 250 grammes if you fly strictly recreationally: however, any drone must be registered if you fly under a Part 107 certification.)
For enhanced content creation, the EVO Nano series has subject tracking and cinematic features, as well as a beefed-up picture transmission system with a longer range and greater anti-interference capabilities.
The Autel EVO Lite series expands on these enhancements. The EVO Lite features the world's first 4-axis gimbal design, allowing for vertical video creation, according to Autel. The new series also includes useful equipment for night flight, given that legislation permitting flight at night have been implemented. Now that night flight laws have been passed, it includes a 1′′ CMOS image sensor, a clever "moonlight algorithm," and an adjustable aperture for more creative photographs.
