DJI have never announced any drones until just before they are released to the public, so I'm not sure what you mean about their track record.Maybe because of their track record of not delivering on time DJI have decided to wait to see if the Evo2 will eventuate in all its three forms.
I guess you didnt see the part were they have an 8k camera.. first drone company to produce a consumer 8k drone. 40 min flight time as well. If you havent seen the evo 2 check it out. Its bigger than a mavic 2 as well. Either way i give autel alot of respect. When you call them.. their tech support.. you get a real person.. usually one of the owners.. i talked personally with one of the owners who also makes their YouTube videos. Alejandra not sire sure how to spell his name but the 2 times ive called even this past weekend when they are in the middle of launching a new drone. They still had the time to answer the phone directly and handle my question personally which means alot. It wasn't one of 200 people in a call center. Anyway not trying to sway anyone. Just my 2 cent's.. gotta to work !DJI have never announced any drones until just before they are released to the public, so I'm not sure what you mean about their track record.
Autel on the other hand have a record full of drones and accessories that were announced and never released, or released long after they were expected.
I suspect when/if their new Evo2 is released, it's not going to be much different from what DJI's had with the Mavic 2 for some time already.
Whether it's significantly better remains to be seen.
*PLEASE NOTE: These lenses only work with the original Phantom 4 camera. They will not work in the Phantom 4 Pro or Phantom 4 Advanced cameras which use a 1" sensor. Install procedure is the same on Phantom 4 as Phantom 3. All of the below lenses work in the DJI Phantom 4 camera. We recommend...www.peauproductions.com
You guessed wrong.I guess you didnt see the part were they have an 8k camera. first drone company to produce a consumer 8k drone.
Did I miss something? I've never seen any description of remote ID where DJI said the pilot could see surrounding craft. All I've seen is DJI's commitment to send our drone ID and pilot LOCATION information OUT to be received by others, INCLUDING easy public access. Can you imagine the problems caused if the public had access to car license plate data? Chaos! It seems that's the plan for drones. So far I'm not optimistic the FAA is doing this implementation right.Nice thought. But the drone traffic on those days would be pretty dense. Would you fly if know that few dozen of drones are up in the air around?
What about the controller? Does that have a LiPo?Definitely vocc77, take the batteries with you on the carry on and well insulated. If they find you have put them in the cargo you could be in very deep nasty stuff.
The aircraft is fine in the cargo, again no battery inside it. I have always taken four with me on with me and never an issue. I always put the P4P in the case and box it came with, then tell the staff at the airport it is a delicate drone and it goes on a seperate fragile section with big red "fragile" bands. When it arrives at the other end it will always be in a separate open box/tray. Never had one damage and many many flights. Happy flying for you and your drone
The batteries should be at 50% power but then never check I use them on the plane to charge my laptop, phone and stuff, there is a little adapter for usb charging.
You threw in, at the very end, a comment about “it‘s a feeling” but your thread title says “...Phantom 5 is coming.” And the rest of your text leads the reader the same way (except for the line at the end which may not be clear to which part you refer.) Since others fell for it, I must be on to something. i felt this was clickbait.Spectacular solentlife, one day I am going to get a fixed wing, so many advantages over a copter, gracefulness in the sky one among them.
I said it was just a feeling Meta4 and mikestrasser. But there are reasons behind my fanciful dreams. The Evo2 looks amazing and if DJI do nothing a lot of people could take a lot more notice and think about getting one. I would, if I was to sell a few things like the MP2 Zoom. I just can not see DJI sitting back and letting other companies start chipping away at their dominance of the market. We all know about the multiple problems with the drone industry and that is why in part DJI have started to diversify into other areas. No one will ever convince me that DJI have not been working, for a few years now, on the next generations of drone. With interchangeable and or zoom lenses more flight time and the rest. Maybe because of their track record of not delivering on time DJI have decided to wait to see if the Evo2 will eventuate in all its three forms. If you were in DJIs shoes would you not have something in the wings? (pardon the pun)
