I wanted to register my new Skydio today. It has two numbers. An FCC ID number and an IC ID number. Where can I find the craft's Serial Number, or is it one of these. Please don't answer if you are guessing.

The SD2 came with a tag attached to it, I can't remember if it was tied to the drone or the case. It's got a barcode number and also a serial number.

You are correct. I found the tag after reading your post. It presented me with more numbers. I didn't want to believe you because the number on the tag was the same as the WIFI number. I brought all of the numbers to SKYDIO support. I showed them all to SKYDIO support person John via chat session. He confirmed the WIFI number is the serial number. I'm glad I asked because that wasn't the number I would have bet my cookies on.

Anyone know how easy it is to change a a drones WiFi number?

If its easy and the serial number is the same as the WiFi number that means serial numbers tell you nothing about when an S2 was made or if someone else previously owned the drone.

IMO, they aren't the bad guys here, any manufacturer aside from a few can easily change their product serialization, usually just a matter of changing a sticker. This drone is no different. If they were inclined to resell a used one as new you'd never know since they have access to all the parts to make it look new again. Sometimes we just have to trust the company you buy products from. I kinda understand where you're coming from though, seems like being dishonest in business and government is getting allot of attention these days.

There are no bad guys out there just good guys that are little less honest than completely truthful. <GRIN>

If the S2's serial numbers can easily be changed (by just changing its WiFi password) a serial number loses all its value.

The S2 is a product that is worlds ahead of its nearest competition but there's also a reason the old Russian proverb that says "Trust but verify" has been around a very long time.

P.S. If there are any software engineers out there, how easy is it to alter a WiFi password?
