Autel EVO Final Thoughts

"Unbelievable!"

A friend has a DJI Phantom drone, and flew My Autel EVO today. It's also important to take your time with the installation. Even the gravity control works well enough to fly it. There's a single button auto take-off/landing feature. My eyes are not as good as they used to be.
