Visit Skydio X2 GPS Night Flight for more information about the calibration methods.

Connection Status

You can now view the strength of the signal connection between the controlling device and your Skydio X2E. Select the Connection Status icon to display the connected drone status, signal strength, GPS quality, and satellite count.


Button Mapping for Skydio Enterprise Controller

Skydio Enterprise Controller buttons L2 and R2 are now programmable. Select from:

  • Toggle Map
  • Toggle Camera thermal or color
  • Close Obstacle Avoidance
  • Minimal Obstacle Avoidance
  • Disabled Obstacle Avoidance
  • No Function



KeyFrame Improvements

When playing back a KeyFrame sequence, you can now choose to have Skydio prioritize Accuracy or Speed.

  • Accuracy: Skydio may dynamically slow down around sharp turns. Helps to avoid cutting corners to maintain your drone’s position along the KeyFrame path
  • Speed: Your drone may fly off the KeyFrame path to maintain a steady speed

The maximum KeyFrame speed for Skydio X2 remains at 11 mph (5 m/s)


Dynamic Channel Selection

When set to auto, your Skydio X2E will automatically monitor signal interference and move to a clearer channel to improve wireless transmission signal quality during flight.

Save thermal photos

You now have the ability to choose whether or not you save thermal photos when a color photo is captured on your Skydio X2E Color/Thermal.


This does not affect the Thermal PiP display

New VehicleName in Photo EXIF Data

Easily differentiate between the Skydio X2 Color and Skydio X2 Color/Thermal camera models with updated naming in the embedded EXIF/XMP image data.

  • Skydio X2 Color the VehicleName is displayed as X2 Wide
  • Skydio X2 Color/Thermal the VehicleName is displayed as X2 Narrow

Emergency Flight Termination

When flying with the Enterprise Controller you will now have the option to terminate your flight in the event of an extreme emergency. Press and hold the Land and Return buttons on the controller for three seconds while in flight to immediately stop your drone's motors.

WARNING: Terminating a flight will cause your drone to crash. This will void your warranty and may result in injury or damage. Use only in extreme situations.
