    Smarter than the average self piloting drone and with multiple control options, including a beacon for when the drone can't see you, the Skydio 2 looks like some serious bit of kit.

    I'm keen to see some real world testing of this, but if the promo is to be believed i'm pretty excited.

    there's a few bits and pieces out. Drone U went with the team from Skydio and took it on some test flights at a ghost town. Action man Kyle Warner, a long time drone photography user, took it out for a test run in a VERY heavily wooded area, and put it thru some basic tests.






    Consensus around town is that it's a capable drone with a great set of features for either the solo user, or if you have a friend handy who's not that good as a pilot. :D


    Currently shipping to US and Canada only with more to follow, be aware that the price point mentioned (US 1k) is for the drone only - with the Beacon (which is the must have accessory) and/or Controller sold separately.
