Well, they say third time's the charm, and in this case they were right. I bought this at the beginning of December for my son who was turning 16 on December 22nd. The first one took a nose dive to the right, every time he tried to fly it. The second one blew a motor the second time he flew it. The one we are on now seems to be doing fine. Now, I have not personally flown it, nor do I understand anything other than, it's a quad copter and my son loves it. I specifically picked one because he had never flown one before. I would say it's a great starter, and I love that he can see it's point of view through his phone. Super cool!

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.

Bought this quadracopter for my 11 year old son for Christmas. So far it has exceeded my expectations. The product is packaged very nicely so it looks great as soon as it is opened. There is some assembly required but it was pretty simple, only took a few minutes. The directions included aren't a great translation but they are still clear enough to follow easily. After a very brief instruction I handed the controller to my son, he figured out the controls very quickly. It flies really well and is very easy to control. After flying it several times throughout the day he had gotten quite good at it. The WiFi video feed was my biggest concern, I was pleasantly surprised. The unit paired easily to the IPhone and the App is very simple and straightforward. The video as it flies is quite clear and I did not experience any buffering or skipping. We haven't tried taking a video yet but snapped off a few nice aerial pictures of our house. Like most of the reviews say, you will want to buy extra batteries. I bought 2 more and may want to get a couple more. The flying time is fairly short so it is nice to have batteries ready, they are very quick to change. The time to charge them is lengthy so that is where you want to have extras.

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.

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.

I just received this little guy today and I am very impressed with this thing. It flies great, the camera is good quality, and it is very easy to control. I love how it can perform acrobatics and fpv for such a low price. I would highly recommend this product. My only complaint is that when i received my unit, the propellers wete a little scratched and dirty as if it had been used prior to me receiving it, and for that it receives 4 stars. I also don't like tye the 2hour charge time for a 5 minute flight time. Would recommend extra batteries as well. But definitely get this product!

I don't know why the same model in white color costs more, they both do the same, I had one in white but after crashed behind a fence I lost the drone, somebody tooked, so it is very important to fly this in an open space like a big parking lot, inside a big auditorium like the ones in high schools if you can do it would be the best option to practice since the wind is no problem and no way to lose the drone of course don't do it when there is an event in progress, also I recommend to start practicing your first flights with the headless mode on and the speed to the lowest, with no camera attached, then when you get familiar to control the drone you'll be ready to fly even over the beach !, don't forget to buy extra batteries.

Great fun to fly. Good entry level drone. It's very responsive and has plenty of power. The drone itself is great fun to fly and stable in most winds. You have be a little careful in the wind as it's light and gets pushed around a bit. Especially above 10 MPH. If it's windy, I suggest the headless mode as it's easier to control. I can attest to its toughness and durability as I have done my fair share of crash tests. Not intentionally! Initially, I was disappointed in the ability to access the photos and transfer them to my main computer, but I found I didn't have my settings set up properly to allow the photos to be transferred properly. Once I properly set up the settings in my iPhone, everything was fine

I gave it 4 stars because its sweet and handles nice but its range is less than my older white one. Horizontally I start loosing control at 60 ft.. Virtical control seems to be quite a bit further. To be fair, I've never tried it in an open field away from residential housing. Maybe strong Wi-Fi interference? Hey, for beginners and us "few steps above beginners" its a lot of fun! Now, if I can just get Syma to send me "free" (LOL) upgraded antennas I'll be even more happy!! The camera is not for professionals but its still good enough to have fun with....

This is my second quad chopper ... I really like this one over the other ... very responsive and great pics and videos with the iPhone attached. If I were to list some deficiencies, it would be that the chopper is still a little too light to fly in any real wind conditions and second .. good thing it comes with extra batteries. Each of the included batteries has about 5 - 7 minutes of fly time. I also bought an additional battery with "more" life - it lasts about 10 - 12 minutes. I wish they could make a battery that would give at least a solid 15 - 20 minutes of flying.

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.

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)!
