Review Syma X5C-1 6-Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter Drone with Camera

Introduction Syma X5C-1

This is an amazing little quadcopter that has fantastic flight performance, given its price point. This flies well both indoors, and outdoors. You can fly this in moderate winds, but obviously come in for a landing when the winds speed picks up. It is a smaller quadcopter, and makes for a very good trainer.

This quadcopter is very durable and capable of withstanding repeated crashes. You may find that your dog loves to chase after this quadcopter. It can withstand several successful dog captures, and a few bites from your pooch.

Flight Performance

The quadcopter has a low rate which is great for flying indoors and tight spaces. The high rate opens up the agility and speed of the quadcopter and is amazing for outdoors. The screen will let you know which mode you are in.

This quadcopter flies very smoothly, and is very responsive to commands from the controller. Once you have it trimmed, it is very easy to keep quadcopter stable. This quadcopter has great maneuverability, and has no problem making decent bank turns.

A typical problem that quadcopters of comparable size have, is when you reduce the throttle, and the drone begins to descend, if you suddenly hit the throttle in an attempt to recover altitude, the drone often wobbles, and still crashes. This quadcopter does not suffer from this deficiency. The drone is very responsive to throttle commands.

The prop guards do add a bit of weight. They are good for indoor flying when you are first starting out, but you can eventually remove them once you gain some more experience.

Conclusion

The Syma X5C-1 is a quadcopter that is remarkably stable and a lot of fun to fly. It also makes an excellent trainer drone that you can crash over and over again without worrying too much. Add to that a 2MP camera and a price tag of less than $100 and it becomes no surprise why the X5C-1 is now a must-have quadcopter for both beginners and seasoned pilots.

It isn’t perfect, though, considering that it has a rather flimsy battery door that can be a bit hard to use. Its conventional x-shape body and rather ugly transmitter may not be features to shout about too but the X5C-1 more than makes up for its weaknesses with its reliability, affordability and not to forget, truly enjoyable flight performance.

Pros
  • Extremely easy to fly.
  • Built-in camera.
  • Adjustable trim settings.

Pros:
– Has everything you need to learn how to handle quadcopters
– Camera isn’t great but works
– 7 minutes of fly time
– remote control with the screen
Cons:
– you can’t see what your camera is doing
– better consider a wi fi remote using your phone
– buy spare batteries


Pros:
Great quadcopter to learn with. Just started myself and thought it was easy to get the hang of it with this quad. It also can take quite a beating. Crashed a lot and got it stuck in trees, and it also took a few free falls in the house and outdoors but nothing broke and still flys straight! The camera is fun to use but has low quality, which was expected from a 2mp cam. Video is also fun to use but it will drain the battery a little bit more quickly. Great buy for the price!! Lots of fun! If your starting in this hobby and don\’twant to spend too much money to try it out, you should definitely consider this quadcopter as a first choice!
Cons:
Greate flying experience

Pros:
Im very happy with my order, the drone is amazing!! very stable. The camera is HD, I was expecting a far worse quality but that’s not the case. I can see colours, faces and details!! I mean its even better than expected considering the price!!!!! It comes with everything included. I also bought the 4 slot charger and 4 extra batteries. Very useful!! I am very happy. I recommended it. It made a 26 year old “boy” very happy yestarday. 🙂
