In early December last year, Autel filed an FCC application for the Evo 2 drone showing an impressive looking set of specs. A folding drone, similar to something like DJI’s Mavic series, but with the option to get camera modules that shoot up to 8K video or even offer thermal imaging capabilities. The Evo 2 series (yup, it’s not just one drone) has now been officially announced, and the Verge managed to check them out in person a few days ago at CES 2020.
DJI might own most of the global drone market, but they’re not the only player in the game. An FCC application from Autel Robotics describes a new Evo 2 drone is coming and you get a choice of three different camera modules. One that shoots 8K, one that shoots 5.5K or a dual-sensor option that shoots 8K as well as infrared thermal imaging 720p.
