Around 18 months prior, Skydio knocked my socks off. The then-obscure organization displayed the R1 automaton to the world, and it was very exceptional. Regularly, pursue highlights and snag evasion aren’t extremely successful, or just work in specific modes (for example with settles). Skydio’s R1 put these highlights up front, and it did them unimaginably well. Be that as it may, there were still provisos. The R1 was restrictively costly ($2,499 at dispatch), enormous, burdensome and constrained in what it could do past all that following and snag maintaining a strategic distance from.
Enter the Skydio 2, the organization’s second take on an automaton. It’s less expensive, littler and substantially more adaptable. The expectation is that it will be the genuinely necessary DJI rival we merit, and I’m amped up for it enough to state directly here that it is. However, and yes there are some buts, regardless it has a few edges that need smoothing out. I’ll get to those in great time, however until further notice, we should begin with the positives.
