In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew test flies the EVO drone from Autel Robotics. After setting up the aircraft by verifying the altitude limit, geofencing and return-to-home altitude, the crew demonstrates how to arm and launch the aircraft. The flight testing includes hovering for GPS position hold, as well as standard and ludicrous mode – the equivalent of sport mode on other drones – for normal and aggressive flying. Next up, the crew tests the forward and rear collision avoidance systems, which work well. The crew provides a sample of aerial video from the EVO, which carries a 4K video camera capable of capturing 12 megapixel stills. They also demonstrate how to change camera settings using the controller and the app, available for Android and iOS devices. The review concludes with a gimbal torture test and a flight endurance test, demonstrating the drone can deliver nearly 20 minutes of flight in a real-world environment.
