Update The American-made Skydio 2 has been, up to know, one of the best drones that you couldn't buy. At last we have the news that the self-flying drone is back in production in its California factory after the long Coronavirus lockdown – and that means that you can now order one (although the company admits it will take them three months to get through previous back orders).

But at the same time, Skydio also tells us that since the $999 drone was originally announced last year (see below), it has made major updates to the software.
