SYMA X5UW Review

The SYMA X5UW is a great quadcopter and the newest from the leader in beginner quads Syma.

This particular version – the SYMA X5UW is the ultimate version of the SYMA X5. it has an sd card slot built in so ‘t need ot record sub standard video to your phone.

Weighing in at 120g, the SYMA X5UW requires no registration to fly. You get a USB cable, probguards and 4 spare props in the package as well as the obvious things like a transmitter. The SYMA X5UW batter is not ideal because it comes in a proprietor case that means you need to buy branded batteries when you want more to extend flight time.
On the flip side though, it does mean that it fits perfectly so there is no movement in flight.
A charging station is available for the SYMA X5UW batteries separately.

It is a nice looking quadcopter that comes in red and the SYMA X5UW has LEDs etc.

One feature that separates the SYMA X5UW is that it has a power button so that it does not have to power up immediately when you plug the battery in. You need ot hold it down as well so there wont be any accidents.

Trimming is a bit different as there are no buttons and you instead need to use combinations of the sticks to trim the controls of the SYMA X5UW. Check the manual for that one.

The SYMA X5UW flys very well once it is set up though.

Bumper buttons control the auto take off and landing on the SYMA X5UW as well as flips, recording video and taking photos.

Gyro calibration is done with the sticks and you enter headless mode with a click of the SYMA X5UW’s right thumb stick. (although you are unlikely to need that if you are flying in FPV)

The SYMA Go app is great and works as you would expect.

All in all, the SYMA X5UW is a great beginner quad that is packed with features. Its not going to compete against a racing quad but that’s not what it’s about.

The fact that it is so often copied should give you some idea about what the SYMA X5UW is like.
