Is it time for Dji to partner up with AMD to provide the cpu and gpu required for the full autonomy like skydio has? We should think so.

But this AMD partnership as a result effectively  will make all current and existing dji drones obsolete as well due to the leap in autonomy

I'd like to see the AMD badge on the next gen dji drones such as phantom 5, inspire 3, mavic 3.

Also for dji to regain control of the autonomy division of the market. This will eliminate skydio totally.

I have the Skydio on order. However, DJI drones such as my M2P still have plenty to offer over what a Skydio can do.

If an M3P (or Skydio3) can incorporate the best of both worlds that would be good.

As is ...

Skydio has the advantage of the USA's Governments current 'angst' of anything chinese, mostly because of Frumps' drive to further american goods.

Outside the US my guess will be that when (not if) DJI implements more AI they will continue to dominate. I could even see them taking over Skydio as an independent arm to get around any trade sanctions. Skydio are tiny. They likely will receive Gouvernment help though in the interim.

Nvidia and Amd processors are tech giants with decades of development and their tech produce are highly efficient at the top of the chain.. making them the only feasible options in terms of performance and cost.

Dji would not be able to match the nvidia processor on their own.. nvidia and amd make the best processors with development fundings worth more than dji itself as a whole.

Skydio poses a massive risk to Dji because it's very easy for skydio to slab and adapt to pro cameras and make the same class drones like small ones as well. They are not far from doing so as their revenues are going up enormously.

The latest AMD processors are basically ahead of intel and nvidia now. Dji must go with AMD.

If Dji will be ignorant to innovate on autonomy then it will not be a surprise if skydio takes over the market's top spot in 3-5 years time.
Remember skydio can imitate much better anything Dji does because of nvidia processors and enormous incoming revenues.

What a Skydio 2.0 can do is incredible.
Forget about "follow me" or "active track"
Look in the following video, how AI search for a way to follow or roundabout ways to follow again.

The m2p and Skydio 2 were created for different purposes. Skydio is made for action sports in adventure,  people who are on snowboards or mountain bikes and are unable to hold a remote. M2p is for photographers and film makers who have the ability to stand or sit and fly their drone and take strategic footage.  They are both great for what they were designed for.

I would disagree on them having different purposes. Both skydio and dji are for aerial photography and videography, same way drones mean autonomous.

Skydio drone camera are made for photographers as well, and if the camera is not very good now, then they are able to put just as good cameras on their next drones.

Follow and active tracking is a big part of aerial photography and drone autonomy, it allows the pilot to focus on gimbal control. And avoiding crash and interuptions as well.
This is why Dji also has the features but they don't work well enough in real follow and active track situations.

I disagree. Does a DJI inspire have active track as good as the Skydio? Last time I checked  inspire is used in Hollywood, and Skydio will never be used in Hollywood . It is not a filmmaking flying camera. It is an action flying camera . Mavic 2 pro and Skydio are for 2 completely different  lifestyles. Sure you could do both with both. That can be said about anything

Skydio will be the new hollywood film maker whenever they want to slab on the 4/3rds camera on their next drones. That's not far away because skydio's revenues are on the rise towards being able to produce professional systems
The inspire requires 2 pilots for action shots and despite having 2 pilots, the inspire still cannot do aerial action shots for obstacles and tight spaces and closeup aerial action shots   
Again not possible without a powerful processor. But hey maybe if you let the world champion pilots do the job then why not

If Dji will go with amd processors, they'll have a very good autonomy for aerial action shots but that also means it would be the end of the existing dji drones.

Would love to see the p5 i3 next gen drones with levels of autonomy like skydio

hopefully filmmakers will want to have some artistic control over there shots. Rather than it be automated with a drone. Pretty sure Skydio just through a bunch of cameras around their drone, and used a decent processor. It’s not hard. My roomba  robot vacuum does it.

Skydio looks like a toy. DJI drones look like a tool. Go look around on the forum. Most users with high end drones want camera quality with safety features. M2p delivers here . You do not have a m2p. Believe it or not it has pretty great active track. I would rather have a processor dedicated to 4K 60 FPS and 8k 30 FPS with a 1 inch or larger sender on p5 or m3p  than a bunch of  sensing  cameras draining the battery life.

Skydio allows controller stick input while the automation is on going. So it's not an issue how the film maker wants to do the shot.
For dji however, not possible without a world champion pilot to do the close up aerial action shots on tight obstacles

As said it's going to be easy for skydio to slab on the good cameras as their revenues rise over time also nvidia and amd processors are efficient even in power consumption. Old or slow and undeveloped processors even consumes more power.
Amd's nano chips are even lighter than nvidias, easier to cool as well.

In terms of design only the phantom and inspire series look real nice tools, the rest are generic though.

What makes you think a company can just slab on a camera? That’s one of the most important parts?  Not all nvredia processors are created equal. Skydio is using a niche to get a foothold in the drone industry.  They clung to the one area DJI has not decided to put extreme focus on... obviously it has worked for dji. Skydio might be able to compete , which would be awesome. But as of right now, they fail in comparison to DJI  . If DJI wanted a drone with 100 cameras and an Intel, nvedia, or snapdragon processor, I am sure they have the resources . They work with Microsoft developers On certain  projects even, now hold. Majority stake in hassleblad. Sorry, Skydio is just not impressive at all right now.

I respect your opinion but the tables are turnin once skydio sells international.

BTW so far all and I mean all I’ve seen so far from skydio is the ability to show someone running skateboarding biking down a hill, I think people will think this is very  boring after a while .

No, I disagree, Skydio with remote controller will have the the best OA along with the ability to fly where ever you want. Case in point see this video.

Skydio flight with remote controller.

I think to be fair here, skydio have shipped out their first batch of drones, none were sent out with RC (why) ?
When dji release a drone with software missing, we see users here on this forum telling us the sky is falling in, the service is crap, the drone is only half a drone, typical Chinese tardiness.

Yet we have skydio who send out there drone LATE and with no remote control.

I have seen that video, it’s the only video I have seen with user using RC and I wonder why, two weeks ago skydio told beta testers NOT to do any distance testing WHY , you say you can fly anywhere hopefully you can, but with no remotes flights on skydio will go nowhere, except to track people on skateboards.

I remember the first skydio , it also could go anywhere, but unfortunately it couldn’t get out because it kept getting stuck .

I hope skydio is a success , but so far it has a long way to go and it’s all uphill right now .

You are forgetting that DJI is a multi-billion dollar company that has released many drones in its history, therefore, a higher standard is expected. While Skydio 2 as their second drone release Skydio is still an upstart company that has something good on their hands, and as such, people will give them more slack.

"Yet we have skydio who send out there drone LATE and with no remote control."

I think this is cause by Skydio stubbornly insisting all their products are built inhouse, by hand. I agree with you why there so few videos with remote control.

I’m sorry I beg to differ, if a company designs a drone and as you said a second drone and fails to ship it with a crucial piece of hardware is unforgivable and doesn’t deserve anyone’s sympathy, remember they said the would release a RC for first drone and it never materialized, and that drone cost 2.5k and now is obsolete, it’s my thinking that they are not treated the same as dji is more to do with them being from the US .

I agree.  If it DJI had a much better functioning Active Track, much more people would be using it, myself included.  By the way, I mistakenly clicked on the downvote button for your comment, the system wouldn't let me undo it.
