Q & A
Adjust the trim on the remotes until it's steady using the little d-pads. Also, it's very sensitive to air currents, so if there is a fan or even AC, that may be your issue.

On the top left side you push the black button then you turn it what ever direction you want to flip and it will flip that direction

Turn off the controller and then back on, the soma lights should start flashing, after they quit, then it should hover, use the push buttons to trim the hover and then your are good to go.

X11 and X5 are different products,so X11 won't bind with the Syma X5.Hope this could help you. Best wishes

No! This is a basic first step learn to fly only, no thrills. Great for beginners !

yes it is. If your new to quadcopters I'd leave it on

No it does not. You have to unplug the battery from quadcopter.

This is a great quad, and a good "next step" from a nano sized quad such as the Estes Synchro or Ares QX. It is very stable once trimmed out; I have let several first time flyers try it and they have all been successful within the first charge. The battery is good for about 5 minutes or so of flight time, however, it is a replaceable pack (unlike many of the nano quads), so multiple packs can be purchased. I use the tenergy 5 pack for the Hubsan X4 and although the fit is tight, it doubles the flight time. With 5 charged batteries you have an hour of flight time available. The build quality is good; not excellent which is why this review is a 4 star rather than 5. The gear driven props seem to be inconsistent with end play and mesh. This can intermittently cause the X11 to be out of balance momentarily. I disassembled the motopod and reset the end play to be consistent for each prop, however, it was not a permanent fix. My only other gripe is that the battery connectors are very tight, so much so that I am fearful that I will damage either the battery or the power lead coming from the circuit board. The transmitter is a surprisingly nice unit for such an entry level price point. It is well designed ergonomically and sized well for medium sized hands. Flight is very good, it is stable enough for indoors flight, and fast enough to be entertaining outside as well. Flips are easily executed. I purchased 4 of these, 3 as gifts, one for myself. All 4 are performing well after 3 months of use. It has proven to be very durable, especially with the prop guards in place, and is now my favorite micro quad. I hope that Syma launches the camera version of this quad soon.

This is a cool item. I purchased this for Christmas for one of my friends. It's a bit smaller than I expected but it still performers pretty well. It's a bit tricky at first but once you get the hang of it it's actually pretty fun! The only con about this is the battery life. You give this things a full change and you only get around five minutes of flying time, but I guess that is what is to be expected for a drone this size and price. Overall, it is a very good item and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a cheap and fun quadcopter to play around with.

This little drone actually worked better than expected. It's quite robust, I should know I've had it drop out of the air (due to bad piloting) and hit walls (again bad piloting), this thing just keeps ticking. This is NOT for kids to just pick up and use, it took me a good couple of days of flying it to get a handle of how touchy the controls are. When you do get the hang of it, this thing flies amazingly well. By day 2 I can pull sweeping turns and navigate around objects. My only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is the battery lasts about long enough to start getting the hang of flying it and then needs a charge. On average I'm getting between 5 and 10 minute flight time. The harder you make it fly (i.e. fast, braking pull ups, etc) the less the battery lasts. I've already order a set of batteries and they are pretty cheap, so you may want to think about doing that. Not much else to add, other than it's a pretty good buy. I wanted to get into drone flying and didn't want to learn on a $1500 pro-sumer model so got this thing to bang around. Glad I did!

