Pros
– Clone of both Syma X5SC but with Syma X5HW capabilities. Looks like the X5SC, but with altitude hold feature.
– Camera is pointed directly forward for horizon view.
– Uses widely available and cheap Syma X5C batteries.
– Includes on/off switch.
– Automatic landing.
– Stable yet maneuverable flier. Does very tight funnels
– Headless mode and one key return.
– Automatically lamds itself on battery depletion (does not drop from the sky).
– For automatic landings, the quadcopter knows when it’s on the ground and will automatically shut its motors down.
– Does not require FAA registration.

Cons
– Although the automatic landing feature worked, I could not get the automatic takeoff feature to work.
– Low resolution 640 x 480p recorded video. Both screen and recorded video becomes very laggy as distance to the quadcopter increases, with frozen and dropped frames. But this is true for most WiFi FPV fliers.
– Quadcopter’s motors are running in idle at all time. If you crahs, it’s very important to manually stop the motors with the controller (move and hold both sticks down and inboard), or you will risk damaging the motors.
– Although the quadcopter will land itself on loss of signal (LOS), its descent during LOS is very slow. There is a risk of flyaway if LOS occurs while flying high. As such, when you do fly high, make sure to fly upwind so that the quadcopter will descend toward you if LOS occurs.
