Autel Evo Smart Controller (leak)

2000nits :+1:t2:

Puts it on par with the CrystalSky Ultra :clap:t2:


This appears to be a common approach within the commercial/enterprise market. HereLink and Skydroid, and probably a few others, are manufacturing similar systems.

I emailed Autel, asking when this will be released.

I thought they’ll either deny it exists completely, or they’ll ignore my email.

They replied with:

Wow! I’m now in line for one - as long as it can support my EVO 1. I so nearly bought a Yuneec Typhoon H for its spectacular controller (and retracting undercarriage) but reluctantly forsook it for the superior camera on the EVO.

Lol :rofl:

No, I didn’t.

But I’ve just replied to Evan and asked the question :smiley:

It’s great, isn’t it?

@stevesb brought his to a north west meet last year and I fell in love instantly.

With the controller.

Not Steve.

(soz mate)


@PingSpike - maybe you could ask him to look at a retracting undercarriage too? Oh, and a UK branch.

Incidentally, I was corresponding with Evan last week about accessing the flight log of my crashed zone and he told me I couldn’t unless I had registered an account with them, which I hadn’t. But when I registered my new drone yesterday, I found I could also access the flight logs of my old drone so maybe he was just brushing me off and limiting his liabilities.

Great bit of kit the controller just needs better connectivity.
