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 quadcopter is great for a beginner and someone looking to learn. It is not HD don't expect it, but the camera is actually pretty awesome. It even streams to your phone! It is worth the money, and I love mine. As long as I'm not near water and a lot of trees I would teach a six year old with it. It's not meant for racing, though it can be pretty fast. Before you do anything read the instructions about how to trim it and make sure you understand it and do it before you fly. Other than that Syma's are excellent for the price. I would highly recommend it.

Great drone for money. I have to say I have actually bought three. Bought one for my nephew and lost it in woods after first 30 minutes range and altitude better than I imagined and we got it to high and wind got it. It is very light and will be a battle in the wind. It done so good I ordered him another and bought myself one. Very durable have crashed into building, trees and a very hard ground impact that only bent a prop. Recommend extra batteries I bought the 1100mA that barely fits in battery compartment and hard to get out but I have got up to 20 minutes of flight time. One thing I liked was you can replace any part of drone for a few dollars. Camera does a great job on photos and videos.

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.

Everything that came in the box was what I expected. Setup was easy. Took about 20 min, including downloading the app to the iPhone. I bought it for my 6 year old son, so I didn't want to spend a lot knowing it could all end with one crash. I couldn't even believe that a box that size could get from China to the States for the purchase price alone. The only semi-issue is that it is shipped out of China by a Chinese shipping company. Somehow the shipping co. Doesn't share data w Tomtop like a stateside purchase does. The only date I got was at checkout, and it said that it would be delivered in 3 weeks.. To my surprise (and more importantly my sons!!) it showed at the door 5 business days later. The instructions are easy to follow, with little arbitrary Chinese translation. Flights are roughly 5 min per battery, and batteries take 30-45 min to charge. The controls are intuitive, my son had it down in about 6 tries. It's a pretty awesome bang for the buck, and seems pretty rugged so far. It's hit the ground surprisingly hard and survived. The crashes we're definitely attributed to pilot error.. My boy just cuts the lift completely sometimes.. Till it bounces off the ground. The camera system works seamlessly with and old iPhone 5 we use for the camera screen & wifi app. It's not streaming high definition for sure, but my boy is blown away that he can record flights and take pics of the neighborhood. You're not gonna get gopro level footage, but it's hardly a gopro camera. It's definitely a worthwhile buy for the first time flyer. I can't remember if there is a option to buy more batteries, but if there is, that's the only change I'd make. We got 3, and with crashes and battery changes, you end up at around a half hour experience. It's plenty for me, but not for a 6 year old.

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

OK before I start the review please note that my legs, screwdriver and phone clip were taped under the inner packaging, check here before you send it back for missing parts!! As for the drone, I got this to allow me to learn to fly a drone prior to investing in a more expensive drone and for that reason it is great. I have been flying this the last two days, have hit quite a few things and it has not done any damage to the drone, even got some interesting video. Now with a bit of practice I can take off fly around the back yard and land again on the table on the patio with no issues. The drone is very light and can be affected by the wind but is generally very easy to learn to fly. Have some fun and enjoy this quad copter.

I got mine stuck in the tree first day I got it. Don't give up and try to get it down. It started raining while I tried getting it down and I did not give up. I almost gave up and ordered a Syma x5c-1, wanted both anyway. I finally got a long pole from my maintenance guy, and after 10 throws up into the tree I nailed it and it fell down. One of the guards cracked, but that was it. I let it dry and charged the battery. I now have a x5c-1 and x5sw. The x5c-1 is easier to fly and control, but just remove the camera from the x5sw and you get the same experience. The camera is heavier on the x5sw than the x5c-1. Hope this helps.
December 15, 2017
Received the Syma X5SW as an early Christmas gift today. I took it to work at the firehouse to try it out. We had great fun learning cool tricks and such. The range is listed as 50 meters. We took it out at night to see the pretty lights on it. I know it was at least 200 meters away when I lost the signal. We then watched as it blinked happily into the treeline and out of sight never to be seen again. This in spite of a search party of professionals. It worked great and was a lot of fun. I quickly reordered and hope it gets here before my wife realizes it is among the missing. The moral is this: Don't listen to co-workers to see how high and far it will go. Peer pressure can be a bad thing.

This surprised me for the price it is a fun quad. Pros 1. Powerful and responsive 2. Camera with wifi fpv is awesome 3. Durable I have crashed it pretty hard and is still in one piece Cons 1. Very light weight so even a little wind makes it more difficult to fly 2. Short battery life I recommend buying extra batteries All in all for the price it is a fun little drone great for beginners like me . Update: i have had this for more than 3 months now and it has held up well taking a beating and still flies like a champ.

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.

Bought this quad copter for my husband and it has far exceeded our expectations for the price. It is easy to control ( if you are familiar with flying other RC toys) and it maneuvers smoothly ( assuming it's not windy). This thing does front flips, barrel rolls and sores to unexpected heights. The one drawback is that the camera will cut out before the max height is reached. (Maybe 250ft?!?) camera quality is superb for this price range, we bought all accessories including extra batteries bc this is just too much fun for 10 minutes of flying to 2 hour charge.

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.

Took awhile for it to just be shipped but then arrived quickly after it was shipped. However; what a great beginner quad drone for the price. It has a lot of professional functions and it's tough. It has already been taking a beating due to my beginner flight skills. The battery has a longer life than expected for being so small. It lasts about 10-15 minutes without the camera plugged in and 5 minutes with the camera plugged in. That is half the time that a $1000.00 drone runs so it's pretty good. I recommend getting extra batteries. Warning! Do NOT fly this outdoors until you are comfortable with all functions and piloting this drone. It does NOT do well with wind present. I have been playing with it outside and the slightest wind will carry it away. If you remove the blade guards( not recommended for beginners), camera and legs, it will do much better. But still gets carried off by any wind. I have almost lost it twice now. If it gets out of range from your controller, it will just keep going. So pay close attention to it. Comes with extra blades. Thank goodness bc you will need them once you have beat this thing up learning how to fly. I have friends with very expensive drones and even they marvel at how well this drone works for its size and price. It's great for indoors and low altitude outdoor operation. Over 20ft up in the air is dangerous and you risk losing it. One gist of wind and it's gone.

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)!

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.
