Syma X11C RC Quadcopter 2 Mega Pixel Camera Drone

Best Beginner Quadcopter Camera Drone offers Fantastic Safe Flying Fun for ALL the Family

18-04-2015 Update: Having flown the Syma X11C RC Quadcopter indoors for the last two days I can honestly say that this is the Best Micro Quadcopter for indoor flying I have ever flown. It is safe, silky smooth, quiet and the Syma X11C is very user friendly. The flexible guard will allow you to ‘bounce’ off obstacles remaining in control and the rubber feet cushion any impact on a hard floor. This Micro Quadcopter will turn 360 degrees on its Axis without any noticeable deviation in height, the Yaw rate may not be the fastest you will encounter but it is very controllable. Hovering indoors is the best I have ever encountered from any sized QuadcopterI’ve done some outdoor testing in high mode and it zips through the air. The 360 degree flips are really tight and never fail to astonish any onlookers. You have the added advantage of being able to experiment with Aerial Photography with this great Camera Drone from Syma. 

I have just received the Syma X11C Air-Cam RC Micro Quadcopter from TinyDeal CLICK THIS LINK in order to undertake an honest and impartial review. I’ve flown the Syma X5 RC Quadcopter and the new version Syma X5SC RC Quadcopter but never had the pleasure of flying one of their Micro Sized models. Syma are renowned for making quality RC Models having produced RC Helicopters for a number of years and  established themselves as one of the leading suppliers in this space.

Quadcopter Packaging
The Syma X11C Camera Drone comes well packed in a small sized compact box 19cm x 19cm (perfect for taking anywhere) already assembled with propeller guards and is ready to fly straight out of the box. The RC Quadcopter is approximately 15cm square and measures 10cm diagonally from the centre of one propeller to the other. All you need to do is insert 4 x AA batteries into the Xbox type transmitter and charge up your Quadcopter battery and you are ready to fly. Before your first flights take some time to study the manual so you are conversant with all the functions of the transmitter.

Gear Driven Propellers
Unlike most of the Micro Sized RC Quadcopters this models propellers are gear driven as opposed to being directly attached to the motors making it considerably quieter and smoother than its counterparts. As the smaller motors spin the larger sized propellers slower than the traditional direct drive blades it less likely to cause any damage when crashed.

Super Safe
It is one of the finest, safest Micro Quadcopters you can presently buy and most suitable for indoor flying and outdoors on a windless day. Weighing just 29 grams without the battery this super lightweight RC Quadcopter is simple to fly and can record video or take photographs from the on-board 2 mega pixel camera.

Super Stable Quadcopter
In the low rate you will have difficulty finding a more stable Micro Quadcopter and this makes the Syma X11C perfect for beginners to this exciting and rewarding hobby. A great set of bright LED lights show through the underside of the Quadcopter arms helping learners and experienced flyers with the Quadcopters orientation (the direction the Quadcopter is pointing in) which is a definite plus.

Syma X11C Flight Rates and Acrobatics
The low and high rates allow you to step up the flying speed when you are ready and on a calm day is fantastic fun outdoors. When you are totally confident in your flying skills this Micro Quadcopter can perform great 360 degree flips. These are best performed outdoors on grass to minimise any likelihood of damage if you should inadvertently crash. However the Syma X11C RC Quadcopter has been very well constructed with the propeller guard flexible and the propeller blades pliable. The motors holders have small rubber shock absorbers which protect the motors from damage when landing on a wooden floor or similar hard surface.

2 Mega Pixel Camera Drone
The built in 2MP camera won’t give you professional quality video or photographs but is absolutely perfect for entry level Aerial Photography. Everything you need to practice your Aerial Photography skills comes with your low priced package including a 4GB SD card and a USB card reader. The video and photography functions can be activated by a button on the transmitter allowing for effortless image capture.
Over the next few weeks we will be flying and testing this great little Micro Quadcopter some more and will update this page.