I recently bought the Qs Qs5013 2.5ch Mini Micro Remote Control RC Helicopter (Yellow & Black). It was purely on a whim when it appeared on an Tomtop page. I thought it would be fun for the cats for 12 bucks. It is really cute and does work, but I could never fly it too well. I did a little research and realized a quad copter like this is a better choice. I am very impressed with this overall. It is ready to go out of the box. The battery even had a decent charge. You do have to put 4 AA in the controller. I was surprised to find that there is no power switch. It turns on as soon as you connect the battery (yes I was startled). The controller does have a power switch that lights up when on. Nice. It is much higher quality than the QS5013 overall. The arms light up. The front are blue and the rear are red. There are also 2 blue 'eyes' in the front. It looks really cool in a dim room. However, after my first 10 or 20 flights (most were a few seconds), one of the red LEDs went out. I saw it happen. I flicked the arm gently with my finger and it did flicker once, but never again. I assumed it was a bad solder joint and I could fix it later. When I tried to fly it again, it just tumbled. I am an experienced electronics technician, so I want to try to fix it. When I opened it up, I measured the bad LED as reading a short circuit. I had to further remove the motor housing to see that the motor wire was pinched and shorting the LED ground lead. Fortunately the wire only had a minor cut, so I didn't have to fix it. It was then easy to move it safely out of the way and reassemble. The copter now works great. The instructions are fairly helpful, and gave me a good laugh at the often improper English. Very cute though. I do recommend some online videos to help as well. I ordered 3 more to give to my nephews as gifts. They are in their late teens and early 20s. I'm not sure very young kids could fly this, but I'm sure there are exceptions. I also bought extra 250mAh batteries and chargers to give. Bigger batteries will fit, up to 500mAh, but you would have to remove the foam that acts as a battery stop. Also, many say it is harder to fly with the bigger battery. I do recommend this despite the problem I had. I am amazed by the technology involved for just $21. It really does work well. The cats are intrigued by it, but usually run away when it crashes.

One the best quadcopters I have played with. It would have got 5 stars but 1 star was taken away because the controller broken by the second flight. The on/off button would only work if held down so I took the remote controller apart and with the help of my eight year old niece I soldered the on/off circuit so it is always on. To turn off the controller I have to take out the batteries out after every flight. But the quadcopter is great especially for beginner's, it has power but isn't extremely fast like some nano copters I have used. It is also very stable with decent mobility. I just ordered another one for my niece.

great quad. maybe the sweet spot (although amz keeps raising the price). i have two of them. while we ALL complain about the manuals and the shabby translation from chinese, this one is especially egregious as it's impossible to get accurate information about functionality. . flight control 'low vs high speed' not explained . pg 3, the controller, buttons are mismarked, wrong, or inexplicable. english is undecipherable. the way i trim it does not reflect what i think the manual says. the buttons don't correspond . 'enter the trimming and resetting mode' huh? is there one. are the trim controls dynamic, operate while the quad is operating? . pg 2 confuses further. it shows a diagram of the cam equipped quad with photo/video buttons. but the trim controls are mistaken with the 'mode' switch performing a dual function? while power up? . resetting: "keep pressing the B, then...." jibberish and to make matters worse the 'specifications' published everywhere differ. 2 frequencies? huh? and on and on. wouldn't it be a great accessory product to be able to buy an intelligible english instruction manual? i'd buy did i mention? great quad

Nice quad with good night visibility & Maneuverability is very steady and easy to trim...But - I do wonder about a couple of things though - I bought 5 of these for gifts and tried each one. The first one was broken and would not fly at all (return pending). The second one has broken a prop twice in 2 days - this is with NO crashes and the prop guard on. It touched the ceiling and a prop broke and once I dropped it - yes dropped it - from my hand 2 feet to the ground and...yep another prop broke. Of the 8 other quads I have I have never broken a prop and the X-11 has broken 2 props in as many days with barely any flight time. Could it be Syma made a batch of faulty props? I plan to update this review as I get more stick time with this quad - I feel it's a 5-star quad but I'm running out of props. Looks like I may have found one more thing that makes the X-11 a bit less fun that other quads - it goes out of transmit range easily and then drops like a stone. I can go way higher with my other quads. If I go for altitude with the X-11, it begins flashing (good lights at night at least) and drops like a stone. Sometimes I can re-bind before it hits the ground, sometimes not. I use my Syma X5C controller and the X5 goes way higher, so I can only assume that the problem is the X-11 and not the controller.

This quadcopter is a sturdy and capable flying machine, but it is vulnerable to household dirt. It is as tame as a coaxial for beginners and the bumper cage is lots of fun for experts! BUT, beware of dust bunnies, hair and the like - they will ruin the bearings and they are fiendishly fastidious to fix. Not for winds much above 12kts or so - try Syma's X1 or X5 for that! And the X11's radio will work with an X5, so bring along the X5 for a take anywhere, fly anywhere fun little bit of kit. A good choice for beginners? 1). Cheap and fun - and it doesn't break easily, except for the hair issue. 2). Probably as good as a coaxial for learning to hover "Nose In" where the controls appear reversed. 3). And the 4 channel X11 will educate your "rudder" thumb at the same time! 4). Good fun for all - that bumper cage really is a hoot. UPDATE: this was one of my favorites - until the hairballs got it. Not a problem for normal folks. I'm too old, impatient and blind to deal with it. Besides, my Flysky FS-T6 radio can make a Syma X1 fly almost as well as an X11 - and it can make a WLToys V911 fly a whole lot better than an X11. All you need is an unlimited budget for cheap. See my reviews for the settings.

