Sky Drone Mk1

  • $9,500.00 USD

Lead time: 3 weeks.

Ready-to-Fly 4G/5G Connected Drone

Sky Drone Mk1 is the first Ready-to-Fly (RTF) drone that is exclusively 4G/5G connected. The drone is being controlled via a ground control station like Mission Planner or QGroundControl.


Made for BVLOS

Sky Drone Mk1 has been built for true BVLOS flight operations. No traditional radio controller is needed for takeoff, landing and in-flight control. All drone commands are sent via 4G/5G connection from the ground control station to the drone and vice versa.

SIM Card and Mobile Carrier Requirement

For Sky Drone Mk1 to be able to communicate with the ground control station, the customer needs to obtain a data-enabled SIM card from his/her mobile network carrier. As stated above, Sky Drone Mk1 supports a variety of 4G and 5G frequency bands, which are used across the world in all countries. Customers are still recommended to double-check with their mobile network carrier the frequency support in the areas Sky Drone Mk1 is planned to be deployed at.

In short: All the customer needs besides the Sky Drone Mk1, is a data-enabled SIM card.

Country Availability & Shipping
