The Syma X6 was titled Super Ship because of its tremendously large size. Many people love how large this quadcopter is and how it is capable of doing so many tricks in the air. While some of today’s quadcopters only measure to be an inch long in diameter, the Syma X6 takes a different approach in size showing just how diverse today’s quadcopters are becoming.

If your a quadcopter enthusiast, than the Syma X6 is definitely an impressive drone. The responsiveness of this drone is excellent. It maneuvers in so many different directions. I guess the only biggest downside with the Syma X6 Super Ship is the fact you can’t fly it indoors… Then again, isn’t that to be expected with a drone of this magnitude?

Dimensions & Specifications

As previously mentioned, the Syma X6 isn’t your average drone. It stands out on the market because of its impressive size. More specifically, it comes in at about 22 inches long by 22 inches wide.

Flying this drone feels a lot different than other more average sized drones. I guess its the size that really changes the whole experience. Being able to flip and balance a drone almost 2 feet in length makes you feel… professional in a way.

Flight, Durability, & Controls

So now to the actual flying. The Syma X6 is the type of drone made for pure enjoyment. It’s the type of quadcopter you take out on a nice sunny day and show off to your friends. For a quadcopter of this size, what is even more impressive, is its speed and handling.syma x6 super ship review

It’s actually surprisingly light. I would say it is no more than a pound or two at most and was somehow built for speed.

Its use of a 4-axis system makes this faster than todays typical 6-axis drones. This makes the Syma X6 Super Ship look that much more amazing as you are flying it in the air.

The 360 eversion feature is really cool as well. This allows you to flip the drone in any one of four directions. It also has its own built-in gyro stabilizer that allows you to better adjust its position while in the air.

When it comes to Syma, you just can’t go wrong. They have some of the most toughest and durable quadcopters on the market. These drones are efficient and can you last you a lifetime. I personally find Syma to be one of the best and most reliable manufacturers out there.

Syma X6 Super Ship Overview

So what do you think? Is the Syma X6.. Too big? Yes, it is a big drone alright. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing and has actually become one of the most popular drones of its size that is currently on the market. One could argue that an amazing benefit of this drone is the fact it can be flown for up to 15 minutes!

That is a very impressive flying time, whereas many other drones especially in this price range are only capable of handling up to 7 plus or so minutes at a time. Not to mention the fact that the Syma X6 Super Ship is the perfect drone that won’t break on you because of a crash. That’s the other benefit.. The simple fact is that its size has allowed for some much better durability.

Overall, you’ll be happy to have the Syma X6 as apart of your growing drone collection. The price is very reasonable and can be bought for $79.95. This is a drone perfect for beginners to enthusiasts and comes highly recommended!

    Now i want one for me, my precious…lol
    Good job on the site, we need more of quality content like that online.

    • Hahah thanks! I really appreciate it! The Syma X6 Super Ship is a must have for sure, as long as the extra large size doesn’t bother you and it looks great in the air.

  2. hey pete 🙂

    Nice quadcopter there… I just fell in love with it, and am also likely going to buy, the way you outlined it was pretty cool:) thanks for reviewing it as it has helped me understand the power of this little thing…

    Amazing site too… I love it!

    • Me too Nadeem. There’s nothing like having a Syma X6 Super Ship in your quadcopter collection. I’m glad you enjoyed my site, and this review in particular. Make sure to stop by again!

  3. Hi PMakaris,

    Just wanted to comment on how interesting your site is. I never knew there were such depth to flying drones. I only thought they were used for military purposes. Are these legal in all states? I’m very interested in getting one myself to pick up a new hobby.

    • Thank you Stephen, glad you like it! Yes in-fact flying drones are legal in all states! You should definitely get yourself a drone. They’re actually very affordable which is nice and is no wonder they’re growing so much in popularity.

  4. Hi!
    I actually like the size of this one myself.
    Much easier to keep your eye on when flying it.
    I also like the 6 vs 6 axes, which I think is why it is so fast.
    Have you flown it yet and if so how do you like it?
    I do like the price so that is a good thing.
    I can not wait to see where these things are headed.


    • Awesome Shawn! It’s really a matter of personal preference. I personally have not gotten around to the Syma X6 quadcopter just yet, but it’s definitely on my list. If you do happen to buy it, I would love to know your experience with it!

  5. Hello, just came across your site and thought I’d make a quick comment.

    I also thought 22 inches would be a bit big for a drone, but I personally loved the size on the Syma Super Ship! It’s been a lot of fun to play with my son and for a $65 price tag you just can’t go wrong.. When it comes down to it though, I guess it can depend on what you are really looking for. Great review on the Syma X6! 🙂

  6. I love the themes you pick. It’s clear and at the same time it does not look scam-ish. There’s so many thing on your website and I like that; the more stuff on it, the better coz it looks more active. I can see you put lots of work there bud.

