Product Description

This new quadcopter is the updated, upgraded, bigger and better version of the Syma X5C Quadcopter with HD Cam. This new and improved version still has all the same amazing capabilities as the X5C, but with a few changes to make the most of its skills. The rotor guards have been increased in size to further protect them from damage and the landing skids have been raised to give you the best possible viewing angle.

Just like its predecessor, it took us all of ten seconds to realise that the ultra-stable Syma X5SC Quadcopter HD Camera would be a great addition to our RC toys category. We were that impressed.

The Syma X5SC is a 2.4GHz Quadcopter with a built in HD 720p camera allowing you to film all of your flights, as well as taking some cheeky snaps along the way. Because who doesn’t want to take a selfie from their own quadcopter that’s flying twenty feet above them!? Take it home and remove the included micro SD card to see what it’s like to be soaring across the world.

An exciting new feature (that we've actually never heard of before) has been added to this quadcopter – the Headless Flying Function. It sounds absolutely bonkers but is actually quite simple. Basically, headless means that the quadcopter has no sense of direction itself – whatever is left to you, is left to the quadcopter and whatever is right to you, is right to the quadcopter and so on. This makes it easier to know which way to direct your quadcopter whilst flying and the optional mode can be easily selected by pressing one button on the remote control.

This quad comes with a 6 axis gyroscope and 4 channel flight making it suitable for newbies who are just starting out on 4 channel flyers, as well as the pros who want to do some sweet tricks. Yes you heard/read us right, tricks! Not only can you literally throw this quadcopter in the air to start your flight but you can also complete 360° flips and twirls. Select between two modes of flight, one for n00bs and one for the more advanced pilots and you are on your way. As it is 4 channel, you can get awesome banking abilities too making this quadcopter even more fun to whizz around.

With a range of approximately 50 metres, incredible stability, and indoor and outdoor usage, the Syma X5SC Quadcopter With HD Camera is an awesome flying beast.

Exciting times for new pilot! - Review by Steve

Hi, my daughter and her fiancé bought the SYMA X5SC for me for Christmas.
I have only just started today to get the hang of flying indoors!!
Well it is tricky if your new to quad copters,but the knack of working out the sticks on which way is quite easy as I got the hang of it easily.
I have the black one which shows the lights off better in the evening in the front room,and yes my cats are fascinated by what Santa has given to their owner to play with......lots of weird ear vending as it goes from one end of room to the other then upstairs is brilliant.

Simple but great - Review by Sacha

Love the quadcopter I've used it so much in the last couple of days now one of the rosters isn't running properly but still works. Do you know how to fix this?

great fun - Review by robert

bought this 3 days ago and still cant keep off it. its a little tricky to fly at first but starting to get the hang of it now. havnt had much play with the camera but the few pictures I have taken are quite good considering its only a 2mp camera. great price for so much fun just hope the motors last longer than some of the reviews I've read.

Great quad - Review by jon

Fantastic quadcopter, stable and nimble. Easy to fly, camera and video are a fun. Great for all the family. Pity two motors burn out after a couple of weeks, struggling to find correct spare parts.

amazing - Review by daniel

this drone is amazing but is hard to fly but thats just part of the fun. i bought this drone and now i cant stop playing with it.

It was great until the motors pack up - Review by Jeff

This was a great little practice drone,I bought 3 spare batteries on the second charge the anticlockwise motors became poor it just skidded over the grass and flipped when you hold the drone in your hand then rotate and put it in yaw it looses power lites flicker motors stop and start,that tells me the armatures have worn out that causes a short.

Come on syma £65 for this less than 10 flights
For what these cost to make stick some decent motors in.

A little tip don't use headless mode if you want some practice in for a bigger drone....

This will test you're flying skills - Review by Jeff

This is a great starter quadcoppter,for £70.00 it feels cheap and lightweight but its
quite strong once you've mastered flying in a square then reversed directions it's really nimble the flips are cool it doesn't like wind try keeping it at 2 metres high.
The more you use the batteries the longer they last.
The range isn't quite 50 metres cameras not bad for 2 mega pixel,leave it off till you get used to it.
My Grandson thinks it's cool.

Very nice staff too at Doncaster red5 thanks
