Skydio 2/2+ Frequently Asked Questions
Order and Warranty Questions
When will my Skydio 2+ ship?
Currently, Skydio 2+ ships within 3-5 business 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 drones to consumers in the United States and Canada.
However, Skydio drones and our integrated software solutions - Skydio Autonomy Enterprise, 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 2/2+ 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 comes with the Pro Kit upgrade? How much does it cost?
Protect your drone and all the accessories you need to get the job done. The Pro Kit upgrade comes with everything listed below (Skydio 2 drone is not included with the Pro Kit upgrade):
How many batteries are in the Pro Kit upgrade?
The Pro Kit upgrade comes with 2 extra batteries (+1 with Skydio 2/2+ 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.
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 (Duty Paid). Upgraded shipping options are not currently available. All shipments require a signature at delivery.
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 2/2+. It won't be compatible with the Anafi, nor will an Anafi controller be compatible with Skydio 2/2+.
To learn more about Controller, check out this section of our site.
Can I use an ND filter on the main camera lens of Skydio 2/2+?
Yes! The bezel of the main camera was designed to support ND filters. We sell a set that is precisely engineered for the Skydio 2 with a seamless magnetic connection. More details on the PolarPro Cinema Series ND Filter set:
- Includes ND8, ND16, and ND32 filters to cover a majority of lighting conditions.
- Strong Magnetic HotSwap System lets you quickly switch out filters.
- Cinema Series Glass features a low refractive index, color neutrality, and outstanding clarity.
- Includes a magnetic filter case for fast filter access.
