Noticed others are having the same problem my buddies and I had when I first received the Syma X1 Quad, they should UPDATE THE INSTRUCTIONS ASAP
I had an issue with the radio transmitter not binding with the Syma X1 quad and there IS A EASY SOLUTION.
The instructions are lacking in this area and are responsible I'm sure with a lot of frustration and probably returns.
In between my friends and I we have over 6 of these to date, they all work with this procedure that I quickly wrote for another amazon user.
SYMA X1 QUAD - RADIO TRANSMITTER BIND PROCESS
IMPORTANT SOLUTION TO ALL OWNERS - RADIO NOT WORKING WITH THE SYMA X1 QUAD
1. CONNECT BATTERY TO QUAD, THE LED WILL FLASH SLOWLY
2. LED WILL BEGIN TO FLASH RAPIDLY,.... IMMEDIATELY TURN ON RADIO TRANSMITTER
3. LED IS SOLID, BIND PROCESS COMPLETE. READY TO FLY
After connecting the battery to the quad the led will begin to flash slowly. Have the radio ready because the led will soon begin to flash quickly looking for a radio signal. As soon as the led begins to flash quickly immediately turn on radio. The Syma Quad led on the board will then be a SOLID on indicating the bind process is complete. You are now ready to fly or crash your quad. You only have to do this bind process once. From now on you can turn the radio transmitter on first and then connect the battery to the quad.
** It's important to have the quad on a level surface once you connect the battery so the gyros know what is level, do this EVERY TIME **

This thing is amazingly fun. My high expectations were exceeded by a good margin. I can't believe how inexpensive and durable this incredible little aircraft is.
Be warned, it's MUCH harder to fly than I had imagined. I figured that it would hover, I would press the stick, it would move, I'd release the stick and it would stop moving and hover. Hahahahaha, nope. The controls are very touchy and you will have to actually learn to fly. HOWEVER, the steep learning curve made it MORE fun. Every flight session I could feel myself getting better. The first flight was nothing but crashes, but after a few more flights I got it to hover... And then move around... And then land on targets. Now with a couple of hours of flight time under my belt I can move it around competently and even fly in reverse (with the craft facing towards me), make gently banking turns, and recover from losing control. It's responsive enough that an experienced pilot should be able to whip around like Starbuck piloting her Viper. Look around online and you will find some good instructional videos. Anyone who has played video games should be able to get the hang of it, but it will take practice and patience.
The craft is VERY durable. Amazingly so. I crash. And crash. And crash. And crash. Fly up the stairway to the second floor of the house, hit a wall, bounce to the other wall, bounce bounce bounce down the stairs: no problem. Numerous times I've crashed so hard it knocked the battery out (and that thing clips in pretty snugly) and the worst that happened was it was hard to find the battery. An extra set (all four) rotors came in the box, but I haven't needed them yet. My biggest worry is that a motor will burn out. The wisdom of the internet seems to be that if you're out of control just kill the throttle and let it crash to the ground so at least you don't have a motor trying to turn against an immovable surface. I imagine that eventually I'll manage to break this thing. When that day comes I'll gladly order a replacement and keep the old one for parts and a second battery.
The battery life is... decent? I don't really know what to compare it to. Sure, I wish it could go for hours. The first few flights I swear it seemed like I only got a few minutes - but time flies when you're having fun! I've timed it with a stopwatch and my flights are about 12-15 minutes (of course, it's not airborne the entire time). Charging takes about an hour. I'm going to posit that this is a GOOD thing. Always running out of battery keeps me coming back for more, and I haven't gotten bored before running out of battery yet. I also think the minimum spacing between flights helps with learning to pilot. For the first few days I really felt like I got better every flight, and feeling that improvement is FUN. The included charger is USB - you need a powered USB outlet to stick it in. I've used both my computer and an iPod charger. When you plug in the battery, the charger glows red. When the red light goes off you're ready to fly.
Due to cold, snow, and wind I've only flown indoors so far, but if you have run of the house the size is fine for playing with inside. I wouldn't recommend it for just flying in a single bedroom however. There is a button on the top right shoulder of the controller that makes the craft do 360 degree flips - I've rarely been able to use that indoors without crashing; it takes a lot of space to execute the maneuver.
At about $35 it's an incredible bargain. I'd pay three times that and still feel it was money well spent.
The manual is very poorly translated and mostly worthless. Fortunately, most of the operation is self explanatory. Here are some helpful tips:
To start flying, leave the controller off. Put in the battery and immediately put the craft on a level surface. With the throttle off (left stick down), turn the controller on. Push the throttle all the way up, then all the way down (the controller will beep twice). You have now bound the controller to the aircraft. The craft will blink rapidly for a second or two as it calibrates the gyroscopes, and then you're ready to go. When you reach the end of the battery the craft will automatically power down and blink in a pattern you will come to associate with disappointment.
There are two control schemes mode 1 and mode 2, which according to the internet are actually known in RC flying world as mode 2 and mode 4, respectively. To switch between them: Controller off. Hold the button beneath the right stick to the right while turning on the controller. The LCD display should indicate which mode you're in.
There are also high (H) and low (L) sensitivity modes. Button on the top left shoulder of the controller toggles between them. I suggest learning in L.

My battery is charged, time to go fly!
