A mega Autel sale just kicked off today, and it means sales of up to 20% off on the company’s drones.
The Autel sale for summer 2022 started on Friday, August 19 and runs through Monday, Sept. 5, 2022, which is Labor Day. Among the items for sale include Autel’s popular EVO Nano+ and EVO Lite+ packages and bundles. Sale prices are valid for purchases made either through the Autel Robotics Amazon store or via the Autel Robotics official online store.
The Autel sale highlights include:
15% off the Autel Evo Lite+ package
The Autel Evo Lite+ package typically goes for $1,549. But with this sale, it starts at just $1,319.
I consider the Autel Evo Lite+ to be the best non-DJI camera drone you can buy. Its top features include:
- 1-inch CMOS sensor
- 6K/30fps video
- 40 minutes of flight in a single charge
- Adjustable aperture, f/2.8-f/11
- Defog mode
- Transmission range of 7.4 miles
- Ultra wide angle obstacle avoidance cameras, allowing for a front field of view of 150 degrees
That impeccable camera allows you to alter exposure and depth of field, and an YYB color filter array design is able to keep your film bright but not washed out because it supposedly absorbs 40% more light than traditional RGGB arrays.
It holds up in level seven winds, and it’s excellent as a follow-me drone thanks to its built-in Dynamic Track 2.1 software.
15% off the Autel Evo Nano+ package
The Autel Evo Nano+ package typically goes for $949. But with this sale, it starts at just $809.
This drone is typically seen as the closest competitor to DJI’s Mavic Mini lineup of drones. Both drone families famously weigh in at under 249 grams, making them exempt from FAA registration requirements.
Its top features include:
- 1/1.28-inch (0.8-inch) CMOS sensor capable of 50 MP photos
- An RYYB color filter array design with a large aperture of f/1.9
- PDAF + CDAF autofocus system
Autel drones are seen as worthy competitors to DJI drones, particularly for people looking for drones made in the U.S. (Autel has North American offices in the state of Washington). Autel drones have won numerous accolades, including top prizes in the 2022 iF Design Awards.
If you want to mull over the deal for a bit, at least mark your calendars. The Autel sale only runs through Sept. 5. The company said prices will be valid on purchases made through the Autel Robotics Amazon store or via the Autel Robotics official online store.
