    Default Skydio - Dji's main competitor...

    ...And isn't it just...

    Only about a year into the project and it's on a fantastic trajectory. Some say, it might be on the up and up.

    Impressive. No IR or thermal?

    Not sure to be honest. But uses a beacon for tracking. Very good it seems.

    I need IR and TI. What is out there with that, and where I can set a route via GPS which it will fly and return to home?

    Might be better to get a normal drone, attach a thermal or IR camera.

    Any of the Mavics can fly a certain pattern and return home.

    Mavic Pro is pricey.

    For the function, I'd look at a 2nd hand Phantom and attach the desired camera.

    The price of the drone will be dwarfed by the cost of the camera setup if looking at IR and thermal
