Now that the launch is official, let’s compare the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced and the Autel EVO II Dual (640T) to see which one of these two very capable drones comes out on top when comparing the specifications.
Update: Autel dealer, Avexure just informed me that the 640T is not available for the US market. The EVO II Dual is and has a FLIR Systems sensor on board. The table below has been updated to reflect this.
DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced versus Autel EVO II Dual (640T)
Here we will be comparing the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced and the Autel EVO II Dual (640T) to which of these drones comes out on top when comparing them on specs alone.
Earlier today, Romeo Durscher, who recently left DJI, said the following about the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced:
The @DJIEnterprise Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is a direct response to the EVOII and was also meant to quickly show the muscle DJI can flex. While a great platform, internally DJI better improve and align. Flexing a muscle doesn’t always carry.
Let’s see how these drones compare!

At least on paper, these two drones seem to be very competitive. they mostly match each other in many of the important specifications such as thermal capabilities, size, weight, etc. However, while that may be the case these two quadcopters also differ in many ways. Here are some of the important things to consider.
The Autel Evo II Dual (and 640T) wins when it comes to flight time, lack of geo-fencing, max wind resistance, max operating altitude, video resolutions, storage capacity. In addition, the Autel EVO II Dual is considered to be “Made in the USA” which for some government customers might be important. Note that the drone still contains parts that are made in China just like all other drones as far as we know, including the Blue sUAS.
The DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced takes the lead when it comes to safety with its AirSense technology, RTK capability, zoom capabilities, operating temperature range, self-heating batteries, 24GN internal storage, range, superior video transmission system OcuSync 2.0, additional accessories such as the loudspeaker, spotlight, and strobe light.
However, paper specs only tell so much of the story. More important is how the drone operates in the field. What are the real-life transmission range and quality? How user-friendly it the app? What features are available? How does the drone fit into an existing drone fleet? Etc. Real-life, hands-on experience with both of these very capable drones is in my opinion the only way to tell which one comes out on top.
Let us know in the comments below, which of these two drones, the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced and the Autel EVO II Dual (640T), comes out on top as the best SaR, First Responder, Inspection, all-around unmanned aircraft, according to you. We are curious to hear your thoughts and considerations!
