The Syma X8G Review

The Syma X8G Review

Welcome to the Syma X8G review.

There aren’t too many reviews of Syma X8G online as it is a brand new product and not much is known about it in the marketplace. If you’re looking to buy the Syma X8G, I hope that you find the information that you’re looking for in this review.

The Syma X8G quadcopter is a part of the Syma 2015 series of quadcopters, the other quadcopters in this series being the Syma X8W Wi-Fi FPV and the Syma X8C.

Unlike the Syma X8C and Syma X8W WiFi FPV, the new Syma X8G is different because it comes with an inbuilt GoPro Style 8 MegaPixel HD Camera. Indeed, the “G” in Syma X8G  stands for the GoPro Style camera. It also comes with a Headless mode along 4CH and a 6-axis Gyro system.

What’s in the Box?

You get the Syma X8G quadcopter, which comes in a glossy silver color, as well as black prop-guards, propellers and landing gears . It’s pretty much the same as what you would get with the Syma X8C and The Syma X8G ReviewSyma X8W, except that you get an inbuilt GoPro Camera that comes with a protection cover and an anti-vibration mount.

Flying Experience

The Syma X8G quadcopter is above average in weight, but it is very stable in air. It can implement several flight maneuvers. It can fly against stiff wind resistance and is easy to control. It can fly comfortably both indoors and outdoors.

Size and Color

The Syma X8G weighs 1,600 grams or 3.5 pounds, which makes it heavier than the average quadcopter. It is only available in a glossy silver color

Flight Time

The flight time that you get with the Syma X8G depends on the payload it carries. Lower the payload, higher the flight time. So, it should give you a flight time of 12 minutes, which is slightly below what you would get with a majority of the quadcopters in this range. But if you keep the payload low, the flight time can be increased.

Camera

The Syma X8G comes with a recreational level built-in camera that offers 5 mega píxels of The Syma X8G Reviewresolution. Now, 5 mega pixels resolution is not the best you will get, so may not be suitable for film and professional drone photography. But if your goal is to take shots just for fun, then you shouldn’t be too disappointed with the Syma X8G.   The Syma X8G shoots videos in 1080p, which should be enough for your basic video recording needs.

Controls

The Syma X8G can be controlled by a standalone remote controller. You will have to practice flying it for a couple of days so that you can get the hang of it. The Syma X8G can fly up to a distance of 100 meters from the person handling the controller.The Syma X8G Review

Built-in Battery

The Syma X8G is powered by a 2,000 mAh battery. The battery light is slightly less than average for quadcopters in this category, but it is still pretty reasonable. The best way to increase the battery life is to lower the payload on the quadcopter.

Reasonably Priced

The best part of Syma X8G is the price. It costs just $107 (Amazon.com) along with the 8MP HD Camera.  It is perfectly priced for an entry level drone, and can be used for film and photography as well as recreation or hobby. I recommend the Syma X8G highly to beginners looking for an easy to use drone to get started and affordable with.

      Hi Theresa, I´m glad that I helped you.

      Yes, sometimes it could be a little bit confusing choosing the drone we want, when we don´t have an idea yet.

      Feel free to browse my website, you have many options.

          HI Eddie the Syma X8G was not designed to carry additional weight other than the camera. If you are looking for a drone to carry additional weight other than the camera, you may want to take a look at the Flytrex Sky (Delivery Drone) the world’s first cloud connected drone.

          I hope that helped you.

    Hi there,

    Very reasonable price I would say.
    How high it will go, any experience with that? What is the limit.
    Battery is a bit weak, but as you said, keep the payload low, it should better.

      Hi Ravel, I agree with you about the price. In my opinion the Syma X8G it is perfectly priced for an entry level drone.

      The Syma X8G can fly up to a distance of 100 meters from the person handling the controller.

      About the battery, it should give you a flight time of 12 minutes, but if you keep the payload low, the flight time can be increased.

      You can also buy additional batteries to increase your flight time.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Hi Najim, I haven´t try it with a Canon 5D Mark III, but i think you can’t. But you can attach a GO-Pro 3 or 4 to it. You can fly the Syma X8G up to 100M from the remote control.

      Hope it helped you.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Hi Tysen, the Syma X8G does not come equipped with wifi, so it does not support FPV, but the Syma X8W comes with WiFi, and you can use it for FPV.

      Hope it helped you.

      Thanks for your comment.
