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.
Also, 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! Because of that, 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”. Therefore, 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. However, you have to take care of this one too!

One thing you can be sure about is that Syma X12 Nano is full of awesome features, that will make you enjoy it more. The first feature that we are going to talk about is that it is an RTF drone. If you are not familiar with this term, it means that as you take it out of the box, you can enjoy flying it. Syma X12 Nano comes charged up.
Another great aspect about this drone is that it is a drone for stunts. This means that you can easily perform amazing 360 degrees rolls, flips. Syma X12 Nano will help you create lots of amazing memories with a lot of entertainment. It is perfect to be flown inside the house, being also very easy to control and very responsive as well.
And there is more.. Syma X12 Nano features a 6-axis System which allows you to perfectly perform a large variety of stunts. So if you already used the basic way of flying a drone, you will surely love the stunts, rolls, and flips that X12 Nano can perform. As a small disclaimer, we recommend you perform the stunts when the battery is fully charged. Usually when you are performing rolls and stunts battery goes away faster than usual.
The drone can be controlled from a distance of around 20 meters. Because of that, we recommend you to fly it indoors, in order to get the most out of your experience. This flight range is offered by its 2.4GHz Radio Control.

Question: Can you fly it with the stuff in the box or would you need exxes parts
It is 100% ready to fly. Just charge it up and hit the skies! But I recommend flipping through the owners manual to learn about the three flight modes,how to do flips
Question: How long does the battery last?
Answer: I have three of these, and I can tell you the battery lasts for about 3 to 5 minutes and the full charge takes less than 10 mins, however the lipo battery decays quickly and you will have to replace it after around 50 cycles
Question: does it come with a remote or an app?
Answer: It comes with a (small) true 4 channel controller, not a infared controller. The difference is that with the 4 channel you have much more reage and the signal isn’t necessarily interrupted by something that may come between the two. My personal experience is in the range of 60 – 80 feet. There is no app available to control this.
Question: radio controlled or infrared?
Answer: Radio controlled
Question: Can it flip?
Answer: Yes, it does flips in all four directions. You press the right button, hear a beep, then push right stick in direction of flip.
