Compatible with Gannet drones using PixHawk flight controllers 

Important Note: The SkyDroid App is not compatible with Apple phones and may have issues with Oppo phones. We recommend using a budget Android/Samsung phone (around $100), which can connect to the Internet via a hotspot from your main phone.

App Versions

Some phones may not work with certain versions of the SkyDroid App. We provide two versions below; if one doesn’t work, try the other.

  1. Latest Version (Recommended)

  2. Earlier Version (For older phones)

    • Once the drone is powered on (battery connected and quick switch in), telemetry data will be transmitted to the screen.

Using the App

  • Main Screens:
    • Flight Data and Editor are the primary screens for daily use.
    • Other screens are for setup purposes and are not needed for regular operations.
