Use an item that allows you to climb or cut down the tree with a fork! Oh, call the fire department I hear they help with cats in trees.

The top left button when pressed and released once will change the quad from low to high power. You will need high power to fly in any wind above 5mph. The high setting makes the quad much more agile too.

No it doesnt.

yes any drone that weighs .55 lbs or more needs to be registered. Only $5 for a 3 year registration and the # they give you can be put on all your drones that need to be registered.
By SteadyFlyer24/7 on February 21, 2018
Yes. All quadcopters over .55 lbs must be registered. However it is only $5. It isn't the drone it is actually the pilot that is registered. The pilot can have an unlimited number.

Which one is better would depend on what you are looking for. They both offer IOC headless mode which helps when you are trying to learn to fly. You can engage IOC and it allows the right stick to hold constant; meaning, that no matter the direction of the "front" of the quad, the right stick when pushed forward, the quad moves forward. Right stick back, the quad moves back, and right, and left accordingly. The X8W has wifi and FPV (First Person Video). You can download an app and see what the camera sees with the wifi version. Now speaking of the camera... It is a 2MP camera and does not do well on either quad so don't think you will get great video. Photos are ok. Hope this helps. see less

Nice price (49 USD), 4 days of delivery from Germany to Czech Republic. Rich accessories include spare parts. The model is very large and therefore less mobile, but stable and robust. Precision processing, simple assembly. The model carries its own sports camera, but it does not have a barometer or a gps so you can not create a completely seamless video and the model is already heavy after installing the Gymbal. This will adversely affect battery life. It is very modal, in case of defects, you can buy spare parts cheaply. For beginners and intermediate advanced machines for unbeatable price on tomtop. Charge time approx. 3 hours, flight time 10 minutes with stock camera turned on. He wants to be a replacement battery. I got a gift from tomtop for free! Absolutely the best Chinese business.I love this machine and it does not stop to have fun.

This drone is perfect for the beginner. As someone new to flying drones, crashing it was a regular occurrence and it takes a beating well. I ordered several parts for this, which I highly recommend for all new flyers. Extra batteries, propellers, legs, and propeller guards will all be beneficial for any beginner. The body has not sustained any damage thus far, but these other parts do not fair as well. Flight is still easily accomplished when the other parts are damaged. The battery lasts anywhere from 7 - 10 minutes based on flying conditions and type of flying done. The camera is a decent camera and provides decent video and photos. That being said, two areas that are in need of improvement are the instructions, as they are very limited, and adding a return to home feature. I recently lost this drone, and this was a forgone conclusion after I had been flying it for a month. The controls and instructions for flying are limited, and determining a problem with the controls is difficult. One example is that on numerous occasions, my drone would get airborne and I was able to control it for a limited amount of time. The main problem was that I never could get it back to my position, or remotely close. I just lost it recently because no matter how I moved the controls, it would never make any change in course to come back toward me. It just kept going away and away and away until it was gone. This is not an expensive drone to replace, but as other reviewers have stated, the controller is more like a toy, than a sophisticated piece of equipment. It looks out of place when compared to the drone. A feature to have the drone return to home is desperately needed for this product. All in all, the drone is great for beginners, it withstands beginner usage, and has a decent camera. The instructions are limited and your best best is to look online for how to fly. This is defineitely worth the price, but be sure to buy the other parts as you wil,need them if you are learning. Be careful with flight as well, since my drone felt like it had a mind of its own on many occasions.

This Syma X8C Venture Quadcopter with 2MP Wide Angle Camera is easy to fly, very stable, and does well in wind speeds 10mph and below. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is that the camera setup as delivered results in very noisey videos. The gimbal on the camera is just loose enough to cause a lot of "Jello" or shake in the video especially in high speed mode. The manufacturer Syma should add a locking mechanism to the camera gimbal to lock it firmly into the desired angle position to clean up this video "Shake". Fortunately, there is a video on line entitled "I CAN STOP YOUR JELLO ON YOUR SYMA x8c camera" which explains how to fix the problem. The opening at the bottom of the camera is taped and the camera is foamed between the camera and the gimbal. This fix completely removed the video "Jello" in both low and high speed modes of the quadcopter. Pictures of this camera modification are attached. Other than the camera video problem, this is an awesome quadcopter.

