Nano premium bundle kit and some of our early thoughts on flying the drone, along with some sample footage. So you can see what kind of quality you can expect. The tl dr version, though, is that this seems to be a pretty nifty little drone falling under 250 grams. It escapes many more extensive drone regulations worldwide. It flies great and offers some impressive wind resistance performance once the firmware is complete with all of the promised features. This one seriously gives dji a run for its money. The autel evo nano is technically a competitor to the dji mini 2 and the hubs and xeno mini se, although its also sort of not while it falls into the same way category its aimed more towards severe photographers and filmmakers, who want a tiny drone and demand. More advanced features features like obstacle avoidance, which neither of the other drones mentioned, possess, thats, probably the most significant selling point of the autel evo nano. It has front rear and underside collision avoidance sensors, while flying these also act as active sensors to let you know right on your smartphone display when youre getting too close to something in front behind or below you, and it works well too actively preventing you from flying Forward or backward if it detects that something is in the way to get the most speed out of the drone, though you do have to kick it up into sport mode and disable the collision avoidance sensors.

After all, even if the sensors were enabled at 30 miles per hour, stopping quickly enough would be tricky with the collision avoidance. Sensors turned on, i managed to get up to about 20 miles per hour once they were disabled. I got up to just over 27 miles per hour, but there were some pretty strong winds in ideal conditions. Under no wind autel says it should hit 15 meters per second around 33 miles per hour. This is by far the smallest drone ive ever flown. Having typically stuck to relatively large hexacopters like the dji f550, if youve never used a less than 250 grams drone before theyre, a fantastic addition to the tool bag for location, photographers being able to whip out a drone to shoot behind the scenes for social media blogs, Etc is pretty invaluable, especially when you can leave it hovering in the air following you, while the autel evo nano premium comes with its shoulder bag, the drone and controller are relatively small. The drone itself is smaller than most lenses. Youd stick into your bag and the controller feels very much more like a games console controller rather than the significant clunky rc controllers that some of us might be used to so its easy to stuff in your backpack, with the rest of your camera gear. To use at a moments notice and because the controller and drone batteries can all charge off type c usb, you can leave them charging from a power bank in your bag in between uses to make sure they stay, topped up and ready to go when needed.

That being said, the battery life seems quite reasonable. Officially, youll get 28 minutes of flight time in ideal conditions, with no wind in tilde 20 miles per hour winds. I was getting closer to around 24 minutes per drone battery. The controllers battery lasted for all three drone batteries before the app started yelling at me, the controller was getting low and i should land soon speaking of the home physician, it can be reset mid flight by default, its the location from which you take off. If you hit the home button, itll fly back to the same spot to land, but if, like me, you often fly and walk simultaneously filming as you physically make your way towards a destination, then you dont want to have to walk back to your starting point. To go collect your drone, so you can reset the home position to the current operators job to make it come to you when you hold the home button. The footage coming out of the drone is rather good, although youtube compression. Does it no favors, it would be nice if there were a higher bitrate option than 100 mb s, even with h.265 encoding. That being said, 100 mb s is perfectly fine for many subjects. You might point the camera at theres just a lot of fine detail in leafless scottish forest this time of year and when the drones flying quickly, you do lose a little of it. There are also no color profile options available.

Yet this is something else id like to see. That would be fantastic if we could choose an excellent flat profile with low contrast and saturation that we can correct and grade in the post for stills its, not a problem, because youre able to shoot dng raw files and process them exactly how you wish. But for video or shooting jpg a flat profile would be beneficial.
