After your flight, you may view all photos and videos captured on your drone’s microSD card in the Media tab of the Skydio 2 app.

  • To save one or more photos and videos directly to your mobile device’s photo album, long-press on a file to enter selection mode and select all the media you wish to copy, then select Save to Phone.
  • You may also tap on any photo or video to preview it before saving.
  • When utilizing the Interval photo mode, all photos captured will appear as a single stack of photos. Tapping on the stack will allow you to scroll through individual photos one by one.
  • When previewing a video, you may create a clip of the video to save instead of copying the entire video to your mobile device, which may be significantly faster and take up less space.
  • Skydio 2 can record video in either AVC (H.264) or HEVC (H.265). Different mobile devices and personal computers have different compatibilities with these encoding standards. Attempting to save a video or make a clip with an encoding that is not compatible with your mobile device may cause playback issues.
  • When capturing photos in JPG+DNG mode, only the JPG files will be displayed in the Skydio 2 app. You may download the DNG image files directly from the SD card.

Quick Steps

You can remove the microSD card from your Skydio 2 and use it with any microSD or SD card reader to view and copy your full-resolution videos and photos on your personal computer.

You may also directly attach Skydio 2 to your computer with the USB-C cable to view and copy your full-resolution videos and photos off of the microSD card. Connecting via USB to a computer that does not supply charging power will cause Skydio 2 to run off of battery power and may drain the battery.
