Skydio recently released a new firmware update for its Skydio 2 drone – version 5.41.77. According to the company, this update focuses on flight performance, tracking updates and critical flight bug fixes.
Improving flight range and control distance, it would be a perfect drone in specs.
Beyond this general information, Skydio has not gone into more detail about the improvements that come with the update. However, DroneDJ's Haye Kesteloo gave an interesting clue as she told her experience. According to him, when inserting a 64GB SD card in the aircraft, a warning appeared in the Skydio application saying that the storage card was too slow to record videos.
"I thought it was an interesting feature. At least you're informed before you go out and fly the drone." – Haye Kesteloo.
The firmware update is quick and simple to do, taking about five minutes. The Skydio app downloads to your smartphone and, once completed, updates the drone.
If the pilot uses the Beacon control, it also needs to be updated. With this second procedure done, just plug the device into the phone to get a stronger signal and start the flight. It is possible to find More information about the upgrade process here.
Skydio 2 was announced in early October this year with the promise of transforming the drone market. It represents the best we have in autonomous resources so far, and the company has relied so much on its product that it has already challenged the consumer: if you, or even a child, could hit the drone while flying, the purchased ship would be repaired or replaced. for free.
Drone also maintains excellent stabilization while shooting
To get some sense of this drone's level, Skydio 2 is a strong contender for DJI Mavic 2 Pro [his analysis here].
The drone weighs less than 1kg, can reach a top speed of approximately 60km / h, record at 4K 60fps and stand alone for up to 23 minutes. As the main processor, we have a Nvidia Tegra X2.
Each batch of Skydio 2 drones has limited units. The first batch, made available at the time of launch, began shipping to pilots in late November. Second drone drones will reach their buyers in the second half of next year.
