Autel Robotics is readying a new photo drone that takes dead aim at DJI’s Mavic Pro.

The compact, foldable EVO can record 4K/60p video and sports obstacle avoidance sensors. The camera rests on a 3-axis gimbal.

The EVO can fly for 30 minutes on a fully charged battery at speeds up to 20 meters per second.

The included remote control features a 3.3-inch screen capable of displaying a live feed of 720p video from the EVO.

Autel Robotics, which had something of a bumpy 2017, says it will release a ship date soon. The EVO is expected to retail for $999.
