Skyrocket Launches Sky Viper V2450 GPS Drone


Skyrocket LLC launched the Sky Viper V2450 GPS Streaming Video Drone, the company’s latest drone. The new drone features a return-to-home button, a built-in GPS, and is made with ArduPilot firmware and uses positional awareness for easy navigation.

The new Sky Viper GPS Drone is one of nine different drones to choose from in the Sky Viper line, including the Sky Viper Stunt Drone, which is the number one selling toy drone in the U.S. for August 2017, according to The NPD Group.

In addition to high-tech features, the drone is durable and has user-friendly navigation. Users can navigate the drone with one finger and a single joystick or maintain a stable hover in mid-air with no hands on the controller. Then, with the press of a button, the built-in GPS automatically brings it home.

The Sky Viper GPS Drone uses a network of satellites for positional awareness, pinpointing its exact location in relation to the pilot. The drone also continuously checks its position and self-adjusts as needed, automatically correcting for the effects of wind to maintain its coordinates.

Sky Viper V2450 GPS Streaming Drone is currently available at all major retailers.

The industry is expected to be up approximately 6 percent this year, and I expect this success to carry over to 2016. I saw a higher than usual number of new lines, and interesting expansions of successful products, proving that manufacturers are riding high on the wings of rising sales, leaving them willing and able to take some risks.
