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 Syma X8W, except that you get an inbuilt GoPro Camera that comes with a protection cover and an anti-vibration mount.
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
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.
The Syma X8G comes with a recreational level built-in camera that offers 5 mega píxels of resolution. 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.
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 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.
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.
I wish you all the best, and remember that if you have any questions or comments you can post them in the comments section at the bottom of any blog post. It’s great to hear from you.
