Syma X8G offers some pretty exciting features that may interest any enthusiast. Headless mode – This mode allows you to control the drone based on your location relative to the drone, and not its direction. For example, if the quadrocopter has moved due to some obstacle and changed its orientation, it won’t be easy to control the device from the ground. When Headless mode is on, the drone can move either forward or backward, depending on your position. It means that the forward direction no longer relies on the course of the nose of the drone. Air stunts – Syma X8G is intended for fans who already have some piloting experience.

It has an 8-megapixel HD camera, due to which aerial photography carried out. It supports recording video in HD 720p and 1080p. It guarantees you pretty good quality aerial shots. The camera, however, cannot operate separately from the drone. It must be connected to the Syma X8G because it does not have its power and management functions. The 8-megapixel camera works pretty well for entertainment purposes. But if you need professional photos, then you will need something better. If you plan to fly for pleasure and want to take some aerial photographs during the flight, this is your ideal drone.

Flight Time & Controller

You have to understand that take-off weight plays an essential role in measuring the total flight time. And here our drone did not disappoint – having a sufficiently small total weight and can provide a smooth take-off. The average flight time provided by this drone is about 12 minutes, while the standard flight time for nearly all drones is about 10 minutes. Since the drone equipped with a powerful 8-megapixel camera, the battery must be more significant to provide a longer flight time. The drone can fly longer with less payload.

Syma X8G equipped with a standard control panel. Despite the traditional design, the controller works well. One of its dozy qualities is that it is lightweight, which means that you can manipulate it effortlessly while the drone is in the air. For the operation of the remote control, you need 4 AA batteries. The controls are more or less easy: two sticks, two excellent tuning controls, and side switches, as well as a power button and battery indicator. A small problem with the controller is that it does not have a camera mode, which means that if you want to check what is happening with it at the moment, you will have to follow its LEDs. In addition, the controller offers you two different modes to enhance your experience. The first – mode 1 – standard, mode 2 – high-speed. Finally, it is worth noting that this control panel allows you to transmit a signal at a distance of up to 100 meters.

Flight Characteristics

For a drone of this size, the Syma X8G shows pretty decent flight performance. It has a 6-axis flight control system, which contributes to a very organized and directional flight. This drone is suitable for flying indoors and outdoors, and it also shows good results in moderate winds. It is due to heavier weight and high engine power. This drone is also capable of performing some air stunts, such as a 360-degree flip. During night flights, LED lights will help you not to lose sight of it. The Headless mode makes flying much more comfortable, especially when you want to focus on shooting. The favorable distance for the drone to work is about 150 meters from the operator. The maximum flight time shown by the drone is 12 minutes, without a camera. With a camera, this figure decreases to about 9 minutes.

As for the battery, it is pretty good. 2000mAh capacity is more than enough to support the drone. For the quadrocopter to work, the battery voltage should be 7.4 V, which means that it can charge via a USB cable. Given the amount of battery capacity, you can count on good performance flight time. However, a large battery also requires a long charging time – about 200 minutes.
