    YOU WILL CRASH THIS DRONE. Let's face it, anybody who has owned a drone before will know that they have crashed at least one. From my experience: Once I started to get better at it, I started to get riskier (i.e. seeing how high it could go). After accelerating the drone to full speed and to maximum height level, I evidently lost signal and had no control over the drone. It flew into a nearby road and a car proceeded to clip it, many of the parts still remain intact but the drone itself is totaled. Before I crashed this drone, it was a nice beginner drone. Hard to get it calibrated at first but it became easier with practice. In summary, to make your first drone last as long as possible 1) Know the range of the controller 2) Make sure you have it calibrated VERY well 3) Observe the weather, the wind can blow this thing one way or another and there is nothing you can do about it if it blows into a tree or other structure 4) An open area is the best site for flying, don't risk flying it in areas that are not wide-open Also, changing the battery can get annoying. You have to unscrew every time if you want to change the battery (put in a fully charged one and keep flying), otherwise flight time can range for a good 6-7 minutes. Good drone for beginners, will likely buy a different model, but I have no regrets buying this product.

    I own several quads but was looking for an inexpensive rig that I could use to teach new drone pilots. This is a great starter drone! The FPV camera works well but it is low resolution. For the price I cannot complain. It flies stable and should be easy enough to handle for newcomers. Once you get it dialed in and trimmed, it will hover without much effort. If you are new I would recommend installing the blade guards, it will save you from damaging some props. I would have given this unit 5 stars but the FPV video was all blurry and out of focus. I was able to dissemble the camera and adjust the focus by turning the lens clockwise which great improved the video quality. It weighs only a little more than 4 ounces so you won't have to register it. I recommend buying a couple extra batteries and if possible upgrade them to 700 mah from the stock 500 mah batteries. This will give you a little more zip and flight time.

    This is my second brand of serious TOY grade quads. I have two Holy Stone / Stytech M68R quad. Purchased the Syma due to the first person perspective (FPP) mode since I could better control the movie / photo mode. THE GOOD: FPP does work. It has a high capacity battery for more flight time. THE BAD: The appears to be less stable than the M68R. The video quality is lower than the camera on the M68R. NOTES: Vid and stills saved on pad / phone not on the aircraft. There can be a steep learning curve flying FPP if you have been flying by viewing the quad.

    Great to learn with. Use propguards till ready. Fly over grass to prevent concrete smacks. The headless mode is great to prevent you from losing your quad if to cant tell front from back at distance. The video has a slight jello quiver but its good for fpv at this price. You can upgrade the camera but its not worth it when you can buy the quad that goes with it. Ive flown it high and far till its just a speck and got lost in which way was forward. I switched to headless mode n bought it back. There is a 6 battery n charger deal out and an upgraded battery. Both are worth it. Theres new 3 bladed props out that make it fly smoother n faster. Good introductory quad. Later buy another set of motors because when one goes out its useless. Dont b afraid to patch this up yourself. I tried this with a offbrand wifi cam velcroed to the bottom and got great results. At 55 bucks you can try stuff...take some risks and not feel like you busted the bank if you crash. It does flips and youtube has a wealth of stuff for whatever you want to try. Avoid getting close to trees. Once your hung up in one may sit there a while. Next i hav to learn how to make those video inside a video flight recordings.

    Great little starter drone, it was my first as an entry into the hobby. It has sustained some serious crashes (I have done a range mod, and it can go far enough to barely see it...) and all I have replaced on it is a single motor. I got it stuck in a tree branch on a windy day; had to fight with it to flip out of the branch and one motor must have been caught on the branch. It finally flipped out about 10 minutes later and obviously one wing wasn't spinning from bad motor. I ordered some replacements (actually got the smaller X5 first, then ordered correct X5SW motors as the x5 are 7mm and x5sw are 8mm) and soldered in the new one. It flew Great, right off. The second big crash was from about 300 meters the wind picked up and blew it 3 houses away into their backyard (it crashed upside down, I couldn't see it after wind blew it into backyards).. I went and retrieved it and no issues flew it back home. Bottom line is: It's very sturdy for a beginner to bash, If you do break it any repair part you'll need is less than 12$; and it definitely can teach you fly and have a great time doing it.

    So far so good. Santa brought one of these to each of my sons. They were easy to assemble. The instructions are poorly organized and translated from the original Chinese. I had to teach myself to fly them before I could let the boys fly them. They are not so easy to control at first so take them to a park a couple of times for practice before flying them in your driveway. Battery life is about 10 minutes per flight. Charge time for the batteries is about an hour. When the drone strikes the groud it will automatically switch from headless mode to standard. You'll have to re-calibrate the drone using the controller again. This isn't cumbersome but kind of a pain to have to repeat.

