Remote Controller Overview


Hi everyone Alejandro here with Autel
Robotics in this video we will cover the basics of the remote controller for your
Evo drone Welcome to the Flight Deck! Let’s get
started by unfolding the arms of the controller this articulating design
helps for a convenient storage, now flip up the mobile device holder and unfold
the antenna. Take care when unfolding the antenna do not force or apply pressure
when rotating. At first glance we have the command sticks these will control
the orientation of the aircraft. By default, your remote controller will be
in mode 2. This is a standard and most familiar control for users. Different
remote controller modes can be selected when using the Autel Explorer App. The
left command stick will control the ascent, descent, and the rotation of the
aircraft. The right command stick will move the aircraft forward, backward, left,
and right relative to the nose of the aircraft. From left to right: we have the
Auto Takeoff and Landing button. When the motors are idling this button will
command the aircraft to take off autonomously. When Evo is hovering this
button will command the aircraft to land autonomously at its current location.
Next, we have the power button. Hold this button down for 3 seconds to turn the
remote controller on or off. The remote controller is now powered on and waiting
to connect to Evo. The pause button will command the aircraft to pause any
autonomous flight operations. You can press this button again to resume your
autonomous flight. The last button is the Go Home button. Pressing this button will
command the aircraft to return to its home location. At the top of the
controller we can find the mobile device holder, two antennae are used to send and
receive flight controls and video transmission. On the left is our gimbal
pitch dial. Here, we can make adjustments to the camera angle. Under that, we have
the record video button. On the back side of the remote controller are two
programmable buttons which can be assigned a variety of options within the
Autel Explorer app. On the right, is the shutter button to
capture still images. Above that, is the screen navigation down and a Display
button to navigate the menu options. The remote controller was built specifically
for use with Evo and supports a 3.3 inch OLED screen that
provides critical flight details and allows a live video downlink, without the
need of the Autel Explorer app. To access all the advanced settings and autonomous
flight modes Evo has to offer, you will need a mobile device connected and
running the Autel Explorer app. This free app can be downloaded from the iOS App
Store or Google Play Store. We will cover the Autel Explorer app in another video.
For now let’s take a look at the information available on the remote
controller screen. The OLED screen offers two main views: the Flight
Information panel and the live video feed the flight information panel will
provide telemetry such as altitude, distance, speed, and the gimbal tilt
angle. A flight status bar in the middle of the screen lets you know if you’re
ready to go and what flight mode you’re in. Then we have the GPS signal strength,
a microSD card indicator, a camera mode icon, a vision icon. Last, we have the
remote controller signal strength. Under that we have the aircraft battery life
indicator, an estimated time of flight remaining, and then the battery life of
the remote controller. To access the live video feed press the Display button on the
top right of the remote controller to switch from the flight information panel
to the live video feed. At the top, we have our basic flight information: the
estimated flight time remaining, remote controller battery percentage telemetry
such as altitude, distance from the home point, speed and the gimbal pitch angle.
At the bottom, we have the basic camera settings some of the options are grayed
out and will be activated depending on your settings. By pressing in on the
navigation wheel we can change between auto or manual camera settings. In
manual we have access to quickly change the ISO and shutter speed. In auto, we can
change the exposure value or EV. Selecting the gear icon, will allow you
to enter the settings menu. Here, we can adjust more camera options, flight
settings, remote controller settings, vision system options, and general
settings. Press the Display button to back out of any menu. If you are connected to
a mobile device, the live video feed to the OLED screen will be disabled and
the live video will be displayed on your mobile device. That’s the basics of the remote controller. Thanks for watching and we’ll
see you next time on the Flight Deck!

  1. I have 2 x star premium drones there both awesome drones Thanks for the Evo it’s really nice to have a very high quality drone at a very competitive price now it’s time to purchase thanks for the info 👍🇺🇸

  2. Very impressive. So nice to know that if the phone app crashes you can just click a button and see video on the controller.

  3. Can I customize the controller layout so it fits regular FPS gamers? 😀 haha, so much more natural – left stick controls body, and right aims. 🙂

  4. What about if you connect the battery, and the indicator shows only one light and that flashing ?
