Sky Viper V950HD Quadcopter Review
Axis Flying Kolas 6: foldable 6

Introduction

Quad­copter Sky Viper V950HD is one of the first prod­ucts of the Amer­i­can com­pa­ny Sky­Rock­et Toys. The com­pa­ny is a lead­ing devel­op­er and mar­keter of a wide range of con­sumer prod­ucts includ­ing toys, cycling acces­sories and sport­ing goods. The devel­op­er’s offices are locat­ed in Los Ange­les, Hong Kong and Chi­na.

Toys from Sky­rock­et Toys have earned numer­ous awards such as Toy of the Year in the cat­e­go­ry of inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts. Despite the fact that the devel­op­er is rel­a­tive­ly new in the field of house­hold UAVs, their drones have become very pop­u­lar. Sky Viper V950HD is one of the most pur­chased and cheap­est quad­copters. It has good flight char­ac­ter­is­tics, and also, through the pres­ence of an onboard cam­era, is able to record video in 720p qual­i­ty.

Motors

On the Sky Viper V950HD quad­copter, it is equipped with col­lec­tor motors with torque trans­mis­sion through a gear­box. The devel­op­er does not spec­i­fy infor­ma­tion about the per­for­mance of the motors. The poten­tial of the pow­er plant is suf­fi­cient to per­form the tasks.

Camera

The Sky Viper V950HD has an HD cam­era with a view­ing angle of 130º. Pro­vides video shoot­ing in res­o­lu­tion: 1280 × 720p at 15 fps, as well as pho­tos in res­o­lu­tion: 1MP. Pho­to qual­i­ty is below aver­age. The video mode, on the con­trary, deserves respect in the UAV niche.

Note that the best shoot­ing result is achieved in good light, the less light, the worse the video qual­i­ty.

Food

Sky Viper V950HD is equipped with a 3.7V 650mAh lithi­um poly­mer bat­tery. In prac­tice, he pro­vid­ed an aver­age flight time of 10 min­utes. The bat­tery is charged using the includ­ed charg­er. Charg­ing time is 30 min­utes.

Control

Sky Viper V950HD is equipped with 6‑channel con­trol equip­ment oper­at­ing at a fre­quen­cy of 2.4GHz. In prac­tice, in a zone free from inter­fer­ence, it pro­vides the dis­tance of removal declared in the spec­i­fi­ca­tion up to 60 meters. Pow­er is sup­plied from 4 × 1.5V AAA (pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly).

Test Drive

In prac­tice, the Sky Viper V950HD showed flight dynam­ics that are dis­tinc­tive for the niche occu­pied by the UAV, it is wind-resis­tant, pre­dictable in con­trol thanks to the present 6‑axis gyro­scope. Note the per­for­mance of bar­rels and flips. It has 3 dif­fer­ent activ­i­ty modes, allow­ing the pilot to smooth­ly move from sim­ple to com­plex.
