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.

    Hello! Is there any autonomus surveilance drone?

  2. 쥬얼리는 누구입니꽈 on April 26, 2022 at 6:17 pm

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

  3. Filipe Augusto on April 26, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    I would feel like Mario with a Lakitu in Super Mario 64

  4. Axceusbays on April 26, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Scam

  5. Ubacow on April 26, 2022 at 6:23 pm

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

  6. enchodus on April 26, 2022 at 6:23 pm

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

  7. Kathleen Taylor on April 26, 2022 at 6:24 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

  8. Rick Rickard on April 26, 2022 at 6:24 pm

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

  9. GoneFishingStories on April 26, 2022 at 6:27 pm

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

  10. SuperKpal on April 26, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Oke chao Mavic Air

  11. John Smith on April 26, 2022 at 6:29 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.*

  12. The Verge on April 26, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Does autonomous flying make drones more appealing to you?

  13. 9razzler9 on April 26, 2022 at 6:32 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

  14. cgtalk ! on April 26, 2022 at 6:33 pm

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

  15. Burrows Forge on April 26, 2022 at 6:34 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

  16. Warm valves on April 26, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    That’s insane

  17. Nhat Huynh on April 26, 2022 at 6:38 pm

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

  18. Keeping It Real on April 26, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Cant wait my $100 is paid

  19. Manny Never Tells on April 26, 2022 at 6:44 pm

  32. Liam O'Reilly on April 26, 2022 at 6:59 pm

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

  33. right All on April 26, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Production will be extremely slow and will be overtaken by DJI

  34. Mark G Murphy on April 26, 2022 at 7:00 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.

  35. Drone Education Service’s “Daily Drone Show” on April 26, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Way to go. Great product.

  36. theymusthatetesla on April 26, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Actually quite scary 🙁

  37. ngenes1 on April 26, 2022 at 7:03 pm

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

  38. 토지사랑맨TV-토지ㅣ전원주택ㅣ촌집 on April 26, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    very good

  39. Dirt Therapy Down Under on April 26, 2022 at 7:05 pm

  40. Michael Sabedra on April 26, 2022 at 7:05 pm

  41. Franky Flowers on April 26, 2022 at 7:06 pm

  45. warren sanders on April 26, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Is this a publicly traded company? My God

  46. Sonu Basfore on April 26, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    I can’t believe this

  47. Germ7.62 on April 26, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Hmmm nice great camera and not weapon

  48. The Lock Picking Lebowski on April 26, 2022 at 7:13 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)

  49. MikeAIright on April 26, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    How fast can the drone fly backwards while tracking?

  50. Hellbent332 on April 26, 2022 at 7:15 pm

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