Skydio makes it easier to hand-launch Skydio 2/2+ drones
Skydio has released a new software update for the Skydio 2/2+ drones. A cool new feature that’s dropping with this update is the ability to hand-launch the drone with just four quick taps on the battery button.
Skydio says that the new update will be released over the course of one week, but iOS users can get it in advance of the notification by visiting the Apple App Store. Here’s more on the new Quick Launch feature that makes it easier to hand-launch a Skydio 2/2+ drone…
Quick Launch allows you to use the battery power button to hand-launch your Skydio 2/2+ so that you do not have to balance the controller in one hand and your drone in the other. To initiate a Quick Launch, select the Device settings menu, then go to the Drone tab and scroll down to Quick Launch to toggle it on.
After this, once you select Fly Now, you will only need to press the battery power button four times to initiate the launch. Release as the propellers begin to spin up…
