What if I crash my Skydio 2?

Skydio 2 is designed to be tough enough for minor bumps, scratches, and collisions that do not result in a crash. If you experience a collision or incident during flight, inspect for damage to the chassis, propeller blades, gimbal, camera, and battery before flying again. Always clean your camera lenses pre-flight.

How many batteries are in the Pro Kit upgrade?

The Pro Kit upgrade comes with 2 extra batteries (+1 with Skydio 2 Starter Kit) to speed up delivery and reduce shipment costs. Three batteries is the maximum allowed to avoid the dangerous goods classification which would impose additional inspection and result in longer delivery times. You can purchase additional batteries a la carte.

When will my Skydio 2 ship?

Skydio 2 ships within 5-7 days of placing your order.

I live outside the US or Canada. Can I buy Skydio products?

We currently only sell and ship to the US (excluding US territories) and Canada, but hope to expand to other countries soon.

Skydio is working hard to expand into international markets but currently only offers Skydio 2 to consumers in the United States and Canada.

However, Skydio drones and our integrated software solutions - Skydio Autonomy Enterprise Foundation, 3D Scan, and Cloud are available in Australia and New Zealand for Enterprise and Public Sector customers only. That does not include consumer households.

If you're an ANZ Enterprise or Public Sector customer, please visit our ANZ-specific Skydio website for more information and links to contact our sales team.

Skydio 2 is not currently certified for use or warrantied for consumer use outside of the US and Canada.

What comes with my Skydio 2 Starter Kit? Does it come with a case too?

  • One battery, two additional propellers (one of each type beyond the four required to fly), one USB (type C) cable for charging and data transfer, and one USB (type C) wall adapter for charging.
  • This all comes in a convenient, custom-fit, durable hardshell carrying case for transport.
  • Accessories like Beacon and Controller are sold separately (see below).
      • Also note that the Skydio 2 Starter Kit does not come with a microSD card (and requires that microSD card for operation). SanDisk Extreme microSD Cards are sold separately on our store, and are also included with any of the upgrade kits available.
  • See this article for more details.

What are the shipping options for my purchase?

Skydio offers free UPS Ground shipping (for US orders), and free UPS Economy International shipping for orders shipping to Canada. Upgraded shipping options are not currently available. All shipments require a signature at delivery.

Are Skydio 2 or the accessories waterproof?

No. We recommend caution when flying over water. Skydio Beacon can be easily protected with third-party water sports cases or straps, much in the same way that you would protect a non-waterproof phone.

Controller looks like the Parrot Anafi controller - what's that all about?

We partnered with Parrot for our Skydio Controller, and yes, it is the same hardware that comes with the Anafi. However, the Controller is pre-loaded with Skydio software, and is set up to be used exclusively with Skydio 2. It won't be compatible with the Anafi, nor will an Anafi controller be compatible with Skydio 2.
To learn more about Controller, check out this section of our site.
