Which Syma Quadcopter should you get?

Syma make some great quadcopters. True, they aren’t going to compete with the newest racing quad on speed or manoeuvrability but that’s not what they are made for.

Syma’s quadcopters are mainly entry level toy grade quads that are jam packed with features and are sold at low prices. Generally this makes them great value and hard to go wrong with.

One indicator of this is how often they are copied. If you have been looking at quadcopters (retail quadcopters anyway) you have probably noticed that a lot of them look very similar. That’s not an accident, its because so many firms have seen the success that Syma had and have built clones. Some are good and some are not, but generally the original is always a safe bet.

 

Why buy a Syma Quadcopter?

This site is mainly about racing type quads. They tend to be expensive and require a fair bit of skill and knowledge just to get flying. When most people get started with quadcopters or flying FPV though, they tend to want something simple that they can take out of the box and just fly. It also helps if its not a $500 beast that doesn’t include a battery! If that’s you and you are looking to bake a start in this hobby or get an inexpensive first quad to try it out then a Syma quadcopter if a very good and safe option.

 

So now that you have decided where to start, you need to sift through the range. They all look very similar which can make it confusing. The normal rule of the more you pay, he more you get applies here but stop when you get he features that you want because you can’t really upgrade these so your next move will probably be a totally new quad that fits the flying style you discover with your Syma quadcopter.
