Establishing a return location and return behaviors for your Skydio 2/2+ will ensure a safe return flight and landing.
When a return is triggered, either manually or autonomously, Skydio 2/2+ will first ascend to a specified height to ensure that no obstacles, people, or animals will be in the return pathway. You can also adjust the speed and orientation for the return trip and set lost connection behaviors. Skydio 2/2+ will retain its current obstacle avoidance setting while returning.
