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.

  2. tyeb54 Dji on July 25, 2020 at 7:56 am

    Apk en français compatible androïde??

  3. William Su on July 25, 2020 at 7:57 am

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

  4. Kililla on July 25, 2020 at 7:57 am

    Esse já o drone dos meus sonhos

    Honey, we have a new babysitter. 🤥

  8. Vishal Raj on July 25, 2020 at 8:02 am

    The skynet is rising silently…

  9. davidsirmons on July 25, 2020 at 8:03 am

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

  10. Sonu Basfore on July 25, 2020 at 8:05 am

    I can’t believe this

  11. Dokter Roetker on July 25, 2020 at 8:07 am

    Basically an improved Airdog

  12. Zo Sky on July 25, 2020 at 8:12 am

    China will copy this

    again.

  13. Franky Flowers on July 25, 2020 at 8:12 am

    the best drones have wings.

  14. Rick Rickard on July 25, 2020 at 8:13 am

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

  15. Juz Oneill on July 25, 2020 at 8:13 am

    Drones they have come so far except for the price they cost about $40-$50 to make the rest is pure profit . and they know we will pa,y my life isn’t that interesting to watch for $2000 bucks for 30 minutes of flight time don’t get me wrong I love technology just not at the prices they want for it

  16. The Verge on July 25, 2020 at 8:14 am

    Does autonomous flying make drones more appealing to you?

  17. Night657 on July 25, 2020 at 8:17 am

    The remote resembles the parrot anafi remote

  18. Lutz Anton on July 25, 2020 at 8:19 am

    How can you catch it?

  19. Hellbent332 on July 25, 2020 at 8:19 am

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

  20. redstrat1234 on July 25, 2020 at 8:19 am

    That’s insane

  21. enchodus on July 25, 2020 at 8:20 am

    Im in LOOOOOOOOOOOve …

  22. 9razzler9 on July 25, 2020 at 8:21 am

    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

  23. enchodus on July 25, 2020 at 8:22 am

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

  24. John Smith on July 25, 2020 at 8:23 am

    *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.*

  25. Filipe Augusto on July 25, 2020 at 8:23 am

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

  26. Aditya K on July 25, 2020 at 8:24 am

    I was seeing skydio 1 and that thing is amazing, now they has skydio 2 which is awesome

  27. Burrows Forge on July 25, 2020 at 8:24 am

    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

  28. ツJester on July 25, 2020 at 8:26 am

    How can it do that?,and my Sister cant?

  29. cgtalk ! on July 25, 2020 at 8:26 am

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

  30. Drone Education Services on July 25, 2020 at 8:26 am

    Way to go. Great product.

  31. Keeping It Real on July 25, 2020 at 8:28 am

    Cant wait my $100 is paid

  32. Thomas James on July 25, 2020 at 8:29 am

    I love drones

  33. E Laurole on July 25, 2020 at 8:34 am

    Imagine putting Samsungs new graphene battery technology on drones🤔

  34. right All on July 25, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Production will be extremely slow and will be overtaken by DJI

  35. Axceusbays on July 25, 2020 at 8:39 am

    Scam

  36. Kathleen Taylor on July 25, 2020 at 8:40 am

    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

  37. 토지사랑맨TV-토지ㅣ전원주택ㅣ촌집 on July 25, 2020 at 8:40 am

    very good

  38. The Lock Picking Lebowski on July 25, 2020 at 8:41 am

    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)

  39. SuperKpal on July 25, 2020 at 8:42 am

    Oke chao Mavic Air

  40. GoneFishingStories on July 25, 2020 at 8:42 am

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

  41. theymusthatetesla on July 25, 2020 at 8:43 am

    Actually quite scary 🙁

  42. Joshua Sama on July 25, 2020 at 8:44 am

    Clicked because of Dio

  43. ngenes1 on July 25, 2020 at 8:47 am

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

  44. Liam O'Reilly on July 25, 2020 at 8:48 am

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

  45. Nhat Huynh on July 25, 2020 at 8:48 am

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

  46. Dirt Therapy Down Under on July 25, 2020 at 8:49 am

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

  47. MikeAIright on July 25, 2020 at 8:49 am

    How fast can the drone fly backwards while tracking?

  48. Caleb on July 25, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Continuous fascinating info from the get go of this video! Excellent work!

  49. Mark G Murphy on July 25, 2020 at 8:50 am

    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.

  50. eM on July 25, 2020 at 8:52 am

    Boring. I’ll wait for DJI to respond with a better model
