How long can I fly Skydio R1?

The swappable battery in the R1 allows for an average flight time of about 16 minutes on a fully charged battery. We offer extra batteries in our store if you need more juice.

Your available flight times will vary with environmental conditions. For instance, when flying in windy conditions, the rotors may have to work a little harder, which will impact battery life.

The Skydio app will show you how much battery life is left during any flight. The app will also warn you in advance when the battery is getting low. Note that you’ll want to fully charge all of your batteries before your first flight.
