Syma X8C Overview

     The Syma X8C quadcopter is a full sized outdoor drone. It comes in at around 350mm and has 9 inch propellers. The Syma X8C drone is surprisingly cheap given its feature set and in part this is down to the use of brushed motors. These are the less powerful option but these ones are huge and give a fair amount of power to spare.
The X8C is one of a family of 3 drones along with the Syma X8G  which carries a GoPro style camera and the Syma X8W which has WiFi FPV.

Syma - X8C Venture - Review and Flight

Syma X8C features

Ok, so now lets dig into the real features and specs of the Syma X8C so that you can compare it against other quads and decide if it meets your needs.

Syma X8C flight time

The X8C advertises a 5 – 8 minute flight time. Bear in ,mind that that advertised tuime will go up and down depending on how aggressively you fly the quad. Pushing it to the limit constantly will reduce the flight time as will adding a better, heavier camera. On the other hand, if you fly very gently then you will likely get longer. Its also possible to get a Syma X8c battery upgrade which will obviously increase your flight time again.

Syma X8C FPV

 The Syma X8c does not have a FPV option. If you want to fluy in FPV mode, you will want the X8W which has a WiFi FPV camera. It is possible to mod the X8C to enable FPV flying but for the costs and benefits, you will probably be better off just buying the X8W which is set up for that out of the box.

Syma X8C headless mode

The Syma X8C has a headless mode built in. That means that it does not matter which way the quadcopter is facing. Forward, back, left ant right are all relative to where the quad is in relation to you and its starting position. This is a very useful feature for a beginner pilot.

Syma X8C vs Syma X8G

The X8G is basically the same as the X8C except that it has a 5mp GoPro style camera. That enables you to take much better footage but will also affect the handling because it is heavier. Stick with the X8C unless you really want  great video footage.

Syma X8C vs Syma X8W

The Syma X8W drone is the same 350 size quad as the X8C but it has a different camera that will broadcast ‘real time’ video (there is actually a delay on all WiFi FPV systems) back to a screen or in this case a phone so that you can fly by seeing wha the quad see. This is a different style of flying that requires different skills to master but the Syma X8W is very easy to fly so it won’t be a problem.
One thingg to consider though is that there is a significant lag. That is why all racing quads use 5.8ghz video rather than Wifi and so you won’t be able to to fast proximity flying with this quadcopter.

Syma X8C Range

The X8C drone has a a range of around 100M. That isn’t a huge amount for a FPV quad but for line of sight flying then it really is plenty. You have to think about how far away you can actually see. The headless mode helps because you don’t have to worry about which way is forward but, at 100m you will be struggling to se the drone at all so this is actually plenty range.

Syma X8C return to home

One of the coolest features on a quad it the return to home function or ‘one key return’. Basically this lets you press a key and the quadcopter will fly itself back to you or more accurately back to its start point. This is accomplished by using GPS and marking its starting pointy. Unfortunately the X8C does not have on key return but its headless mode does make flying much easier.
