The best autonomous drone just got better

The Skydio 2 feels like the stuff of dreams – a drone that can fly itself, follow you around without crashing into trees.

    i feel like these can be some sort of security device. follow you trekking in the woods and beam for help if you get lost. or follow your kid if they are walking out unaccompanied and needed some sort of surveillance

    Video quality is a bit of problem, no gimbal, low and unswappable battery life, no fold… And much more unstable you can see on 04:20, I like competition but don't blame them, R&D Budget 1/100 of it bigger competitor, dispite much higher price.
