The Syma X51 Spaceship is a very unique quadcopter. The X51 is very fast and very maneuverable. My flight times were about two minutes longer than the 5 and a half minutes stated by the manufacturer.

Syma X52C Quadcopter
The Syma X52C Sky Eye is one of Syma’s newest quadcopters. Syma is well known for quality made quadcopters. This model is one of their smaller quadcopters but it is loaded with features. To purchase this quadcopter on amazon, click the link below: http://astore.amazon.com/4a01-20/detail/B01BI9JKW0 First Impressions The X52C is about 3-3/4” by 3-3/4” in size. This puts it into the “nano” category. It appears to be well made. The camera is built in. I like the propeller guards because they help reduce propeller breakage. The gold color on the canopy looks pretty cool too. This quadcopter has bright LED lights for nighttime flying fun. The lights also flash to warn you that the batter is running out of power. What’s Included Syma has included an extra battery with the X52C. This is a huge plus that doubles your flying fun time. No more having to stop and wait for a battery to charge so you can continue flying. Syma also included are extra propellers (blades) propeller spaces. Finally, they also included a 4GB memory card and USB memory card reader for use with the quadcopter’s video camera. 1 x Syma X52C RC Quadcopter with 2MP HD Camera 1 x Transmitter 1 x USB Charging Cable 1 x Li-Po Battery 4 x Spare blades 1 x Screwdriver 1 x Bonus Battery 1 x User Manual Transmitter The transmitter needs (4) AA batteries to operate the X52C. The transmitter has a video game controller design. It feels great in your hand. The rubber coating on the joysticks is nice for keeping a solid grip. The transmitter binds to the quadcopter by simply pushing the left joystick up/down twice. The left index finger button allows for flips when used in conjunction with the right joystick. The right index finger button allows you two switch between low and high speed mode. I recommend high speed mode when flying outdoors in the breeze. Performance I had some trouble keeping the battery door closed. You really have to tuck the battery wires into the battery compartment. If not, the door will come open. While getting used to the quadcopter I landed pretty hard on the concrete floor. The landing legs kept popping off. The legs would sometimes catch on the ground causing the quadcopter to flip over. I ended up taking the legs off. Once I did it flew much better. No more catching on the ground and flipping over. The x52C is pretty easy to fly. The controls are very straight forward. Flips are easy to do using the button sequence mentioned above. Just be careful not to do too many flips. Flipping is hard on the electric motors. They can burn out when abused. This quadcopter has a decent range for outdoor use. I did have my fair share of mishaps when flying this quadcopter. Since this little quadcopter is very lightweight the wind does blow it around. Luckily, this thing is pretty robust. Even after my abuse, the X52C received absolutely no damage. The x52C does come with the ability to switch between low and high speed mode. Low speed mode is good for getting used to flying this quadcopter and for beginning flyers to hone their flying skills. High speed mode is great for flying outdoors and more experienced flyers. I really like flying in high speed mode. Syma has also built headless mode into this quadcopter. Headless mode allows theX52C to be flown in any direction regardless of which end is in front or back. In other words, when the quadacopter gets turned around you don’t have to remember that left is right and right is left. This is good for younger flyers. More experienced flyers usually don’t use this mode. Camera The X52C comes with an integral 720p HD camera. Syma has included a 4GB memory card and a USB card reader. No need to buy anything extra to enjoy your videos and photos shot while flying. The camera is ok but more for fun. Younger flyers will enjoy it though. Summary The Syma X52C is a good little flyer. It comes with an extra battery which is a huge plus in my book. I like the way it flies.

Beginners will enjoy the stability. More experienced flyers will really like the maneuverability and performance. I really enjoyed flying this quadcopter. I feel it necessary to mention that GP Toys provides customer support. Yes, real customer support via telephone. Who else offerss that?. Nobody, that I know of. The Aviax flies fast and very stable. Beginners will enjoy the stability and the headless mode. I don’t use the headless mode myself. More experienced flyers will really like the maneuverability and performance. I really enjoyed flying this quadcopter. It will perform flips, rolls and funnels with ease. The Aviax flies better than the Syma X5C. It does have a one key return feature which is a plus.

