A multirotor drone is a multiple propeller, vertical lift drone. These drones are more maneuverable due to their flight profile, being able to fly much closer to buildings and other obstacles. Multi-rotor drones like the Skydio R1 also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The Skydio R1 falls within an 'average' speed of drones with a max speed of around 40.2 km/h. If you're a beginner or even an intermediate drone user, than this should still be plenty. if you're looking for something a bit faster however, it'd be best to keep looking.
With a range that falls under the 1km mark at 0.1 km, it's definitely on the lower side of drones. This will be plenty for an occasional, line of sight flight drone, particularly with toys, but if you're looking to fly something with a little more range than this drone definitely isn't for you.
The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 16 min. This flight time will be plenty of the average user, and should give you more than enough time between charges. You can always bring an extra battery to swap out between flights, or just a battery pack to charge it up as you go should you need a little more flight time.
