My skydio went for her maiden flight this evening. I decided to only operate using my phone for the first go. After the fact I wished I'd have inverted the controls. As it was, this thing is pretty freaking cool!

Had it follow me walking through some trees, it was interesting watching it pick it's path. It may have benefited from having the floor off so it could go under some limbs, but it did really well.

Tried out a few 'skills', really impressed how it tracks me, no comparison to my cheaper drones that easily lose me while walking.

Case landing was perfect, video looks great, photos pulled from video looked sharp and colorful.

Maybe tomorrow I'll try out the controller or beacon. I didn't test out range, which is just as well since I forgot to put the antennas up.

It's southeast Kansas. Uploaded photo doesn't do the skydio justice, original photo to large to upload so I reduced it on my phone...
