Discus.

In the reviews I noticed the horizon being off a bit, also, a slight fish eye to the lens... I kind of like that.

What are your thoughts on the evo?

My thoughts are that until they don't release it... It's all but a joke to me. I don't trust a company with only a single drone as their only product for sale... That's tell me that they don't have not innovation at all.

A lot of the market will go for the evo, if dji wants to be king they’d need to squash autel sales by releasing a Mavic Pro 2 before the 25th, otherwise people’s monies will go to autel.

I really wanted to like this drone but it uses wifi so I won't be buying one unless they have found a way to make their wifi connection more reliable than other companies have.

No GEO nonsense, no data sent to China, built in screen, 4K at 60 fps, 100 mbs, rear sensors, 30 min flight time, very quiet. There is a lot to like about EVO.
If they were releasing the model with the 1" sensor, they could own this market.

It doesn’t use WiFi.
Same range as Mavic Pro

I see they claim same range as the MP but on their specs it says;

Video Link Frequency 2.4GHz~2.4835GHz
Receiver Frequency 2.4GHz~2.4835GHz

If not wifi what is it. Sorry I'm only techy enough to be dangerous.

It's actually a very impressive drone. It also uses 900 mHz, which will punch through obstacles a bit better than the shorter wavelengths. It has about the same range and speed as the MP. The gimbal is removable, and the Gimbal cable is plug-in. The camera shoots 4K @ 60 fps.

Autel claims that the Evo is much less susceptible to mag interference. If true, that's pretty good. So far, it seems slightly better than the MP, as expected. Its service center in Seattle is can be reached by phone 8 AM - 6 PM Pacific 7 days/week.

So far, it'll only be shipped with the 1/2.3" sensor, because of supply problems with the Sony 1" sensor. Maybe the same reason that the MP II isn't shipping yet.

I'm very impressed so far. But I'll still wait for the MP II.

Here's a link to a test flight:

Actually the 900 mHz was removed before the release, at least according to their online specs and the Autel representative who was commenting on their FB page yesterday. I wish I was wrong but it appears to be so.

ive had 2500 for 4 months waiting on a mp2 and came close several times to getting an obsidian but im fairly sure an Autel will join my stable of 2 MP'S,a phantom and a perky little spark.

Just finished charting with autel, 900mhz was scrapped because they want to sell in Europe and that signal is used there for emergency services.
They claim 7km on the 2.4mhz

Do u really believe that the evo is a “threat” to djis’ market share? It seems to me that dji makes quite good products and they have a good deal of saturation in the market. I think that autel would really have to have a stunningly reliable and performance product,not to mention a much lower price point,to unseat dji. However,good for autel! If their product does anything better than dji,for a better price....ma6be they will grab a sliver of the pie. I’m just a bit doubtful.

DJI makes a good product, and they sell a LOT of them, but their communistic business practices have, and will continue to displease people. when (not if) enough people become displeased with ridiculous NFZ, crappy customer service, warranty denials, etc ... SOMEBODY will step up as the "kinder, gentler drone manufacturer" and, yes, be a threat to DJI.
