This is an awesome drone. It has great functions found in drones costing hundreds more. You can set way points and with working GPS and ground scan, confident hovering/ flying is a snap ! I can't wait to see how they can top this one!

Customer reviews & ratings
sky viper "Journey" drone...
The guards were the only part of the drone that broke. Other than those it was awesome. Battery lasts a long time. The remote seems to eat the power though.
Camera feed looks like your under water Flight is good
Battery Time Is Minimal
The drone itself is very nice, with a number of features, but the battery life is ridiculous. From the first time out, the maximum flying time my grandson has bee able to get from it, is 10 minutes. and twice, it went down in obscure areas before that 10 minute time frame. This is sad. I have emailed the company about it, but got no response.
Regretting my purchase
I will be taking mine back since after about 20 feet the controller disconnects and the drone doesn't autopilot to home it just keeps drifting away further. I have to run after it until the controller reconnects about 10 feet from it. Not very happy. It doesn't lock in place with gps. This drone is by far the hardest flying drone I've ever used. The video quality isn't good at all.
First and last drone.
For $79 it's about worth that. First drone I've ever owned. It drifts all over the place and can't control it. The auto pilot works like this, it beeps and then flies into the trees From the center of a 2 acre field. Press the power button to turn off the propellers and when it hit the ground the SD card fell out. Camera is horrible and having an SD card and it doesn't really help anyway. Customer service was shoddy at best and then wanted to send me a part that I Wouldn't possibly replace, the whole top of it, And wanted me to pay shipping and handling. Thankfully Walmart took it back. And I got another one to give it another try. This one did the same thing. Droning days concluded after 20 minutes of flying it.
awful, sold used broken product as new
item arrived missing parts and had clearly been used. seller didn't even bother repackaging it properly, just tossed it in the box, taped it up and sent it to me. absolutely terrible, I am returning it immediately. In the photos you can see chlorophyll on the rotors where someone clearly crashed into a tree/bush, the controller was grimey, everything was just floating around in the box unsecured, battery was still in the drone from it's previous owner, instruction manual haphazardly thrown in there, USB charger completely missing. I took these pictures within 5 minutes of fedex delivering the package.
Worked fine for 2 days, then would not do anything after that. Had New batteries in the remote and fully charged battery in the aircraft.
I got the order on time easy put together read all the instructions even test flight it before I downloaded the app to put on my phone what do the sequence and now it don't work it don't fly it don't do nothing so what do I do now call Walmart, want to take a back not very happy with it
Wouldn't buy this "toy".
This drone was a gift. Not first drone, either. It flew about three times and then a motor gave out, which sent it into a tree about five acres over. Contacted the maker, who wanted a "video" of what was wrong, along with a receipt. LOUSY consumer help and protection to replace parts that probably cost a buck. I will NOT buy one of these again. I can only hope that the gift giver will tell me where she bought it and they honor SOMETHING, or I will just part it out and use it as "fetch" for my Lab Retriever. Not much good for anything else. Incidently- I experienced the same problems most everyone else did including excessive vibration from an otherwise okay camera, but nonetheless pretty unwatchable vids. Lousy design and really cruddy support. Sorry I pulled it out of the package.
