Syma X5C Quadcopter Drone with HD Camera and extra battery

Product Description:

The Syma X5C is rather easy to set up, especially if you happen to be an RC hobbyist. If you lose the instructions and happen to need them for any reason, you can find the Syma X5C user manual online with ease. For two hours, I flew the Syma X5C around my backyard with caution to ensure I didn’t end up losing my new drone. At first, I had a difficult time flying and controlling the drone. I found that the learning curve for flying the Syma X5C drone was very small. Within about 30 minutes, I was flying the drone like an expert.

The X5C in an exclusive blue color way is the newest camera quad released by Syma. Equipped with an HD camera (that can be attached or detached) the X5C blends style, function, and fun along with the reliability and quality that Syma is acclaimed for. Each quad comes with optional prop guard that is easily removable for an enhanced flight experience or attached for protection.

I was quite pleasantly surprised when I flew the Syma X5C drone for the first time. For two hours, I flew the Syma X5C around my backyard with caution to ensure I didn’t end up losing my new drone. I found that the learning curve for flying the Syma X5C drone was very small.

The X5C incorporates a 6-Axis Gyro Stabilization system for flight versatility and flexibility which makes it a perfect indoor/outdoor quad. Designed for simplicity and equipped with powerful features for image capturing and video recording, The X5C is perfect for beginners as an entry way to quads and for experienced pilots to add another quad to their fleet.

Due to the relatively low cost of the Syma X5C drone, I wasn’t expecting to get anything truly amazing or spectacular. Fortunately, I was quite pleasantly surprised when I flew the Syma X5C drone for the first time. I’ve found that the Syma X5C is the best drone on the market for the money. I own far pricier drones that don’t perform nearly as well as the Syma.

Syma X5C Quadcopter Drone Test Flight

Flight test of the $55 Syma X5C Explorers quadcopter with HD video camera: Its specifications are linked here: http://www.banggood.com/Syma-X5C-2_4G-4-Channel-Remote-Control-RC-Quadcopter-p-913827.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3

My thoughts:

1: Camera is OK for a 720p, but it's pointed way too far downward. But this is easily corrected by removing its mounting screws, and hot-gluing a shim in for a better view angle.

2: It really isn't very steady outside of hover in maneuvering flight. Believe that its flight logic could be greatly improved. As it is now, it really has a hard time when a breeze hits it, and can start wobbling erratically with wind or sharp maneuvers.

3: The range is not impressive at all. Because of its wind issue, it can easily be blown out of range. Also when it flies out of range, it will maintain the last control input for a couple seconds before the motors cut out. A manual rebind (quickly moving the throttle down and up) is required when this occurs .

Overall assessment, because of #2 and #3, I foresee a lot of these ending up on neighbors roofs or in the trees. The X5C looks fantastic, and comes with a nice camera but a bad camera view angle. Because of the weight of the camera, It has mediocre flight performance in anything other than hover or a windless day.
