If you ask a man what type of gift they want, the most likely answer you will get back is, "a drone!".  

That's after the big stuff like a new car or truck of course, ha-ha, but who really has the money for those things?? If you are looking for a great gift to buy a special guy in your life that won't cost you an arm and a leg, look no further than the Syma X5C 2.4G 6 Axis Gyro HD Camera RC Quadcopter with 2.0MP Camera.

This review is for the Syma X5c Quadcopter drone we bought my dad for Father's Day 2015.
This drone is rated one of the top 10 drones on the market.  It is also an Amazon Best Seller!

The Syma X5C 2.4G 6 Axis Gyro HD Camera RC Quadcopter with 2.0MP Camera is very reasonably priced and actually is on sale right now though I don't know for how long.  When I bought the Syma X5c Quadcopter from Amazon it was $50 but it actually happens to be ON SALE RIGHT NOW for $41.93!!   We also purchased a four pack of batteries and charger for $10, and some extra propellers for $2, both from Amazon as well.  Note that my dad has yet to need to use a single extra propeller after a year and a half of use.  You can view this exact drone I purchased here: Syma X5C 2.4G 6 Axis Gyro HD Camera RC Quadcopter with 2.0MP Camera.  As you can see it is indeed on sale right now!!

This was the first drone my dad ever owned and he loves it and so do the grandkids!  We were over at his house last weekend playing with it in fact. 

I wanted to wait to do a review of this drone so that my dad could have a full year to use it and see what he thinks.  Now that it has been over a year since he got his Syma X5C Quadcopter , I am more than happy to publish his critique of it.

Summary of Syma X5C Quadcopter According to Amazon Page:
  • Equipped with HD camera and 2GB memory card
  • Perform flips at the press of a button with 360 degree eversion, Wind resistant and can be flown indoors or outdoors
  • 6-axis Gyro stabilization system ensures maximum stability during flight
  • 7 Minute flight time and 100 minute charge time.
Okay, now that we know what it looks like, let's get to my dad's critique of this drone:

Pros of the Syma X5C 2.4G Quadcopter:
-The controls are simple and it is easy to learn how to fly. 
-The drone is light weight and can take abuse of novice fliers.  Drone doesn't fall apart or break when it falls to the ground.
-Drone has a built in camera that makes things extra fun and the picture quality is pretty good to boot. 

Cons of the Syma X5c 2.4G Quadcopter: 
-The camera is on a static mount so it moves as the Quadcopter pitches and rolls.  It would be better with a self-stabilizing gimbaled camera that would allow you to take level shots independently of the attitude of the platform.  Obviously, a more sophisticated camera would make things a lot more expensive though.
-Doesn't come with extra batteries. These need to be purchases separately. 

His Overall Thoughts: Great drone to learn on and really fun to fly for hours! 
My Overall Thoughts: Great quality drone for the price!!
