Autel EVO Nano Plus vs DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone

Autel EVO Nano Plus vs DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone

Released in 2021, the Autel EVO Nano Plus drone is already well known to many drone enthusiasts. In terms of aircraft performance and camera specifications, we can find Nano Plus drones on major news platforms and Youtube websites, and countless people have proved that Autel EVO Nano Plus drones are lightweight. The best drone even we know, the Autel EVO Nano Plus drone kills the DJI Mini2 drone.

In May of this year, DJI officially released the drone Mini 3 Pro. DJI seems to intend to use the Mini 3 Pro drone to compete with the EVO Nano Plus drone, let's see the Mini 3 Pro drone launch What features have been added, and how it has changed from the previous Mini 2 drone.

Autel Robotics EVO Nano+ Drone VS DJI Mini3 Pro

Under the foldable drone at 249g, the Autel Nano Plus has always been in the lead. In the US, drones under 250g do not need to be registered. More and more drone manufacturers are now packing more functionality into smaller and smaller drones.

Drone Camera: 4K@60fps vs 4K@30fps

Equipped with the new DJI Mini 3 Pro 4K@60fps Camera and 48mp (1 / 1.3 ") sensor, while autel nano plus is equipped with 4K@30fps Camera and 12MP (1 / 2.8 ") camera. Generally, larger sensors mean better low light capability, so you can expect nano + to have better video performance in night flight than Mini 3.

At the same time, I would say that autel sometimes provides new features when updating firmware. A recent firmware update solved some problems. "Autel optimizes wind resistance and flight control pan tilt stability. This update also addresses and fixes other nano + problems, including DNG file color errors, photo number display errors in the application, auto exposure locking errors in the camera, hyperlapse errors, and other minor camera problems."

Battery Life: The Mini 3 Pro Seems To Have A Huge Advantage

Mini Pro 3 provides a standard smart flight battery that can provide up to 34 minutes of flight time, but you need to be cautious about this number. We ran several times and saw it for about 30 minutes at most. After about 25 minutes, the back home (RTH) warning began.

In contrast, the autel nano is powered by a 2S / 2250mah battery pack with a battery life of about 28 minutes. Drones are so lightweight that these numbers, of course, depend largely on wind and other factors.

DJI's Mini 3 Pro is a new killer of lightweight Drones. It is shocking to introduce new functions to the past Mini Drones. However, autel Evo nano plus is still a competitor of Mini 3 Pro. It has similar 48 megapixel 1 / 1.27 inch camera sensor, three-way obstacle avoidance, object tracking, etc. In particular, ryyb's image color design is added, which is very friendly to night shooting. Autel Evo nano plus has powerful image function, even compared with air 2S.

In the 249g Drones, the most obvious features of Mini 3 Pro and Mini 2 are the addition of obstacle avoidance function and camera lens upgrade. Another important feature of Mini 3 is visual object tracking enhanced by three powerful storytelling tools: activetrack 4.0, spotlight 2.0 and point of interest 3.0.

In Conclusion

If you are looking for a powerful 250g Drones, autel nano plus and the new Mini 3 Pro will be your best choice at present. Compared with the old Mini 2, these two models have better camera, longer mileage and longer battery life.

On the other hand, if you have a tight budget and are looking for a good 4K Drones for beginners, Mini 2 is still a good choice.
