Best value in a quadcopter

I’m giving this five stars for the value. I didn’t expect pro quality camera and it is not. Picture is good but the frame rate is slow so with fast flying it gets real jumpy. It does have the ability to take video and still shots and you can turn it on and off on the controller. It also has a button you can hold down to do flips in any four of the directions. It is very stable and holds up in slight wind. It has some of the best auto stabilization for an under $100 quad. It does not do what I would refer to as auto brake very well. So if you are going in one direction fast it does not pull back when you let off the stick. It just keeps going with that momentum. At least one of Helios from WL has great compensation in that regard. It’s pretty quick I would guess about 15-20 mph at max speed. The lights make it very visible at night though I did have a visit from the cops for a reporting of strange lights. They of course wanted me to get it out and we’re pretty impressed. :). I think it says max distance is 35 meters and I haven’t run out of range yet. I feel like I’ve definitley been over that but not sure how far.

I’m very happy with my choice

I’ll start out by saying this is my first quad in years of flying and building RC planes. I’ve flown a few quads with friends and in simulators. I was really looking for something new to fly, so I decided I’d try something that doesn’t take a lot of time and money to try out. I’m very happy with my choice. It’s very easy to fly, very durable, and it’s a great value. The black and red make it a lot easier to tell the front. I’ve had a lot of fun with it. Here are a few tips: 1. It’s super durable and survived several hard falls, but it has a tendency to fall upside down. To avoid grass tangles and prop damage, avoid cutting the throttle completely. 2. The camera will not keep your video if it loses power before you tell it to stop filming. 3. I’d say this is mostly an outdoor quad, but it’s not the greatest in wind. Trim it inside and practice a bit. For indoor flight, it’d be better in a gym. The micro quads are better in normal houses. 4. If you fly it out of range, you’ll lose control; it seems to stay hovering though. Mine just hovered with the wind into a tree, but it survived unscathed. 5. On the range, the antenna definitely isn’t a great size for 2.

UPDATE – CAMERA… EASY Propeller Guard adj. w/ TOOTHPICK

… replaced noname 4gb microsd with SanDisk Ultra microSDHC UH-I card with speed up to 98 mb/sec via Amazon for $11.49 (pic)…Syma X5C is a fun starter drone for $35 PLUS Tenergy’s 6 – 700mah batteries that includes charger handling all 6 batteries at a time $19 PLUS Avawo’s spare parts that include 4 motors $12 TOTALS $66. Clipped toothpicks clear prop guard from props (pic). I use the same screwdriver to easily disconnect battery from drone as used for its screws (DO NOT PULL ON THE WIRES or eventually they’ll get loose). I replaced 3 motors so far by twisting stripped wires matching the colors rather than soldering. I’ve had this FUN drone since May 7, 2018 as of May 23, 2018. My first experience as “PILOT”. Our grandkids are excited and better pilots than myself. BETTER CAMERA NEEDED. I’ll be replacing cheap noname microsd since it quit working and refuses to reformat on my laptop. I did get some pics and video via the drone.

Everything was going fine, the unit is very stable and pretty easy …

This was (notice past tense) my first attempt at flying a quadcopter. It came assembled with the props on. I only had to install the battery and prop guards. The instruction book was written by a non english person judging from the grammatical errors but I was able to decipher the directions eventually. I practiced indoors for a week and a half because the December winds on Lake Erie are usually 15-25 mph. The first day there was no wind I took it out and soloed outside. Everything was going fine, the unit is very stable and pretty easy to fly. Unfortunately, I had it up around 70 ft when my battery started to go. I could’t control it and it now sets 60 ft up in a maple tree. We’ve since had 30 mph winds since but it’s socked in pretty tight. I made the mistake of flying it outside with the prop guards on and that’s why it got hung up. I ordered a new version Syma X5C and it was $30.00 cheaper. Hard to justify this price for an extra battery. However, it does fly well (with strong battery) and the camera provides adequate shots for fun. My new Syma will be flown only in areas without trees!

INCREDIBLE drone to learn on

This drone is AWESOME! For a first time droner, this is perfect for learning how to fly one without wasting/losing a lot of money….lets face it you are gonna crash it or get it stuck in a tall tree…..both happened on Mother’s Day the first time I flew it. But it was eventually retrieved from the 50 foot treetops and from the cattails in the middle of the wetlands and still operates like it did out of the box. Battery time seems to be rather limited though, so glad there are two included. Videos are awesome….however it takes some getting accustomed to the direction of the camera to get specific shots. The drone is very light so it soars extremely high. The only problem with that is not knowing what winds are that high–which can take it from you and send it any direction the wind is blowing. Regardless I love this new toy of mine!

Good "starter drone", sturdy, user-friendly, and well-made.

I have played with small RC aircraft before usually with frustrating results. The X5C really does make it a lot easier to fly; the only thing that takes any effort (and is still the most difficult to me) is altitude control. The remote works well, and while the instructions are sometimes unclear (and other times a bit amusing) they explain the functions reasonably well. The camera takes decent pictures and video. It comes with a micro SD card, but I had lots of errors with it, and ended up using one of the many spares I have lying around the house – it works perfectly. Battery life is surprisingly good, but I would recommend looking for one of the many multi-battery and combo packages that can go with this – they give even more life, and you won’t be waiting for a battery to charge ever. I am sure it’s a bit luck, but my X5C survived several minor crashes (one from almost 6 feet up) without a scratch. DO use the blade guards, though – they will save you some repairs and you can always take them off once you get to be an expert. I’m really happy with this drone and it is turning out to be much more fun than I expected.

The Syma X5C Quadcopter Drone with Camera is absolutely fun to fly

The Syma X5C Quadcopter Drone with Camera is absolutely fun to fly. Order extra batteries! Too fun to put down and wait for a recharge. I got this to use as practice flying for my Phantom 3 Professional drone to practice the attitude mode type of flight. But I take this out all the time and play with it because it is very fun to fly! I don’t mess with the camera except for the first time to make sure it worked. It worked as well as can be expected and it came with a 4Gig SD card extra propellers and Propeller guards. I fly this thing when it is fairly windy take it off forward into the wind and out about a hundred feet and 30 feet in the air. Then hold in the right silver mode button and push the right stick up down left or right and the copter will flip 360 degrees in that direction. I have done it as low as 8 feet high and it is very cool to see. The manual is translated from Chinese and can be hard to understand but this is a very fun copter to practice on if you are at all interested in purchasing a bigger (non toy) model like the Phantoms. I crashed this thing into the driveway, caught in tree etc over and over again on windy days and I have not hurt it yet.

Fun Quad!

This is my second Syma X5C-1. The first one a motor failed on the third flight. Amazon processed the return quickly. This allowed me to order this, second, one. After a bit of practice it is a really fun to fly. It works much better in open spaces. Taking it outside, with instructions from me, my six year old daughter was able to quickly learn the basics of flying. The camera is 2MP . It takes OK pictures. It is difficult to know what, exactly, you are taking a picture of. I think it will be simpler to take video and grab a frame from it for pictures. I’m going to test that tomorrow. Really enjoying it. Everyone has a bad day. It’s why I took the chance and ordered it again. I’ll probably be buying one for my daughter just do I can have a turn!
