DJI Phantom 2 Vision FPV Quadcopter Drone


Keep an eye on your property with this incredible Syma X5C-1 entry level quadcopter drone with a 2MP HD camera included for less than $65. The Syma X5C-1 is a blast to fly, and you'll be amazed at the capability of this quadcopter & camera combo by watching the YouTube videos below.

Why you might need it

In a Doomsday survival scenario, a quad copter with camera could perform safe surveillance & reconnaissance missions on your property or surrounding area. That is especially important if you have less people in your group. Also the surveillance can be done much faster and safer than with people. Although you can fly horizontally and vertically with this bad boy, the camera can see very far just by flying this quadcopter straight up and spinning it around. If you have never flown a quad copter, the Syma X5C-1 quadcopter drone is a great and inexpensive way to learn how to fly them. The Syma X5C-1 is stable and easy to fly and is basically a flying camera that takes decent video and snapshots. The Syma X5C-1 quadcopter drone can do a complete 360 degree flip, can fly hundreds of feet high and has LED lights that can be turned on or off manually during night flights. It's a fast flyer. However, if you take off the camera, guards, and skids, it flies much faster and is a blast to fly for the sport of just flying it. The horizontal range is approximately 70 to 80 meters (230 to 260 ft) with the standard controller with no modifications. With a simple and proper antennae modification on the controller, the horizontal range can approach perhaps 200 meters (650 ft) as the best case farthest distance.

Added tip

Start with a Syma X5C-1 quadcopter drone (a great quad for a beginner), and then upgrade to a JJRC H8C quadcopter (a great quad for an intermediate). Both of these quadcopter models are very inexpensive. Once you learn how to fly a quadcopter, if you really need to upgrade to the much better quadcopters, check out the high end DJ Phantom Vision quadcopter and likely the best top end DJI Inspire1 models. Extra batteries are a must with the JJRC H8C. Your flight time will be up to 8 minutes on average.  Requires micro SD 2GB card (included) for camera. Battery for remote controller: 4 x AA batteries (not included). One of the only complaints of the JJRC H8C are that it will eventually burn up the motors.  So be sure to see the last YouTube video below on how to replace the motors and buy some spare motors (they are inexpensive - see recommended accessories).  Note: With the Syma X5C-1 and the JJRC H8C quadcopters, you can not see the video or pictures live. The recording is retrieved after the flight from the micro SD card. For live onboard video, you'll have to upgrade to an FPV quadcopter such as the ultra small Hubsan H107D FPV X4 Mini RTF Quadcopter, the WLtoys V686G, the JJRC H9D, or to a higher end quadcopter, such as the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter with an integrated first person viewer (FPV) Camcorder which allows live remote video streaming from up to 980 feet away. Still the Syma X5C-1 is a great quadcopter drone for a beginner, it will take videos for you, and is a lot of fun to fly.

Sample Amazon Feedback

"Better than you expect....this is an amazing value. Fun and easy to fly...."

"Great quadcopter.  Wow! Where do I start....This SYMA X5C-1 is amazing! I'm new to the Quadcopter World. I got this Flyer as a gift. After I un-boxed it and started flying and video taping with it, I can't get enough of it!"

"Nice quadcopter to enjoy for not that much money!  This is an incredible quad for the money. The camera is about what you could expect for 2MPs, but seriously for 65 bucks, that's ok. I will probably upgrade the camera to a 808 #16 sometime, but it takes great video for just playing around...." 

"Slammed into the side of my house and it is still running like it was when it was new.  I read a few reviews where someone had posted that theirs broke shortly after their child began it. I can't imagine how much it had to be abused. Mine has been stuck in numerous trees, slammed into the ground, slammed into concrete, slammed into the side of my house and it is still running like it was when it was new. Obviously that kind of abuse is not a good thing mine has taken it all in stride. It is very maneuverable and a blast to fly. The videos are just ok. The quality is about what I would expect for the price."

"At the entry level this one flies easy enough and is very stable. do buy extra batteries. flight times are increased not using video. i got almost 10 mins on mine with out the camera."

"I'm very happy with this drone! I started with a Cheerson CX-10 and then bought 3 more of those for my family. I then upgraded to a Parrot AR 2.0. I have mixed feelings about the AR. Not too long after getting the AR, I saw this inexpensive drone and, based on positive reviews, decided to give it a try. This is now my favorite BY FAR! It's very simple and light. It's easy to fly and takes crashes very well. The batteries are cheap and multi-battery chargers are available so you can fly just about as long as you can stand it. The camera is so-so but, come on, this is a super cheap drone."

"Great Drone....Great flyer, not erratic, well balanced. I found a little better balance by taking the camera off though. Highly suggest ordering a couple 650mAh batteries, it come with one 500mAh. This drone can take a beating and keep going also. And Amazon has plenty of replacement parts just in case.  Great drone, good fly time and price."
