How to enable flight with a gamepad controller

Step 1 - Connect your gamepad to your computer using a USB cable or pair to your computer via Bluetooth

    • Skydio Cloud will automatically recognize the controller
    • If a controller is paired you can still fly using keyboard inputs. If the keyboard and controller are used simultaneously, Skydio Cloud will respect the controller input over the keyboard

Step 2 - Configure your gamepad settings in the settings menu


    • Choose your control mode
    • Configure your sensitivity settings

[note] Settings will remain for the current browser tab session [/note]

Step 3 - Fly!
