Syma has an upcoming small drone, the Syma X20 Pocket drone, a small drone packed with Syma drone features that we love in its medium size drones. So far the drone is not yet available, but most of the online shopping site is now offering it on arrival notice, (as the time of this writing) for the drone. Well what do we know about the SYMA X20 Pocket drone? Here are some few facts about the pocket drone, let’s get to know more about it check out our preview/review of the SYMA X20 pocket drone.

Controlling the Drone –   this pocket drone measures 10.5 X 10.5 X 2.5cm, it is not that pretty small but it is still in the small category, the drone just like other newest drone of SYMA is loaded with several flying features aside from 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.

With a battery of 180 mAh the drone cast last up to 5 minutes of flying time which is pretty standard in this size of drone. So far you can control the drone up to 20 meters, we just don’t know if there is a beep warning sign when it is out of range, anyways just in-case you lost control of the drone, a one key automatic landing will be a huge help.

Features and Accessories – the drone comes with a propeller protector and a 1 removable battery 180 mAh Lipo battery, so far there is no detailed specs for the SYMA X20 pocket drone, other than what is posted on shopping sites. On the rendered images on its product page, the drone shows a camera built on the front of it, but we are not sure as the basic spec did not state whether it is really equipped with it or not. So far based on the looks it will be one of the contender for the affordable pocket drone, the altitude hold mode will surely going to be a big hit for beginners.

Pricing – the initial price of the drone is about $25 U.S dollars but expect that this will drop to around $18 to $20 dollars, it is currently on pre-sale/arrival notice, so the price is not yet fixed, we will let you know once the Syma X20 is available for purchase.
