Skydio introduces all-new Skydio 2, first true DJI Mavic 2 Pro competitor?


Haye Kesteloo


Finally, it is here! The all-new and vastly improved Skydio 2 drone. The long-awaited successor to the ground-breaking Skydio R1 autonomously-flying drone that was introduced in early 2018. The new Skydio 2 is designed and built right here in the USA and it competes head-on with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Its main camera, which is stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal, shoots 4K 60fps HDR video and 12.3MP stills with its Sony 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor and f/2.8 lens. The Skydio 2 also comes with six (!) additional 4K cameras (three on top and three on the bottom of the aircraft) that enable it to fly autonomously for up to 23 minutes. The new drone is both smaller and lighter than the original R1 and has been completely redesigned. The quadcopter no longer has the ‘ring’ around the outside of the aircraft and has props that are mounted above the arms in the back but below the arms in the front. It seems that Skydio went all out with the new drone design and we cannot wait until we can fly one ourselves. The Skydio 2 starts at $999 and a Controller and a Skydio Beacon (magic wand) can be bought for an additional $149 each. The company also promises to repair or replace your lost or damaged drone for free as long as you fly within their safety guidelines. Designed AND built right here in the USA with ground-breaking features and priced well below the ever-more expensive DJI Mavic 2 Pro… It seems that we finally have some real competition!
