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.

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

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!

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.

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)

Got this for my husband for Christmas. He was so excited. The packaging was great and professional. One of the main things I was looking for was an afordable "full size" Quad copter. This unit fits the bill. He now hooks up his go pro to the unit and it still flies well. It is easy to control and with with 4 gyros it stays stable. If you're just starting out there is a learning mode to assist with flight. There is a low and high mode for speed and even in low it's pretty darn fast. It's been easy to find replacement blades, guards and extra batteries. Over all this is a wonderful unit to start with for a great price.

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!

Great quad copter for the money. Far from a toy but not quite pro grade. Very durable but I would also suggest extra blade guards, blades and a battery or two along with an extra charger for more fly time. If this is your first, although it is durable, you will crash it so, the extra blade guards at the minimum is highly suggested. Shipping was very fast with Prime. Nice cam with pretty good video and pics. Can easily be upgraded with GoPro type cam if desired. Nice flip ability ( 3D Eversion) in High mode at about 50 feet in the air. Can fight a pretty descent wind although it will drift. Headless mode works nicely but keep in mind how to quickly reacquire it if necessary. Trimming is easy to do in non windy conditions. Suggest starting by flying from point A to point B the back again. Only place to go from here as far as quality up.

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!

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.

Just as the review headline says; you can't beat this quad for the price. Quad is stable in the air and will easily lift up to a GoPro sized camera if modded. Many reviewers online have nothing but good things to say. Some complain of slow yaw rate but if you are planning on taking some aerial photos you don't need it. Camera that comes with quad is also pretty much worthless. But I modded my quad with carbon fiber anti-vibration plate and use a sports camera. Works great! Some say this quad isn't for beginners. I have never flown a quad but have some experience with to copters. I thought it was an easy transition. But that may not be true for everyone. I have a white quad so I actually order black replacement landing gear, props and guards and use in the back of the quad. Was a great training to getting use to orientation changes. I would recommend this quad over others of similar price.

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.

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.
