The Skydio Cloud dashboard provides access to flight telemetry uploaded to Skydio Cloud. You will need to configure your Skydio Cloud account and enable Data Capture before you can view flight telemetry. See Getting Started with Skydio Cloud to set up your Skydio Cloud account.


Quick Steps

Step 1 - Enable Data Capture:

    • Sign in to Skydio Cloud
    • Select Settings

    • Toggle GPS & Telemetry ON


If GPS & Telemetry is toggled off the flight path and other telemetry data will not display on the flight screen

Step 2 - Attach the battery to your Skydio drone and power ON

Step 5 - Sync flight telemetry post-flight

    • Connect your controlling device to the drone

Is your device/controller connected to the Internet?

Ensure that you are connected to the Internet or cellular data.
