Too fast latter are shaved on walls and edges, so that the replacement rotors are needed more quickly than expected. In the air the Syma X5C Quadrocopter is however in his element: Stable pans and rotations can be performed on relatively safe for inexperienced pilots. In this mode and get the sophisticated sensor technology to mitigate the possibly untrained controls as possible, so that a softer flight with the Syma X5C is possible.

If the Syma 5XC actually a drone with HD camera?
Even if the manufacturer bodied speaks of a mini-drone with HD camera, this name should evoke skepticism even when considering the price. For good 50 - 60 euros to expect HD quality is daring, yet the 2 Megapixel camera onboard the Syma X5C delivers decent photos and can keep up with competitors like the Hubsan X4. Last but not least the stable flight behavior pays off again: With a steady hand with the Syma X5C so steady video can be recorded, which can turn up just in the private hobby area.

Overall, this chic mini-drone makes a good impression. Particularly convincing the extensive facilities and excellent flight characteristics of the Syma X5C and can compete with those of the competition entirely.

So who is in search of a drone that provides a cheap and good introduction to the aviation, canceled pretty good with the Syma X5C.
Those who want to go one step further and wants more accessories (for example, a second battery or a bigger memory card), here is the Syma X5C Explorer Edition presented. This is also popular with readers of this page, where I would like to point out that I do not find justified the additional cost by almost 100%. Overall, however, a very decent entry-level drone!