    PROS:This is a good quadcopter for the price, it is somewhat easy to fly and as soon as the package arrives and you charge the battery you can begin flying. It came with a camera that was not HD but still worked well. It was pretty nice to see the picture from the quad as you fly it. I would suggest (If you are an experienced flyer) to take off the landing gear and the blade protectors, it will fly better for sure. The controller clip on for your phone is very handy. CONS: The connection is terrible, as soon as you go beyond about 30-40 feet it will begin being downright uncontrollable and by then you will just have to let it drop and hope for the best. Like all drones it is very easy to break. Probably not a good toy for a child under 8 (unless they're Einstein Junior😉.) I actually could not change the trim, which was very annoying. It's still decently sturdy though, it can withstand a small amount of rough play. Tip, I would definitely recommend purchasing on the side 5 spare noipisi batteries and a 6 battery charger for $17.50

    This is a great starter drone at a really good price. Comes with three batteries. Each one takes about 1.5 hours to charge and runs for 5-10 minutes. Pros: Cheap and fun. Not hard to assemble. Comes with extra propellers. Almost every part is replaceable with the included screwdriver. Cons: This drone does not perform well in wind; even a light breeze will blow it away. We have not yet had a day that was still enough to really put it through its paces. It works well indoors (still drifts a little, but the fine-tuning controls seem to help). It is not easy to fly (I'm a beginner). It supposedly has a "headless mode", but I haven't gotten it to work. I can't get the camera to connect to the app, so FPV, pictures and video are non-functional (I'm hoping to have more success in a remote area with less ambient WiFi signals). The parts are cheap plastic--after only a couple of days (and many crashes) one of the propeller guards is broken.

    This Quad is an excellent beginner's training step towards larger more complex models. The pitch and yaw axis leave a bit to be desired for more experienced flyers but once again for a beginner (and for the price) you will find it hard to find anything to compare it to. The quad is also very durable for its size and price range. I've let my 7yr old fly it around and he gave it a few fairly heavy bumps and it came through with hardly a scratch. They send several spare parts with the package but honestly.....I haven't had to repair/replace much...just a drive gear which kept slipping...and I fixed that with CA. The only real complaint I have is in the radio range, get it to high/far from you and it seems to want to drop out of the sky but levels off once back in range.Overall this would be an excellent first quad and I'd recommend it to anyone...as a matter of fact I already have.

    E' un drone che si guida abbastanza facilmente. Partendo da zero o quasi come me, servono circa 2 ore per acquisire una certa dimestichezza. Purtroppo mi è arrivato senza wifi camera (motivo principale dell'acquisto), ho contattato Tomtop e spero di risolvere in qualche modo al più presto. Ritornando al drone posso dire che è abbastanza semplice la taratura del radiocomando. Non mi sono sembrati sufficientemente robusti i para eliche mentre ottimo mi è il supporto per l'atterraggio. Consiglio assolutamente almeno altre 4 batterie in modo da garantirsi una quarantina di minuti di utilizzo (la batteria standard dura circa 7-8min e la ricarica circa 2 ore!).

    After returning a DOA Syma X5SW-V3 a couple of weeks ago to , I jumped at the price drop on this Syma X5SW distributed by Cool Stuff Place (the X5SW-V3 was from another distributor). This second generation style X5 has nicer plastic and body shape than the X5C that I also have. I hooked up the landing gear, propellor guards and FPV camera - the screws for the propellor guards did not work with the provided screwdriver; I used my own slightly larger Philips screwdriver. The enclosed screwdriver worked fine with the propellor guard and controller battery compartment screws. Connected to the Syma app which is mainly for photographing, video recording and FPV viewing. The quadcopter's WiFi signal showed on my iPhone after about 45 seconds - so be patient. Flew it indoors (this body style is reported widely to have issues outdoors). Throttle and rudder control worked ok and was responsive. There was a slight sideways and forward drift which would not trim out, but more annoying was the drifting yaw which I could not trim out fully. I got about 5 minutes of flight time from a full battery - with FPV on.

