The settings menu allows for the configuration of in-flight controls of Skydio X2E. The controller must be connected to the drone to access the drone settings. The Flight Limits menu provides access to drone settings for Height Ceiling and Indoor Height Ceiling.

Step 1 - Select the device Settings icon


Step 2 - Select the Drone tab

Step 3 - Select the Height Limits menu CS_X2E_Flight_Limits_menu_UI.png

Height Ceiling:

  • Enable to set the maximum altitude between 9 ft (3 m) and 1500 ft (457 m)
  • Disable for a maximum allowed flight altitude

Weak GPS Altitude Limit:

Enabled by default, Weak GPS Altitude Limit prevents flight above 33 ft (10 m) outdoors and 66 feet (20 m) indoors.
Toggling OFF disables the altitude limit, and your drone will fly using only the vision navigation. To reduce the risk of an emergency landing maintain a flight path near surfaces and objects. GPS_Weak_Altitude_Limit.jpg

Skydio X2E has a maximum operational altitude above sea level of 15,000 feet (4.57 Kilometers)

It is important to follow your local laws when flying your drone. The Height Ceilings are compliant with FAA guidelines. As a Skydio pilot, you are solely responsible for monitoring and managing your drone's battery life to ensure enough flight time to return safely.