I didn’t get to push the limits of the transmitter’s distance capabilities to see how it stands up to the claims. Overall, this is an outstanding quadcopter. Five Stars! music credit: http://www.bensound.com

GPToys F1C Trooper Quadcopter
GPToys F1C Trooper Quadcopter Available on Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/jrcpxdt This is one fast and maneuverable quadcopter. I have flown many quadcopters. This one is by far one of the easiest to fly. It is well made and pretty durable too. The F1C Trooper comes equipped with a camera for recording in flight action. The LED lights are very bright. This makes nighttime flying fun. The bright blue LED makes keeping orientation very easy. You can see the light during sunny daytime flying. The battery charges in less than an hour using the included USB cable. Flight times were in the ten minute range even when fling in moderately windy conditions. I like the way the transmitter feels in my hands. Right out of the box the F1C was perfectly trimmed out. I didn’t have to make any adjustments at all. Maybe I just got lucky? The left finger button controls flipping action. the right finger button controls the speed mode settings. The remaining buttons are used to trim the quadopter. The F1C Trooper is very easy to control. In no time I was racing around the backyard with ease. The F1C easily performs flips, funnels and banked turns. The F1C can be flown in three different speed settings. I enjoy flying in the highest setting. It is great for powering through acrobatic moves. It also helps when flying in windy conditions. I do have two minor dislikes with this quadcopter. The battery connector is different from the other quadcopters that GPToys makes. The battery connector on the other GPToys also fit Syma X5C and its clones. The second dislike is that the landing gear is too short. This makes it almost impossible to take off in grassy areas. Overall, this is one good quadcopter. It is very fast and a blast to fly. Flight times are longer than quadcopters of similar size and cost. I enjoy flying it very much. Kudos to GPToys. Tips The small hex wrench used to secure the propellers is wrapped up with the USB charging cable. Be sure to pay close attention to the proper placement of the A and B propellers.

Hubsan X4 Plus H107P Quadcopter
To buy this quadcopter from Battery Superstore on Amazon visit: http://tinyurl.com/BSH107P Hubsan X4 Quadcopter Item No.H107P Frequency: 2.4GHz Channel:4CH Flight time: above 10 minutes Charging time: 30 minutes Features -Latest 6-axis flight control system with adjustable gyro sensitivity -Lightweight airframe with nice durability -4-ways flip(left,right,forward,backward) -USB charging cable allows to charge by computer -Bright LED lights. -Fly both indoor and outdoor Package Contents 1 x Hubsan X4 Plus H107P RC Quadcopter 1 x Transmitter 1 x USB Charging Cable 1 x Li-Po Battery 4 x Spare blades 4 x Blade Protection Guard 1 x Screwdriver 1 x User Manual Performance I found the Hubsan X4 Plus H107P to be a great flyer. It is fast, agile and fun to fly. The motors are fairly powerful making flips, funnels and rolls a breeze. The transmitter feels good in the hand. Since the transmitter has lot of functions it is a good idea to spend some reading the manual. The included manual is fairly well written making it easy to understand. The altitude function takes a little while to get used to. Not a big deal. If you want a fast quadcopter, this is the one for you. If you want a durable quadcopter, this one is for you. I didn't install the included propeller guards on mine. I bounced it off of walls and furniture inside the house and off of the mini barn outside. I never did break a propeller. it just kept on flying. Battery life was pretty good a quadcopter that can attain high speeds. I was able to get between 9 and 10 minutes of flight time out of each charge. Charging the included battery with the included USB charging cable took around 35 minutes. The 4 LED lights are very bright. So bright, that they can be seen in the daytime. The LED's make night flying a fun activity. Pros Great for beginners Durable Comes with prop guard and extra props Multiple modes for various skill levels Long flight times Cons Altitude Hold is not really needed for a quad of this size Battery door is a little flimsy Summary The Hubsan X4 Plus 107P is a nice quadcopter. It's fast and agile enough for more experienced quad pilots yet tame and stable enough for newer fliers. It is loaded with features and comes with a nice array of extra accessories like the optional propeller guard and extra propellers. I would recommend this quadcopter to anyone. Buy with confidence.

