Sky Viper Sky Viper DASH Nano Drone Final Thoughts

"And was lost!"

Amazing Sky Viper Camera Drone and pretty decent bundle overall. It holds altitude like a champ and is easy to control. You have to make sure it’s facing the same way as your glove. Didn’t unplug in the middle of the flights. My eyes are not as good as they used to be.
