    Much improved over the orginal Syma X5-c. The body has been enhanced to be stronger, yet still lightweight and sealed very nicely. Everyone complained about the X5-C's camera angle, that it pointed downward too much. Well Syma has corrected that on the X5-SW. The new battery compartment is an additional luxury that I love. I really can't explain, but it just feel tighter than the previous versions. I should know, I went through three of them! As soon as I flew it, I gave my old X5-C to my son. And oh yea, it came out of the box just about ready to fly. There are no screws in plastic bag to deal with. All the screws that are needed for assembly (landing skids and prop guards) are in their places, you just need to tighten them up - I LOVE IT!!!
    The camera doesn't take a SD card, you have to record your videos on your smart phone. I have yet to test that out. Otherwise, for the price, great quadcopter.

    Syma X5SW Explorer 2 2.4GHz w/0.3MP HD Camera
    Very easy to fly.
    Great Quad for beginners to learn with.
    Wifi FPV to your own Android cell phone w/SYMA APP (one for newer Android OS and one for older Android OS).
    Also works with IOS.
    Durable material - does not damage easily.
    Can be flown indoors or outdoors.
    Small and compact so it can be taken on trips without taking up a lot of room.
    Plenty of replacement parts readily available.
    Will easily fly for 8.5 minutes if you are not too aggressive even prop guards and camera recording.
    Please note that the CONS below are not enough that you should keep from buying this Quad. As I said, it is a great Quad to learn on and is not one that you have to worry about crashing because it cost too much.
    Instruction manual leaves some things out - one is that there are two APPS for FPV and Android OS (the QCode in the manual is for newer Android OS you have to search for the one for older Android OS.
    Headless mode has a mind of its own and Quad will lose direction.
    FPV to phone has lag and can not be used to actually fly FPV without flying into objects (even when using a Ultra High Speed SD Card).
    Only 0.3MP camera and no SD Card Slot in camera so can not record to camera.
    "Wind Bug" is still present in newer model X5SW Quad.
    During Wifi use Quad tends to fly away due to interference between Quad and camera.
    I purchased my Quad for less than $50... at $75 it is not worth the price (that is my opinion only).

    Syma X5SW
    Great drone for beginners who wants to learn how to fly drone completely manually. Small enough to flight inside, comes with prop guards, camera and legs, which all can be dismounted to prolong flight time.
    Very light, so falling on the ground (not asphalt or stones) will mostly do no damage to the drone.
    Very light - smallest wind blows takes the drone away and with stronger constant wind it barely can fly against it.
    No optional flight altitude keep.
    Front and back aren't distinguishable in the day light. Had to tape bright tape to the front and change props to different color one.

    The drone is perfectly packed. It's a perfect drone for people who are starting in this hobby. I've recieved the order in 15 days, so perfect.

    I'm really happy with Syma x5sw.
    Take care with the wind.

    It's my first drone and after 10 minutes of crashes (which it happily survived) I was able to keep it stable in the air and to do some simple movements, so I guess it's easy to fly.
    Image quality seems better than in presentation video (colors and image details).
    Camera connection not possible in the neighborhood of a wireless router. Even when connected (router off), the video is a bit delayed (but I believe this is normal) and not fluent.

    2. Remove the blade that does not spin to see if the motor is working properly;

    3. If the motor does not work, check whether the motor gear is connected properly;

    4. Remove the body shell, check if the motor cable is connected to the mainboard appropriately.

    The detail you can read this post:

    Troubleshooting: one blade does not spin as fast as others

  • How to bind the quadcopter and the transmitter?

    First turn on the quadcopter power switch, place it in a horizontal position, then turn on the transmitter. Push the left throttle lever to the highest position, and then pull it back to the lowest position. You will hear a clear "di, di" sound and the indicator light will stop flashing and just stay lit, meaning the frequency adjustment is completed and your quadcopter is ready to take off.
  • Why the indicator light of the quadcopter is flashing?

    1. The quadcopter is not binding to the transmitter correctly, please refer to the user manual to re-modulate the frequency;

    2. Battery power is insufficient, recharge the battery.

  • Why one of the blades spin slower than others?

    1. Check the tightness of the blades ;

    2. Adjust the trim key ;

    3. Re-modulate the frequency, the quadcopter must be put on a flat ground;

    4. Re-calibrate gyroscope.

  • How to distinguish the steering of a blade?

    Blades are usually marked with A, B or R. Diagonal direction blades have the same steering, adjacent blades have opposite steering.
  • How to judge the steering of a motor?

    1. Usually, motor with red and blue wires is usually a forward motor, while the reversed motor presents black and white wires. Diagonal direction motors have the same steering, adjacent motors have opposite steering.

    2. On the motor surface sometimes you can find CW or CCW. CW stands for forward motor, while CCW refers to reversed motor.

  • Why the transmitter has no reaction when operated?

    1. Check and make sure that the batteries are installed by the right polarity;

    2. Battery power is insufficient, please full charge the battery, or replace with a full charge battery.

  • Why the voltage of single battery cell is lower?

    Single battery cell voltage imbalance is a normal phenomenon. Large current discharge will usually lead to voltage difference. This may be caused by poor contact between battery and charger, and the customer should adopt balance charge mode to charge the battery.
  • Why even though all blades spin, the quadcopter still cannot flip / rotate / take off?

    1. Battery power is insufficient, recharge the battery;

    2. Check whether the blades are installed correctly.
