Media Sync Improvements

Skydio Cloud improvements include faster Media Sync uploads.

March 29, 2022

Skydio Cloud has improved the visibility into the data file transfer process and the drone configuration sync with two new menus, Cloud Settings and Upload Files. The menus are displayed in your drone’s INFO menu.

Cloud Settings

The Cloud Settings menu provides you with the ability to download features and offers visibility into the last time a sync occurred.
    1. Select Download features from Cloud to sync from Skydio Cloud to your controlling device.
    2. Select Sync Settings to Drone to sync Skydio Cloud settings from your controlling device to your drone.

Upload Files

Post-flight task management offers new visibility into the data files uploading to Skydio Cloud. If you have enabled GPS & Telemetry Data Capture on your Skydio Cloud account your post-flight data file transfer status and upload history will be available after you land.

Select Show Files or navigate to the Upload Files menu to view the File Queue and Upload History:

    • File Queue displays the upload status of flight metadata and telemetry logs
    • Upload History displays a list of data files that have been successfully uploaded
