    This is my first drone. I've had it for about a week and I love it. It's been windy as hell here in Illinois for a while but I have still been able to learn how to fly in 25-30mph winds! You must use high speed mode to fight winds! I recommend learning without wind or inside! I crashed and still crash often but mostly because of wind not because the drone is hard to fly. The drone has held up very well in some pretty scary crashes. My only complaints is the prop guards have bent so badly they started to rub on the props. I have now taken them off. Looks cooler that way anyway. Battery life is super short...I get about 8 minutes. Extra Battery's are pretty inexpensive though. I also had an LED cover break but that was definitely my fault. All parts are on Amazon very cheap! Video quality is pretty good for a cheap little camera....I just bought a gimbal and a yi action camera for it so the video won't be so shaky when turning back and forth. There are lots of YouTube videos on people upgrading them in various ways. I recommend watching them if you want better quality video. Overall I'm very pleased with this (toy). Did I mention my wife loves it too!? She learned how to fly it in the wind quicker than I did! Great drone to learn to fly with! I look forward to buying a more expensive one after flying this for a year or so.

    First drone, its fast and fun, but will make you work to get a good flight. Very crashable and a good survivor. I've flown it about 20 times and we have snow, so that maybe why it has held up so well.The manual is difficult to read. There is a rewrite out there that helps, but some important details are missing. The one thing this drone will teach you is the importance of flight preparation. You need to calibrate after every flight or whenever you turn it or the control unit off. If you do that it works, otherwise it makes no sense. The factory battery pooped out after a deep discharge from spending the night out in a field. You need a couple of aftermarket batteries anyway. I got morpilot and they are slightly stronger. For the money, the camera is not bad and can get some decent shots in 1040 with jello effect. 720 is a bit better. I have not yet gotten it to hover without drifting off and if you get much beyond 200 yards, you can land it or kiss it goodbye. Trim controls are difficult at best. So far it has not stood up to any wind greater than about 5 mph without struggling to make its way home. If you calibrate, fly it low, replace the control batteries and work on your technique you will learn to pilot. If you really want to exercise caution, tie some survey string onto the back struts and fly it like a kite. This way you will live to fly again. On a do over, I would spend more on the first drone. DJI has some good ones that are manually controlled with a return home function.

