Autel Robotics is set to launch two new drones next week: the EVO Nano and EVO Lite, but the news cycle is being dominated by a DJI drone that has yet to be announced: the Mavic 3. So, to steer the conversation back to its upcoming products, Autel has officially dropped the first images and specs of the Nano and Lite series, days before their release.
The Nano is a sub-250-gram beginner’s drone that is being pegged as the DJI Mini 2 killer. The Lite, meanwhile, is aimed at professional content creators – aka the main target market of DJI Air 2S. Their official launch is planned for September 28.
Now, we already have some idea about their specifications through various leaks, and the birds have already been spotted in the wild, but the product snapshots provided by Autel confirm some of the most important aspects of its forthcoming drones.
At the same time, Autel has taken the opportunity to point out that the Nano and Lite series drones are “just a taste of what’s to come” and that users should expect even more products soon. We know that one of those products would be the Autel EVO III. Will there be others? Time will tell. For now, let’s get back to Nano and Lite.
Autel EVO Nano
Weighing 249 grams and featuring three-way obstacle avoidance, this entry-level drone from Autel will shoot 4K video and have a live view transmission range of 6.2 miles. Depending on the model you choose, you get two different image sensor sizes: ½-inch or 1/1.28-inch. The color options are even broader; you get to choose from Autel Orange, Arctic White, Deep Space Gray, and Blazing Red. The maximum flight time is 30 minutes.
Autel EVO Lite
Here also, the image sensor size depends on the model you choose, either 1/1.28-inch or 1-inch. Apart from the sensor size, the features on paper are about the same as the Nano: 4K video, 30 minutes of flight time, three-way obstacle avoidance, and a 6.2 miles transmission range. The EVO Lite weighs 820 grams and will be made available in three colors: Autel Orange, Arctic White, and Deep Space Gray.
For more info, stay tuned on September 28!
