Haha - its a cool drone for sure. I've had some flyaway scares but its always come back. I have 3 batteries - they charge slow. I do have a fast USB charger but haven't tried it yet in the General.Oh, gads, now you've gone and done it...gonna have to have one. The autonomous flight looks interesting and the Controller, so wife, er BOSS, as something to tinker with. She's finally learning Avenza maps and enjoying that.
A question, do you have a couple batteries you carry along? Can you charge batteries in the General? Say USB charger?
I'll do more digging tomorrow. TBI impairments, of them, makes vision in my one eye get fuzzy at the end of the day.
At least it's only about $1500, I've spent a lot more on the General!!
Controlling the drone is largely automated so I can do both. It uses visual motion tracking and GPS to follow, and has multiple sensors to avoid obstacles. Its new technology so there are some hiccups...Nice video, who's flying the drone if your driving the General?
I've been working with Skydio to troubleshoot some issues. Generally, if you use the phone app it follows visually and over wifi. If you use the beacon it follows with GPS, if you use both it can follow with both. But there's a lot more to it than this.chad...here we go...questions...
In autonomous flight...how does the Skydio 2 figure out how to follow you? By connecting to the hand held beacon?
Is it possible to save, like a waypoint, and tell the Skydio 2 to land there before the battery crashes?
What accuracy can you get in surveying with the Skydio 2?
Ever tried the Controller?
Thanks very much,
