Perform finer, more controlled inspections with Stop at Structure.

By default, as Skydio approaches obstacles it will veer away. With Stop at Structure, it will not deviate from its course when it is within 8 ft (2.5 m) of a structure. Instead, the drone will reduce speed and maintain position, allowing for more precise maneuvering in the immediate vicinity of the structure.

  • Adjust the maximum speed using the Speed Near Obstacles slider
  • If your speed is greater than 10 mph (4.5 m/s), Stop at Structure will not be active even if it is toggled on
  • Maximum controller speed settings apply when no structure is present

[note] Stop at Structure is active during manual flight, including when paused during a 3D Scan. [/note]