    Got this as a gift for my son. We love taking it out and learning how not to crash. It's lightweight and can take a beating. It comes with a small battery that will only give you about 10 min of flight time when using the camera. If you disconnect that it doubles. If you buy a bigger battery you can increase it further. With a 600mah battery I got from here I can get about 15-20 min flight time without the camera. Picking up some spare parts especially rotors is also a good idea. The LED's on the bottom indicate the power status and begin to flash if the power is getting low giving you time to bring it down slowly and safely. This model is not really designed for beginners simply because it take time to learn how to properly control and fly these. We made it work and had loads of fun doing it but in retrospect we would've been better off starting with something smaller to get the hang of it first.

    I was expecting a FPV version of the X5C, but this is a scaled down version of the X8C, and it's great. First, this is a toy, so it needs to be approached as a toy, not a real FPV system. Secondly, if you're running the camera, your range on the quadcopter will only be about 30m. There's a ton of interference created by the camera in 2.4g and it dramatically reduces control range (which is fine!)--the FPV is a little tricky to get everything running, but it works reasonably well, and it's fun to give your phone or tablet to someone as you fly. The delay in image transmission makes it really pretty impossible to pilot the aircraft via FPV, but it's still a fun toy and the streaming video signal is quite strong for such a little transmitter. If you take the camera off, range increases to more than you need, and this is a fun, stable, responsive little quad. It does seem to be a little more prone to the standing vortex effect during rapid decent than other quads. All in all, this is a great toy and trainer for anyone interested in flying drones. I'm going to buy another one.

    My son wanted a drone...well we got his one, I wanted to get one a little larger that felt a little more substantial (and still do) but my wife said NO! Out of choice I Would get one of the parrots but soo much money....Anyway, we purchased this and it's a ton of fun. I'm still getting used to flying this but it is really stable in flight, relatively easy to fly. Video quality is ok too. I'm not going to win any academy awards with my cinematography but the image is clear and it serves the purpose for what we wanted it for. One of the dislikes is the flight time. It only lasts a few minutes on a single charge and then you have to wait until the battery recharges. So in theory this should be a negative but to be fair this is an issue with all drones. The batteries need to be small and light to make it a viable drone. So the draw back is the short flight time, since "small battery=light=short flight time". So the reason I didn't ding it a star or two was the availability of the batteries. I purchased a set of four batteries with charger for less than a pack of "bunny" AA batteries. This now gives us some considerable flight time without having to pay $$$ for it. Replacement parts are readily available, and cheap. There are sites devoted into customizing these little drones with better batteries, cameras, motors and how to increase operating range etc. So when you add all this up it's hard to not give this 5 stars for the money. Get out there and have some fun!

    The Syma X5SW is very similar to the X5C, but its circuit has been enhanced and the case is thicker to accomodate better the camera and the battery. It is an excellent second-step quadcopter to learn how to pilot one. First one must be comfortable using a non-FPV, then upgrade to an FPV. So often pilots make mistakes in handling and crashing them because of weak 3D visualization (where is really your quadcopter in space). I ordered it in black color, but I found the blade guards were all white, so I grabbed a can of bright black plastic paint and made it all black. A monolayer of paint is enough. It also came with the RC control identical to the X5C but with a smartphone clip holder, a small screwdriver, extended landing legs, a set of spare propellers, and of course, no memory. FPV depends on your smartphone and an app. The IOS app is at the AppStore, but the Android version must be downloaded from the Syma site (www.symatoys.com). Syma does not tell the Android version it will work -too bad-. I tried to install it in an older phone with Android 4.0.3 and the app did not unpack, not matter what you do. I tried to install it in another slightly older phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) with Android 4.4.2 and it installed and worked properly. I also tried an old tablet with Android 4.1.1 and installed it but it does not work all the time. Once the Syma FPV is installed in your smartphone, I got a clear and crisp image (720p) on my phone screen. The app has the options to take a snapshot, to save the video (there is no memory card in the camera like in the X5C), to play it back, and an icon to show the WiFi signal level. You do not control the X5SW with the smartphone, smartphone screen is only your video window; you must use the RC controller. To use the quadcopter outside, I made a shade by cutting a black plastic document folder to cover the smartphone screen (see photo, to the left of the quadcopter), that way it blocks the sun shine and you also must adjust the brightness of the phone's screen. For now, it seems like an excellent choice for next-step beginners. And remember not to operate these quadcopters on top of people, any moment a motor can fail and the plastic propeller can cause an unwanted accident (not as hard as it happened to pop singer Enrique Iglesias!). Always install the propeller guards when using it with people and pets nearby. Will post developments as we use it in real adventures.

    great beginner quad, perfect size! I think this is a better beginner than the hubsan and is MUCH more sturdy and holds up to crashes well. I've had two hubsans and they both broke on the first light crash. this one has withstood many light crashes without a scratch. the prop guards have been worth their weight in gold. it flies well and hovers well. i will say if you use this outside there better be very minimal to no wind as it's too light to handle more than 1mph wind or so. the fpv feature is nice and works pretty good as a novelty but i still think flying the old school way is easier and better. the camera is not that great but serves it's purpose well enough. It is NOT HD and since it's wifi, it cuts our periodically. battery lasts about 5 minutes or so... do yourself a favor and buy some extra batteries. the instructions are not that helpful... as a matter of fact they are quite hilarious and obviously written by a chinese national as the grammar and some of the terms are off base. overall, this thing is great and i recommend for beginners. .

