    Syma X5C-1 Modifications thread

    I had some Venom batteries and was getting 1/3 less flight time as compared to some no name batteries I had with the same mAh. I ended up returning them.

    Syma X5C Clone newbie-bind?

    Check to be sure all the trims are centered. It will do that when it's close to the ground. It's riding on top of it's own prop wash. Pull it up 2-3 ft off the floor if it's still drifting back and to the left add a little forward trim & some right trim.

    A cheap/beginner drone with (good) camera

    I wouldn't worry about a camera till you learn to fly. I would suggest getting either a Syma X5C-1 or the Nihui U807 both are very good starter quads.

    First FPV

    When the video first started I thought to myself why is he trying to fly fpv nose in. I'm still collecting the needed equipment, but everything I have read or watched about fpv flying said to always have forward movement that it's real hard to hover in fpv especially when starting out. There...
