    Second Flight

    it's independent of the controller or the maneuver your doing, it's more to do with visual vs gps tracking, the drone will use visual in close and gps further out, there's a point between the closest standoff distance and the second distance where it switches between the two tracking types...

    Second Flight

    It's a possible issue whenever it's using visual tracking. When it happens at some point it will eventually realize it's not following the person with the beacon, hopefully sooner then later, I've see it go quite a ways out before that happened.

    Second Flight

    When it's moving in close like that at the end of the dronie it switches back to using visual tracking, the visual tracking is easily confused when there's multiple possible subjects around. It's done it to me a couple times, it's scary watching it fly off in the distance chasing someone else.

    Walk In The Park / First Wreck Experience

    Yeah, I see what you mean, it seemed to forget the altitude it was set at. I see the vid just stopped, was that the end of the file? If so it might be an early indication of an issue and the drone's loss in altitude might have just been a precursor to it's brain going off line. It shouldn't...

    Not that would help you to hear the beep over the other sounds. I just keep an eye on it but I wish the battery life was displayed in larger text, it's kind of hard to read at a glance.

    Walk In The Park / First Wreck Experience

    When it's full out trying to catch up that's a risky time if it's low to the ground. It tries to look out further and at the same time the speed means it sometimes doesn't see small stuff in time to do much about it. Not sure if that was a factor in your crash but seeing that it didn't damage...

    Poor Customer Support, Crash warranty denied

    I don't think that was lucky ether. How fast were you cruising along at shortly after that? Asking because it didn't rise up as speed increased, same thing I see if it has room to operate. We're fortunate, desert is an ideal flying location. I'm impressed by all the technical details you're...

    beacon control in reverse

    Sounds like you got it, I can't really talk to how the IOS handles the network but on my android as soon as the app opens up I get a big blue button that says network settings, if I hit that it goes to the phones wifi. Sounds like you're doing basically the same thing. The order you do all...

    Phone will not connect to my Skydio 2 **solved**

    That's a common issue with VPNs and local (non-internet) connections.

    Every flight is a connection struggle

    Sounds like your phone is automatically connecting to networks you're logged into before. That should be turned off for the Skydio and the Beacon. You don't want to delete the skydio (drone) from your networks because that's the connection you use when you fly from the app. Once you figure...

    Walk In The Park / First Wreck Experience

    You might want to put in a problem report to SD and share your log files. I use it exclusively to follow a MC and while I've had it creep in or out before it's never hit anything unless I was ether going too fast for it to see and avoid an obstacle or the height floor was turned off and it was...

    Battery getting low, I often don't hear it riding with my helmet on.

    Poor Customer Support, Crash warranty denied

    Yeah, nothing they did was right except for the refund. What gets me is Skydio is continuously compared as a company to DJI which has 14,000 employees despite skydio only having about 250.

    Every flight is a connection struggle

    Don't wait until the sync gets done to connect the next device, you just want to make sure that device (tablet or phone) connects up to the beacon and not the drone, from there the sync goes quickly.
