The Evolve features the worldʼs first dual screen drone controller which operates on an Android 6.0 system and is supported by a 6000 mAh Li-Po 3S battery with a maximum operating voltage of 11.1V between the temperatures of 0°C – 40°C. Embodied in an all-in-one package of hardware and software, Evolveʼs drone controller is a Smart Pilot System (SPS) which combines all functions for usersʼ flying and filming needs within a single interface. Strong, powerful and elegant, the ground station is estined to become a reference, raising the benchmark, within the drone industry. The clamshell design ensures that the joysticks and screens are constantly protected. The grip design is ergonomic and extremely comfortable and the handle makes it practical to be carried around or displayed on a table to be used as a work station. It is also mountable on a tripod for a different type of control experience.
The ground station features a 64-bit quad-core CPU and dedicated GPU, 4GB of Ram making it one of the most powerful controllers on the market and a veritable power house, capable of handling both picture and video editing as well as social media management. Evolveʼs ground station is also one of the only controllers operating with a hidden antenna for more practicality and portability
A new aerial photography and filming experience begins with the Evolve at your fingertips. Drawing inspiration from handheld game consoles, the foldable remote controller features two separate high brightness screens in the palm of your hands, a 7″ FPV viewfinder with a luminance of 1000cd/m2 and a 5″ multi-touch control panel with a luminance of 600 cd/m2, both processed for an anti-reflective coating. The dual-screenʼs T-shaped orientation is complimented with an 5MP embedded camera for broadcasting, uncluttered buttons and thumb stick gimbals.
Using Amimonʼs CONNEX Mini embedded zero latency technology the Evolve delivers incredible wireless live views in 1080p Full HD video at 60fps, with the latency as low as 10 milliseconds, to the Ground Station Hardware. With ultra-low latency transmission for over distances up to 600 meters, videographers can focus on capturing their images and never miss a critical shot. The 5.1-5.8GHz live view frequency transmission makes it is ideal for video production for TV commercials, documentaries, feature movies and other applications that require delay-free control of a cameras and drones.
SMART PILOT ASSISTANT
By reviewing their flight performance, Evolveʼs Smart Pilot Assistant helps users plan their flight, stay updated with the droneʼs flight status and make decisions about future flights.
1. Drone Radar
The Evolveʼs drone radar helps keep track of the aircraft at all times.
2. Alert Center
In-flight notifications and alerts are displayed on the view finder screen and within the alerts center
accessible though the lower touch screen. Alerts are classified by risk levels and color codes to ensure
that the user is well-informed. Alerts are also signaled through vibrations, voice signals and LED
3. Weather observatory
Evolveʼs weather observatory displays a summary of local weather conditions.
4. Map pre-loading
This function allows the selection and the upload into the ground station of any area maps
and ensures its display during out-door flight without Wi-Fi or cellular signal. The entire
process is handled manually on the 5″ touch screen
