Your Skydio 2 is almost ready to ship! Ah… What a nice way to start the weekend! I (and many other lucky drone enthusiasts) just received an email from Skydio informing us that the first batch of Skydio 2 drones is being prepared to ship out. We’re super excited to get our hands on the second generation of fully autonomous flying drones from the American drone manufacturer. Here’s the email that Skydio just sent out.

Your Skydio 2 is almost ready to ship!

You’re getting this email because you’re about to be one of the first people in the world to get your hands on Skydio 2. This is an incredibly exciting time for us (and our calibration robot) and we hope you’re excited too!

Completing your purchase… Next week you’ll get an email from us stating that your Skydio 2 is ready, at which point you’ll have 10 days to follow the link and complete the order. You’ll have the option to add a variety of accessories to your order before checking out.

Shipping estimates… Drones are expected to ship within a week of completed purchase. Most accessories will ship with your Skydio 2, and those that don’t will have estimated ship dates shown in our online store which goes live next week. Delayed accessory shipments will go out in the order that they are purchased, so we recommend buying everything that you know you want as part of the order completion process.
