In one of the previous posts I wrote about notable sub-250 gram drones. DJI has been a clear cut leader in the sub-250 gram drone space. However, this is about to change as Autel Robotic has announced sub-250 gram drones from the Nano series as well as more powerful Lite series.
Let’s look quickly and spec of both Autel EVO NANO and Aute EVO Lite drones and see how they compare to the current leader - DJI Mini 2.
The drone will be offered in different colors: Autel Orange, Arctic White, Deep Space Gray and Blazing Red.
It is expected that the drone will be priced at about $650.
As we can see, at least on paper, Autel NANO is much more powerful than DJI Mini 2, albeit at a slightly higher price. However, the obstacle avoidance is a deal-breaker for many pilots. So, Autel NANO is a clear winner here.
EVO Lite is a bigger brother at 820 grams. However, the drone brings a lot on the table. It comes in two variants Lite and Lite+. Let’s look at the spec and features.
The EVO Lite version comes with a 50 megapixel camera but with a smaller 1/1.27" sensor.
Evo Lite+ is will be priced at $1,249.
With the holiday season almost at the door, the companies will be trying to hunt for customer dollars. One thing is for sure - the competition is heating up.
