Review of Syma X5C Explorers 6-Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter With HD Camera

Features

Remote Control - The first thing you will notice is the remote control. Users can easily change the remote with a flip of a switch to allow for right or left handed users. This is good news for lefties because they won’t have to fly with the right throttle anymore. Syma used the spectrum technology which is slated to reach distances of up to 50 m. the controls of the quadcopter were super-fast. It will respond immediately when you hit the control.

Agility, Speed, and Control – The X5C Explorer can easily perform a 360 degrees flip. Because of its size, the copter zips through the air with ease and can dodge obstacles or combat wind gusts. Hovering is easier with this model than you might expect since it can be hard to find in a mid-priced model that hovers well. The 6-axis controller helps stabilize the copter in moderate winds. Even in 10mph windows this model can be handled easily without much stabilization.

Durable, Modular Design – The modular design of Syma's X5C is preferred by people because the parts can be easily swapped. This is welcome news because even experienced flyers crash their copters, which can result in damaged parts that need to be replaced. This model has propeller guards that will protect the propellers if the event that you crash and burn. Advanced users usually leave these guards to reduce the weight of the drone and increase the flight time. There are many people who have crashed the copter but found that it did not break. The drone has a flight time of 7 minutes.

HD Camera – Going by the pricing, many people expected the camera to be of poor quality, but they were pleasantly surprised that pictures came out as a great. There is a 2GB Micro SD included with the camera, the resolution of the camera is 1280 x 720, and it even has video capability of 30 frames per second.


What Age Range Is This Toy For?

The recommended age is 14 years and older, making this desirable both for teens and adults. This toy is meant for both beginners and experienced pilots. It is great for learners because the features make it easy to learn how to fly a quadcopter, including the expected crashes, without having to worry about severe damage.

Why People Like This Toy

From the many reviews I read from people who have bought and used the copter, they had a lot of good things to say about it. One notable reason was the pricing compared to features of the quadcopter. Many of the features could not be found in many low priced copters, but in mid-priced ones. Controlling it was much easier as it had a simple remote interface.
