With more than 10 years of experience, Syma shows us that it is not in vain to be among the market leaders in terms of the drones world. Innovations are the basis of a major status when you want your name to be known in the world. This is why Syma has earned its well-deserved place in the leading manufacturers of flying gadgets, so now in this Syma X8 Pro quadcopter review we will present one of the most suitable drones for beginners and why not for kids.
Even if it looks like other well-known drone models, the X8 Pro is somehow unique. Made of plastic like most of the drones, the X8 Pro can be bought in two versions red or white. Made of lightweight materials, the Syma X8 Pro has a total weight of 2.1kg with battery. It measures 50 x 50 x 19cm assembled, indicating a fairly large drone, yet you will see how simple it is to use it.
Alongside each arm there is a LED, red and green, indicating the head and tail of the drone.
Here’s what you will find in the Syma X8 Pro package:
- Syma X8 Pro quadcopter without the camera
- FPV camera
- Remote control
- Four propeller and propeller guards
- SD card reader
- Screwdriver and a small wrench
- User manual
The X8 Pro is an improved version of Syma X8 SW, where it remained the same:
- Camera: 720p video and 1 MP photos
- Height control
- Headless flight mode
- A battery of 7.4 Volts of 2000mAh
- Platform and dimensions
After all, let’s see what’s new with the Syma X8 Pro
The first and most important thing, we have GPS. The precision and safety will be the first, so the X8 Pro is able to return to the starting point with the help of the GPS with a single touch of a button, also in case of losing signal.
Another change from the previous model, the flight distance is improved. If the X8 SW has only 70 meters, the X8 Pro can reach 150 and 300 meters.
The simplicity with which you can use Syma X8 Pro is incredible, so it’s recommended for beginners, and even for kids under the supervision of an adult can learn the secrets of flying the drones. This may also be due to the fact that the Syma X8 Pro can be used with the smartphone via the available app.
- Can carry an action camera
- No Gimbal
- Brushed Motors
The flight time of about 9 minutes exceeds some expectations, the X8 Pro being quite large, it would be thought that flight time is more limited. If you still think it is not so much, don’t hesitate to buy some spare batteries, which will ensure continuous flight and complete recording of your adventure.
Those who have little experience will take about 1 minute to assemble this drone, this is again in the PRO category for those who are looking for an easy to assemble and ready to fly as fast as possible a drone. The remote control is also easy to use but it is advisable to read the user manual.
In the end
It will be hard to find a better drone at this price than the Syma X8 Pro, with GPS also included and its great quality. The aerial photos will not disappear too soon and with the X8 Pro, you have the opportunity to practice and take advantage of the simplicity and quality of this gadget.
