Skydio

This help page demonstrates how to upload your organization's Skydio flight logs to AirData. The process is broken up into the four following steps:

  1. Enabling data capture on Skydio
  2. Generating your Skydio API key
  3. Entering your Skydio API key on AirData
  4. Uploading Skydio logs to AirData

1. Enabling data capture on Skydio




Log in to your Skydio account and click on "General" in the "Settings" section. If it is not already enabled, please enable "GPS & Telemetry" under "Data Capture".


enable data capture


2. Generating your Skydio API key




To generate your Skydio API key, go to "Settings" -> "API Tokens" and click on "Generate New Token".


generate new Skydio token




Please provide a name for the token — we recommend naming it "AirData". Be sure to click on "Add" after you enter the name.

Please copy your new API key that appears on the next screen.

3. Entering your Skydio API key on AirData




Log into AirData from a web browser and go to "My Account" -> "Skydio Login", or click here. Next, click on "Add a new Skydio API key".


add new Skydio login on AirData.




From the dropdown, select the default pilot for this API key. Skydio provides the pilot email for each flight via the integration. If the same email address is configured on AirData, the same pilot will be the Pilot-in-Command on AirData. Otherwise, if the email address provided for a flight by Skydio does not exist on AirData, the default pilot selected here will be assigned to flights retrieved using this API key.

Normally, if all configured pilots have the same email addresses on both Skydio and AirData, this setting will not be used, and the correct pilot will be assigned for each flight on AirData based on the information provided by Skydio.

Paste the newly generated API key and click on "Save/Verify".

4. Uploading Skydio logs to AirData

Now that your Skydio API key is on AirData, your Skydio flight logs will now be brought into your AirData account from Skydio Cloud. To upload your flights to Skydio Cloud, follow these steps:

After completing a flight...

  1. Sign in to the Skydio Enterprise app or Enterprise Controller using your Skydio Cloud organization registered user name and password, allowing the flights to transfer from the Skydio 2/2+ Enterprise or Skydio X2 to your controlling device. This may take a few minutes, the exact time varies based on the number and length of flights, and the strength of your wireless network connection.

  2. Open the Skydio Enterprise app on your device (while connected to the internet), and allow the flights to sync with Skydio Cloud, which normally takes a few minutes. The time varies based on the amount of data to upload and the strength of your Internet connection.

  3. Flights will automatically synchronize between Skydio Cloud and AirData when you view your AirData flight list from a web browser for the first time that day. If you view your flight list multiple times in a day, click on "Sync" next to the pilot's API Token to force a sync between Skydio Cloud and AirData. If you do not view your flight list daily, automatic synchronization will occur weekly.

To ensure that your Skydio Cloud account is properly provisioned to sync flight data, please see the Skydio article How to set up AirData UAV Integration.

Sorry for the stupid question, in step 1 where it says "log into your Skydio account" where exactly is that? Is there a url I am not aware of or is this through the app? I am unable to find it. :(

Edit: I have found cloud.skydio.com but that appears to be enterprise only... Is this only available for Enterprise Skydio users and not consumers? Is there a consumer portal?

Thank you!

Hi Manuel, it is our understanding that users need to be on Skydio's Enterprise plan to access their cloud. For more information on Skydio's cloud access, we recommend reaching out to Skydio as they will have the most accurate information.

It appears that the battery information does not come over as it does from DJI. Is there any way to capture the battery SN other than manually entering it?

Hi Kevin, thanks for the comment and it was good to see you and the team in Florida!

You are correct that the SN and other information is missing for the batteries in Skydio flight logs. We have been in touch with Skydio about this and they reported that they are working on this, but we do not have an ETA.

You may notice that all of your Skydio flights are currently being assigned to one "default" Skydio battery. AirData will create a default battery to which we assign the flights that do not have serial numbers. If you wish to manually create a battery profile for each Skydio battery, see this help article: app.airdata.com

If you manually create battery profiles, the flights will continue to be assigned to the default Skydio battery, but you can manually change the associated battery for each flight to reflect which battery was used for the flight.

Please reach out if any further clarification is needed.

Best,
Trevor
