The Goliath 90290 Sky Viper is small, compact and ideal for beginners.
In our mini drone test we have already tested many small drones, the Goliath is really high quality and well worth the money compared to many other models.
What you can really expect from Goliath is this review.
This drone is not a “ready to fly” model, so you will have to assemble it yourself.
But it is especially cheap, despite the fact that it has a lot of technology.
Amateurs will certainly have a lot of fun with it, but it is ill-suited for people who don’t know how to do anything with models.
For assembly, of course, there is a detailed assembly guide, it is easy to understand and not that difficult, assembly can indeed be done by beginners in the field.
Size, design and weight
The assembled Sky Viper STEM drone makes a pretty good impression.
With a weight of only about 75 grams, the whole mini quadcopter is quite simple but thoughtful.
The propeller blades and cockpit are partially painted in a poisonous green, the rest is made of black plastic. Each rotor has a rotor guard, and the rotors themselves are made of elastic material, so they will not be damaged in the event of an accident.
The four small electric motors are 7.0 mm in diameter and 20 mm high. Despite their small size, they are extremely powerful and propel the Goliath 90290 Sky Viper Stem drone to 41 kilometers per hour. There is a small landing pad under each engine.
Camera not available
Unfortunately, there is no camera for this model and therefore no live FPV image transmission. The only interesting features are the mode for beginners and professionals, as well as the ability to automatically take off and land the drone.
Battery, range and flight time
A 650 mAh LiPo battery is installed, operating at an operating voltage of 3.7 volts. This gives you a flight time of 6 to 9 minutes, depending on which flying style you are demonstrating. During particularly fast maneuvers and high loads on the electric motors, the likelihood of battery discharge increases. However, you can also easily replace the flight battery and thereby significantly increase the flight time.
The real plus is the maximum range, because the mini drone is around 180 meters, which is damn long and not typical for such a small quadcopter!
Thanks to its advanced sensors, the drone has a hover mode or beginner mode in which the Sky Viper is automatically held in the air as soon as you release the control sticks.
Stunts such as somersaults, somersaults, or loops can also be performed with the push of a button, but you can also switch to manual mode when the drone is no longer in control but can be freely controlled. If you have one, you can even let the Goliath 90290 fly upside down.