The Syma X8C is a nice starter drone and I have been enjoying mine greatly. It is the same size and shape as the original DJI Phantom 1 & 2 so quite a few of the Phantom parts will fit these. I have already bought the much better Phantom extra tall and wide landing skids as I plan to mount my GoPro Hero 3+ under mine as the camera that comes with this drone leaves a LOT to be desired, which is why I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5, that and the flmsy landing legs that came with the X8C, and the cheap prop guards. Do yourself a favor and leave them off and just buy extra props as the guards snap off the first time you have even a light crash or bump into something. The one thing this drone really needs is GPS and nav sensors, so it can hover stable on it's own, which is something the more expensive drones can do. Put those two items in this beauty and it would be worth more money to get those upgrades for me and many others I suspect. My one other bit of advice for Syma, is make it so the microSD card goes into some sort of internal compartment on the camera with a door or put it in the radio transmitter as having it spring loaded in the back of the camera is a problem. You have one crash where the camera pops off and there goes your microSD card as well. All in all, a great beginner drone with room for improvements on future versions.

Great drone to learn with. READ the instructions prior to flight, and always fly in an open field with plenty of space when first learning. Similar size to a DJI phantom. I purchased this and paired it with a DB Power sj4000 knock of cam. Works well. Unfortuanately the Syma I received had one of the motors burn out in mid flight, and it plummeted 100 to the ground. It landed in the grass, yet nothing broke. I was unable to fly it again, because that one particular motor would spin, heat up, smoke, and quit--therefore making it impossible to fly. I have sent it back to amazon due to faulty, damaged item. Waiting for refund--will update when that process follows thru. Otherwise, great drone to practice and learn with, prior to dishing out hundreds of dollars for a high end Dji phantom or such model. Even though my first drone burnt out a rotor motor, I ended up still ordering a 2nd one. Taking a chance again, i guess you can say? You can order new rotor motors for this model online for about $7. If mine burns out again, I will just order a new motor and install myself (its simply a plastic male/female plug switch). Would recommend to those getting into flying quadcopter!

I took an FCC certified fat shark camera and transmitter and fit it inside of the little camera shell. I connected the power to the balance lead on the battery, and use this quadcopter for a perfect DIY FPV experience. This quad copter is large and everybody points to it thinking it's one of the most expensive nicest quad copters in my collection. The range is great and I never have any brownouts. If you like large and loud, this is the way to go. I had to take a star off for the silly looking radio controller and the sub-part camera, which I hollowed out and replaced with the video TX/cam. The photo compares the size of the syma to a common nano quadcopter.

For my first ever quad copter, I wanted to find something economical, that I could fly outdoors, take some fun aerial pics and video and learn how to fly without the wind being a significant issue. The X8C seemed to fit that description well, so I made the purchase. It arrived quickly and everything was as advertised. After reading reviews, I decided to use YouTube instructions rather than the poorly translated ones that came in the box. It was an easy assembly, but one thing I was concerned about was the jelly wobble I had seen in reviews and on YouTube. I invested in a prop balancer and using video tutorials I balanced all 4 props before assembly. I also cut two pieces of shoe cushion gel and placed one in the small recess between the camera mount and copter body. The other I placed between the camera housing and the camera mount. These small efforts have made jelly wobble almost completely disappear. The X8C is intuitive to fly but before I lift off I always calibrate the gyros and headless mode. With this, there are no control issues. If you have more than 5 mph wind, you have to be in mode 2 to go upwind. I watched reviews by quadcopter101 on YouTube before I ever flew just to learn what to watch out for, especially rotor vortex state. All beginners should invest that 18 minutes. The battery life is 10 minutes, takes 3+ hours to charge. The camera, as mentioned in other reviews, is not great but with my adjustments, I'm satisfied (didn't expect IMAX). See the picture. I now have 4 flights under my belt and I am very satisfied with this purchase. 4 Stars just because it's not off the charts awesome. I got what I paid for and expected.

I had previously owned a Syma x5c-1 and loved it . So when I wanted to step up to a bigger quad i figured i try the x8c, since the smaller predecessor was so much fun. I must say i am impressed with this quadcopter! It handles extremely well and is very stable even in light wind. My biggest draw back is the same as most other reviews....the camera is worthless. Im waiting my Mobius to come in for better video! Also not so much a problem with the quad but with the sender....I ordered the x8c in black and when it arrived i received a white one instead! It still flys fantastic i just would have preferred it in black as to see it better in the sky since it had an incredible range! All in all a very good quadcopter for the price and grest entry level into mid size quadcopters!
November 30, 2017
I love my X8C, for a beginer it was easy to take off to the air, orange is a great color to follow in the ski, I had purchase extra batteries and I recomend doing same because you wont want to stop flying. extra props and guard be recomemnded to but I am still using the original ones except the prop guards. I reaize that the guards added weight makes it more tippy at first but you would be glad you have them untill you get a steady hand on the control. Camera takes diccent shots, video is great especially for a novice like me, its great to see how high and what manouvers you made. On and all i give it a 4 star not becaus eof the Syma X8c but because of the charger that come with it is not of much quality, hard to read instruction and the power cable stop making contact after the third time I used it.

