Syma X8G Review

It will not anything wrong if I say, the camera is GoPro type. The camera works like a charm. It boasts an 8.0 MP HD camera, an upgrade to an earlier version with 5.0 MP. Company even promises a refund if camera comes out as fake. As per your preference, you can go with 60-fps in 720p resolution or 30-fps in 1080p resolution. The images and videos are clear and are stored in the 4GB memory card that sits within the quadcopter. Camera can be tilted for different views. Camera can only be used when attached to the quadcopter.

I liked the FPV (First Person View) it did was amazing. I recorded the video in FullHD 1920×1080 resolution, it comes out crisp and clear picture quality. The 60fps HD 1280×720 is more smother that i prefer. Its upto you both resolutions are simply awesome.

Battery Life

It uses a 7.4V 2000 mAh Li-Po battery to power the drone. For the sheer size and heavy camera, I find the battery life to be decent. Well 7-8 minutes of flying time is not exactly heaven, but the performance makes up for it. I personally would like a little more powerful battery for this quad-rotorcraft. By doing this Syma X8G review i was little disappointed. Waiting for almost 3 hours (200 minutes) for recharging battery is a big turn-off. So, probably in coming models this will be taken care of. We all know that performance comes with some cost, in this case it battery juice. I personally don’t care for low battery backup because I want my video to be captured in full glory.
