New Lite and Nano firmware delivers increased range and other anticipated features


We’ve released a new firmware update that will bring much-requested features to our Lite and Nano Series. These features will include easily-accessible flight logs, voice notification options, as well as an increase to the maximum flight distance. 

Flight Logs

We have improved the accessibility of flight logs within the Autel Sky App, making it easier for our users to access them and send them to our customer service team, should the need arise. 


From the Profile menu in the Autel Sky App, select Flight Log, then the clipboard icon in the upper right corner. From there you’ll be able to view three different types of logs: Flight Logs, RC Logs, and App Logs. 


Select the log menu you want, and you’ll be prompted to connect to the drone’s Wi-Fi. From there, you can quickly download specific logs straight to your smartphone. At this point, you can upload them to the cloud if our Customer Service or Maintenance team requests them for repairs or service. When uploaded, the files will be stored in a regional server. All customer data in the U.S. is stored on AWS servers in Texas.


We hope this new update will make it much easier for users and support staff to send and receive  flight log information. 

Voiceover Options

We’ve received valuable customer feedback from those pilots who use the voiceover function often and wanted the ability to turn off sound notifications.


Users can now toggle voice notifications on and off for general alerts and obstacle avoidance alerts. 


From the Settings menu, navigate to Safety, then Advanced Settings. Scroll down to Voice Overs, and toggle the switch on or off.


This is recommended only for experienced pilots who are familiar with their drone and its systems. 

Distance Increase

The Nano and Lite series  have now  increased maximum flight distance by a factor of ten. The maximum distance can now be set up to 5000 meters. 

Update Versions

PLEASE NOTE: The Lite and Lite+ firmware versions may display different numerical designations than the Nano Series versions. These update numbers will begin with 1 or 3. The firmware features are the same, the different numbers simply represent different chipsets in the aircraft and the remote controller. 


We hope this guide makes it easier to use the new firmware’s features to their full potential.
