To initiate a scan, you need to change the Vehicle Mode from Skills to 3D Scan. Your Vehicle Mode will persist through flights and power cycles.

Quick Steps

Step 1 - Power on your drone and Controller  
Step 2 - Select the gray button that says Switch Mode CS_3DS_X2_media_UI_switch-mode1.png

Step 3 - Select 3D Scan and reboot

Skydio will automatically restart and reconnect to the Controller/Enterprise App


Step 4 - Ready to begin scan setup

After Skydio has finished entering the 3D Scan Vehicle Mode, you are ready to fly.

Ensure your Logs Card has been formatted before starting a scan.
