Flight test of the $55 Syma X5C Explorers quadcopter with HD video camera: Its specifications are linked here: http://www.banggood.com/Syma-X5C-2_4G-4-Channel-Remote-Control-RC-Quadcopter-p-913827.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3

My thoughts:

1: Camera is OK for a 720p, but it’s pointed way too far downward. But this is easily corrected by removing its mounting screws, and hot-gluing a shim in for a better view angle.

2: It really isn’t very steady outside of hover in maneuvering flight. Believe that its flight logic could be greatly improved. As it is now, it really has a hard time when a breeze hits it, and can start wobbling erratically with wind or sharp maneuvers.

3: The range is not impressive at all. Because of its wind issue, it can easily be blown out of range. Also when it flies out of range, it will maintain the last control input for a couple seconds before the motors cut out. A manual rebind (quickly moving the throttle down and up) is required when this occurs .

Overall assessment, because of #2 and #3, I foresee a lot of these ending up on neighbors roofs or in the trees. The X5C looks fantastic, and comes with a nice camera but a bad camera view angle. Because of the weight of the camera, It has mediocre flight performance in anything other than hover or a windless day.
