When people think of high-end drones, DJI usually comes to mind, but Autel Robotics isn’t far behind if at all. The company recently showcased its new consumer drone at CES 2020, and it will definitely turn some heads. The EVO II is touted as the world’s first portable 8K drone, thanks to a modular design with a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor capable of capturing 8K video (8000×6000) and 48MP stills. Read more for two videos, including a hands-on, and additional information.
When fully charged, you can expect a flight time of around 40-minutes, and so far, that’s the longest battery life of any foldable drone on the market. Don’t let the long battery life fool you, as it still has a top speed of 45mph, and a transmission range of over 5 1/2 miles, making it even more practical than the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
