The new and improved Skydio 2+ is tantalisingly close to being the ideal drone

Some want to capture grandiose cinematic works, while others prefer to see fast-paced action.

Greater battery capacity and two pop-up antennas

These two problems are more fully addressed by the Skydio 2+ hardware update.

The two hardware updates are tiny but helpful, and Skydio is now only selling the 2+.

4K video may be captured with the 1/2.3 inch sensor at 60 frames per second.

The Skydio 2 series employs six onboard navigation cameras to create a real-time 3D model of its surroundings rather than searching for obstacles to avoid.

Then, it makes use of this knowledge and some AI skills to find its way through environments that are difficult for other drones to manoeuvre through.
