Here's how to take great hyper-lapse photography with your Evo II Pro drone. In order to find the perfect drone build time-lapse, you must pay attention to some drone-related features and components. Some of these components include motors, GPS modules or position trackers, batteries, propellers, flight controllers, speed controllers, shutter timers, obstacle avoidance sensors and remote controls, navigator tabs or mobile apps (for general control) . All of these features work together to increase the efficiency of the drone when in use.

location reconnaissance
One of the most important elements in creating dynamic hyperlapse is finding subjects that have a lot of motion, say a harbor seashore, because of good wave motion and their interaction with nearby rocks. Cars, boats, and objects moving in the water can all be subjects.

The Autel EVO II Pro Ultra HD camera features a 1-inch sensor with 6k 20MP resolution. Capture stunning detail previously impossible on an aerial platform of this size. Adjustable aperture from f/2.8 - f/11, HDR and intuitive camera controls make it the perfect choice for any aerial cinematographer or survey pilot.

Other key points to consider when setting up your Evo II Pro drone hyperlapse:

The calmer the wind speed at your location, the better.
The speed of your subject is the speed of your drone. Make sure your movement speed allows you to keep your subject in the frame you want
The capabilities of your drone.

There are dedicated buttons on the Evo II Pro remote to quickly take a photo or start/stop recording a video.
