Autel EVO 2 PRO Mapping LOVE IT

@Roma_Red Your off topic post was moved here: Help with the basics

Jmason702, can you share some of your settings for the E2P. What altitude, overlaps, camera settings… I fly my sites with a P4RTK at 150’ and have never seen the detail that I saw in your last post! I have only flown my E2P a couple of times on the site at same altitude and I was very happy with the overall results but not that great detail like you have.

just one bad spot under the tree were the drone could not see

I fly in auto camera, around 110 ft AGL, 80 percent front 70 percent side, camera angle 70 degrees, and the I do orbits from 130’ then at 90’ then at as low as I can go.

Awesome! I love the flat profile of this drone. Very limiting on harsh highlights and shadows similar to the Yuneec H520. This definitely could have used some handheld drone shots under that tree.

@jmason702 Looks nice. What altitude was the mission flown?

@jmason702 Would like to know your altitude on this one too :slight_smile:

110’ AGL Orbits down to 60 ft AGL

@jmason702 Ahhh! I was wondering how you acquired such good resolution!! Looks good! What angles do you use you use as you get lower?

about a 45 degree angle on camera, as long as the sky is not present

@jmason702 No sky is definitely important. I’ll have to try something like that with the P4Pv2 and see if the quality is as good.

Jmason702, is that .07 RMSE accuracy of the GCP’s or Checkpoints?

What map are you refering to? and it must be the GCPs, never had that accuracy on check points

If you want detail you have to fly way below 150’. Have a look at the model below created with DroneDeploy

I’m having trouble finding how to get my Autel to pair with Drone Deploy. How are you doing the mapping in Drone Deploy with your Autel please? Thank you!

DroneDeploy does not support autonomous flight with the Autel drones. Mapping is done in Autel’s flight software and then the images are manually uploaded to DroneDeploy where they then are like any other flight from any other drone. We can all hope they will eventually be supported. :wink:

Recently added an E2P, its a small beast and with its 1" sensor rivals the P4P. Have used the Autel Explorer app Mission planner which is nice, however no import/export of planned missions (e.g. ability to move from one android to another etc), nor, ability to clone/copy a mission exists compared to DD and others. Likewise would like to use existing DD based recurring missions and run them on the E2P vs. having to recreate them. Thus add another voice to those requesting DD support the E2P.

There are definitely some limitations to Autel’s flight software as far as mapping goes, but I am sure as more pilots start to use it that they will be improving their project as all the other softwares have. Do you know if it has KML import? If so you could do all of your planning in Google Earth or something like Litchi and export them as KML’s. Then you have the same flight plan to import into different softwares.

If drone deployed did bring the E2P on board it would definitely sway me to buy one immediately. Until then we are happy with our P4P’s and Yuneec H520’s. The H520E just came out as well so there are definitely some decisions to be made.

No KML import yet as far as know or can find out as that is how I was thinking of importing some Litchi missions. Concur that once DD adds Autel, particular E2P they will see up tick in people using it. the E2P characteristics are similar to P4P, yet smaller and easier to setup. Flew a series of map missions yesterday in a light 14mph wind and saw about a 30% improvement in flight time vs P4P. Hopefully a combination of DD adding support, and Autel improving their mission planner (e.g. import/export of missions) sooner vs later happens.