    By Nicholas Calderone  March 2, 2017

    I remember about 2-3 years ago everyone had remote control helicopters on their Christmas wish list. Since then, it seems that mall kiosks have remote control vehicles and copters throughout each Holiday season. Fast forward to 2016 and it seems that the Quadcopters have replaced the single rotor device. Personally, the helicopters were difficult to control and they did not have very many tricks that they could perform. I have had a few Quadcopters: METAKOO MK-Q01D Mini Drone, H22 Double-sided Inverted Flight Gyro Mini Drone. These are fun little drones, that can fly around your room, hover, flip/roll and once you get good, you can navigate your own little obstacle courses. In fact, my 7-year-old son and I have had flight competitions, which proved to be incredibly fun. One of my friends had the pleasure of flying a Phantom 4 drone and I was ready for one of my own. I was given a Syma X8HG New Drone with HD camera to review. Imagine my excitement when this arrived. This drone is significantly larger than any I have flown previously and has an HD camera. The front of the packaging displays the fire-engine red quadcopter with black trim, with silver HD camera hanging beneath. The copter has 4 legs, 4 blade protectors and has a 500mmx500mm length/width with 190mm height. The front panel also displays a few of the features of the copter: 360 degrees flip stunts, 6 axis gyroscope, Headless mode, flashing LED lights, 2.4GHz frequency, Hover function and HD camera. One side of the packaging displays the title and the other shows the remote control and the features. The remote does have a nontouch LCD screen along the bottom, 2 thumb sticks, high/low-speed function/Head free mode, and trimming buttons. The back of the box is the same as the front of the box. The bottom of the box has technical data to include dimensions as listed ad details the 7.4V 2000 mAh Li-Po battery. There is a QR code along the bottom and the standard product labeling logos. The product requires 4AA batteries which are not included. The packaging is well done and provides a very immediate “OPEN ME NOW” feeling. The best way to compare this is to that feeling on Christmas morning, where the Tasmanian present opening devil comes to life. The side of the packaging is easily opened and a large styrofoam block is removed. The drone is the largest component of the package, followed by the controller. Remove both of these and set them aside. You will also notice the charger, the AC power adaptor in a small box, the plastic wrapped HD camera with pre-installed 4GB MicroSD card, the 2000 mAh LiPo battery, two sets of four rotors, two sets of two legs (beneath the rotors), four rotor guards, the instruction manual, and two zip lock bags of small hardware. In one bag you will find a screwdriver, an extra set of four fan blade covers (locks), a set of four chrome caps and an orange USBA card reader for the MicroSD card. In the other bag, you will find numerous small screws to attach the rotor guards and to attach the legs. This process did take a little bit of time and was a little involved. Like any new toy, the set-up is often the most exciting part. When all the parts were removed, I turned to the manual for installation instructions. I am an enigma in that I like to read instruction manuals. I can often figure out the tech without them, but I also find additional features by reviewing the included instructions. I separated the individual components and removed the bagged components. The manual is a little disjointed with various installation instructions throughout the book. The English appears to be well written, there are some typographical errors. However, it is a good manual. I started by charging the battery as outlined on page I5. It is unfortunate that it takes 200 minutes to charge the 2000mAh LiPo battery. This is a long time to wait for the fun of flying the drone. To charge the device, place the A type plug into the wall, place the AC adapter into the charger and then place the small three position plug to the output end of the charger. You will notice a single red LED without the battery plugged into the charger. When you plug the battery in, you will also notice a Green LED. I completely charged the battery, prior to using this, for the entire 200 minutes. At that point, the LED extinguished. Following page 15 “Steps of fan blades Installation/disassembly of aircraft,” I unscrewed the blade cover, removed the lockstitch, slid off the blade cover added the rotor blade onto the iron shaft and then followed the instructions in reverse. I then added the chrome cap. This was repeated for or each of the four rotor blades. I then installed the safety guards following the instruction on page 6 of the manual. To do this, remove the decorating part and then add in the semicircle guard. There are included hardware screws (I assumed the small head) to attach the safety guards. You can then follow the instruction on page 7 for installation of the legs (Stands). Here, you use two large head screws for each of the stands. The installation is not complicated, it is just time-consuming as you repeat the steps 4x. Lastly, I installed the camera. It comes with a pre-installed 4GB microSD card and plastic casing. Plug the short microUSB cable into the camera and the plug into the base of the aircraft. Once this was set up, I had to hurry up and wait. When the green light was extinguished on the charger, I followed page 11 “Flight preparation and switching off of the aircraft.” Batteries AA x4 (not included) were installed into the remote as per page 3. Again note that the manual jumps all over the place, this is not a linear process. Luckily, I had read the manual before I started to play with the new drone. The manual stresses the importance that you follow the appropriate polarity. I turned the power of the remote to the on position, I opened the battery cover, connected the red to red/black to black connector, gently inserted the wires, closed the housing/fuselage. There is a small toggle underneath the aircraft that was turned to the “on” position, as in step 3. Next, the manual instructs you to press the left thumbstick all the way upwards and then all the way downwards. The lights on the copter changed from quick flashing to continuous/always on. The blades started to rotate after following Step II “Switching no the aircraft.” I assume this meant switching ON the aircraft, but here was one of the typographical errors I mentioned above. I excitedly attempted to fly the quadcopter drone, to complete my review of the device. Alas, the aircraft would not leave the ground. I tried for 45-60 seconds at full power up (left stick up) to fly the copter, but it would not leave the ground. I returned to the manual for assistance. Following step III “Switching off the aircraft,” the rotors stopped spinning. I turned off the drone, turned off the controller, took the battery out and restarted the process. I was unable to get any further activity out of the drone other than solid LED lights inferiorly. The controller batteries were full and the LCD displays full charge. The controller LCD showed the button presses, it appeared to be functioning appropriately. The lights did not flash on the aircraft, repairing of the device was unsuccessful. I repeated this process X 3. After this would not work again, I turned to “Rectification procedures” on page 16 of the manual and reviewed all of these steps. I assumed that it entered into low voltage protection or that the channel selection was not working. I took the battery out (IT WAS COOL to the touch as per the manual). To be safe, I waited 10 minutes for it to cool down