Case Landing is an awesome feature that enables Skydio 2 to land directly on its case, avoiding dusty/muddy surfaces and rough terrain to get a smooth and safe landing every time.
When should I use it?
Case Landing is best used on surfaces that are level with the ground (fields, roads, trails, etc). Always make sure that the Skydio 2 case is stable and flat before making a case landing.
WARNING: Do not initiate a case landing near water or on moving platforms (boats, moving vehicles etc.). Additionally, landing on elevated platforms (vehicles, tables, etc.) is not recommended, since Skydio 2 may perceive them as obstacles and maneuver away from them.
Place your case on the ground with the Skydio logo facing up.
Fly Skydio 2 over the case so that the camera can look down and see the logo.
A yellow ring will appear around the case in the live video feed to indicate that Skydio 2 has seen the case and will begin landing on it.
Skydio 2 will then land on top of the case.
Note: Piloting or nudging the vehicle during a case landing will cancel the case landing and continue with a normal landing.
What if I don’t see a yellow ring?
If you do not see the yellow ring, Skydio 2 will not land on the case and will continue to descend straight down. Note that Case Landing works best if you initiate the landing from a higher altitude; if you start landing too low to the ground, Skydio 2 may not see the case.
Can I make a Case Landing using the Return to Home function?
If a flight is initiated by taking off from a case (or a case is placed at Skydio 2’s exact take off point), GPS positional accuracy cannot be relied upon to guarantee a case landing when using the Return to Home function (or in the case of an RTH triggered by lost communication).
Can I use Case Landing with my Pro Case?
Yes! Case Landing works with both the original Skydio 2 hard-shell case and the Skydio 2 Pro Case.
