Wow almost identical to the Mavic. Any idea of the price ? Release date ?

Always liked their orange livery

Surely sounds all very nice; how will everything pan out in practice?

Looks like the lens is 84 or 94 degrees FOV at f/2.8. No idea about the sensor size. 4k video for sure.

Nice, a Mavic competitor from a company with an actual track record of having good products with good support...

In their Facebook page they also show that the remote has a small 3.3" OLED, so you can use it even without a smart device

Not to mention a giveaway at CES, hopefully we will soon see info from third parties, not just a demo reel (which is good, but that's what you would expect )

Also, from that page:

Autel Robotics 0:00 We’ll be doing an online giveaway for an EVO during the week - keep an eye on our page for details on how to enter when the time comes!

Very nice! I'm looking for a new camera drone, and either this thing or the GDU 02 (if it pans out) are my current favorites. Was liking the Spark, but all the commotion with no-fly-zones and data being sent to China has reduced my interest in that a bit...

This might indeed be what the Vitus just couldn't deliver.

Much more info on the EVO in this video:

CES 2018 • AUTEL Robotics EVO camera drone (9 min 6 sec)

Best news: it'll be 'below $1,000'

4k at 60fps

Love the little screen in the controller, also usable for FPV view! Very handy!

Would be great if this became available in the EU

Another video from CES:

Very impressive! I'm not familiar with Autel, but some of you say they are a very reputable company so, extra cool!

That controller looks impressive too!

"below $1000" means it will be $999. it does look nice, though.

If it can do

-4k @ 60fps with a 3-axis gimbal
-fly up to 7 kilometers
-for 'up to 30 minutes'
-"intelligent proximity" and avoidance
-and is excellent general quality

Yeah, ~$1000 is reasonable
