Sky Viper Pro Journey Drone (from Skyrocket)
Another Toy Insider Top Tech 12 from innovator Skyrocket The Sky Viper Auto-Pilot is programmed to keep your drone in the air and flying steadily, even if you have no previous experience flying a drone. It handles all the basics of flight for you, so you can skip the learning part and go straight to flying.
The GPS Advantage
AutoPilot Stage 2 uses satellites to pinpoint your drone’s position in space, just like your smartphone uses GPS to track its position. Take your hands off of the controller and your drone comes to a complete stop in mid-air. Using GPS, Auto-Pilot continuously confirms its position and self-corrects if it starts to drift. It even compensates for external factors such as wind.
GPS knows where you took off and your drones current location at all times during flight. With a simple press of a button, you can tell your drone to fly itself back to its original launch point without any further input. Have you ever lost a drone? If your drone loses signal with the controller or if its battery level is dropping too low, Auto-Pilot will override the control and your drone will automatically fly itself back to home!
Launch into a hover then activate Follow Me Mode to make your drone autonomously follow you wherever you go … No hands on the controller. What a fun way to fly and keep your focus on the live stream. Wirelessly Download High-Quality 720p You can also record high-quality video directly to an onboard Micro SD card (sold separately). After your flight, the video can be transferred to your phone through Wi-Fi for viewing without any resolution loss.