This model is much easier to fly than my other beginner's quadcopter. One frustration is the poor product documentation. Although you can get the gist of what the instructions are trying to say, it's painfully obvious that they were written by somebody with limited command of the English language (example: instead of referring to a light as being "steady" they say "eternally lit.") There is nothing wrong with providing more detailed documentation. I'm all for the "Quick Start Guide" concept, but having a bit more explanation on how the flight controls work, and a more detailed description of how to trim the aircraft and adjust the control settings would have been helpful.

The first quad I received had some strange defective issues with the quad losing binding to the transmitter if the throttle was too low and the quad doing random flips out of nowhere (flip button not pressed). That version of the Syma X11 was V.3, but I think the issue was just a bad board. The replacement I received is a V.2 and does not have any of the issues the first quad presented. This quad is very stable and is a good flyer both indoors and outdoors. Be careful when flying without the prop-guard as the propellers are very brittle and do break easily. It would be a good idea to get replacement props when they're available from here or you can get them from other sites (look up Symatoystore).

This little thing is a BLAST! It comes ready to fly right out of the box(after charging the battery and putting batteries in the TX of course). It comes with a spare set of props and prop guard. You won't need the props due to how durable they are. I have taken some falls and hit the wall, tree, and ground multiple times and the props are still going. The prop guard has broken but that's due to some serious hits. It's very stable and easy to fly. So much so that I can fly it around my house no problem. Only problem I've had so far is a motor fried in not even a week's use. No worries tho, order some chaoli 615 motors and get back in the air!!

Hasn't broken yet and I have had it for a few weeks. Very fun little toy, quite challenging to master. It flies flat and true -- controls are super-sensitive, but that's what makes it fun to master. The battery connection is a weak spot which I am sure will be the part to break. You also just kind of stuff the battery and cord into a hole in the back which is kind of lame. The rest has proven to be far more durable than expected, and as we fly it inside the house the bumper guard is key. My very talented son figured out how to make it do a full 360 degree flip, which is pretty cool. The battery only lasts for five minutes though. Might want to get a couple spares. But we have found five minutes is just about right and a brief family diversion that leaves us wanting to try again in an hour or so when it's charged up again. Turns out it's got a camera for stills and video which I guess would write to a micro SD card. Haven't tried it. Seems more like a gimmick and extra weight to me. Perhaps the most delightful part is reading the manual, whose translation from Chinese, I assume, is truly priceless. Seriously, these dudes put their energy into the right place -- I am sure my attempt to translate English to Chinese would be equally amusing.

great item, only four stars because at the end of the charge it will blink and fall to the ground all at the same time without giving hardly any chance to land it before it shuts off, hopefully it's not too far away at that point. after getting used to it, it will become easier to tell when the battery gets closer to the end of its discharge cycle. Before I purchased this item, I read a review that stated this syma x11 hornet puts the hubsan h107L to shame, and it really does, as I also own one. it is my new favorite of my medium sized blind flyers I have. the props are geared down and not direct drive like the hubsan is, it is extremely responsive. the throttle takes some getting used to at first, it is sensitive and requires next to nothing to get it into the air. Battery life is definitely adequate, not positive, but seemed to last about 8 minutes on a charge with 260 mah batteries installed. (comes with one 200 mah battery) and even the 200 lasted for a good stretch. controller has a great feel and size, inside the controller, it was very easy to do an antenna modification with a soldering iron, and now it has a range far beyond what it had. the only real regret that I have is that I didn't buy this Syma x11 hornet from the start! recently, I soldered a really bright blue LED to the vcc and ground for the camera version, and since it has no camera and there is only a plastic cap in the front of the aircraft, I stuffed the LED behind the cap and in front of the battery tray. it's very bright, shines through the dark plastic no problem. and I've crashed this little thing so many times that I've bought three and replaced the body one the most recent one twice already, prop guard has been dragging it down too much so the aircraft is more vulnerable. but since I had already replaced the body twice on it, this time I just took my soldering iron, a piece of plastic, and melted the plastic over the cracks in the body like melted cheese. absolutely stinks and probably isn't the best thing for your health, but it saved the 3rd x11's shell, and I forgot to mention, the most recent time I replaced the shell, I wanted to switch it up a little more, so I got a shell for an x11c (camera version) and it was a direct fit, it's the same thing minus the graphics on the top. worked out well, it flies no differently than it ever did before.

