Hello fellow pilots. I’m a part 107 commercial pilot that has just purchased my first Skydio. Our company has many different drones including phantoms, mavics, etc.

Our big hope with the Skydio was the ability to fly closer to things with confidence of not crashing. Safety is paramount on construction sites when using drones. If we can confidently get closer to the subject being photographed with increased safety then we can use a lower cost 12mp drone like the Skydio to replace a 20mp phantom with the same or better results.
Additionally the autonomy creates a bunch of other ideas for uses around a construction site.
It’s an exciting time and I can’t wait to learn more about the Skydio ecosystem here.

youre definitely gonna want the "AEF" software @ $1500/yr.
From Skydio's Website:
AEF delivers a new user experience optimized for enterprise and public sector missions with new AI-pilot assistance capabilities that further increase the benefits of Skydio 2.

Advanced features in Autonomy Enterprise Foundation include:

  • Close Proximity Obstacle Avoidance to fly as close as 16” (roughly 40 cm.) to obstacles and easily go through standard size doors with confidence
  • Precision Mode for maximum control over the position of the drone during detailed inspections or in tight spaces
  • Vertical View to capture images by orienting the gimbal camera straight up overhead
  • Superzoom™ to provide an omnidirectional view of the drone surroundings and zoom into points of interest with a powerful digital zoom
  • Point-of-Interest Orbit to fly autonomously around a user-specified point on the map.
  • Track In Place to visually track a subject from a fixed position
  • Visual Return-to-Home to use visual wayfinding when flying back to base in GPS-denied environments
  • Offline Maps to fly in LTE-denied environments by saving maps in the Skydio Enterprise App

Thanks for the tip. I did get the AEF software skills.
