It is very cheap, stable quadcopter and easy to fly. With 2MP camera allow a decent FPV experience with the small delay and also has a well-designed body.


FPV sometimes suffers from high latency; the battery is not as well as other quadcopters have the same price, so it has below average time, and the wind can make it hard to control.

    • Do not put the product/battery in hight temperature and heated place
    • Do not put in wet place
    • Check all parts of the drone regularly and make sure they do not have any damage
    • Use soft cloth to clean the product


Firstly, you have to bring the Syma X5SW Quadcopter outside the box, set it up and press the on/off power switch up. Then opening the battery cover and connecting with dash receiver. Before enclosing battery into the fuselage, you have to close battery cover turn on the power and push the throttle lever to the highest position, pull it back to the lowest. You will hear one clear sound from the transfer which shows that the Quadcopter has entered into the pre-fly state.

If you want to hover up and down, you will pull the throttle up, then the Quadcopter flies upward, it is similar to pulling throttle down. About forward and backward, you push the direction lever up or down, and the drone flies forward or back. Turning left and right/side-ward fly, you have to pull the direction lever/the throttle left or right.

Fine-tuning operation: when the Quadcopter keeps flying forward/backward, you can change it by pressing the fine-tuning button down/up. It has the same control as sideward fly fine-tuning and turns left/right fine-tuning.