Again... SYMA! Their products are some of the best. This little buzzer is a good little toy... and a good transition trainer to quads. I've been flying helicopters... I've tried several different makers and have pretty much settled on SYMA for helicopters. But I wanted to move to quad copters... so I bought a SYMA X8C Quad Copter. I have reviewed that product here on Amazon and wasn't so happy with it. It sustained damage too easily, I thought. I've crashed the helicopters numerous times and they've proven resilient. But the X8C broke after only five or six flights. But maybe now I think I should have started flying quads with something smaller and simpler... like the X11... then moved up. The X11 came with a blade guard not shown in the illustration. The blade guard is a major plus. You will need fewer replacement blades. one negative-- The connector set... male/female, battery to copter... is delicate and tiny. I can see how easily it would be to damage the wiring and solder joints when connecting/disconnecting, as you must do each and every time you recharge the battery. You must remove the battery to charge it. Forgo the temptation to leave the battery in the body of the copter while recharging. This is not a smart move when charging LiPo's. They are subject to overheating and catching fire or exploding if they are not charged properly. Read and inform yourself about Lithium-polymer batteries and heed all warnings. When charging take the battery out each time and place the battery on a non-flammable surface... I use an old dinner plate.... just be very careful to avoid pulling the wires from the solder joints or the connector. Positive-- The X11 is an exceptional flier. It's fast and responsive and can fly outdoors in light wind. So far I have not exceeded the range on the controller. That will probably happen, but the range seems to be more than enough for my purposes. I have been focusing on training myself to control a quad. It's a different animal than a helicopter. So I don't know much about the aerobatics yet. I'll update as I learn more. Bottom line so far-- I recommend the SYMA X11 R/C Quadcopter. UPDATE-- Two more flights... indoors and outdoors...no issues. Fights the wind and wins. Liking this thing!

I really enjoy these toy-class quadcopters and hexacopters. I've had a few, and this one is particularly special to me. The short version of my assessment would be to buy at *least* one of these, if not two. They are cheap and great fun. The prop guard is one of the best designed that I've seen. You can bump this thing off the wall, off the ceiling, and it keeps flying with no harm to the quadcopter or to the room itself. I do like to take the prop guard off when I'm going to fly outdoors. It does fly a little better without the burden. The props themselves are gear driven, which allowed Syma to install bigger props and smaller motors. Those big props can spin more slowly than smaller props, so this quadcopter is not quite as noisy as others in its class. I ended up buying a bunch of spare props but I never needed them. The original props still look great, partly because they are high quality, and partly because the prop guard does its job. As quadcopters go, this one is really easy to fly. This is the one that I teach friends and family how to fly on. It's so forgiving. But even once you know what you're doing, you can get it outside into expert mode and really have some fun with it. The range isn't awesome, but it'll get so small in the distance that you'll lose orientation anyway before the range will drop off. My nits? The yaw rate is a bit slow. I'd like to see a faster yaw rate, at least in the expert mode. There is no real battery warning to speak of. You get a quick flash and then it just drops from the sky. I'd like to have a ~30 second warning on the batteries so I can land the aircraft responsibly. The airframe was made to carry a camera, which this model doesn't have. I'd love to have seen this model simply carry a larger battery for longer flight times instead of having an empty camera bay.

