Conduct Your Own Aerial Photoshoot with Vivitar’s All New AeroView GPS Video Drone, Now Available in Walmart Stores

Vivitar, a legacy family brand of fun and affordable tech products, is releasing the all-new Aeroview GPS Video Drone - a quadcopter drone with a built in camera, in Walmart retail locations across the country. The Aeroview GPS Video Drone comes standard with the popular follow me function along with a full HD camera with a live video feed and real time transmission. This new drone can be synced with Vivitar’s free app to use its camera to follow your motion, and also offers an articulating wide angle lens to show views of all the action.

The auto trim function keeps the drone stable to ensure that every flight goes as smoothly as possible, making it easy for even a first time user to capture professional grade footage. One key return and auto hover are convenient features that lower the learning curve of mastering the flight controls. Simply press the return key and the drone will return to where it took off without any additional input. With the follow me function via the app, the drone can track the user’s every move while it follows behind at a safe distance. The HD camera allows users to transmit video in real time up to 1000 feet away from the remote.

“There’s no retailer we’d rather partner with for the release of our cutting edge video drone than Walmart, the largest in the world” said Edward Cohen, Vice President, Vivitar Technology Division. “This is our most compact and affordable drone yet, proving once again, Vivitar strives to make top of the line technology readily available for the everyday consumer. This drone is ideal for anyone interested in drone flying and photography, and will suit first time flyers and veteran’s filming needs.”