The camera quality isn't great, but that's a non issue if you have a light weight camera to mount on this thing. go pro etc. This quad is a very nice entry level camera quad, I do not recommend this quad to beginners, however for an experienced pilot this is a fun quad to play around with. This does have brushed motors, and a slow turn rate. Requires a bit of maintenance to make this quad fly perfectly. (prop balancing etc.) I modified my receiver with an 8dbi antenna and mounted an fpv setup inside the defunct camera. If you can get past the issues I stated (brushed motors, mediocre camera) this quad is a great buy.

This is my first drone and of course AFTER buying it I see many reviews that it isn't for beginners. The directions are apparently written by someone that speaks Chinese and can reasonably communicate in English. This is how the directions are written but not too terribly difficult to understand. The propellers aren't real easy to put on and AFTER I got all 4 of them on I saw on the BOX that there is an A or a B marked on the propeller and it needs to match to that motor. (I never saw this in the directions) Of course somehow I didn't have any of the 4 right so I had to change them all. I don't think it is coincidence the supplied screwdriver is magnetic and it sure helps trying to insert those tiny rods into the propeller shaft. It is sturdy, yeah I crashed several times at low altitude. There are numerous YouTube videos that explain calibrations etc that will certainly make it easier for you to control. It is fun though, I look forward to flying it every chance I get and yeah, I am 60 years old. Get a spare battery though (don't order one until you see what connectors are on YOUR drone)

I purchased my Syma X8C shortly after Christmas. This is my first quad copter and it has been fun. I have flown it in calm conditions and winds up to 15 miles per hour. It is very responsive. It seems to be durable. I have made several hard landings and suffered no real damage. I noticed that after a hard landing, the drone often will not respond to controls. I will turn off the drone and the remote then turn them back on again and it seems to reboot the system. It operates fine afterward. The only issue is the camera. Most of the videos are poor quality. If you are looking at something close then it is adequate. You have to hold the drone still while filming or the video is bouncing all over the sky. I would recommend it to a friend. It is a great one to learn on.

A vey impressive large quad! I flew it in a mild wind and it held up! As a beginner, I appreciate the steady hover and relatively slower speeds. Don't get me wrong, this thing is fast from my perspective! Once again, speaking from the perspective of a beginner, the camera is fun and good enough. If you're looking to film anything other than recreationally, get a different camera, it will carry it. It is very solid too! I crashed it into a tree and it dropped about 20 feet to the grass and showed very little wear. New parts are cheap and readily available. This is worth the money and I would recommend it over the x5c if your are looking for an outdoor quad. Although I have not flown the x5c I have done extensive research and think this is the better choice. Also, the flips are amazing and headless mode and the second speed add new levels of difficulty to continue to practice and challenge yourself with. Highly recommend!

Very user-friendly- I have had a blast using this drone! A large, open area is a must when you are first learning. Takes some time to get used to the controls, but the size and durability of the product makes crash landing not an issue. The plastic pieces are very flexible, but will break if the drone falls on a hard surface or from a great height. Go ahead and order the replacement blade guards, blades, and legs when you order this drone, especially if you are a novice flyer. It doesn't hurt to have extra! The controller is a bit difficult to get used to, but the manual has fairly clear instructions about how to fly the quadcopter. Mostly, it will be trial and error until you are comfortable. The battery life says it is 7 minutes, but actually lasts much, much longer! A pleasant surprise. Can't beat the price for a drone of this size, quality, and accessibility for new users. Highly recommend!
July 25, 2017
Recommend as a heavier drone that isnt gonna break the bank, easily customizable, decent flight time and great range!! if you dont like the camera you can either make modifications to it that are simple and effective, or you can attach a different style of camera such as go pro or Polaroid cube camera. Perfect for battling strong winds and propellers are very durable. Im a careful pilot so i never fly around people or close to cars I can hit and Ive crashed this copter plenty of times and it still flies real well. I recommend flying without the landing gear when on grass once youve mastered the drone and landing on grass gently also taking off prop guards eventually. Also get a 2nd battery!

