Engadget Review

Skydio’s second drone dramatically improves upon its predecessor in every way that matters -- price, size and versatility. The AI obstacle avoidance and follow features are improved, the drone is faster and battery life is longer. But, to get the full experience, you’ll need to pay at least $149 more for one of the controllers. The Skydio 2 does still have room for improvement. The video connection could be more robust, charging batteries on the drone is less than ideal, and the camera isn’t as competent as those found on DJI’s drones at the same price.

  • Video link could be more stable
  • Batteries need to be charged on the drone (or with an accessory)
  • While the camera is capable there are fewer pro features
