I have been asked if I had a preference by somebody looking to buy on Black Friday and I must admit to a bias, I have a review Autel Evo Nano+ premium bundle and have not made a full review because I am constantly really using it.

At the moment they are enjoying a 35% Black Friday deal price of $709

I fly mine for no more than 20 minutes on a battery, you can push it a little longer but it is not worth hammering the batteries IMHO. The premium kit gives you a solid 1 hour of flight time with spare power just in case.

The charging bar is a little flimsy but adequate.

Autels major advantage over DJI is that their drones do not have no-fly zones that you have to deactivate. They leave it upto the end user to behave. Very handy for some commercial operations.

If you are new to the world of drones it is a great choice at under 250g weight which will keep you clear of some regulations in several countries but always check your local regulations.

The 3D model below was made with my Nano+