This is a good camera quad to learn on. Easy to control and big enough to see if you want some altitude shots. It's fun to fly around but Its not really a speed flyer. There are other quads better suited for people who want to do aerobatics and high speed stuff: This is a beginner's camera platform. It requires lots of space so not suitable for beginners in urban environments. Stands up to light to moderate winds much better than a smaller, lighter, less powerful quad. The camera is not great but ok, great to learn on and to learn panning, lining up shots and angles and so forth. Gives you a chance to learn the quad and some ariel photography before strapping on an expensive camera.

My husband is retired and has time on his hands for hobbies on the off hunting season. He loves mechanical things. He was a race car driver in his youth and his livelihood was modifying and working on vehicles from motorcycles to motorhomes. But since he spent a lifetime on that sort of thing it is like work to him so those projects aren't as interesting. Well not knowing if he would like this I figured it was worth the risk to try it out since the out of pocket was under $100. Was he ever surprised and it didn't even occur to him that he would like this. The learning curve was there, but that was the fun part. It was a challenge. It was fun to test out in the house, and then graduate to the out doors. Next it was all the science behind the wind factors, and the balancing acts of keeping it in the air. Parts are reasonable when needed, and now he is a wiz at flying it. He loved the challenge and reads in depth about it, watches youtubes and is constantly taking on new challenges. It has been 2 months now playing around with it and he asked my how I came up with such a unique idea that he would love. I really couldn't say how I knew he would love it, but I sure am glad! It keeps him active and busy.

This thing is easy to get up and running and I found the controls very intuitive. Pretty easy to operate but its best done in a clear field without trees or you will get it stuck in there as it can fly very high and the up/down control accelerates/de-accelerates quickly. The only negative mark would be that the instructions aren't the best in terms of assembly, in particular no where in the book does it tell you that there are two types of blades (A and B) and that they have to be matched to the right rotor-arm (A or B). IT says this in big letters on the box but not in the instructions so initial assembly was not functional until we looked online and found out about the different blade models. Otherwise, very happy with it. Syma includes several extra blades, which is nice of them.

Definitely a tough quad. I've crashed it multiple times at full throttle and only replaced one prop. Don't get discouraged if the trim is off after a crash you will be able to bring it to a stable hover with just a few adjustments. This is my first quad and I've flown it hard and tried to test it and I'm very pleased, haven't even used the headless mode yet although I'm sure its great. Get at least three batteries and you can fly for 45 minutes plus it takes a little time to trim it after major crashes 😂. I even gave this quad 5 stars and the camera won't hardly work but I didnt buy it for the camera I bought it for the size and stability. You have to control this drone the whole time your flying there's no gps or return to home which will teach you how to stay better oriented while your flying. It will fly high enough and far enough to get out of sight, not a good choice, but that's the range it has. The power of the quad is great I taped a cell phone, in it's case, to the quad to video and it flew perfectly fine although when the batteries get low its time to land don't run them all the way down. Buy it fly it crash it!!!!

Let me first start by saying that I am a Phantom 3 owner. There are some similarities (size, forward acceleration in rate 2 but certainly not speed, and some GENERAL flight characteristics) but not many. That being said, comparing those 2 quads is apples to oranges. I love this quad! I bought this for 2 reasons, first, I wanted something more "disposable" for aerial shots that may be too risky for me to risk losing a $500 quad. The second is, I wanted something similar in size to help me learn how to fly my phantom more efficiently and smoothly. I can honestly say that this is the best way to spend $50 in this hobby. It is completely worth it, I've even considered buying a second just to have on hand. As an added note the flight time is much longer than 7 minutes, it more like 10+. I will be doing a YouTube review on this quad in the next month or so along with a camera upgrade and anti jello mount. Be sure to keep an eye out for it on my channel: Average Guy Reviews As for the camera I didn't find it to be as bad as others have claimed. The jello was definitely there, but it was minimal comparably speaking. This is my 5th camera quad (excluding the Phantom 3) and it has solid video quality when compared to other toy grade quads. knowing what I know now I would have bought extra batteries as it takes a lifetime to charge (roughly 3 hours). Overall though 5 solid stars! This quad exceed my expectations and shipping was quick and on time (thank you seller! You will definitely be seeing return business from me).
