I have other Syma Drone products, and I have been impressed with nearly all of them, but this one shows that Syma is not resting on its past success.
In this video I unbox the quad, review its parts and pieces, put it through its maiden flight & first FPV Flight, and at the end of the video I wrap it up with a review followed by a few drone crash outtakes! lol
Just in case you are wondering where I got this, I got it from Gearbest.com. Here is a link to it: http://gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_333256.html?&lkid=10422077
Here are my review notes for this FPV multirotor:
– Fun and easy to fly
– Super stable
– Altitude hold feature that performs better than expected
– Very durable
– FPV allows you to record to your smart phone and see the footage at the same time
– There is some slight lag in the FPV, but not bad
– The throttle cut takes some getting used to for it to work right
– Not a legit con, but it is hard to control when doing flips indoors
In addition to what I mentioned above, I did a quick size comparison between the Syma X5HW FPV Drone quadcopter and several other popular quads. Those include my Cheerson CX-10C Nano Quad, Blade Inductrix Micro Quad, Blade Nano QX 3D, Syma X5SC-1 Falcon, and Syma X8C Venture.
This FPV Quad is the lastest advancement along with the Syma X5HC Camera Drone of the original Syma X5C, which had earned great reputation as one of the best beginner quadcopters out there.
