Just in case anyone missed it, 1.1.6.5 APP to go with 2.3.3. Firmware is now available as BETA from AUTEL site and I guess Play store etc. Mine seems to have loaded automatically, some nice new features, change lots of settings for sensitivity in all directions and speed, stop etc.

At last… but seems only for 2, cant find anything useful for 1.

Cheers

I’ll wait for someone else to test a beta app with their new drone :rofl:

Let us know when it’s out of beta :grimacing:

Latest Autel Explorer app is out of beta and working its way to the app stores now. I can see the Android version but not the Apple version yet.

This is the app version that now supports all the features in the recent firmware update :+1:t2:


New features for EVO II users:

  • Added an option to disable Voice Assistant
  • Added OA notification sounds
  • Added Pre-flight security check prompt
  • Added ISO manual mode
  • Added Smart Orbit
  • Added remote control joystick EXP sensitivity adjustment
  • Added aircraft sensitivity adjustment for attitude, brake and yaw movement

Bugs Fixes and Optimizations:

  • Resolved the GPS location deviation issue in HK and Macau
  • OA status remains unchanged when users switch the speed modes
  • Other minor bug fixes

This should also address some of my initial first impressions:

Update time!

New Autel Explorer app came out today.

Only on iOS so far, Android one always seems to follow a day or two later :man_shrugging:

New stuff:

The customisable A/B buttons will be really handy. I hope they add more options to these buttons in the future.
