SYMA X20W Quacopter Drone Review/Preview

Remember the Syma X20 quacopter drone? The small drone with altitude hold mode? Well Syma is back again with an upgrade for the Syma X20, the Syma X20W, it is a drone with the same style just like the X20 but this time it is loaded with more features.

Well let us get to know more about the Syma X20W Quadcopter drone, let’s have a review/preview of the drone.

Design and Flying Features – as I have said, the drone has the same design with the Syma X20, a drone with a wide flat body and a camera on the front. Still it has the same measurement with the X20 having a 10.50 x 10.50 x 2.50 cm body. Flying features still include the basic Up / down / left turn / right turn / forward / back / left side fly / right side fly, the drone has an altitude hold mode, one key take-off and landing, headless mode as well as 3D roll. Syma added the real-time FPV via WIFI that is missing from the X20, now users can stream live images of from X20W right on their smartphone which makes it more enjoyable to fly.

Features and Accessories – aside from the additional FPV features, there are some changes on the remote control also, instead of the small remote control Syma used a much bigger controller for the Syma X20W, we have seen this type of remote control on other medium size drone of Syma, I guess the reason for this is to accommodate the additional feature that has been added to the drone, that is the FPV. The remote control features a smartphone clip, allowing users to use their smartphone as a remote viewer for the drone.

Before I forgot, the 0.3 MP camera is also built in the drone, it is fixed on the front of the drone, and cannot be tilted which is kinda dissapointment. Anyways still it is a good small drone with FPV support, its a good drone to have especially for those who are looking for a small drone with FPV support.

The Syma X20W Quadcopter drone, comes with mobile phone holder, a USB charging cable, card reader as well as a spare propeller. Check out the full specifications below of the Syma X20W drone.
