SYMA X5C 2.4 GHZ 4 Channel RC Remote Control UFO Drone Quadcopter

Great drone for starters. The wind when flying was the only setback. On a windy day you may as well fly it inside.

Great drone for starters. Flight time is 7 minutes but purchased a set of bigger batteries to take care of that. Camera is ok, takes 2mp photos. The video(480i) is decent for the price. The wind when flying was the only setback. On a windy day you may as well fly it inside. Overall this product was an excellent buy.

I have flown it for about 2 hours total and one of the motors is not performing enough to give it flight. The wind when flying was the only setback. The wind when flying was the only setback. On a windy day you may as well fly it inside. I ordered extra batteries because its so fun to fly.

This is a fun little quad. I had a great time with it. It’s a little slow with response and the range is not great. I had to modify the remote to get a better range out of it. I have flown it for about 2 hours total and one of the motors is not performing enough to give it flight. I have ordered motors and they are easy to replace if you have any soldering experience. Over all it is fun when it works.

This drone right out of the box flies excellent as a complete beginner. The flight is steady and very responsive to your actions. I cant imagine it handling too many crashes but with flight this good, i cant imagine any crashes. I ordered extra batteries because its so fun to fly. Video was pretty good. Sound is worthless on a drone as all you hear is motors.

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.
