Syma X5C-1 review


Syma X5C is a small quadcopter drone, and this is the NEW version X5c-1. It has many great features for a very low price of 50$, 6 Axis Gyro, 2.4GHz 4 Channel Remote Control, 360 Degrees accurate orientation

Syma X5C is not only a simple helicopter toy, but also an excellent flying 720P camera that captures and records every unforgettable moment all around you.

This are the main features:

  • 360 roll
  • 6-axis gyroscope
  • Hover capability
  • HD camera included
  • 100x faster radio control
  • Further remote distance with spectrum technology
  • Modular design
  • Indoor / outdoor flight
  • 2 pounds in weight
  • 50 meter remote distance

Speaking aboute the remote control, users can change the remote with a flip of a switch to allow for left or right hand throttle. For lefties that often have to fly with their right throttle, this is a nice change.

Instructions say he control works up to 50m, but we tried up to 100m and it worked fine! The controls were superfast. The moment you hit the directional left, right or any other direction, the copter will react. Out of all models in this price range, I have never tried a remote with this much control.

This copter is very agile. You’ll even be able to perform full 360 degree flips with ease. Smaller in size, this copter zips through the air with relative ease, which allows you to quickly combat wind gusts or any obstacles in your way.

Hovering was surprisingly easy, which is hard to find even in mid-priced models.

Modular designs are ideal because you can swap out parts quickly and easily. For any beginner, this is great because you can be expected to crash a lot. Heck, even advanced pilots can crash and often do.

There are propeller guards included that will protect the propellers in the event you crash and burn. Advanced users will often leave these guards off to reduce the weight and increase flight time.

The Syma X5C Explorers Quadcopter is the perfect model for beginners. This is not a Phantom and doesn’t claim to be, but at $58, you can’t ask for more. The advanced control technology ensures a further communication distance with the remote and a faster transmission of the signal for faster response time from your drone.
