    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.

    I got this as a "toe dip" into quad flying. I used to fly RC Planes years ago and didn't keep up-to-date. This is definitely a "toy drone" versus some much more high end units. Still a fun way to fly. I would definitely suggest getting the DJI Legs Summitlink® Black Tall Extended Landing Gear for DJI Phantom 1 2 Vision Wide and High  to get some added height. I then did the "chopstick" mod of adding some chop sticks to make the feet wider. This helps in landing and not tipping over. While it is an inexpensive way to get into drone flying I would say this one that REALLY needs to be "flown" and doesn't just simply hover out the box. You will need to adjust trim and pay attention to wind. I know higher end drones have enough intelligence to handle some of those things but this was the perfect entry back into RC flying.

    cant add much to what has already been said . I think its the best buy for the money due to its size, type battery,I like the fact it uses 7.4 lipos ever one is right you get 7 min before your lights start flashing if you read 12 or better they are flying way past there landing Q I chose to land and not take a chance on damaging my battery .This is my first drone been flying RC for 25 years so my learning curve was short .I think any one that can chew gum and walk can learn to fly this drone if they take it slow , things I didn't like ,Camera but that had been stated in most reviews I tried a action cam with soft mount not much difference blade guards weak if you bump one your blade will hit it. so I took mine off flys better with them off .The charger not much I have a imaxx b6 think I gave 22 dollars at HK takes 45 min with it . all in all its a great buy . if you got the extra cash get extra batterys and charger and go flying .also if you take the blades off make sure to put them back on the right motors it wont fly if you don't LOL

    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.

    I've flow quads for over 4 years and have several. One is well over a thousand dollars. But for $65 this is the biggest bang for the buck you will find. It flew perfectly right out of the box. I do have to say, the instructions leave a lot to be desired...Took me over an hour to figure out how to put the props on . Its unlike anything I've ever dealt with. It flys amazingly well even in a 15 mph wind which I maidened it in today. Never hit a trim button. I had to use the high rate to get it to fly against the wind. I would have given it a 5 star rating or more if the camera would have worked but I didn't buy it for the camera, I have a GO Pro on a F450 for photography. Again, its by far the most stable quad I have other than my F450 with GPS. As soon as the gang saw it fly at the field today, two copied the info and will order themselves one.

    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.

    Great quad for the money. Flies well, stable. Has survived a number of crashed with no major damage. Comes with extra set of props, but have not needed to use them yet. Tip, don't install the prop guards. They are not stiff and end up running into props as they flex. Quad flew much better without them. Camera works OK, has sound as well as video. Image not great, but OK for the money. Controller feels cheap, but seems to work well. Some controls not well labeled (especially camera controls), so it's not as intuitive as it should be. All-in-all, happy with my purchase and would recommend to others getting into the hobby. Buy an extra battery right away, you'll want to fly longer.

    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.

    I bought this to learn how to fly a drone because drone. The first time I flew it I crashed it into a tree. The second time it crashed inverted onto the pavement of the parking lot I was flying it in pretty harshly. I then crashed it into a house. The only ting on it to really brake was one of the propeller guards that I just taped up and now its fine. The video quality isn't good, but its $80 your not paying DJI Phantom money get over it. The only really annoying thing with this drone is how long it takes to charge the battery. I bought the quick charger and it solved that issue. All in all its a real 5/5 for how much you pay for it.

    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!

    This is my first quadcopter. It's a brute. I crashed it several times and other than breaking off the blade protectors,it's really held up. I lost transmission on it today at about 150 feet,it hit tree limbs on the way down to the ground.i just turned it over and kept on flying. It's tough. Camera is not great quality but it's fun to see footage. I bought a go pro mount and it struggled with the weight. Video was great tho. If you are buying for video ,it may be worth stepping up to the dji 3 standard. This is really a stable copter that's a blast to fly I would definitely recommend

    For $50.00 bucks this thing can't be beat. I've had a Syma x5c for a year and a smaller quad before it. Both are great learners, but unstable in anything more than a breeze. I wanted something that could be flown more often and this one has stronge enough motors to fly nicely in low winds. Headless mode is a nice feature. I've never flown headless before and it makes controlling the craft quite easy. The thing feels a bit flimsy, but after a couple of crashes it came out without a scratch. I am pretty impressed. After charging the batteries (3 plus hours) and putting the props and landing gear on (20 minutes) I took it on it's initial flight in the yard. I found it hard to control until I did the fine tuning (good youtube video instructions are available), which helped the drones stability greatly and I now have excellent control. It can't be stated enough that the fine tuning is a must to get the best out of this drone. On my second flight I took it out to the wide open spaces and got it to about 200 feet and got some nice video of the farmland and a close by stream. The camera is just OK, but for just having fun it's fine. This seems roughly the same size of a phantom, one of which I've flown several times, but nowhere near the quality, but for the price, it's a great way to get a similar experience without risking $600.00. So far I am thrilled with this purchase and would definitely recommend it for the hobbyist or someone looking for a trainer before taking the plunge on a more expensive rig. For $50.00 this is a steal.

    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).

    we've had this quadcopter for several months and have gotten a lot of use out of it. It belongs to my 8 yo son who did extensive research (he even read every Amazon comment and knew ahead of time a few important tips and troubleshooting advice) before deciding on this one. We were Leary that it would be appropriate for him or durable but it's been great fun for him! I'll say he has a very high aptitude for anything RC. I'm not sure if all 8 yo could successfully fly it. We purchased 2 spare batteries, which I recommend. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the memory card broke early on (not very durable even for an adult) and my son was always very careful with it. Now I'm having trouble finding a replacement so the camera is of no use right now.
