The best autonomous drone just got better

The best autonomous drone just got better

The Skydio 2 feels like the stuff of dreams – a drone that can fly itself, follow you around without crashing into trees. Now, the idea is far more affordable at $999 for the craft itself, with upgraded cameras, battery life, navigation, size, weight, and a pair of optional $150 controllers if you need longer range and/or more control over filming.

  3. Nhat Huynh on July 27, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    So if that drone fly by it self? Will you be in trouble if it fly in a no fly zone?

  4. 9razzler9 on July 27, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    i feel like these can be some sort of security device. follow you trekking in the woods and beam for help if you get lost. or follow your kid if they are walking out unaccompanied and needed some sort of surveillance

  5. William Su on July 27, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I’m surprised DJI hasn’t bought them out yet.

  6. Thomas James on July 27, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    I love drones

  7. Franky Flowers on July 27, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    the best drones have wings.

  8. right All on July 27, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Production will be extremely slow and will be overtaken by DJI

  9. Epic Rey on July 27, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Honey, we have a new babysitter. 🤥

  10. iceboul doing things on July 27, 2021 at 9:15 pm

  12. Kililla on July 27, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Esse já o drone dos meus sonhos

  13. Rick Rickard on July 27, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    "Cheaters", just got WAY more complicated. Careful guys, if you see your girlfriend/wife looking up "GPS", on Google/Bing.

  14. ngenes1 on July 27, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Skydio, please venture with canon or Nikon camera lense and I will sell my DJI mavic 2 now.

  15. cgtalk ! on July 27, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    I’ll wait for the Skydio 3. Equal or better mange than the mavic 15 mile distant record with mods.

  16. Ramiro Capozzi on July 27, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Hello! Is there any autonomus surveilance drone?

  17. Alla Dean on July 27, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    The next generation of weaponry system

  18. SuperKpal on July 27, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Oke chao Mavic Air

  19. Liam O'Reilly on July 27, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    So is this drone not for taking photos or cinematic videos …is it just for following you ..?

  20. Sonu Basfore on July 27, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    I can’t believe this

  21. 토지사랑맨TV-토지ㅣ전원주택ㅣ촌집 on July 27, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    very good

  22. E Laurole on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Imagine putting Samsungs new graphene battery technology on drones🤔

  23. Kathleen Taylor on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    It would be great but you can’t buy it cause there isn’t any available……not till the middle of 2020 it is like winning the lottery

  24. Dirt Therapy Down Under on July 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Im keen to get one of these instead of a DJI , only thing is they dont sell in Australia………

  25. Hellbent332 on July 27, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    I’ll wait for the 3rd Gen with at least 60 min recording time.

  26. MikeAIright on July 27, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    How fast can the drone fly backwards while tracking?

  27. Drone Education Services on July 27, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Way to go. Great product.

  28. GoneFishingStories on July 27, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    sadly the video quality doesn’t look to great..

  29. Michael Sabedra on July 27, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Made in USA sold me

  30. Axceusbays on July 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Scam

  31. Germ7.62 on July 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Hmmm nice great camera and not weapon

  32. Burrows Forge on July 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Any chance to use a custom gps dongle? I’m looking for a drone for falconry, and I’d love for something to follow a hawk. The remote would be too big

  33. Ishtube23 on July 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I need a drone that shoots the sky. Not humans. Help?

  34. theymusthatetesla on July 27, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Actually quite scary 🙁

  35. The Lock Picking Lebowski on July 27, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    The last word in each of the narrator’s sentences sharply drops off in volume. It’s one of the weirdest ways of speaking I’ve heard. (or *didn’t* hear)

  36. Ten Bird Nim on July 27, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Come on, let’s buy American! Skydio is made right here in the states!

  37. enchodus on July 27, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Good for the competition skydio, enough monopolizing by the overly expensive dgi drones!

  38. Mark G Murphy on July 27, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    I’m confused, do you like this drone or not. I’ve watched 2 of your videos and they are conflicting especially when you compare the content to the title of your video.

  39. Sadness MDD on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    The Midnight Gospel be like:

  40. John Smith on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    *Video quality is a bit of problem, no gimbal, low and unswappable battery life, no fold… And much more unstable you can see on **04:20**, I like competition but don’t blame them, R&D Budget 1/100 of it bigger competitor, dispite much higher price.*

  41. The Verge on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Does autonomous flying make drones more appealing to you?

  42. BLUCK LIGHT FOX ART on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    hi the verge you need know were you can fly it FAA web site nice video well done a+

  43. davidsirmons on July 27, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Too bad it can’t fold up for easy carry.

  44. Md.Moinul Islam on July 27, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    MASHAALLAH khub valo

  45. tyeb54 Dji on July 27, 2021 at 9:56 pm

  47. enchodus on July 27, 2021 at 9:57 pm
