My Review Of The Syma X12 Nano Quadcopter

Well not so good to start with as it arrived late and package damaged, no fault from Amazon but just postage services with no respect on small parcels from overseas, especially to Australia.

So here are the Specifications:

  • Syma X12 Nano Quadcopter
  • One included (and integrated) 3.7V 100mAh Li-Po battery
  • 2.4 Ghz Transmitter
  • One USB charging cable
  • Extra set of propellers
  • Miniature screwdriver (for aircraft disassembly)
  • Instruction manual

My Part Review Of The Syma X12

I say part review because I got a damaged remote and need to get another to do full review: However good info for you below on what I call Nano Mini Drones.

Do I Like What I See Of The Syma X12?

Being a nano quadcopter or as most say "Drone" it is small about 45mm x 45mm and weights in around 13.4 grams. So this baby is light and takes crashes well. You can charge by USB. The led lights are green for the front and red for the behind and show themselves on top of drone. The front of the quad has a bright white led light witch helps my orientation where I am flying.

The concept of the Syma X12 is good, flying is easy even tho my remote has a broken throttle stick as received by. It took me 18 minutes for first charge and gave me 5 - 6 minutes of flying, about average for other mini quads.

I have both the Pocket Drone Fq777 and the Cheerson CX 10  and did a review on them here Have to say you should read my reviews as prefer them over the Syma X12, but as said before I received a damaged one, so waiting on a new one to compare.

The only downside to these drones is no way to swap batteries on the go to use new charged batteries like the Syma X5C so after a 5 minute flight you need to recharge, make sure you wait at least 10 minutes before recharging a hot battery, reason battery will not last.

Would I Buy A Syma X12 Drone

Well yes and no, reason as said earlier the one reviewing was damaged on arrival. So I need another to review better. However as video shows people feel it is good, so if you are interested my buying place.
