EVO Max Series

Reach New Frontiers

Reach New Frontiers

The EVO Max series brings you advanced autonomy. It assesses complex environments to create real-time 3D flight paths for unparalleled obstacle avoidance. Advanced sensors make flight in GPS unavailable areas possible and the incredible thermal and starlight cameras unlock new object identification and tracking scenarios. With a foldable, weather-resistant design, the series is as portable as it is capable.

Autonomous path finding

Autonomous Path Finding

Autel's Autonomy Engine collects surrounding environmental data and plans 3D flight paths through complex environments such as mountains, forests, and buildings. Use cases include rapid 3D scene reconstruction, public safety overwatch, industrial inspection, and land surveying.

Navigation in GPS denied environment

Navigation in GPS Denied Environment

Advanced sensors allow the EVO Max series to navigate within hardened structures, underground, or in environments without GPS.

Accurate object identification and tracking

Accurate Object Identification and Tracking

Based on Autel's AI recognition technology, the EVO Max series can automatically identify and lock onto different types of targets such as heat sources, moving people, or vehicles and achieve high-altitude tracking and data collection for law enforcement.

No Blind Spots

Ultimate Obstacle Avoidance

The EVO Max series is the only commercial drone that combines traditional binocular vision systems with millimeter wave radar technology. This allows the onboard Autel Autonomy Engine to perceive objects down to 0.5 inches, eliminating blind spots and enabling operation in low light or rainy conditions.

Anti Interference

The EVO Max series uses advanced flight control modules and algorithms specially designed to resist interference, which enables the EVO Max series to fly confidently near power lines, critical structures, and in complex areas.

A-Mesh 1.0 - The Drone Industries First Mesh Networking Technology

EVO Max series features the new A-Mesh system, enabling drone-to-drone autonomous communication, connection, and collaboration.

Strong Anti-Interference

Enhanced Anti-Interference

The EVO Max series can communicate seamlessly with other drones in the vicinity, unlike a traditional chain structure. If a single drone fails or exits unexpectedly, the entire system will independently self-organize and continue to relay critical information.

Beyond-Line-of-Sight Applications

Beyond-Line-of-Sight Applications

With A-Mesh, multiple drones in the vicinity can act as relay points to greatly improve BVLOS operation effectiveness.

Full-Fleet Control

Full-Fleet Control

Multiple drones can be controlled autonomously by 1 pilot or by a group of pilots simultaneously with or without LTE coverage.

Enhanced Range

Enhanced Range

Communication nodes can be placed statically on hills or poles to provide full coverage to an area, or a swarm of drones can provide mobile communication points to extend the coverage of the entire group.

Millimeter-wave Radar Sensing System



*Please fly safely and consult your local laws and regulations.

Sensing Range

60GHz radar:

Upper: 0.98-787.4in(0.3~20m)

Downward: 5.9-3149.6in(0.15~80m)

Forward and Backward: 0.98-98.43ft(0.3~50m)

24GHz radar:Downward: 2.62-39.4ft(0.8~20m)


Horizontal(6dB): ±60°/±22° (60Ghz/24Ghz)

Vertical(6dB): ±30°/±20° (60Ghz/24Ghz)

Speed Measurement Range

60GHz Millimeter-wave Radar Sensing System: Supports all-weather obstacle avoidance for glass, water, wires, buildings, and trees in 6 directions: forwards, backwards, left, right, and above and below. Its obstacle avoidance distance varies with the obstacle's ability to reflect electromagnetic waves and its surface size.

24GHz Millimeter-wave Radar Sensing System: Supports downward sensing, and its sensing range varies by the ground material. For example, the sensing range of cement ground is 20 meters, and the sensing range of grass with a thickness of more than 3cm is less than 10 meters.

Visual Sensing System

Obstacle Sensing Range

Forward: 19.7-1220.5in (0.5-31m)

Backward: 19.7-984.3in (0.5-25m)

Sideward: 19.7-1023.6in (0.5-26m)

Upward: 0.66-85.3ft (0.2-26m)

Forward/Backward Sensor: 60°(H), 80°(V)

Upward/Downward Sensor: 180°(sideward), 120°(forward & backward)

Operating Environment

Forward, Backward, Sidewards, Upward: Supports all-day, all-weather obstacle avoidance for obstacles such as glass, water surfaces, small branches, buildings, and power lines. Requires sufficient illumination conditions or strong reflection ability of obstacles to electromagnetic waves. Downwards: The surface has rich textures and adequate lighting conditions (>15 lux, in normal indoor lighting environments).
