PROS

  • The Sky Viper v950HD records 20 minutes of 720p video on the included 4GB microSD card, and the drone comes with an extra set of rotors.
  • There is a push button for barrel roll stunts and a one-touch panoramic-video capture button for 360 degree capture.
  • The learning curve is relatively easy to master.

CONS

  • At 720p, the drone's video isn't particularly high quality.
  • The spin trim doesn't always correct completely.
  • The construction isn't robust.
When kids look through the holiday wish book this year, they’re looking for drones. The Skyrocket Sky Viper videodrone HD is a moderately priced drone for kids 12 years old and up. There’s a sensitivity control so you can start slow and go from there. With a 720p HD video camera and 200 foot range, this toy isn’t for serious work but for serious fun. The camera is removable which gives a slightly longer flying time and frees the drone to do stunts. Video and stills are stored on an included 4GB microSD card, and the camera supports up to a 32GB card. When recording video, the controller continually beeps to tell you it’s recording--a feature some users welcome and some find irritating.

The one up side, however, is that the battery does take a significantly shorter amount of time to charge than other batteries; to completely charge one battery it takes around 30 minutes or so. Despite the fact that it’s a lightweight and a sensitive little device, it appears to withstand some really hard hits without getting more than a couple of scratches and curved propellers.

With an adjustable camera system, you can expect this drone to be more flexible in terms of camera view control. In fact, you get a bird’s view of the scene of operation with a 360-degree panoramic view functionality.
