Please note there are V1 and V2 versions of the Autel Smart Controller and they CANNOT be used interchangeably. V1 is only compatible with EVO II V1 drones, and V2 is only compatible with EVO II V2 drones. A Smart Controller V2 is NOT compatible with a V1 drone, and vice versa. For more information on Autel Robotics' V1 and V2 versions, please read here: Autel Robotics EVO II Version 2 Announcement

If you purchased your Autel EVO II before June 2021, it would be a Version 1 (V1). If you purchased your EVO II after that date, it does not guarantee you that you have Version 2 (V2). V2 EVO II drone units are marked with "V2" on the top of the aircraft between the vision sensors. V1 EVO II drone units do not have any marking.

Great Improvement over the Autel Standard Controller -- Image Transmission Needs Big Improvement

Having only flown Autel platforms, I find the Smart Controller very nice and definitely not too big or heavy – as seems to be the common complaint from those use to other brands. The Smart Controller routinely provides better turning and gimbal control than can be achieved on the regular Autel Remote controller, and the screen can clearly be seen in the brightest of sunlight. Needing Improvement: The image transmission range of my Version 2 Smart Controller breaks up at distances my standard controller handled with no problems: the Smart Controller’s Connectivity and GPS signal strength icons show solid full- or near full-strength connectivity during these times when the image transmission totally breaks up and or freezes, thereby rendering the Smart Controller’s utility severely hampered. And should the aircraft become temporarily disconnected from the Smart Controller, it takes a minimum of 5-10 seconds longer for connectivity and useable image transmission to be reestablished than it does on the standard Remote controller. So if you’re thinking of getting the Smart Controller to fly longer distances than can be achieved with the standard Remote controller – don’t count on it no matter what the Autel specification sheet is touting. Summary: straight out of the box, the Smart Controller has strong pros and worrisome misses. If soon-coming firmware updates can correct the aforementioned problems, I’d gladly give this unit a 5 instead of 3-stars rating. Minor gripe: the 3-point Chest Harness strap has bare metal connectors which will most likely and quickly scratch off the paint of the Smart Controller at the connecting points. Since I've not really found a need for using the Chest Harness during any full day of flying (from daybreak to dusk), I've not bothered to gen up any additional velcro strap extenders to alleviate this problem. (Given no one is going to be showing off their Smart Controller in equivalent car show setting, but there's no use in needlessly having paint scratched off due to a design oversight.)

My new Autel Smart Controler.

The controller is a beautifully designed device. The Quick Start instruction book is a piece of trash. The instruction for paring the unit to my EVO II Pro does not work and does not follow the software that is pre-installed in the unit. I had to go on YouTube to get the proper instructions. The thing that is missing is a protective case. It should come with a nice protective case. I am looking for one now. I was a very impressed that you inquired as to whether I owned a Version one or Version 2 EVO II.

Another win by Advexure.

Love these guys. They threw in the express shipping to Ontario in with my deal on the Smart Controller Version 2. I did purchase the Autel EVO 2 6K Pro Version 2 a few months back. Great service and fast delivery. Thanks from Brantford, Ontario, Canada.

Despite caveats, well worth the wait!

It took a lot longer than expected for Autel to get these out to resellers. Whatever is behind Autel's challenges getting products to market, it seems to be a pattern. Anecdotally, this has been their MO all the way back to the X-Star release in 2016 This put resellers like Advexure on the spot, trying to keep customers happy with little help from Autel. To their credit, Advexure upgraded shipping, and provided Autel Filter Set for Evo 2 Pro. I finally have the unit, and it meets or exceeds expectations. This controller is overkill for me as a hobbyist, though I am developing work plans for it and my V2 E2P. Engineering/build quality are outstanding. Ergonomics are good. FW/SW can use further development and a few minor bugs await fixes. One continuing disappointment is that Android versions of Autel Explorer features lag substantially behind IOS builds, despite many unfulfilled promises of porting them to Android. Autel has work to do, and this Android based unit should be the inspiration for that development. It would certainly benefit from it as would Autel and Advexure customers.
