Not long ago, Syma had released the RC Quadcopter Syma X8C and RC Quadcopter Syma X8W, and now it comes out another variant: Syma X8G with 8MP camera. Of course, the other two guys also comes with a camera, but what distinguishes the X8G from them?
RC Quadcopter Syma Series Comparison
Compared with the X8C and X8W with a 2MP camera, clearly, the RC Quadcopter Syma X8G is a winner here, thus creating more clear shooting experience. Developed by Syma itself, the GoPro style action camera can also be used as a standalone device.
I do love its compact exterior appearance. The silver color makes it very attractive and aesthetic. You may feel the excellent craftsmanship out of it. Meanwhile, the built-in colorful LED lights makes it a great, charming night flyer.
RC Quadcopter Syma Easy to Control
Also, the X8G is quite easy to fly. The controller is comfortable to hold and control. It comes with two speed modes: High/Low. Like many other similar quads, in the low mode, the quad is mild and flies smoothly, which, surely, is great for beginners. But when it comes to the high mode, this thing almost runs wild like the Hubsan X4,so you’d better come to this when totally getting hang of it. Besides, this guy has headless mode, which, you know, makes it much easier to control. The equipped blade protectors works great for protecting the quad from collisions.
RC Quadcopter Syma Powerful Battery
It’s also worth mentioning that the X8G has a 7.4V 2000mAh Lipo battery the same as the X8C, both of which offers strong flying performance. However, the charging time takes about 2 hrs, and I’m getting 8 minutes of flight time.
All in all, the Syma X8G with 8MP camera is absolutely a competitive, satisfatory quad for aerial photography in its class. It still flies great in the sky and brings tons of fun for newbies and advanced players.