    This is a great beginner copter. It is very simple to fly and operate. The video on the quad is adequate but you won't be taking wedding photos with it. The linking to the phone is simple and quick. The application which they provide is also user friendly. I liked the weight of the quad. It is light enough to fly inside and also strong enough to fly outside. The parts, motors, guards, batteries etc, are very easy user replace. This copter is EXCELLENT for those younger kiddos who want to fly with Daddy (or Mommy) but aren't as skilled as they need to be for the bigger ones. If they crash (and they will) and something breaks, parts are readily available all over the internet and are very inexpensive.

    This is my second quad-copter. The first with a camera. I have a few issues with it, but overall I like it. One issue is the battery - Li-ion - as we all know these type of batteries get extremely hot while in use (discharging), and can combust if not handled properly. The second is flight time. The book says five and a half minutes. I found that if I remove the camera I get over six minutes. The last issue is recharging time - two and a half hours! So I get maybe a five minute flight a day as the USPS will NOT allow the batteries I tried to order in their inept mailing system, therefore I don't have any spares. I am overlooking the bad English translation of the instruction manual which is sometime funny and sometimes confusing. Also, I have an Android phone and had to have an expert unblock the Syma website so I could download and install the WIFI app. Hint; If you have an Android Phone, scan the QR code on the box, NOT the one in the manual. I intend to call Amazon and Cheerwings in the near future to attempt to find out if there is a NiMh battery out there that can power this one as my last quad-copter used those type and they performed very well until one of the irreplaceable motors seized up. Overall, this is a very fun bird to fly, and I intend to fly it a lot more once I get some spare batteries for it. I do recommend it as a first time drone flyer as it is not that expensive. I also recommend getting the spare parts set as well (I am prone to "bumping" into things with it)!

    My wife got me this for Christmas for my first drone. What I have learned over 30 flights since: This is an awesome quad for the money and for beginners. It took me a second to get the trim set out of the box. Also took me a while to get the hang of flying it. The learning curve was pretty easy though. You will want to buy extra batteries for it especially when using the camera. I suggest buying at least 680mah batteries. Flying is awesome but the range is limited. There is a mod you can do adding a wifi antenna to the controller that allowed me to make it go around 500ft. Well worth doing. It goes so far up now that I can't even see it. I suggest taking off the prop guards when you get better at flying. It makes the control so much better. The camera is bad. It has FPV but I really don't need it. I thought I wanted it but it's not much benefit to me. It has a slight lag and the recorded video is blurry and not close to HD. The app works great and I like that but I am ditching the stock camera for a 808 keychain cam. I at least want HD and the lighting struggles on the stock cam. Going back and looking now I would be better suited with the X5SC. Another thing with the FPV cam is it cuts the range on the copter and allows dropouts because it's on 2.4ghz also and they interfere. If you unplug and remove the camera, the battery will go about 7-8 minutes. I'll put some sample pics from high up. Overall this is a great drone for the money. This will let me get good enough at flying before upgrading to a hobby quad.

    For the money, this is the best camera quadcopter for under $100 dollars. For anyone trying to get into the hobby or just learning to fly, this platform is easy to learn on and durable enough to take a few "dives". I've been nothing but impressed with its quality even though it's made in China. The free app works with both the Droid and OS systems and is user friendly. All data collected from the quad is stored on the enabled device you're using, so no memory cards. The quality of video is to be expected for its size and there is no audio. Landing gear is flimsy and I've already broken one. Would recommend that if you get this quad, you also invest in extra batteries and spare parts. Flight time is longer if you're not recording with the camera.....about 5-8 minutes total. It has a high and low mode; low being best for video, high for windy days. It can also do flips. Not recommended for use in the house although if you're good enough at the controls you can fly in large rooms. Charge time on the battery is about an hour. With the included USB charger, an old cell phone charger works great....I don't think plugging it into the computer is a good idea, especially to charge. It's a great product and I recommend it highly.
