Autel EVO Drone Overview

Aircraft Overview

As you know the EVO Drone is the latest evolution in drone technology. let's take a look at Evo's compact design!

The Evo aircraft is a foldable quadcopter with a stabilized three-axis camera gimbal and an integrated 4k Ultra HD camera. To fully deploy Evo, we will need to unfold the top arms first and then the bottom arms, when folding up the Evo, start with the bottom arms and then the top arms.

At the front of the aircraft, we have two computer vision cameras that are part of the visual navigation system, used for obstacle avoidance and other autonomous features.

Below is the 4k ultra HD camera built on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal, removing the gimbal guard by squeezing the sides and pulling down. The three-axis gimbal is made up of three motors on the pan-tilt and roll axis, on the front of the camera, there is a UV filter to protect the camera lens, this UV filter can be removed and replaced with compatible neutral density filters also known as ND filters we will talk about ND filters and want to use the right filter in another video

On the right side of the EVO. under the air vent is the microSD card slot even includes a 32-gigabyte u3 micro SD card and can support up to a 128-gigabyte class 10 micro sd card.

At the rear of the aircraft, we will find the power button, holding this down for three seconds will power up the aircraft and then we have the near-IR sensor used for obstacle avoidance.

Under the cover, we have a micro USB port used for importing photos and video to your computer and then the pairing button used to pair a remote controller to an aircraft. (your remote controller will already be paired when the aircraft arrives from the factory.)

The bottom plate on the aircraft acts as a heat sink, we will also find the rest of the visual navigation system consisting of two ultrasonic sensors and two optical flow cameras.

At the end of each arm, we have an LED light indicator and a motor, the Evo is 2 clockwise motors and 2 counterclockwise motors each with a quick-release propeller mount to install or remove propellers easily to install.

The EVO propeller matches the propeller to the corresponding motor by color, align the propeller then press down and twist to lock the propeller in place.

And finally, on the top of the aircraft is a battery release button, when removing the battery from Evo, pick it up and press down on the button then slide the battery towards the rear of the aircraft. To install the battery, align it and slide towards the front of the aircraft, you will hear an audible click.

To replace the gimbal guard, pull the aircraft upside-down squeeze the sides and align the gimbal with the camera until it is in place.
