Autel Evo II Dual 640R
Flight guidelines for inspecting solar farms with a Autel Evo II.
The Autel Evo II Dual 640R (FLIR Radiometric) with it’s 640 x 512 resolution FLIR Boson thermal core and 14mm lens can meet the data requirements quickly and efficiently. We are able to support the 640R V1, V2, and Enterprise models. Please note that Raptor Maps does not support the Autel Evo II Dual 640T at this time.
Drone: Autel Evo II Dual 640R
Computer: Smart Controller
Flight Planning Software: Autel Explorer
Type of Inspection
Please upload both the “MAX.jpg” RGB imagery and the “IRX.jpg” IR imagery to the Raptor App.
For both IR and RGB inspection-level imagery sets, sensor heading must remain fixed throughout the flight. For example, if flying a fixed-tilt, ground mount site with panels facing south, the sensor should face North throughout the flight. Datasets, where sensor heading alternates with each flight pass (sensor faces North one flight pass and South on the next flight pass), will warrant a reflight.
Front Overlap Ratio: 70%
Side Overlap Ratio: 20%
File Format: RJPG
Note: Obliques / High flys are required as part of the flight. For information about how to correctly fly and take oblique images, please see Capturing Oblique Images.
The long edge of the solar row aligns with the long edge of the image.
