We’ve optimized Skydio 2’s flight behaviors based on its ability to track a subject accurately. Using the Skydio app and a variety of different skills, you can adjust and alter Skydio 2's flight behavior to get the perfect shot.

Based on which flight mode you’re using, or whether or not Skydio 2 is currently tracking a subject, here are the altitude (height) specifications for Skydio 2:

  • When flying with just the Skydio app and tracking a subject(not using Controller or Beacon), the maximum height is 8m (26.87ft) - if that subject is a vehicle, the maximum height is 16m (53.75ft).
  • When Skydio 2 is not tracking a subject, the maximum height is 1,640 ft. (regardless of which control option is being used).
  • In addition to the above specs, when tracking a subject, Skydio 2 will nominally stay within 10m (32.8ft) of the subject (overall distance in relation to the person being followed) or 20m (65.6ft), if tracking a car.

It is always important to follow your local laws when it comes to flying your drone. Skydio 2’s height ceilings are compliant with FAA guidelines.
