Syma X12 Nano
Syma X12 Nano has a unique look. There is a white LED in the front that is incorporated into the body of the quad and juts out prominently it reminds me of some robots. The quadcopter rests on little foam style bumpers and sits on the ground significantly.
The white LED in front is very bright. On top of the quad are 4 smaller LEDs, two green towards the front and two red towards the back.
My initial impression of the controller was that it was too big, especially compared to the size of the Syma X12 Nano. However, it feels good in hands.
The Syma X12 Nano Quadcopter is very stable and flies very well indoors in “low speed” mode.
It is fast! It makes it trickier to fly indoors (unless you have lots of room), but it shines when in this mode outside. The increased pitch and roll enable you to fly this quadcopter in very breezy conditions. Unfortunately, the extremely slow yaw rate is unaffected by “high speed” mode.
Flips are fairly tight with little altitude lost on a fresh battery. Flip performance degrades substantially as the battery drains so best flips are accomplished within the first couple minutes of a fresh battery.
The quadcopter can be thrown w/out power in whatever direction or position (right side or upside down) and will “self-right.” This is fun to do and having the super bright white front LED aids significantly in regaining orientation during this maneuver.
This quadcopter seems to be quite durable, not unlike our best quadcopters list. Though, you have to take care with this one too!
