Syma X5UW Altitude Hold Camera Drone Flight Test Review
This candy apple red camera quadcopter is a very smooth flier with altitude hold. It should be great for beginner fliers. Try coupon code SYMAX5UW for $15 off! (also please let me know if the coupon code expires). Buy it here https://goo.gl/tjbNVr or here from Amazon http://amzn.to/2pUGlpF
– Shiny candy apple red and chrome look. I like the look 😉
– Good flight time, even when recording. I got close to 7 1/2 minutes of flight, while recording most of it to my SD card.
– Good smooth flier. Should be great for beginners.
– Auto takeoff and auto landing. Can safely auto land from high altitudes.
– Auto lands on low battery (does not drop from the sky).
– Altitude hold
– 720p HD camera that can record to a microSD card while WiFi FPV is operating
– Needed microSD card (4 Gb) and USB card reader are included in the package 🙂
– Can increase the range of the quadcopter by not activating the WiFi app, to simply operate the onboard 720p camera.
– Headless mode and one key return
I had no problems with this quadcopter’s flying abilities. Most of the cons that I noticed deal with the video.
– Proprietary battery 🙁
– Jello, and plenty of it. Blade balancing needed to reduce such.
– microSD recorded video is somewhat washed out in bright sunlight.
– If you intend to fly FPV, you’ll need to keep it very close. WiFi FPV is very short range at 20 to 40 meters.
– Recorded FPV video to your phone is very laggy and just about unusable. Would recommend using one of the many free screen recorder apps instead if you wish recorded phone video.
Cool design with a 2MP camera, you can record photos and videos during every happy moment
