Syma – X5C Explorers – Review and Flight (Indoors and Outdoors)

Link to buy from Banggood:
RTF ($46) – http://www.banggood.com/Syma-X5C-Explorers-2_4G-4CH-RC-Quadcopter-Mode-2-With-Camera-p-913827.html?p=Z431161082112012126P

This is my review of the Syma X5C Explorers quadcopter. This quad can take multiple forms, in a way. It has optional prop guards, landing legs, and camera. If you fly with all the accessories, it can get a bit unstable in fast flying, but works well for aerial videography and prop protection. If you trim it down to its lightest form, with no prop guards, landing feet, or camera, it can fly “sporty” quite well, and even do flips. Overall this is a good stable quad, but you have to make sure to fly it in the proper manner for the attachments you have on it.

Enjoy!

X5C is one of my favorites for general fun outdoor flying. It’s super stable, very easy to control, able to handle moderate winds. It is very durable, unaffected by most crashes. Recently I got one stuck in a tree. It was up there for a week, including some periods of severe rain. When it finally fell down to the ground, it was fine! Another thing I like about the X5C is that BNF versions cost around $25, so no worries if it’s lost or damaged! Here’s a tip I just discovered today: after a crash, one prop was turning slow and making a clunking sound. At the time I could not figure out what was wrong, but with closer inspection I found some dirt stuck in the gears. With a toothbrush I gently cleaned it out, and it flies great again.

storm3016 says:

Very helpful review, thanks. I’m curious if this would still be a recommended buy 2 years later? I was looking at the Eachine E58 originally but I like the fact that all the parts are replaceable on this one. The E58 is a lot more portable though. Any input would be appreciated!

KL Music says:

My quad is a bit heavier than this one. About 250 grams.

Al Moral says:

ust learned that on my remote trims MUST BE RECENTERED TILL BEEP CHANGES (NEUTRAL /CENTER) or it will seem like you have bad motor! i think my granddaughter pressed the trim buttons X10 or more times and battery removal would not rest, recalibration/sync will not work, or removing batteries will not work .MUST CHECK YOUR TRIM BARS AND PRESS OPPOSITE OF SHOWN DOTS/BARS!! i learned the hard way so you all don’t have to! hahaaha

BikeRidinManiac says:

The older 1 isn’t as stable tell you that

Steve Stokes says:

When I got mine I also got a clip that goes to the antenna that allows me to put my phone in it so you could do live video

Steve Stokes says:

Also do you think there’s any way to add a better battery that would make it Fly longer and better I guess
