Autel Robotics Prepares to Announce Competitors for DJI Mini 2 and AIR 2S

Autel Robotics prepares to announce competitors for DJI Mini 2 and AIR 2S

Autel Robotics will soon introduce two new drones

Rumors about the immi­nent appear­ance of two new mod­els of drones from Autel Robot­ics have been cir­cu­lat­ing on the net­work for a long time. How­ev­er, today these rumors were direct­ly con­firmed by the first images, where two new drones were acci­den­tal­ly lit up, the appear­ance and dimen­sions of which pre­de­ter­mine the appear­ance of one light­weight mod­el — let’s call it Autel EVO Mini, and one medi­um-sized mod­el — let’s call it Autel EVO AIR, from which it fol­lows that both prod­ucts will com­pete with two of our hob­by’s best-sell­ing drones from DJI Inno­va­tions — MINI 2 and AIR 2S.

Autel EVO Mini

At the moment, there is no infor­ma­tion about the new prod­ucts, but the leaked images still allow us to extract some details:

  • Weight up to 250 grams
  • Appear­ance of EVO II (only in a small­er size)
  • Portable fold­ing form fac­tor
  • Four col­ors avail­able: Orange/Light Grey/Dark Grey/Red
  • 3‑Way Obsta­cle Avoid­ance Sys­tem (Front/Rear/Lower)
  • The remote con­trol remote­ly resem­bles the form fac­tor of the remote con­trol from the Par­rot Anafi drone
  • On/off but­ton on the back of the drone

In the leaked pho­to below, we can see part of the large fuse­lage of the Autel Robot­ics Drag­on­fish com­mer­cial drone, next to which are the three afore­men­tioned light­weight mini drones, and behind them at the very end are three larg­er quad­copters made in three col­ors (Gray / Orange / White), dimen­sions which, by eye, are sim­i­lar to the dimen­sions of the best uni­ver­sal hob­by drone — DJI AIR 2S. Even though the pho­to qual­i­ty is very low, we can still see the fol­low­ing details:

  • EVO II exte­ri­or (small­er size only)
  • Portable fold­ing form fac­tor
  • Three col­ors avail­able: Grey/Orange/White
  • 3‑way obsta­cle detec­tion and avoid­ance sys­tem (Front/Rear/Lower; It is also pos­si­ble that the visu­al­iza­tion sys­tem will be 5‑sided for this mod­el)
  • Large on/off but­ton on the back of the drone
  • Between the two rear sen­sors is a port (most like­ly USB‑C) for updat­ing soft­ware and charg­ing the bat­tery

Announcement date

As not­ed above, with the excep­tion of the above pho­tos, today there is no infor­ma­tion about upcom­ing updates. How­ev­er, if we pro­ceed from the fact that these images depict work­ing mod­els and, as we can see, not in a sin­gle copy, then most like­ly the first announce­ment of one of these drones may take place as ear­ly as Octo­ber 2021.
