Syma X5HW is pretty fun, I flew it in some pretty heavy wind and it held very well. The auto hover works good too, this is the first quad I’ve had that on, I can see where its really handy for hovering around. It has no GPS so it wont hold position, but the altitude hold does work.
Flips are fun, the next video we will see how long it will do them, be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss that! As much as I wanted to fpv it around, the latency/lag of the video, combined with the camera stuck being horizontal on the quad, ensures you cant fpv it very well, maybe they can make that adjustable in the future. But if your going to hover up high and look around it works well.
This is a great beginner quad, with the prop guards on it should be very durable. I’ve flipped it over a few times on landing and had zero damage. So its pretty tough. I think I might put a Runcam2 on it in the future and see how that goes.
– Auto hover works very well
– Flips and rolls with a button
– Comes with spare props
– Does not require FAA registration as it weighs less than 250 grams.
– Latency in the WiFi, not good for fpv
– Proprietary Syma battery connector prevents using third party batteries. But you could change the quadcopter’s power connector to a standard mini Losi connector if you wish to use the widely available generic (and cheap) Syma X5C batteries.
– Photo and video resolution is relatively low at 0.3MP/640x480p. This is an inherent limitation of WiFi FPV fliers.
