With the new, lower-frequency design of its propeller blades, Skydio 2 is much quieter than our previous-generation R1

Skydio 2 generates noise equivalent to about 70dBA @ ~10feet when you are launching (or when it’s hovering at the closest range). To put this into perspective, that’s roughly comparable to the sound of a dishwasher running.

Of course, the relative volume generated by the propellers will also be influenced by a number of factors, like the environment around the drone, and the speed of travel through the air.
