What’s new in the Autel Light and Nano Drones

Autel Nano and Lite drones, and Autel Evo Nano+ and the Evo Light+ drones, just hit the market toward the end of 2021 and will begin shipping to consumers in early 2022. They have many great features and our team at 1UP Drones wants to help buyers make the right purchase decision for their needs and desires. What do these new drones include and why are they already earning such positive reviews?

What Our Autel Nano Lite Demo Model Taught Us….Thank you AutelRobotics and Autel Authorized Dealers

  • Where you placed the connection port to the mobile device is perfect!
  • Solid feel of the controller
  • Camera filters are included in the package and not an afterthought, after market sale
  • Why don’t all manufacturers build the antennae arm into where the mobile device is placed? Great mechanical engineering!
  • The drone will be super duper for travel in the nice soft, lightweight travel pack.

What’s Included in the Autel Nano and the Nano Plus?

We asked our team at 1UP Drones to highlight the best features from each of these new drones, currently available in our online store.

Autel Evo Nano

This hot new drone only weighs about half a pound, easily fitting into a backpack or pocket, but it packs powerful features to facilitate exceptional, professional video and images. The Autel Evo Nano comes standard with a 48MP camera that can easily record ultra-sharp 4k/30 fps HDR video, with a 3-axis mechanical gimbal enabling the user to obtain smooth footage in all manner of conditions.

Still photos will be exceptional with its 1/1.28 inch 50MP camera, at 2.44 um Pixel, featuring a CMOS sensor and RYYB color filter array design. Follow moving objects to capture amazing images with the PDAF+CDAF autofocus system.

The Autel Evo Nano easily pairs with the Autel Sky App and the Autel SkyLink image transmission system. The Evo Nano is also the first drone of its size to offer an advanced obstacle avoidance system, helping you protect your valuable investment from harm. A 30-minute battery life provides lots of time for artistic experimentation.

Autel Evo Nano Plus

The Autel Evo Nano Plus comes with all the features of the Evo Nano above, including:

  • Lightweight ½ pound size
  • HDR video
  • 3-axis mechanical gimbal
  • CMOS sensor
  • RYYB color filter array
  • PDAF+CDAF autofocus system
  • Compatible with the Autel Sky app and SkyLink
  • 30-minute battery life

The difference is found in the 50MP image resolution of the Nano Plus (compared to 48MP in the Nano), which is over quadruple the resolution of the DJI Mini 2 12MP sensor. This provides a massive improvement for still shots. The Nano+ also features a f1.9 lens aperture (over the Nano’s f2.8) for even better low-light photography.

Autel’s Evo Lite and Evo Lite Plus offer some different features that may be suitable for some levels of users. Compare both below.

Autel Evo Lite

The Autel Evo Lite boasts many of the same features as the Nano and Nano Plus, but in addition, introduces a 4-axis mechanical gimbal for even better vertical video. Other common features include:

Super-sensitive 50MP camera with 1/1.28-inch CMOS sensor

  • RYYB color filter array
  • 4k HDR video
  • PDAF+CDAF lens
  • Dynamic tracking

Newer features include ultra-wide angle obstacle avoidance, a 40 minute battery life, and a transmission range through SkyLink of 7.4 miles at a quality of 2.7k/30FPS that enables clearer video at farther distances than ever before.

Autel Evo Lite Plus

The Autel Evo Lite Plus is perhaps the top choice among these four drones. In addition to many of the same features as the Evo Lite, it adds advanced camera capabilities that will surely be enticing to discerning drone enthusiasts. These include a 1-inch CMOS image sensor and Autel’s own intelligent moonlight algorithm for stunning low-light images and video. It also comes with an adjustable aperture from f2.8-f11, 20MP images, and 6k/30P video.

Which Drone is Right for You?

One last thing before we sign off from this month’s blog; if you are an enterprise or professional don’t forget about these Autel Enterprise Class drones.

Back to the tiny guys, for any discerning drone user, plus models always provide that something extra, and usually at a fair minimum of additional price increase. This is especially true between the Evo Lite and the Evo Lite Plus. The larger camera and accompanying capabilities provide the ability to obtain far better images than with any other option reviewed here.

Of course, the best drone for you is the one that meets your needs for the best price. But there is something about getting that extra that you may not need right now; you will always find a need for it sometime in the future. If you already have the greater capabilities, you will find use for them much sooner.
