EVO II Pro 6K Rugged Bundle V3

Providing professional filmmakers and photographers with some serious imaging capabilities is the Pro 6K V3. Coming stock with an all new 20-Megapixel (MP) complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) 1" Sony sensor, this drone can capture up to 6K Ultra HD Video in up to 29.97 frames per second (fps) as well as still images at up to 12-bit DNG. The drone comes chock-full of a variety of features, such as a variable aperture from f/2.8~f/11, Autel’s moonlight algorithm 2.0 for excellent nighttime performance, 360° obstacle avoidance, advanced dynamic tracking that accurately tracks and predicts a subject’s trajectory, and much more. With 40 minutes of flight time, a 9.3-mile transmission range, 45-mph top speed, and maximum wind resistance of 27 mph, users can confidently fly in the air and remain up even in unfavorable conditions. The Pro 6K V3 also comes with the Autel Smart Controller SE; featuring a 6.4-inch OLED screen, the smart controller is a fully customizable android system allowing users to implement third-party apps seamlessly to optimize usage to one's liking. It features a removable battery, as well as an 8-core processor for crispy HD image transmission.

EVO II Pro 6K Enterprise Bundle V3

Building on the extremely capable body of the standard Pro 6K V3 but introducing more functional industrial application-based utilities is the Enterprise Bundle. An excellent choice for first responders that, thanks to its modularity, allows users to attach a loudspeaker, strobe, and spotlight. On top of that, the Enterprise comes with a built-in ADS-B receiver that helps users detect and avoid any manned aircraft in nearby airspace to prevent mid-air collisions. The enterprise drone also boasts the capability to map and reconstruct landscapes and architecture in a 3D environment for later use by maintaining a consistent, steady flightpath.

EVO II Dual 640T Rugged Bundle V3

Coming in as the most industrial and first-responder-oriented of the bunch is the 640T. Unique to this model, the 640T offers a dual camera design that features a thermal imaging sensor, supporting a range of 10 thermal color palettes, radiometric temperature detection, and a variety of temperature measurement tools to help distinguish points of interest with ease. A nifty picture-in-picture allows a thermal and standard video feed to give users the best of both worlds simultaneously when it comes to capturing data. The 640T also shares flight specs with the other two drones in the EVO series, such as the 45-mph top speed, 360° obstacle avoidance, and Dynamic Track 2.1

EVO Max 4T

Stepping away from the EVO II lineup and into the more heavy-duty, fully industrial side of things, we have the Max 4T. Designed to tackle a wide array of tasks with ease, users can employ a 50MP wide camera, a 48MP zoom camera, a thermal camera, and even a laser rangefinder. Plan 3D flight paths with a high level of accuracy for landscape reconstruction that includes detailed information on the surrounding environments, from mountain ranges to manmade structures. Advanced anti-jam and anti-interference modules shield the 4T from any RFI, EMI, or GPS impingements; this is not only an excellent feature in warding off unwanted intrusions from any possible outside spoofing from unwarranted individuals, it is critical in ensuring that the drone functions to the best of its abilities when being deployed in high-interference areas such as near power lines and various other critical structures. The 4T is also excellent for large-form projects that require multiple points of connection and perspectives since it features an all-new A-mesh system, which effectively allows it to connect and communicate seamlessly between a fleet of drones. Fleet control can be commanded from one operator or be divided up among a team of pilots. From its ability to operate in GPS-denied areas that would render most drones unusable, to its IP43 rating―which brushes off inclement weather with ease―to its fully autonomous mission capabilities, the 4T is without a doubt an absolute workhorse of a drone intended for those in demanding industry fields.

EVO Max 4N

Building on the same body and features of the 4T, but with the added capabilities of the Starlight camera, is the Max 4N. Combining high-resolution optics and powerful night vision, users can tackle low-light scenarios with ease. The Starlight camera boasts an impressive 100-450,000 ISO range, as well as a 1-8x zoom range, making the 4N an ideal choice for drone operators who not only need the industrial reliability and professional features that come with the Max line, but an effective and fool-proof nighttime/low-light flying solution.

EVO Lite+

For those looking to capture stunning aerial footage, the EVO Lite+ is a feature-packed drone that costs a fraction of the price of those in the EVO II line. With its 3-axis gimbal, 1" CMOS sensor, 6K/30 video capabilities, adjustable aperture from f/2.8-f/11, filmmakers will have access to several features that allow the Lite+ to hold its own. Four automatic shooting modes allow users to snag shots that would otherwise be difficult to capture manually; shuffle between the rocket, fade away, orbit, and flick modes to create professional movements effortlessly, all at the click of a button. The Lite+ has an impressive 40-minute flight time, as well as a 7.4-mile transmission range. Tracking is also available with Dynamic Track 2.1, allowing the drone to snap on to a subject of your choice. While the Lite+ is not free of blind spots as its higher end siblings, it still boasts a nice 150° field of view for its obstacle avoidance.

EVO Nano+

Pint-sized and coming in at a light 249 grams is the Nano+, the most compact drone on this list. The Nano+ comes fitted with a 1/1.28" CMOS sensor that can produce images with a maximum resolution of 50MP and up to 4K30P video. It shares many of the professional features that we saw in the Lite+, such as the four automatic shooting modes, Dynamic Track 2.1, and even obstacle avoidance. With a maximum range of 6.2 miles and up to 28 minutes of flight time, users can confidently expect to stay in the air during longer flights.