GP Toys H20 Aviax - Waterproof Quadcopter - Test and Review
GPTOYS makes great quadcopters. Their quads and parts are always a cut above. This one is well designed and well constructed. This is the second GPTOYS quadcopter that I have owned. GPTOYS proclaims this quadcopter to be waterproof. After extensive testing over the course of several wet days, I can also state that GPTOY’s claims are true. I wouldn’t buy this quadcopter just to have an excuse to stand out in a rainstorm. However, I would buy this quadcopter for flying on days where there is a light mist or drizzle. It would also be great for flying just after a big rain when the ground is very wet. I like that I don't have to worry about water damaging the quadcopter's electronics. First impressions I have the GPTOYS Black Aviax quadcopter. The H20 Aviax matches the Black model in quality. Almost everything about these quadcopters is great. They are well made. The fit and finish is very nice. I really like the color scheme on this one. It is easy to see in the air. What Is Included 1 - Quadcopter 1 - LCD Transmitter 1 - USB Cable 2 - 3.7V 650mAh LiPo Batteries Huge Plus! 1 - Screwdriver 4 - Spare Blades (mine came with 8) 4 - Prop Guards 1 * User Manual Construction The H20 is pretty solid. I have had some hard crashes with mine. The quad suffered no damage to speak of. I like how the propellers are attached with small quick release pins. No fumbling with tiny screws that strip out or get lost. I wish they would include a couple of extra pins. As stated above I received at total of 8 extra propellers. The propellers can be tricky to get into the correct orientation. See my photos attached to this review for the proper location of the propellers marked A & B. The H20 comes with nice bright LED’s for orientation and night time flying fun. This quad does not come with a camera. It does have a camera mount if you choose to add a camera. Transmitter The transmitter that is included feels substantial. It doesn’t have a cheap and empty plastic feel to it. It is a different design than the transmitter that is supplied with the Black Aviax. This transmitter requires 4 AA batteries. (not included) The buttons work nicely. The transmitter comes with functioning trim buttons for all the quadcopter’s directional fine tuning. Changing speeds is easy with the press of a button. It has a nice LCD display. Batteries The H20 comes with TWO 3.7V 650mAh Lipo batteries. Finally! Quadcopter manufactures are listening to buyers who want more than one battery. It took about an hour to charge the two batteries. I got about 8.5 minutes of flight time out of each battery. Be sure to practice safe battery charging and storage procedures. Lipo batteries can be dangerous if not used properly. Performance The GPTOYS H20 Aviax is a pleasure to fly rain or shine. Wet conditions do not hamper the H20. It has 4 separate speed modes. I have flown quite a few quadcopters and have a good deal of experience flying. That being said, I enjoy the highest speed setting myself. Higher speed settings offer more power to help overcome higher winds. New flyers would be advised to start on the lower settings work their way up as they gain confidence and flying experience. The H20 is capable of some pretty fast speeds in the higher settings. It is very maneuverable and agile. Don’t be afraid to push the limits of this quadcopter. It is also very durable. I crashed it hard a couple of times. The worst damage was a broken prop guard. I ended up removing them anyway. Newbies may want to keep them on until they get used to flying. The yaw rate is good as are the pitch and roll rates. The H20 is quite a bit of fun to zip around the back yard. As you can see in the video you can perform flips and rolls if you desire. Just be careful doing flips as it can be hard on the motors if you perform to many in a row. I was able to get out to 70 yards or so before the quadcopter lost its signal. It was raining each time I flew. On a clear day the range should be extended quite a bit. Conclusion I highly recommend the GPTOYS G20 Aviax quadcopter. It is well built and durable. The fact that is comes with 8 extra propellers and 2 batteries makes it an excellent value. New flyers and experienced flyers will both like this quadcopter.
