Syma X8HG 8.0 MP HD Camera Drone

When all the parts were removed, I turned to the manual for installation instructions. I am an enigma in that I like to read instruction manuals. I can often figure out the tech without them, but I also find additional features by reviewing the included instructions. I separated the individual components and removed the bagged components. The manual is a little disjointed with various installation instructions throughout the book. The English appears to be well written, there are some typographical errors. It is a good manual. I started by charging the battery as outlined on page I5. It is unfortunate that it takes 200 minutes to charge the 2000mAh LiPo battery. This is a long time to wait for the fun of flying the drone. To charge the device, place the A type plug into the wall, place the AC adapter into the charger and then place the small three position plug to the output end of the charger. You will notice a single red LED without the battery plugged into the charger. You will also notice a Green LED when you plug the battery in. I completely charged the battery, prior to using this, for the entire 200 minutes. At that point, the LED extinguished.

The drone is the largest component of the package, followed by the controller. You will also notice the charger, the AC power adaptor in a small box, the plastic wrapped HD camera with pre-installed 4GB MicroSD card, the 2000 mAh LiPo battery, two sets of four rotors, two sets of two legs (beneath the rotors), four rotor guards, the instruction manual, and two zip lock bags of small hardware. This process did take a little bit of time and was a little involved.

The front of the packaging displays the fire-engine red quadcopter with black trim, with silver HD camera hanging beneath. The copter has 4 legs, 4 blade protectors and has a 500mmx500mm length/width with 190mm height. The front panel also displays a few of the features of the copter: 360 degrees flip stunts, 6 axis gyroscope, Headless mode, flashing LED lights, 2.4 GHz frequency, Hover function and HD camera. One side of the packaging displays the title and the other shows the remote control and the features. The remote does have a nontouch LCD screen along the bottom, 2 thumb sticks, high/low-speed function/Head free mode, and trimming buttons. The back of the box is the same as the front of the box. The bottom of the box has technical data to include dimensions as listed ad details the 7.4 V 2000 mAh Li-Po battery. There is a QR code along the bottom and the standard product labeling logos. The product requires 4AA batteries which are not included. The packaging is well done and provides a very immediate “OPEN ME NOW” feeling. The best way to compare this is to that feeling on Christmas morning, where the Tasmanian present opening devil comes to life.

I have had a few Quadcopters: METAKOO MK-Q01D Mini Drone, H22 Double-sided Inverted Flight Gyro Mini Drone. These are fun little drones, that can fly around your room, hover, flip/roll and once you get good, you can navigate your own little obstacle courses. One of my friends had the pleasure of flying a Phantom 4 drone and I was ready for one of my own.

Headless mode help you take off: Usually, people need to adjust the direction before flying,but now headless mode simplify the flying process, by using Headless, no need to adjust the position of aircraft before flying,the direction will be the same as your remote controller.

Amazing 3D flips: This drone can perform the 360 degree flips roll with one key, you will just think”what a amazing function!”while your performance attracting everyone’s eyeballs. it is very easy to use even for the beginner.

Tips for beginner:

2. Matching the drone and controller successfully and installing the propellers on right position ,otherwise the drone will not take off.
3. If the drone is flying to on side dramatically or spinning while hovering ,please switch off the power of both controller and drone and then match the drone and controller again.
4. Avoiding overcharging and excessive discharging the battery


This is the best of the x8 platform and the price is reasonable.
with altitude hold, it is so much easier to fly for beginners and experienced flyers. Altitude hold is great for taking your eyes off the quad while a distraction occurs, and this quad does just that. Same platform as all the other x8 series but with altitude hold.
