Sure we are all outraged by the NSA spying on us…but aren’t we just a little jealous too?  I mean the NSA has all these super cool tech toys – drones, spy cameras, etc.  Now you and the kids can operate your own family version of the NSA with the Sky Viper Camera Drone from Skyrocket Toys!

The Sky Viper Camera Drone is a remote control quadcopter that can do stunts and record video and photos with its built in camera.

A Whole Lot of Quadcopter, For A Tiny Sum of Cash

We normally don’t focus on price when we review a product, but the low retail price ($79.99) of the Sky Viper Camera Drone is so impressive, it needs to be discussed.  For under $80 you are getting…

  • 2.4Ghz Remote with 200 Foot Range
  • 6-axis Gyro Stability For Smooth And Easy Flying
  • Built in Camera That Holds 30 Minutes of Video or 25,000 Photos
  • Shoot Video at 640 x 480
  • The Ability to Do Stunts With The Press of a Button
  • 3 Different Levels of Flight Sensitivity Controls
  • A Large, 16″ Carbon Fiber Frame Drone
  • Can Be Flown Indoors or Outdoors

The Sky Viper Camera Drone is available exclusively from Toys R Us.

The One Negative – Short Fly Time When Shooting Video

We had a blast flying the Sky Viper Camera Drone.  It is easy to control, very stable and the ability to do flips and barrel rolls with the push of a button is fantastic.  It was also great to fly over our house and be able to shoot pretty impressive video from 100 feet up.  In fact it was so fun to fly and record video that we really got bummed when we had to take a break after about 3 minutes of flying!

If you are recording video and flying you only get about 3-4 minutes of fly time.  With the camera off, you do get more like 6-8 minutes of fly time, but it is called the Camera Drone…so you want to use the camera!  Recharge time was only about 20-30 minutes, so that is not bad – but just unfortunate the fly time is so short on one charge.

The Sky Viper Camera Drone Will Keep Kids Entertained

The secret to success with any toy is – can it keep the kids entertained?  If the answer to this question is yes, you have a successful toy.  The Sky Viper Camera Drone has enough features (stunts, stability and a camera) to keep the kids highly entertained! Parents will love two key features of the Sky Viper Camera Drone – the durability and pricing.  At $79.99 you can get your son or daughter started on their career as an aerial videographer…or a spy.
