Nighthawk RC Quadcopter Introduction
The Nighthawk DM007 SPY is earning its spot as one of the best small RC quads in 2015. With sleek, dynamic-looking, it is capable of high-flying HD recording, good for both beginner and experienced pilots.
After achieving a great success of the JJRC H8 in 2014, this year the JJRC is trying for another win. This newly-released JJRC H22 is born at the right moment. Does this thing have any particular strengths?
As advertised, the H22 is mainly characterized by its inverted flights, which means it can fly up side down, thus easily getting you excited and capturing the attention of the crowd. Just awesome once you made it!! Of course, other normal movements such as: up/down, forward/ backward, turn left/ right, 3D flip, hovering etc., are simply a piece of cake. Another great feature is its extremely attractive lower price around $20.
Also, like other quality quads of its kind, it’s worth mentioning that it features headless mode , one key to return, and dual flight speed mode (Low 40% and High 100%). Needless to say, this will make it much easier to control and hard to lose for beginners.
As installed with four guard circles around the blades to avoid crashing, it enables you to just fly boldly. Additionally, the motors are fully wrapped, well stabilized and produces fast rotation, thus providing strong power for flying.
Meanwhile, the H22 comes with a 220mAh battery which offers about 7 minutes of flight time after charging 45 mins, not long enough but still acceptable and good to have fun. Considering its small size(16.8×16.8×9.6cm), it’s more suitable for flying indoors. Theoretically, you can also take it outside under the mild weather.
In simple terms, although not the best in its class, this JJRC H22 still excites my feeling for its novel design and inverted flight. And honest speaking, you just can not beat it for the price. Actually, you get the best bang for the buck here since it really is a good choice among small to mini-sized quads.
After flying this Syma S107G heli indoors for about one month, I have to say that this thing is one of the most under-rated RC heli out there. I got a red(+blue, yellow) one, and find it great fun to fly. It has only 3-way controls, but competes surprisingly well with the likes of the Blade MCX2 with 4-way controls , anyone can hover it easily.
I am very pleased with the quality, with Double-deck propeller, alloy fuselage, vernier adjustment, knob design and gyro, which help it stay steady and flexible during flight. The trim metal body and snug plastic hood fit well. Made of alloy fuselage, it is very light weight and almost indestructible in any crash, perfect for very first time beginners. After many trial, I am literally surprised that I haven’t broken it yet.
Also, Helicopter Syma is fairly easy to control. The controller has two different joy sticks: One is for throttle, the other for control. It can fly in 6 directions: Rotate Clockwsie / Anti-Clockwise, Move Forward / Backward, Move Up / Down.
That blinking navigational light in the Syma S107G Helicopter Syma nose makes it look positively sentient when it is hovering in front of you. Really a great night flyer!
Meanwhile, the included USB cable allows the Helicopter Syma to be recharged in just around 30 mins or less, when you plug it into a PC/Tablet. You can also charge it direct from the remote. Well, I’ve got about 7 minutes of flight time after charging it every 30-40 minutes. The Syma S107G has a built in rechargeable battery. The remote control itself takes 6 AA batteries, so you may need to buy some when giving it as a gift to someone else.
You’ll find this little guy a big fun!!
This JJRC F180 is a great copter to practice your aerobatic skills or if your on your journey to becoming an accomplished multi rotor pilot. It can take all the tumbles and rolls of aggressive flying over grass. It looks small but it’s OK with blades protection.
According to my experince, the Syma X5SW is more powerful than Syma Quadcopter X5C. Though not a high end photography platform that costs real money, it is a great entry to learn how to fly and position the camera, and an excellent second-step quadcopter to learn how to pilot one.
After flying the Syma helicopter indoors for about one month, I have to say that it is one of the most under-rated Syma helicopter out there. I got a yellow one, and find it great fun to fly. The Syma helicopter has only 3-way controls, but competes surprisingly well with the likes of the Blade MCX2 with 4-way controls. Actually, a lot of action can be achieved: up & down, forward & backward, left & right, hover nicely. Take quite the beating!
I have played with this Syma X5SC-1 several days and find it very easy to fly and get it to do what you want. As a matter of fact, I was able to get the hang of Syma Quadcopter camera pretty quick as it is very stable as well, no need to trim them out at all. In my point of view, this thing is pretty easy for beginners to learn with and enjoy. Cool little drone!!
