They may have started out life as a cool new gadget that a only a few people used one the weekends. However, nowadays drones are beginning to have a greater role in our everyday lives. Some companies are even looking in to using them to help deliver your shopping to your door so the possibilities are almost endless! They are very clever pieces of technology but choosing one can be a little overwhelming when looking at the abundance of options there are out there. This is where todays review will help and we are taking a look at the Syma X5C Explorers Quadcopter!


This drone comes equipped with a HD camera and a 2GB memory card built in so you will have the chance to capture some high quality footage when you are using the machine. To ensure that you can really get the best out of your drone it has incorporated inside it a 6-axis Gyro stabilization system which should mean you get maximum stability during flights. With this system in place you will be able to perform flips at the press of a button with 360 degree eversion. It will take 100 minutes to fully charge the machine, but once it is charged you will have a seven minute flight time. To take a look at other similar drones and their features visit

Plus Points

The sheer amount of technology that has been crammed into this small drone is impressive. The six axis gyro stabilization tech is a very good thing to have as it should help even the most novice of fliers quickly get to grips with the flying techniques needed. The fact that it has a HD camera built ion and a memory card to record everything it sees is a bonus and this should keep you entertained for hours!

Negative Points

Based on previous customer comments there does appear to be an issue with the battery packs on some of these drone controllers. Customers have complained that after placing batteries in the control packs they have later gone to use it and found that the batteries had gotten very hot and began to melt. This is obviously a health and safety issue and could be dangerous. It has to be said however that this only appears to be the case in a minimal number of the drones, but it is still something you should keep an eye on.


The Syma looks as if it could be one of the best drones on the market. It comes with an abundance of very useful and well thought out features built in to it and as a result you should be able to extract the best experience possible form the machine. By including the stabilising gyro technology and a camera the manufactures have added some small touches that others have missed. It isn’t all good for the machine though, as the malfunctioning battery pack would be enough to ruin anyone’s experience. All in all though, if you avoid getting a faulty machine this is a very nice drone!
