Had not really played with the beacon before yesterday and just now noticed it is sufficiently magnetic to stick to my fridge!

That's interesting! I wonder if a mount is in the works?

That would make perfect sense - actually I was thinking about putting together a forearm band for wearing it when I’m out riding but a magnetic mount would also be great for many applications.

I haven't gotten mine yet, got the controller though... It's a good idea if done right!
 
Update: Confirmed with Skydio it is intentionally magnetic.
 
Just watched a video by Accelerated Heights
where he velcro'd the Skydio Beacon to a Mavic, and the Skydio DID FOLLOW the Beacon! I like Velcro. I plan to velcro a beacon to my bike's handlebars.

Need a big enough flat surface to get a large enough contact patch.
