I believe the drone has to complete the initial “setup” of the app where Skydio sends the “code” to your email BEFORE it will connect to any device. I had forgotten that when I suggested using a beacon or controller might get it going. My bad if that caused any confusion.

The drone may not even start to broadcast its SSID before that SETUP step is done.
In any event I don’t think going to the basement would make any difference. 🤨
I posted the suggestion is because of two reasons:
(1) (Device) Is this an issue that is related to Europe's mobile phone and Skydio 2+ connectivity?
Beacon 2+ is sold with Skydio 2+ and the two devices should not have any connectivity issue.
If Beacon 2+ can't find Skydio 2+, and the setup is done properly. Then, there will be some other reasons causing the issue.
So, if the beacon can't find Skydio 2+ drone, it is not simple Wifi hardware
supportive issue that is happened with Europe's specific Wifi regulation. - So, doing a test in a place without any other Wifi interference will help identify the issue.
(2) (New design - firmware layer) is this an issue that is related to Skydio's new (unknown) policy for where to operate its drone.
Someone mentioned the issue might be caused by the design. He thinks when Skydio 2+ drone finds itself outside of the US, it stops its Wifi function.
In this case, going to the basement or a place without any wifi and GPS interference to do the test (setup) will help identify the issue.
