No, the Autel Nano and Lite models will run on a new app called "Autel Sky", not Autel Explorer.
Then we are fxckd up...It was the only hope that Autel will fix the Autel Explorer App with the so many bugs...

lease. Don’t need the Lite model because I already have the Evo Pro 2, but need the Nano+ to replace my DJI Mini 2.

No thanks, Autel. I’m not buying any more of your products. How long until these new drones become end of life products and you dump support for your customers like you did for us EVO owners. You can take your new drones and go...

The EVO Lite+ will have less avoidance sensors but will be pretty comparable in most ways to the EVO 2 Pro. Its going to make the price of the EVO 2 Pro hard to swallow and virtually guarantee that the EVO 3 which is rumored to have big upgrades like a 4/3 camera and Skydio style avoidance, arrives sooner... not later.
I like Autel a lot but they don't deliver on what they are manufacturing. From news of a new product to delivery in hand is 4 to 6 months. They make it sound like it will be here in the next week or so. I just got confirmation on the Autel EVO 2 6K Pro Version 2 Smart Controller for Tuesday October 12, 2021. Even this date will be sketchy. I waited all summer for the Autel EVO 2 Version 2 6K Rugged Bundle. Bring back Randall Warnas...............LOL.

Autel most certainly needs to improve on their production and delivery estimates. 4 to 6 months sounds a bit inflated from what actual has been. Not saying these actuals are that much better, but 4-6 months is exaggerated and it's important this information is factual.

EVO II Smart Controller V1: Released 4/20/21, began shipping 6/24/21 (~2 months)
EVO II Smart Controller V2: Released 6/4/21, began shipping 9/22/21 in ENT Kits (~3.5 months) and 10/8/21 as Standalone (~4 months)
EVO II V2 Units: Released 6/4/21, began shipping 7/30/21 (~2 months)

What probably sticks in a lot of folks' minds is the timeline between the Evo II V1's soft launch in 2019, to its availability in the spring of 2020. That was a pretty long stretch.

The Enterprise series was similar. It was presented at a trade show quite a while before becoming available.

Also worth mentioning is the Kestrel (their pre Dragonfish VTOL), which turned out to be vaporware. It's only now, 5 years later, that the similar Dragonfish is available.

Wanted to also add that the Smart Controller was rumored at least as far back as the summer of 2020. That, along with the "future controller" slot in the GPC case and the existing Kestrel/Dragonfish Smart Controller had a lot of people waiting patiently from very early on.

Hi, don't we need to see the Autel Sky app available before any physical Autel Nano and Lite ship?

Regards,
Richard

Most likely, yes. Nano and Lite are estimated to begin shipping in late October or early November. Still a little ways out...
