  1. I got this drone for my birthday and it was the first one I've experienced. Unfortunately mine just keeps going up and doesn't hover. Do I have to do something with the trimming?

  2. Just got mine today. It came with 2 batteries. I struggle with control. The Manual says nothing about trimming the way you explained it. When my batteries charge I'll try again.

  3. Wifi? Does the wifi control the drone or is it used just to stream the video? I'm guessing that wifi may also control the drone as you show controlling it with the phone, but also can use the controller which I guess uses it's own 2.4G . That would seem a lot of work & power required to Control the video stream & flight direction, along with the 2.4G Just curious how it all works & would I get a better performance just using/buying an X5UC

  4. guys i need your recommendations. i have a syma x11 and a attop sky dreamer plus. i rly like both of them even tho they fly different. i like fast and zippy but still stable quads a lot. i dont know what else to get. my price range is 35 bucks so not too much there. something with a camera woul be cool but not a nessecity. but its pretty easy to find quads with cams in that price area as the syma x5uw is around there

  5. I got one of these for Christmas and had almost no clue on how to fly it. I started to get pretty good at it except I could never get the app or the camera to work and had no clue what any of the buttons were except the auto take off and flip button and how to maybe fly around a bit without crashing after I got good at it except I kind of just tossed it aside. I just learned so much about it and now I can't wait to get it charged back up and try out all the new features I learned about. The trimming thing is also where I had a problem so that was awesome you showed how to fix that. This was an amazing review and thank you for all the help. Keep up the good work. I do have one question though. Do you think I can strap or attach a action camera to this drone and still be able to fly with it?

  6. Great video! I just had mine out for a little today, this bird fly's very well, very stable. Con's, the camera sucks, and the instruction's also suck. Example: page 8 switching off aircraft method 3: When the aircraft is in flight, press the B button, the aircraft fell to the ground and slowly closed the aircraft." What the hell does that even mean"?…..Anyway's keep flyin.

  7. Great video,i have the syma x8hw and was wondering what you think of that model, i dont know if you already did a video of the syma x8hw, if you did not are you going to review it?

  8. WiFi range sucks. Like u said u must keep it close by and the video cuts in and out. Ur better off adding a small camera to do FPV. $18 FPV on Amazon.

  9. Yes, excellent video for a beginner llike me! One question on the gyro setup, I see in the owners manual the both control sticks down and to the right, but I don’t see where it tells you to also go both sticks down and to the left for setup? I see sticks down and left for a headless situation?
