When they can sell one $7K drone instead of seven $1k drones with the required tech support, marketing, packaging... it's clear where their priority should lie.
Focusing on enterprise and government is smart play. It would be business malpractice were they to do otherwise.
Not criticizing Skydio at all. Their management is making the correct move. They need to focus on the market that doesn't just want a US made drone, but requires a US made drone. The fact that the margins will be massively higher only adds to the pile of justifications.
To those who don't like what that could mean for the consumer end, put yourself in Skydio's shoes. They're a small firm with limited resources, that thanks to Covid, has suffered near zero revenue for most of the past 6 months.
Skydio can own the US government and military markets. If they land enough of those contracts, they could soon be a buyout target for the large defense contractors. Companies like Lockheed and Northrup tend to have no interest in consumer products.