Before you try to fly for the first time or if hard to fly try this: Reset the controller - Press and hold the left button on the left D pad - While holding press power on the controller - If you hear 3 beeps it has reset and you should be able to fly Still not working or want it to fly better? - Plug the battery into the quadcopter then place on flat level surface before doing above steps - Do the level calibration (page 3) - Trim buttons fine tune it during flight (D pad buttons) Page 3 of the manual shows how to rest it as well but due to the creative translation to english it is not as clear as it should be. The quadcopter spent months in my closet since I was never able to fly more than a few seconds because of what I thought was a bad motor. Turns out I just had to hold a button before turning on the controller. Review: For under $30 its an inexpensive way to try out flying a drone and it works well for indoor/outdoor flying once set up properly. I think the size is perfect: small enough for a decent size room indoors yet large and powerful enough to take outside. There are hundreds of reviews for it all over that cover the x11 in extreme detail, it seems to be considered one of the best options if you are just starting or want to try flying without spending a ton of money. Tip: Spare batteries can be found easily on for just a few dollars, flight time is short but typical for this size (about 6 min) and takes a while to charge (30-60 min). I recommend picking up a few extra batteries especially if you are going outside. I paid around $7 for 2 batteries that have a little longer flight time and it was well worth it.

Surprisingly durable. I've treed it three times and it hasn't broken yet. I was reckless and flew it out of range- it dropped from 20 or 30 feet and did not break. The connector between the battery and the copter is very hard to manage. I would recommend older children and adults only attempt it. I use needle-nose pliers for a firmer grip. I am worried the power wire connected to the internal circuit board will pop right off if I am not very gentle, but I understand they have made tradeoffs to make the copter as light as possible. The red and blue running lights are essential- from a distance it's impossible to tell which way the copter is facing without those lights for reference.

I'm no expert in quadcopters, however I have flow plenty of RC helicopters. Playing with this quad has been fun the few flights I have on it right now. I've crashed a couple times and it's holding up awesomely. Pros Fly's well Can bump things and recover ( thank you random wind gust and my front yard oak) Easy set up Very stable ( anything you can throw give power and it right itself into stable flight is awesome) Durable Meh The range is OK, it likes to cut out at about the distance I can barely see it so it's not really a pro or a con Cons Challenging to fly in almost any wind (it's small and light so kind of expected as much) Only average flight time with the stock 200mah battery (5-6 mins) Overall I would say a good deal for the price and I think I made a good choice for learning to fly quads, purchased some 380mah batteries so I can hopefully fly for longer more often. Great little quad.

This is an excellent beginner's quad and the beginning of a long lasting addiction..cough.. hobby. It's stable and easy to fly and the prop guard really helps as you crash and bump into things and crash and crash and crash..its VERY durable! I flew indoors to work on precision flying and basics so I wouldn't crash it into a tree and loose my quad in a few days. Then i took the prop guard off and went outside and turned up the rates. My training paid off and then I found it's limitations. While this copter is stable it does not like to be tossed about when you fly at full pitch. (look up the technique called pitch flying). It doesn't like to change direction aggressively and will tumble if you upset it too much. It flutters like a leaf as doesn't gain enough stability to recover as it flutters to the ground. I think I have a weak motor and I'll just have to fly to continue to evaluate. Another con is that grit can get into the geared motors. Watch out for that. Regular maintenance with a dry tooth brush is very important to maintain peak flying efficiency. It easy to disassemble just make sure you use a magnet to keep track of the screws and do not over tighten!! However it was quite the handful when I got it being a total n00b. I was so glad to get this one because of it's stability. Think of this quad as your first car in highschool. You learn to appreciate the sports car when you start small and slow.

This is a fantastic little flier for the price. The prop guard does a great job of protecting the blades and the motors too. My Syma X1s always had a problem with sucking up hair or strings and choking the motor out, but not this one. I've owned an F550 hex, F450 quad, multiple X1s, two Hubsan X4s (didn't hold up nearly as well as this X11, and I didn't like the TX) and now two of these. In the month or so that I've had them, I've racked up more flying time with this than any other craft. The only reason I hold off on the 5th star? The yaw rate is rather slow in comparison to the rates of pitch and roll, also, they lose a lot of lift on the tail end of the battery. Still, fun as hell to fly and cheap enough there's no need to repair if you do find a way to break it, just buy another, or just buy two off the bat so your friends can join in the fun!
