Skydio 2/2+ is controlled using Skydio App, Skydio Controller, or Skydio Beacon.


Skydio App -

uses your mobile device WiFi as the communication link to your Skydio 2/2+, providing you with flight controls and real-time video and image capture.

The simple, intuitive interface allows you to select from a list of cinematic and tracking skills that make even an inexperienced pilot look like an expert. 


Skydio Controller -

provides advanced flight controls and an extended range of operation for your Skydio 2/2+. Skydio Controller uses your mobile device as your first-person view (FPV) screen, allowing you to fly with precision. Skydio 2/2+ obstacle avoidance is always running in the background making it easier to get that great shot. 

As soon as you land your Skydio 2/2+ you can create high-resolution clips of your flights with synchronized audio recorded from your mobile device, or download full-resolution video footage to your computer for further edits.


Skydio Beacon -

can be used in combination with the Skydio app or as a separate, independent device. Skydio Beacon offers a strong GPS signal for more robust subject tracking. When paired with your Skydio 2/2+, Beacon will allow you to launch, land, and access shortcuts to many of the cinematic skills.
