We could all use a little adventure every now and then. Some of us like to kayak while others like to go hiking. Maybe axe throwing is your thing (that is a thing, really) or maybe it’s skydiving? Sometimes it might even just involve watching a crazy movie and trying someplace new to eat dinner. It’s all fine and it’s all worth doing if it gets you excited and feeling like your doing something great for yourself.
One great way to have an adventure that you may not even be thinking about right now is to capture amazing video from high in the air with some amazing technology, like the Autel Robotics EVO quadcopter drone with controller. Seriously, this is an amazing thrill.
Check out why The Evolution of flight has arrived in my video below!
Man, if you have never controlled a drone, you are missing out on some serious fun. The best part may be that the fun is actually on two completely and totally different levels. First, there’s the fun on controlling this amazingly responsive and really quick, well, plane. Yes, it’s a drone, but it’s really just like a mini-plane. And this plane can really move.
The level of speed and responsiveness is not something I originally anticipated when I first started using this drone. Sure, the box tells me everything will be honky dory, but this machine really delivers the goods.
The Amazing Autel Robotics EVO Drone
First, the Smart Controller with Built-In OLED screen is really easy to use. It looks and feels great in your hand, and the drone actually does each and every thing you tell it to. The topper is the awesome OLED screen, where you can check out what your drone is checking out…live and direct! The remote controller houses a 3.3-inch OLED screen providing you with critical flight information or a live 720p HD video feed letting you see the camera view without the need for a mobile device. It’s your co-pilot and it is awesome.
The EVO rocks out with up to 4.3 miles (7km) of range, up to 30min of flight time on one battery, and a top speed of 45mph! Do you know how fast that really is? It’s sick stuff, and it’s an awesome time. I mean, you can make this baby go hundreds of feet in the air (where permitted, check your local laws and regulations) with ease! Maybe it’s the overall design, with those the four propellers letting you precisely maneuver the drone into position.
I’m not sure exactly why it works so well, but I do know that it’s pretty stinking amazing, really. It’s a real rush and amazing feeling of power and freedom you can’t really understand until you take one for a spin.
To help you out on your adventure, there’s a number of aviation guidance and safety features built right in. Integrated advanced computer vision systems provide forward obstacle avoidance, rear obstacle detection and bottom sensors for more accurate landings and stable indoor flights. Dual GPS/GLONASS satellite positioning and advanced computer vision systems help avoid obstacles to ensure a safe and stable flight.
There’s even Smart Auto Pilot Flight and Coaching Modes showing me that the EVO really is set up to be as easy for the user as possible.
Finally, EVO offers failsafe features letting you know when the battery is low and it’s time to return to home and even helping you from landing on non-level surfaces two more computer vision cameras on the bottom of EVO!!
The Amazing Video Footage
As amazing as it is to actually control the Autel Robotics EVO drone, it’s almost just as amazing seeing the tremendous video and images you can capture while you’re doing it!
Equipped on the front EVO offers a powerful camera on a 3-axis stabilize gimbal that records video at 4k resolution up to 60 frames per second and a recording speed up to 100mbps in an H.264 or H.265 codec. Using real-glass optics EVO captures stunning photos at 12 megapixels with 94° field-of-view dynamic range for more details and color. In other words, the images and video are state-of-the-art and a real adventure to check out when your travels have ended. The ride is amazing, the video afterwards is just as amazing.
The Smartphone App
While the controller is amazing as is, there’s even more greatness with the EVO! You can download the free Autel Explorer app available for Apple iOS or Android devices and connect to the remote controller and gain access to more advanced settings and autonomous flight features like Dynamic Track, Viewpoint, Orbit, VR first person view and Waypoint mission planning!
You can also easily beam what your drone sees through its camera straight to your phone or tablet using a free iOS and Android app so you can go on a virtual flight, set up great photographs, and monitor telemetry data.
There’s so much more in the app, you won’t believe it. Plus, there’s a place on the controller to mount your smartphone, so you can use the app as well as the controller screen simultaneously.
Other Cool Features
You don’t even have to commonage the Autel Robotics EVO if you don’t want to! That’s right, there’s an during autonomous flight mode where Intelligent algorithms are constantly running, making long-range decisions for path planning around obstacles. How ridiculously impressive is that?
Your EVO is also ready to go right out of the box. In addition to the EVO and smart controller, the Truly (RTF) Ready to Fly package includes a SD Card, Charger, Battery, and Spare Props. It barely took anytime to charge it out of the box to boot!!
The EVO is even easy to store, with a compact folding design, ready to go wherever your adventure takes you.
So there you have it, the Autel Robotics EVO 4K Drone with Controller. Do I seem like I’m gushing? Well, that’s because I kind of am. The whole experience was so easy, so seamless, and so much fun. It truly is an amazing adventure to control such a sophisticated air-born machine. If you told me this would be possible when I was a kid, I probably wouldn’t have believed you.
Imagine seeing your neighborhood from just above the tree-line, or going to your local park, beach, or mountains and taking in the sights and sounds in ways you never have dreamed of. It’s all possible and it is just as cool as you could not imagine it to be. It’s a whole new perspective on life and will really show you the beauty that surrounds you. It gave me some new insights and a new appreciation for how great my hometown is. The video also really gives you some amazing perspective in how grand the world really is and how lucky we all are just to be a tiny, minute part of it. If that’s not adventure, I don’t know what is.
