    This is an awesome drone but right now a little out of my price range. I've always wanted the Mavic Air 2 in addition the Nazgul 5 fpv you recently did a review on is another strong contender. What would you say is a better drone experience of the two ? I just need help deciding. Thanks for your time

    I owned the Autel Evo II Pro for two weeks before it crashed on its own catastrophically. I am a seasoned pilot with at least 50 hours flying time with DJI drones and about 4-5 with this particular drone. From the beginning the drone didn’t live up to a single standard that the company claims. The 45mph speed is (in my experience under multiple calm conditions) unachievable. The 9km distance they tout, is absolutely false…the best I ever did under optimum conditions in an open field without obstacles was about 4,500-5,000 feet (1.5km). The drone is relatively unstable in flying, I read one comment from a very prominent drone pilot that states it flies like a brick…it does. As much as I don’t like DJI’s practices and money-grubbing, their drones are the best. After my drone disconnected at less than 2,000 feet in a loosely dense urban area with no buildings exceeding 15 floors or so, it proceeded to return to home and fly directly into a building. I have video from the incident as well as a screen shot before it crashed showing the ambient light was quite sufficient. The ambient light in (this downtown) was sufficient enough to see a building several blocks away in the background and recognize exactly which one it was. DO NOT buy their drones, do some research, and despite their claims none of them are remotely true. The battery that came with the drone along with the additional one I purchased are rated at 40 minutes flight time. I understand this is under optimal conditions, but never did either come close to that figure. Each time they were fully charged with less than five charge cycles on them they showed on the app at approximately 33-34 minutes flight time and underperformed each time with less than 2-4mph winds and flying under 22mph. If you want my full review along with conversations with the company, their dodging, and their vague explanations please DM me.

    OK, here we go. I was convinced that I wanted the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The latest improvements on it were the quieter prop blades, better battery control through the ECS, and Yes it is expensive – but it is about the same as the EVO II reviewed here I believe. NOW for the issues.

    1) You talked and showed the control it demonstrated while going up to avoid a bump or hill and follow down to regain picture control of the object or person being followed – this was outstanding in fact. It is exactly what I want based on the way I plan on using the follow me feature. But you said this model has this feature and some others don't! Is this really the case? Does the DJI Mavic Platinum not have it? It is advertised to have about as many side and top and bottom and back sensors as the EVO II has.
    2) This whole issue about the 8K or others is confusing me completely. Your explanation about why to set it to 8K mode or such is for post processing choices like zooming in on something or other special concerns. If I use those settings all the time so I have the option in Post Video Processing to avail myself of them then I would fill up my recording chip quickly, YES?
    3) If my Post Video Processor SW or my TV isn't already designed to handle the Very high resolution like 8k or such – what is the repercussion? Is it like a deal breaker or do I have to upgrade my equipment or is there something in the electronics that just handles it?
    4) I'm a little lost again, I have to admit. I thought that the most important features of object avoidance and follow me were sophisticated enough to make my satisfy my needs while having it chase me on an ATV or Side-by-Side vehicle. I thought I had waited long enough. What do you think?

    Somebody tell me if this makes sense. I would purchase this drone over a 4k drone in hopes of future proofing my videos. I currently have a 4k old TV while most people have only 1080p. As tech cheapens we all upgrade. Ii figure if I record in 8k it will still look "good" 20 years from now for my grandkids to see. Although I don't know anything about computers I'm hop

    Great video my drone brother. As usual always a great review. Thanks sooo much for sharing this great video with us brother. I am seriously thinking on buying this machine myself. I hate the price, but i think is worth every penny. God bless and stay safe. Thanks for all you do and please keep flying.

    after watching your video.and as a fan of autel products. Imy self ive always had autel diagnostic automotive tools and they are very good and well made , so am not surprised they are making awesome drones, gonna have to buy one now..
    thank you for this great review 👏

    Is this the Autel Evo ii with the 8K Camera which although it says it records 8K videos its only at 25 fps. Or this the Professional 6K Camera which is the only one to have the 1-inch 20 MP sensor capable of shooting 5.5K video at 60 fps and 4K video at 120 fps? Quite a difference in price to.
