    Poor Customer Support, Crash warranty denied

    sorry for your drone crashing. happens to the best of us. If I was Skydio looking at that video, I would be suspicious. something is up with the video. in the background, you clearly see sunlight but it's in shadow where you're at. if it was an exposure issue, the whole screen should've...

    Beacon Handlebar Mount

    the ram phone mount is not good for rugged riding. I have it for my mountain bike and it's dropped my phones on multiple occasions. if you're riding on a smooth street, then it's fine. I've since moved on to another mount.

    Camera frame rates

    there are so many videos on the Internet to describe what to do. here is a good one: the basic gist is if you want slow motion, you have your timeline at a slower framerate than your footage. you don't want to use the rate stretching or speed/duration features because you are decimating...

At this time supply is very constrained and if you're trying to buy multiple, you're going to make very mad customers. This is happening...

    Camera frame rates

    New to Skydio 2!

    After a very long process, I'm finally a Skydio 2 owner! My first drone experiences were with the 3DR Solo drones. I picked them up (yes, multiple) when 3DR was basically going out of business. They were wonderful drones. I also had some experience with my brother's DJI Phantom 3 drone...
