    • disable - the maximum allowed flight altitude

Indoor Height Ceiling:

When flying indoors without GPS, Skydio will prevent you from flying above 66 feet (20 meters). You have the option to disable this Indoor Height Ceiling. 
If you choose to disable your indoor Height Ceiling, ensure that your drone maintains a distance of 66 feet (20 meters) from any surfaces such as walls or structures to ensure robust visual navigation.  indoor_height_menu.jpg

It is important to follow your local laws when it comes to 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.