    Maybe more post about helicopters. But other than that your website looks really amazing

  7. I didn’t realize having a drone was a hobby. I just thought the military and Amazon used them! Of course, why wouldn’t they be a hobby? I don’t really know how I feel about drones at this point. I’ve never been an early adopter. I just got rid of my Blackberry last week.

    Peter, nice article. I don’t know a whole lot about drones yet but $65 doesn’t seem that expensive when you consider that you can pay three times that much for a remote control vehicle. How expensive do drones get in general? It seems to me that these would be more fun to fly than a model airplane.



    • Very true! Drones seem to only be getting more affordable by the day. But there is definitely a big range in price. The features are so extensive, it can really depend. You can find more professional drones for photography going up to almost $5,000! But that’s not something I recommend to hobbyists. They are definitely more enjoyable than model airplanes. One of the main reasons being that they fly higher and in so just about any direction. Another reason is because of the many tricks you can do. Overall, they make for a much more enjoyable experience, in my opinion! 🙂

  9. Those drones are some awesome toys! Especially this one because of it’s size. I imagine it must be turning some heads when you fly this thing around:) Is it dangerous if it hits someone and does it brake on impact? If it falls on the ground for example…i would like to have one of those, you explain nice and in detail. Realy great review, makes me want to get one:) Scare my neighbours in the middle of the night LOL
    Great post, thanks for sharing.

  10. Nice review of the Syma X6. Very well written review. have just recently gotten very interested in drones and this is just the kind on information I need.

    I spent many hours watching drone demos at AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this year and I am hooked.

    I bookmarked your website so I can come back often. Thanks for all your work in putting this together. Great job!


  11. Wow, the price seems reasonable for such a massive size quadcopter. Is this really an easy to fly device? How about the battery life, I was expecting it to have a rechargeable battery? The reason I ask these questions is because I want to get one for a friend of mine for x-mas. What really makes me want to get it is the size and the fact that it’s quite durable. I think that will out weigh the batter, I’m sure my friend will figure out how to fly it. Lol Thanks for the great review.

  12. I shared this with on my husband’s Facebook page. We went to a Tinkerfest at our local science museum and a man was letting people try out a little drone. It was $42 for one that would fit in the palm of your hands. He said it was professional grade. While kids were trying it out, they kept hitting the walls and breaking the blades off of them. My daughter did pretty good and wanted one. My husband was going to get her one, but I guess they both forgot about it. I’m glad, because I like this one better, and if it’s more durable, then that will be all the better, since she is a beginner. She will probably get this for her birthday. Do you know how long it takes to ship? We have til November, but we don’t want to order it too soon either, lol.

  13. Peter, nice review. As a pilot of 4 of these, the $60 I spent on them at the time was well worth it. I found myself with several batteries charged at once so I could spend my entire lunch break flying them up and down the street, around trees, etc. Although it has 2 flying modes, one more like simple left-right, and the other somewhat like doing a banked turn, I always preferred the first mode.

    Anyway, I wanted to mention 2 issues I had. One was that the rubbery foam frame, while pretty sturdy, did in fact break upon crash, but was repairable with shoe-goo – a flexible glue. The other downside for me was that in every case, the gyro went wacky, rendering the drone unusable. It would flip over upon takeoff, or just auger into the ground for no reason. Even so, like I said, I got my moneys worth out of them.

    • Thanks for mentioning those issues Jere and I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying your time with the Syma X6! Also glad to hear that you were able to get the foam frame fixed with glue. Unfortunately, Gyro’s do tend to go out of whack after some time, especially with many entry level models. But there are a couple things you can do. The first would be to reset and re-calibrate your Syma X6. If you haven’t tried that already, I recommend doing so.

      Also make sure you use a flat surface when calibrating your drone. If that doesn’t work, you can always try contacting the company explaining your issue and asking for a replacement. Nonetheless, I’m glad to hear you got your moneys worth and enjoyed your time in the sky, for what it’s worth! 🙂

  14. Very informative. I don’t know that much about personal drones although I did witness one in flight. How expensive can they get Peter ? I mean $79 doesn’t seem that expensive considering you can pay three times that much for a descent remote control vehicle.

    • Thanks Ron! Drones greatly range in price. There are many highly affordable drones, some of which can be purchased for under $25. Then there are drones with great photo and video shooting capabilities, which are usually priced the highest (sometimes in the thousands) and tend to have some of the most advanced features.
