Pros and Cons of the Syma X20

The X20 is the base version of the X20  and has no camera. There is a camera called the X21 and a WiFi FPV version X21W. The difference from the camera for all 3 models is the same controls.

The battery is built-in and so are the prop guards. Only the props can be removed. But like a lot of pocket drones batteries are not removable, the JJRC is diffrent

Flying time I get around 6 minutes, depending how crazy I want to fly this bird.

Charging takes around 40 minutes, which is a bit of a pain, but most are like that. Always let the battery cool down for 15 minutes before recharging as can really impede how long the battery will live.

The X20 flies well out of the box. It is really easy for beginners, and also to do 3d flips.

Also has headless mode which is a great bonus and one key take off.

The remote is good and bigger than most pocket drone controllers.

syma-x20-remoteThere are orientation lights at both the front and back which help in orientation — red lights for the front and green for the rear.


Flight performance is really good for the X20. It flies very well and steady and also altitude hold is pretty good compared to other drones. The X20 is great for beginners. 3D flips are performed very well. Earlier drones that feature altitude hold do not flip well and tend to plunge but this is not the case with the X20.Two speed modes are available on the X20.
