Supernova review video below of the X3.

 

 

Thanks again Supernova for your video review,always well explained-Looking forward to more.

We have done a review also of the Syma X1 also a great entry into a cheap start off with a quadcopter from Syma factory.

Just some points I am looking at for the Syma X3.

  • I noted the X1 remote remote will not work with the X3- open to comments on that.
  • The remote is a new shape,doable but a bit small for my fat fingers,really good control tho with thumbs.

  •  Good point as repeated has a 2.4G remote which means you can fly out side in a very slight wind..I did a review of the Blade MQX which is much more expensive and really not for a beginner and triple the price so see the X1 and the X3 as a cheaper entry point to quads and are really neat to fly outside.
  • My view is you need a few batteries for the X3.. found here  some cheap batteries- on Amazon .
  • I like the fact it is really light in weight and really hard to damage even props as has prop protectors.
  • Seems to me no fakes out there like the Syma 107
  • To bind to remote, turn on the quad, push throttle on remote to high then turn on remote, wait until beeps stop then push throttle back to low position, now ready to fly.

 

Would I buy the Syma X3 ?

Well yes I would, but I seem to prefer the SymaX1 as a bit more non protected on blades and prefer the battery used, but I get a bit pedantic ,so will be adding more to this review as I fly the X3 more and Supernova also about to review outside flying.

09/08/ Update

I must admit I am enjoying the X3 more, think it is because I have so many helis,quads that all have different remotes, some mode 1,others mode 2,so confusion comes in- Yes I now like the shape of the remote and learning to use just my thumbs, then I go and fly my two big Naza board quads with a Spektrum remote and takes me a few moments to relate to a different remote with fingers not thumbs, hope not confusing you guys?

 

Where To Buy.

I like Amazon.

Both myself and Bernie take our Syma helicopter reviews very seriously and try to give good and bad points on every review.

-------------------------

Good points of The Syma S111G.

The S111G box has a great design with nice colors, white red and black and lots of info on the front.

  • Opening the box has the same old problem with the remote dropping to the floor because it is not tied in like the Copter.
  • Flight time was 7 mins 46 seconds the same as a S107 G
  • The color scheme is excellent and great attention to detail, looks like the real thing in flight.
  • The rotor blades have a greater pitch than the Syma S107G that helps with the control in a tight space.
  • I do like the flashing lights underneath, and the top front light reflects on the underside of the bottom rotor, nice touch.
  • The front light looks like a search light and stays on, not flashing.
  • The rear stabilizer blades don't seem to be a problem but some people think they get effected with down draught, I did not have a problem with this.
  • As the entire body is enclosed it is difficult to see the workings but the detail and looks make up for this.
  • Hovers very well and able to move very slowly for landing on a small spot.
  • I like the  on / off switch and charge port underneath because the side panels stay free of interruption from the great lines.

 

Bad points Of the Syma S111G.

  • Seems to drift to the right slightly but easily corrected when moving around.
  • The rear, fake rotor, is fixed tight, but could be free spinning in the down draught from the control rear rotor.
  • The undercarriage is like an airfix kit part, not good for landing on anything other than a smooth table top.
  • The wheels could be free spinning, to make forward take off easier and the rear skid usable on landing.
  • The charge port is at the bottom, means it has to be on its side when charging, not an issue for me but for some ? may be.

To open the body there are 17 screws!!! this could be frustrating when a repair is needed as they dont come out very easily.When open the internals are very well designed I must say! this I was impressed with, but not impressed with the fact that the wiring is fixed to the oposite side to the mechanics this makes working on it to say the least very difficult.

To sum up I like the authentic look and attention to detail of the Syma S111G also flight control, but inside it could be better.

 

As with all Lipo batteries in these helis, please let battery cool down after flying before recharging, otherwise your battery will not last long.
