Syma X5C-1 best drone under $60 of 2014
At the beginning of 2014 Sima factory launched the non-camera X5 model. After this they added a camera, so they called it X5C, and they improved this model even more with a better firmware for more stability in X5C-1 model. They kept the same attractive exterior design on all this three models.
For a price of only $54, the X5C-1 is a unmatched drone. It has on-board HD camera for aerial videos and photography and LED lights for night flights.
Adding a true 2.4GHZ Wi-Fi antenna to the X5C-1 ‘s transmitter, the flight range can almost be doubled.
Another good point on this drone is that it is very easy to find spare parts and repair your Syma x5c-1 in case of unlucky crash lands.
This drone is generally designed for the beginner pilots but its also fun to fly and take aerial pictures for advanced fliers as well. If it will be your first drone I recommend you to install the included prop guards that will save your propellers during crashes.
When H8C appeared I thought that it will be the X5C-1 killer but, after the problems with the H8C’s not-reliable motors (they brake up after few flights), the X5C-1 remained in the top of the drones under $60.
