Dual GPS/GLONASS Systems + Autonomous Flight: Dual GPS/GLONASS
satellite positioning and advanced computer vision systems help avoid obstacles
to ensure a safe and stable flight. Utilizing two cameras on the front giving it
binocular vision, EVO creates a 3D environment and reacts to obstacles in the
way. Intelligent algorithms are constantly running during autonomous flight,
making long-range decisions for path planning around obstacles. Two ultrasonic
sensors paired with two more computer vision cameras on the bottom of EVO, help
protect the aircraft from landing on unlevel surfaces. On the rear of the
aircraft, EVO is equipped with a near IR sensor protecting you when flying
- Forward & Rear Visions System: The Forward Vision
System installed on the front of the aircraft using image data to detect the
distance between the aircraft and obstacles. The aircraft will brake by itself
when obstacles are detected in front. At the same time, infrared sensors located on the rear of the aircraft are also
capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion,
which will help the aircraft avoid obstacles in a different way.
- StarPoint Positioning System: The StarPoint
Positioning System installed
functions through Binocular
the bottom of the aircraft. The sensors identify the current height of the
aircraft through ultrasound, and the camera obtains location information through
image analysis. With the help of the StarPoint
the aircraft can hover in place more precisely when flying indoors or in other
environments where the GPS signal is unavailable.
Return-to-Home + Precision Landing: Built-in failsafe features like
Return-to-Home call the aircraft back to its home point when the battery is low
or the remote control signal is interrupted. You can also manually activate the
Return-to-Home function and send the drone back to its starting position. Using the Precision Landing feature
the cameras on the bottom of EVO will capture reference images and use them
during the Return-to-Home providing pinpoint precision during the landing
sequence. When the aircraft arrives above the return-to-home point location, it will detect ground conditions during the landing
descent. It will scan and
match the terrain and will land as close as possible to the
take-off point once the current terrain matches take-off point terrain. The aircraft will land automatically
if the terrain matches and looks safe; otherwise it will hover in-place to wait the next command.
Intelligent Flight Modes: The EVO offers the following Intelligent
Flight Modes through the Autel Explorer on your compatible Apple iOS 9.0+ or

will be solid red to help you identify the direction of the aircraft's nose, and
the rear indicators show the current flight status of the aircraft.
XI-5A Camera Gimbal: The EVO's camera is built on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal
capturing stunning video at 4k resolution & 60 frames per second and
12-megapixel still images. Using real glass optics and the Ambarella H2 image processor,
the camera can record more dynamic range in each shot. You'll be able to capture wide-angle perspective with 94° field-of-view and crystal-clear still
imagery from a 12MP camera.
- 3-Axis Gimbal: The 3-axis gimbal enables the camera to capture
clear photos and videos. It is specially designed to minimize camera
vibration and providing the best experience for you. The controllable range
of the gimbal roll axis is 0°~90° and the operating temperature is
maintained between 14°F~122°F. The gimbal is powered by the aircraft
battery, and a self-test is performed each time the gimbal starts where the
gimbal will rotate through its limits and calibrate itself. The 3-axis
gimbal supports two working modes -
- Stabilized Mode: The gimbal's orientation will always remain
constant with the aircraft's nose, but the gimbal will keep horizontal
even when the aircraft tilts.
- FPV Mode: The gimbal will be synchronized with the aircraft's
movement including rotation and tilt to create a first-person view
during the flight.
- 4K UHD Camera: The gimbal-mounted 4K UHD camera supports various
shooting modes, including single shot, burst shooting, AEB and time-lapse.
Photos can be saved in RAW or JPG formats, and videos can be recorded in MOV
or MP4 formats. A high-definition live view from the camera can be displayed
on the remote controller or Autel Explorer app (for Apple iOS & Android)
with clear and smooth image quality.