further, and then I plugged it into the charger. The Green LED light was illuminated. I am not certain how the battery could have discharged, with at most 60 seconds of use. The drone never crashed, it did not hit anything, as it never left the ground. Page 15 of the manual details “Cautions when charging.” Perhaps the battery has been depleted or waited too long. It seems that the LiPo battery that was included with the device may be defective. I recharged the battery and I waited 180 minutes for the green LED to extinguish. While waiting, I perused the product features on page 12: Low voltage protection, over current protection, level calibration function, 3D overturning function, pressure hovering height adjustment and the headless function. I was honestly most excited for the headless function. When the drone completes matching, it defaults to normal mode. If you hold the left trigger button on the remote you will enter into headless mode, which will let you control the aircraft using the joystick direction. I was unable to initially test the left/right turning, the fine tuning/trimming controls, the left/right side flying the ascending/descending, forward/backward control, or the overturning button to do sideways loops. After the second charging, the pairing worked flawlessly, and pressing up and then middle the rotors hummed to life amazingly. The drone would not leave the ground, however. This quadcopter drone is beautiful, the packaging is amazing and I am super excited for this review. We have reached out to the company, who responded very quickly. The PR of the company seems to be great, responding quickly to the concern with an email. They noted that there are 2 types of rotors for this device. Each rotor is labeled with an A or B and a 1 or 2. There are two sets of rotors but apparently, there are differences in them. If you look closely at the plastic just under the rotor, you will see an A or B there as well. This is not mentioned (that I could find) in the manual and is a step that many may get wrong. Unfortunately, like me, they may feel something is wrong with the device instead of with the install. I had 2 rotors out of place. I corrected this problem, placed the rotors into the correct loci and tried to fly the copter yet again. It worked, and it worked amazingly well. Initially, the copter tended to move to the right and backward. Using the little trim buttons, I was able to get this to hover in place. I was able to take video, to take still shots and the quality of the pictures is quite good. I do not like that I cannot know if the camera is filming or not. There is a red LED on the camera itself that will blink/flash while recording and a green LED that lets you know it is ready. I did not see anything on the controller that lets you know if it is recording or not. For height, I was able to get to about the top of a standard home, before I was uncomfortable with flying the drone. However, to be honest, this was my first flight. This maiden voyage was designed to acquaint myself with the drone, to learn the nuances of the flight. The learning curve is quick. I was able to learn to strafe, to move forward backward, to turn while filming and to control height. Near the end of the first flight, I took the drone higher into the air, about another 10-20 feet above the rooftop of my neighbors home. You will start to notice the lights on the drone flashing. This is warning you that battery power is lapsing. This does not have autoland, it does not have return, it does not have to follow. You will have to fly it back to you, to land. This was not difficult as I did not move much more than about 100 feet from me. I would say that the biggest limitation of this quadcopter is that you must have the line of sight. You cannot see what it sees, you do not know what angle it is flying or which direction is front. Without being able to see the drone, you will not be able to get it back to you. I had 2 events that I had to land it as I could not easily/quickly determine which direction to turn. After about 15 minutes the drone ran out of power and I had to end my maiden flight. I was doing a lot of up and down, a lot of turning, video and snap capture. The charge to flight ratio is a little off with 200 minutes to chart to have 15 minutes of flight. I suspect if you are making mild movements, mild positional changes and allowing hover that you can squeeze another 2-5 minutes out of the device. I again charged the battery for 200 minutes. The next day, my 7-year-old son and I went out to fly the drone again. We really enjoyed the event. Again, we were able to get another 15 minutes out of the battery. I really wish that this drone had 2 features. Second, I wish that it had the ability for you to see which direction it was going or a button that was a return feature. I did increase my flight height to about the top of a tree (flying in my cul-de-sac), about 70 feet in the air. Again, you are limited to line of sight. I was able to do a fly over, I tried this once at about 20 feet in the air. Hold the top right button on the controller and then make a big turn and the helicopter will do a loop. I was too chicken to try this forward or backward. I also have not yet tried the headless mode. That is a much more advanced feature. Summary: The drone packaging is amazing and the product arrives very well packaged. The instruction manual is very well done but needs to be a little more sequential. It is a bit jumpy, meaning you have to move around the book to advance steps. The color is beautiful and the size is just right for a newbie/novice to intermediate flier. I am used to flying the little mini drones and very very small movements make a big deal. This is a little more forgiving. I was initially very disappointed in the drone, thinking it was broken. However, the company responded incredibly quickly and proved to be very helpful. There should be information in the manual about the different blades. I did find information about purchasing additional parts and noted different blade parts. This was the only locus where I found mention of forward/reverse blades. I wish hat there were 2 batteries or that the battery was a little bigger to allow for about 20 minutes of charging. There really needs to be a return feature, but I do not know how difficult that programming would be. At least maintain the height and return to where it took off. Something like that would really make me feel a lot more comfortable. The drone promises a lot of features. The camera imaging is clear, the drone controls are very responsive. There needs to be some way on the controller of knowing if the camera is recording or not. Also, I was able to have 4 full flights out of 4 AA batteries. The battery indicator still shows full charge. My opinion would be to have the controller charge via USB as well to save the environment and reduce the number of batteries needed. The video is much clearer than I thought, but there is a lot of air/rotor noise. The still pictures are very clear as well. I am pleased with the 4 GB included memory card. This really is a good size for this device. The end user can choose to get a larger card if they desire. Personally, with 15 minutes flight time, 4GB is satisfactory. You can set the quality of the picture on the camera, but you have to do this, while grounded. I am pleased with the device and rate it at 4/5 stars. You will not be disappointed with this device. Make sure you put A rotor with A locus and B rotor with B locus. The company was really helpful and speedy with their response. The email really made the difference. 8 MP camera provides great photos and video imaging is quite clear at 1080P.

