Autel Evo II photogrammetry experience?
« on: July 12, 2020, 01:23:49 AM »
Does anyone have any experience using the Autel Evo II for structure-from-motion? On paper, the drone looks very nice, but I'd love to hear that at least one person has had a good experience producing orthomosaics and/or DEMs using imagery captured from the Autel Evo II (base, pro, or dual, but most interested in pro).

Along with that, does it integrate with Metashape well? Any issues reading EXIF data? Does it output barometric altimetry in EXIF, like DJI drones (I use this to correct my camera elevations in Metashape, which occasionally improves alignment and georeferencing)? Any issues using pictures from this drone in Metashape?

Thanks for any opinions you have on this drone!

Dan, No experience with the E2 but there is a little user discussion on Drone Deploy if you're interested.

That's very helpful, thank you! Glad to hear it's looking like a well-functioning drone. Might need to buy one soon!

The link above is to the Autel Evo Pro, here are my observations for the Autel Evo II dual.
I have the Autel Evo II dual (with a FLIR camera),  it seems the camera and payload have a lot of potential. One key improvement they know they need to implement  is adding the focal length and pixel size in the Exif header so Metashape can read the image attributes.

I've been flying the EVO II 6k and the photogrammetry data is good.  Pretty much the same results as Mavic 2 Pro.
