January 27th, 2023: Click here for the latest update on Skydio's compliance with FAA Remote ID Requirements.


July 12, 2022 update: Skydio consumer and enterprise drones will be Remote ID compliant by the required FAA deadlines (September 2022 for manufacturers, and September 2023 for operators). Skydio will enable Standard Remote ID compliance through software updates. No hardware modifications will be required. That applies to Skydio 2, Skydio 2+, and Skydio X2E.


For background, the Remote ID rule contains two key deadlines. First, manufacturers must begin making Remote ID compliant drones by September 2022. Second, operators must begin using Remote ID compliant products by September 2023, unless flying in an FAA-recognized identification area (a new term that refers to recreational flying sites). Skydio will comply with both deadlines.


If you are registering a new (or old) Skydio drone with the FAA, the registration portal will ask “Does your drone broadcast Remote ID information?” Check “no” for now because this capability is not yet enabled (the requirement does not go into effect for drone operators until September 2023). Skydio drones will be capable of broadcasting Remote ID information by the September 2022 deadline for drone manufacturers.

Skydio defense products (the X2D series) are intended to be offline and may not be Remote ID compliant. The Remote ID rule expressly exempts drones operated by the United States military.
