The last time I heard that Skydio 2’s are not recommended for flying over Water or they have a caution about it flying over Water!Skydio 2 is one of the better FollowMe drones.
Yes, trying to "sense" water with electronics is a tricky thing....The last time I heard that Skydio 2’s are not recommended for flying over Water or they have a caution about it flying over Water!
Jesus!!! Didn't know this!!!! Can you intervene and ascend? Why would this happen / why would the drone do this?Yes, trying to "sense" water with electronics is a tricky thing....
Even the DJI family has some issues flying low over the water. You can be flying (or hovering) happily of the water, and then you sometimes just slowly start to decend...
My guess is to be at least 1.5 to 2 times the sensor range above the surface of the water...
WOW!!!! This is incredible!!!!!! Don't think they're available in the UK?Check out Skydio's promo vid, and then check the vids on youtube for the Skydio.
This U.S. built drone has a way more robust follow me mode.
And, it also has a more robust object avoidance system.

Ah, I did not know this. I thought it followed the pilot / whoever it was 'told' to?Follow me mode with mavics means that the drone will follow the remotes signal wherever it goes..
That means your surfer would have to carry the remote which is not a good idea since it
Would highly likely get soaked…
Skydio has a small potable device to carry which makes this much easier..
active track “ paints” the subject but with my experience with mavics that can be interrupted by another object pretty easily..
The skydio is much better on locking on “subject”.
Idk about your drone but my mp1 will “follow” the remote or active track will “paint” the subject and either follow that subject or I can select the mode where it still “paints” the subject but stays stationary in the air and only the camera follows subjectI guess a mini 2 just hovering would, technically, capture him surfing, it's just a matter of how far away it would be from the action.
I have a Skydio 2 and use it over water all the time. The warnings about water are particularly about flat water and I haven't had a hint of a worried moment from a false reading when I have flown over liquid.Hi all,
I have a friend who surfs and was asking me what drones are available to him that would follow him out, video him surfing, and back. I explained that my mini 2 doesn't have this facility so thought I should ask the experts......
