The Syma X5C-W is possibly one of todays most popular drones on the market. It is known to be great for beginners, easy to fly, with very stable flight characteristics.

In addition, the price is cheap for a drone, and can be purchased for only $49.00. This product does come with the batteries and remote control. Some have praised this as one of their most favorite drones of all, despite its low price.

Dimensions & Specifications

One of the greatest features regarding the Syma X5C-W is its size. Weighing in at just barely over 1 pound and 12 by 12 inches long, the Syma X5C-W is able to sustain long distances and flying time for its small size.

Just because it’s small don’t underestimate this drone’s power. The one and only drawback here, is you can’t exactly fly this baby in windy weather. My recommendation is to make sure it is a nice and calm day outside.

Camera & Video

Another great feature when it comes to the Syma X5C-W is its in-flight camera used for taking both still frame pictures and HD videos. The camera has 2 million pixels and can manage close to 800 pictures.

In addition, you can record up to 30 minutes of precious flying time! Another interesting feature here is you can use both video and the still frame camera simultaneously.

Syma X5C-W Quadrocopter Overview

The Syma X5C-W comes highly recommended and is actually the second best drone seller currently on Amazon. It is reliable, durable, and has great flight capabilities. This drone is especially great for those who are just beginning and are ready to test out the waters.

If you’re looking for a drone that is simple and easy to setup and fly, the Syma X5C-W is possibly one of the best ways to go. It is especially great given its small size and convenience to fly it both indoors and outdoors.

On top of all that, the Syma X5C Quadrocopter is set at a very reasonable price. The only people I wouldn’t recommend this drone to is those that are looking for one with a better camera and hd recording capabilities. Other than that, this one is a favorite of mine!

  1. Where can I get the best price for this bad boy?

    • I recommend Amazon. They’ve had some great discounts on drones as of lately. Not to mention they are reliable, unlike other websites I have seen.. People have complained of issues with their orders and bad packaging from third-party sellers. You can never go wrong with Amazon 🙂

  2. This thing looks really cool! I had no idea that drones can be so affordable. I was under the impression that they started at around $300.

    • I know right, and they only seem to be getting more affordable while taking everyday consumers into mind. This is one of the greatest aspects of quadcopters and even some of the cheaper ones (like the Syma X5C) fly just as well as the higher end drones! Nevertheless, I had that same first impression as you before I bought my first drone.

  3. I have heard a bit about the different quadcopter’s but this one is pretty slick. They look and can do so much more than the remote control planes. Love the camera action and the prices are good for what you get.
    Nice review.

    • I agree Travis. The Syma X5C-W is very slick indeed. It’s probably one of the many reasons this is actually a top seller on Amazon. The camera action is unbelievable and being used not just for entertainment, but so many different purposes. I think as we move forward, we’re going to see drones becoming more and more apart of our everyday lives!

  4. Interesting to hear about these new quadcopter, would be an amazing way to capture video like never before! Will consider buying one!

    • Yea most-definitely man. The Syma X5C is a lot of fun and is a drone you can’t go wrong with, especially if it’s your first buy!
