Hi. I've been enjoying my EVO for the past 3 or so years, and just recently came back here to check out the new series....and wow, it looks like Autel is no longer the little 'mom and pop' from Washington USA. Has something changed? I'd appreciate it in a nutshell. Thanks!!!

What is changed?
Until they fix Autel Explorer, still is like a 3 legs dog....Is like you have a supersonic plane but the pilot is knowing only "parachute mode"...

I bought an Evo 2 Pro V2 for photogrammetry and its flying missions weekly. The PIX4D engineer says the images are stunning compared to the DJI P4P he used previously. Especially the ones mapped where the DJI wouldn't take off due to geo-fencing. LOL

Been flying it for a month and haven't wanted to do anything the APP would not do. YMMV

"Autel" was never "Autel".
Autel was never a "mom and pop" anything.

"Autel" has always been a USA based subidiary of Autel China, maker of automotive diagnostic tools.

Autel USA is: www.auteldrones.com
Autel Robotics China (drone division and parent to Autel USA) is: www.autelrobotics.com
Autel China (parent to Autel Robotics China drone division) is www.autel.com

The physical presense of Autel USA is in Bellingham Washington, and they are owned and work for Autel Robotics China.

They started small as an offshoot of the existing company and are investing more and more in their products in an effort to compete with DJI and other Drone manufactures in the US market.

As for the explorer app. Yea, it's not great, but it's not the worst either, and the new drones Nano, and lite, and perhaps Evo III will have a new app.

It remains to be seen if they've invested more in software as well as hardware. I hope so.
