I am equipping new guys for my next month trip, so I plan to add a drone to record my journey, but for a long time,  I can not decide which brand drone to choose.

In general, there are 4 options currently,but who can help me make a choice. HELP ME!!!



option 1:Autel Evo    USD $1,030  https://www.diagmart.com/products/autel-robotics-evo-drone-foldable

option 2:MAVIC PRO PLATINUM USD $999  https://store.dji.com/product/mavic-pro-platinum

option 3: Mavic 2 Pro  USD $1,499

I only see three options?

Most will depend on your budget and your 'needs'.
I can't speak about the autel as I have zero experience with them.

If you need the 'best' low light / dynamic range performance and have a big budget, the Mavic 2 Pro is your best choice.
If the budget is a little less, the Mavic 2 Zoom is a perfect alternative with a huge advantage over the M2P (it can zoom!)
This is giving you something unique because you can keep a bit more distance and still get your subject framed
The low light performance + dynamic range might be a little less, but if you mainly fly in daylight conditions you probably won't notice that a lot.

And for the budget option : the Mavic Pro Platinum is (still) a very capable drone. I have the Mavic Pro and used the extra cash to buy the fly more combo.
Never looked back since.
Ok, the camera is not as good as the M2P, but still I can get very decent images / footage with that bird.

Good luck with the choice!

I have to agree with Maddox. I would figure out what I would use the drone for and then find the drone for the price. If the new drones are out of your price range, look at refurbished drones DJI stands by their refurbished equipment.
