[accordion heading="Formatting requests to the Skydio API"]

All requests to the Skydio API should contain an Authorization header with your API Token. Requests to the API should be formatted like this:



curl -X 'GET' \

  'https://api.skydio.com/api/v0/flights' \

  -H 'accept: application/json' \

  -H 'Authorization: <api_token_here>'


[accordion heading="Unable to log in to Skydio Cloud"] Go to cloud.skydio.com

    • enter your email address
    • enter the verification code sent to your email address

Ensure that you are logging in to your mobile device with the same email address that has been provisioned on Skydio Cloud.


[accordion heading="Have you set up your Skydio Cloud account?"]

You will need to configure your Skydio Cloud account before you can upload flight telemetry. See Getting Started with Skydio Cloud. Any media captured prior to configuring your Skydio Cloud will not sync. 

Ensure that the flight telemetry that you are trying to upload was captured after the configuration steps were completed—footage from before this point will not upload to the cloud.


[accordion heading="Is your device claimed in Skydio Cloud?"]

Step 1 - Select Settings

Step 2 - Select Devices

Step 3 - Select Claim Device

You cannot claim a vehicle that is already claimed by another organization. Contact Skydio customer support to delete a vehicle from an organization.


[accordion heading="Is your device connected to the Internet?"]

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


[accordion heading="Flight recording does not display"]

Uploading the flight recording will not take place unless you have purchased Media Sync, selected the type of media you want to upload, and connected your drone to power. Visit Skydio Cloud Media Sync for more information.
