Capture Every Moment of Action from the Air with Vivitar’s All New Follow Me Drone, Now Available in Walmart Stores
Vivitar, a legacy family brand of fun and affordable tech products, is releasing its all-new Follow Me Drone - a quadcopter drone with a built in 360 camera, to Walmart retail locations across the country. With its Follow Me function and camera, the drone can be synced to use its camera to follow your motion, offering 360-degree views of all the action. At an affordable price point of $179.99, Vivitar is making it easier than ever to own an automated drone for sporting events and other activities.
The Follow Me Drone features a built in Dual GPS Module to help keep it locked in on the controller below while filming from the air. Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to take to the sky and control the camera and drone via the Smartphone app (iOS and Android). Getting the drone in the air is not a problem with the auto takeoff and landing function, making it easy for first timers to fly it. With the Follow Me function, the drone can track the user’s every move while it follows behind at a safe distance. With GPS LOCK hover mode, the 16.1 megapixel camera can take beautiful pictures and video without worry of drifting off location, capturing the perfect aerial shot. With a high-quality video feed and storage, the Follow Me Drone can be used for anything from capturing snowboard tricks to producing fun home movies.

This drone offers technology found in much more expensive models, giving a wide range of consumers the opportunity to lift off and capture incredible footage.”