    I've had an X8G for some time and been very satisfied. Its actually my second one. The first one I kinda flew into a lake learning. I figured the altitude hold on this X8HG would be a good investment. After several days of trying to make it work like the older X8G I'm giving up. The altitude hold worked for two flights. Then I had a small crash. Nothing major, just flipped it over on landing. After that the altitude hold changed. Instead of keeping the Drone at a given altitude it bounces between about 20 feet of altitude now. Up and down, up and down never stabilizing. The manual has nothing on resetting the altitude hold feature as far as I can tell from the Chinglish translation. The X8HG also seems sluggish when compared to an X8G. My two X8Gs scream in hi performance mode. The X8HG moves a little faster in performance mode but certainly nothing special. I have to wonder if it is as robust as an X8G too. I've really smacked up the X8G and it keeps on ticking. The X8HG looks like the same frame and components with props and guards interchangeable so it should be up to some rough handling too. For under $200 you can't go wrong if your automatic height hold sensor continues to work. If not, you still have a beautifully painted X8G substitute.

    Instructions to get it built and start flying are horrible. Once my 8 year old son and I took it on 3-4 missions he really got the hang of it and is loving it now.

    Pretty powerful for the price. Camera is kinda junk, has horrible jelly effect. Remove the camera and this is definitely a fun flier. I've now customized mine with stronger motors and a 2D gimbal with a GoPro. This is a good quad if your eventually wanting a DJI phantom, kinda lets you get your feet wet with flying and a much lower cost.

    Absolutely love this quadcopter. It's exactly the same size (almost the same body) as the DJI Phantom drone. Of course, this one is a mere toy compared to the Phantom. But, hey, it doesn't cost near as much either. This one, the X8G has stronger motors than the other X8 models and a better camera. It uses the same batteries and controller.

    I can honestly say I was very impressed, I read some reviews and was a bit weary. When I got it and got to fly it I absolutely loved it!! I would recommend buying a better battery multi charger though as the stock one takes close to 4 hours to charge one battery.

    I could not wait to get this thing! This is my first large quad after practicing on smaller ones. The 1080p camera quality is pretty good, definitely a step up from the standard 720p 2MP cameras. It has plenty of power to carry pretty much any action camera. I did have to add some foam between the camera and quad to reduce jello. I also balanced the props.
