Takes some TLC, but well worth it!
I believe the video quality is very good and of the 4 drones I own, this one does an excellent job of responding to controls, even in a moderate breeze and not just flying away. However, I agree with other reviews it is difficult to get to know and requires occasional calibration which you can do within the app. Also, I had some help from a customer service rep from Sky Viper who told me to restart your drone (if it won't respond to remote) pull left throttle down and to the right while holding down the power button. This drone requires some TLC but it is worth it in enjoyable flying once you get it set up.

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.

Sky Viper Journey Pro - Very Good Value

The Sky Viper Journey Pro drone has performed admirably. In absolutely still air the GPS position hold works very well, as does the altitude hold. The one touch return function also works well, if a bit sedately. Auto Land also works well, landing the drone very gently. The only comments I would make is that the drone does not have an On/Off switch - it powers on the moment the battery is connected - and there is no method of trimming the drone unless the wifi app is enabled. The Launch button is a bit misleading: the drone will not lift off if this button is pressed but the rotors will spin. All that needs to be done then is to advance the throttle. These are minor criticisms, to be sure, and, overall, this is a well engineered drone and a pleasure to fly

Satisfied

I really like this drone. Flying takes practice but isnt completely difficult. Has features that bring it home and also follow me. Only prob is that the battery life doesnt last super long but the battery is small and for the work it does and price, i feel like it was still worth it. Doesnt take long to charge either. Seems durable bc its taken a few crash landings.

RalphS.

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.

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.

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.

Don't waste your time

Before this one I had bought one that was on sale broken in the box (drive gear missing teeth) before this and the free replacement parts process is a joke. Add s

Garbage

Flew about 14 times, 1st time I just told it to launch and it shot off and hit things in my Garage. Recalibrated with their software and it did get better. Randomly it would go up and shoot off in some untold direction. Home button would not recover and wound up chasing it. Last time it launched with full battery, it shot itself strait over a lake I was 30 feet from without commanding it too. Then I commanded home over and over, it started to go down and I commanded up with no response. Drone smashed itself into the water about 200 feet from launch "didn't even try to land" I did get it back with a fishermans help. Sent the information from the flight info to skyviper, They were very nice but basically said its on me. Last skyviper product I ever purchase. First 1 star review I have ever given in my life.

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
