From its impressive size to an admirable set of features, the Syma drone X6 is proving to be quite the catch in the drone department. You can attach a GoPro Camera to the device and get it into the air. At 56 cm across, this is justifiably the largest drone on the market. The outer foam protection design safeguards the rotors and perhaps adds to the dimensions mentioned.

The controllers pack diversity. You have two channels: the right controller to direct forward/backward drone movement, and the left controller for up/down as well as left/right drone movement. The 3-Axis Gyro Stabilization System is an exquisite addition to the X6 that keeps it steady even in slightly windy weather; but there are better alternatives out there.

Comparing battery lifespan with the 2nd Generation Phantom, the Syma drone X6 Super Ship is quite disappointing. The Phantom is heavier and comes ready to handle an amazing battery (5200 mAH) but the X6 is lighter and should be able to stay in the air longer let alone take up a similar high-end battery. In this regard alone the Syma drone X6 Super Ship does not meet expectations.

PROS:

  • Compared to other giant size drones, the X6 packs more quality.
  • Good customer service
  • Stable flight
  • Stylish look
  • Lightweight but durable

CONS:

  • The standard Li-Po battery capacity for large-scale models of this type is 850 mAH. Syma has increased the dimensions of the Syma drone X6 without giving it extra battery power, like the 1500 mAH seen in the 2nd generation Parrot drone models. Being bigger but staying in the air for the same time as a smaller drone is indeed a disadvantage.
  • When it comes to flight specs, a 30-meter binding range is an industry low. If it goes out of range, there is no auto-return option to bring it back.

I did not know exactly what to expect when I purchased this Quad-copter, but for the money I was willing to experiment and see what good it was. I am VERY happy with this Copter. It does everything a regular RC Copter cannot do. I am absolutely amazed at the maneuverability of this Copter and its ability to slide straight sideways, backwards, and forwards is a cut above all of the rest of the RC Copter units. Banking, turning, hovering, vertical, and diagonal movement are extremely easy with this Copter and I just can't get enough of flying this thing. I have some acreage outside of town and go out there every day and fly it and have had a blast taking friends out there and showing them what this thing can do. I am also very pleased at how this unit breaks down easily into components that make it easy to haul around, maintain, and store.The mechanical parts are simple and durable and I have had no problems whatsoever with it having any mechanical problems after having it for more than two months. It seems so many other RC Copters that I have had were marginally good when it came to mechanical reliability and I had to either replace or adjust parts after just a few uses. Another aspect of the design of this Quad-copter is that the prop guards prevent damage in a lot of situations. You don't have to worry about the props getting into tree limps, power lines, walls, or any other obstacles when you get too close to something. It just bumps into the object and bounces off. With any other Copter it would have shredded the blade and then dropped catastrophically to the ground. So not only is this thing extremely precision in its controls, but it also is much less prone to damage in case you do get too close to any object of any kind.Read more ›

My son wanted this for his birthday despite the fact that he has few expensive brushless quadcopters already. We were at an auction and it was really cheap (the same price as on Amazon I later found out), so I picked one up. It reminds me of a larger Blade 180 QX or MQX with bumpers. Out of the box, the trims were not centered and it drifted fast. This is common with Proto-x and other toy quads. The TX gives a nice high beep to let you know when you are centered. Once I had them centered, it was only took a couple clicks to get it hovering hands free.The maiden flight was OK. I was expecting the sluggish climbs from the Li-Ion battery and the TX felt like it had a lot of expo added. I pulled a 2S 800 LiPo battery from the collection and plugged it in and then it had some nice power to it. I still had to give the stick more movement that I like, but I am used to more expensive computerized TXs. If the motors start to fail, I might have to look into getting some brushless ESCs and motors for it. I think this would work well with one of the micro FPV kits that are coming out soon.Most importantly, my son loves it. He loves flying the 200 and 350 QX outdoors and his Proto-X and Hubsan X-4 indoors, but this is something big he can fly indoors. He loves the lights on the bottom. I might add some lights for night flying too since the days are getting shorter fast. So if you are looking for a cheap but impressive toy quad that is a lot bigger than the micros that are out there, this one is worth it. It will give you something good to practice your orientations on.

OK to update one word (AWSOME) this it has now lasted over 50 flights with orig battery and also 1,000 mah battery. It will last much longer if you break in motors for a full battery pack at lowest throttle setting then let cool completely!!!! Also use a #2 lead(graphite) pencil to lubricate gears.Do not use oil on shafts or gears ,bushings are carbon impregnated.well flying good electrics hovers great blades are larger than wl262 and Also can be flown much faster in high mode if you fly it on diagonal by using right (or left)tilt forward and using opposite rotating to oppose the tilt and to not lose altitude. These little quads are like flying a helicopter with an easier learning curve There is no limits to stunts if you get one with brushless motors and the quad is much smoother easier to hover and fly I'm waiting for one with collective for inverted flight ,they will do loops and rolls not this one though!! ,not as fast as WL262(they eat motors way to quick) or as easy to modify after you remove blade protection . not good for wind but can be flown indoors with large livingroom with high ceiling ,ps watch ceiling fan!!!
