The Syma X12 Quad
· I fly this on high speed mode and find it to be great indoors, and fully comes alive outdoors.
· The yaw rate is slower than the CX-10, but can be overcome by adding equal or harder aileron (left-right on right stick) in addition to the direction of yaw (left-right on left stick). Practice that and you'll soon have it banking high speed from opposing walls in an 's' pattern. Add a little throttle in the turn to keep it at a consistent height.
· The low voltage indicators come on late, but you can feel a hint of sluggishness near the end of the flight and bring it back home safely. If you think the battery is low and want to fly it back safely from high elevation outdoors, I'd recommend reducing throttle, give it a little yaw in either direction, and some forward elevator to bring it down in a controlled spiral pattern. It won't then have to fight the vortex ring state/downwash if you bring it straight down with a near-empty battery.
· The flips are acceptable with a good battery charge. Not as tight as the CX-10, but it's easier to do multiple flips in succession.
· I find the white LED 'headlight' to be very useful when flying in dusk (my favorite) or at night outdoors. If I feel I'm flying uncomfortably out of range, I'll rotate the quad until I see the headlight and use the forward elevator to bring it home. The other LEDs on top aren't as bright as the CX-10, but I do get a good sense of tail lights/headlight and have no issues when flying.
· The propellers are beefy and can definitely take hits and crashes. I haven't had to bend them straight once, and that makes for more time flying, less time waiting for replacement parts to cross the Pacific.
· The size works well, even for those of us with large hands.
· It is very easy to trim in flight with the d-pad near the sticks. It is more intuitive than the CX-10 controller. Trimming is barely needed, as the quad calibrates itself when you bind to the controller.
· The low speed/high speed and flip buttons are easily accessible with the index fingers in mid-flight. No need for the awkward inward press of the stick.
· The controller has a good solid build quality, and a nice rubber feel on the sticks for precision flying.
· The audible beep when changing modes is a bit loud for my tastes. Maybe a future DIY modification is in order.
The Charging Cable
· I've added a black arrow to the top of the small connector with a Sharpie to better orient the charging cable for faster connections.
· The light on the USB end glows when it is done charging, which is the reverse of my other quads.
All in all, this is a great flyer with stability for indoor flight and speed for outdoor flight. I've bought some for friends, and will be picking up another to minimize the charging downtime. A good trainer for the eventual bigger quad w/GoPro and gimbal.
They look really cool and I like the Larger TX Syma includes compared to the tiny TX
that included with the Proto X and a most other Nano Quads currently on the market.
The Front white Led is very bright and the only thing I can see when it's flying toward me in a darkened room. The Top Led's can't be seen when flying unless you drop the Quad down below eye level. If you don't have the front white Led pointed at you then you can see the color led's reflected off the bottom of the prop tips.
I estimate I'm getting 5-6 min's of flight time per charge but I did not time it.
The X12 has a really slower Yaw rate than my Proto X & even slower than the already slow WLtoys V272. I was surprised however because the slow yaw rate didn't bother me too much and I was able to fly it around quickly in my large living room without any trouble.
After approx 5 min's plus of fast flight it sunk to the ground and I suspected the battery was depleted. I Turned it back on and as I was holding it in my hand and the led's on top started flashing to indicate low voltage cutoff had been reached and it was time to charge the battery.
The LVC is not much use because by the time it triggered my X12 had already lost the power it needed to stay in the air.
I own the Proto X and V272 in the Nano quad size and I like the X12 better than the V272 but the Proto X is still the better flyer with my Hubsan X4L TX. I give the X12 credit for having a better RTF package however the LIPO Battery inside the Quad won't last forever and it's much easier to replace the battery in the Proto X & V272. the Battery in the X12 is soldered direct to the board and replacement would not be easy for the novice.
I found the front white led too bright and overwhelming, almost blinding when its pointed at you in a dark room. I wish you could turn it off with the TX. I put a piece of red tape over it and then could better see the red and green leds reflection off the props for flying in a dark room.
I really like the X12 and feel it is better than the V272 and could be a real contender to the Proto X the Original Nano Quad that started it all.
The slow Yaw rate of the X12 is a con but I can adjust my flying style so it's not a problem for me.
For a pilot use to fast yaw rates it may take some time to adjust to the slower yaw.
When I went from the Proto X to the slower Yaw rate of the Wltoys V272 I had to learn to change my flying style to compensate.
The Props on the X12 are larger than those on the Proto X and V272
The Props seem really tough and even after a few bumps against the ceiling and hits on the wall they are in good shape.
without a prop guard props will likely take a beating over time and need replacement. A spare set of Props is included with the X12 and I would expect Syma will make replacement Props as well as other spare parts like batteries and motors available soon.
Took both my X12's outside for some flying in breezy conditions to see how they perform.
In Low rates it was struggling but in High rates the X12 owned the Air and really came alive. It's really a great outdoor flyer.
I Took it way high up and then did a series of three flips to bring it back down.
I had put a tiny piece of red tape over the front white Led to keep it from blinding my when flying indoors in the dark. Outside It was not bright enough and I lost orientation and had to cut the throttle before I lost visual location of it
Retrieved the X12 and Found it in perfect condition. It's a tough Quad and the props are also tough. I promptly removed the red tape from the white led. That bright white led is just what I needed to tell Orientation outside. The range of the stock TX is really good and I was really impressed with the X12 performance outside even in breezy conditions.
I would caution however that the small size does make it easy to lose should it get away from you. It's fast and with the breeze pushing it can move out of visual range quickly. The TX defaults to Low rate mode on power up so you want to remember to switch it to High rate right away when flying outside. Low rate works good indoors and flips and hand toss recovery worked well in low and High rate.
One of my X12's did experience some drift issues and I'm not sure if it has a weak motor or problem battery at this point.
I'm a Experienced flyer and own several quads and can still fly this X12 even with the drift issue.
The other X12 I have fly's perfect in everyway and I confident that it better represents the Syma X12. Amazon Customer service is excellent and I did confirm that the one not performing 100% could be returned to Amazon for a refund if needed.
Improvements I wish Syma would consider is controlling the Front White Led with a switch on the TX so It could be turned off indoors.
Position the 4 color Top Led's so that they could better be seen when flying.
After owning these for a couple of weeks they both have drift problems that make them hard to fly in tight places indoors.
outdoors drift is not so much a issue where you have a lot of space to maneuver the quad.
Holy stone M62R - Too big for inside, too small for outside. Difficult to fly. Camera not very good.
Holy Stone® RC Quadcopter with 2MP Camera M68R(Plus) - Too big for inside, great size for outside. Easy to fly. Has headless mode but it would occasionally go out of headless mode when batteries got low and go out of control so I quit using headless mode. I got the white one and painted the back half neon orange making it easy to see. Keep it oriented in the right direction and there is no need for headless mode. Has lights that make orientation easy to see at night. I've had it to about 200 feet high. Definitely recommend this one.
Syma x12 - Small and easy to fly, good for indoors and out. Recommend this one. I took mine to about 100 feet up and it drifted away in the wind and got lost. I will probably buy another.
Cheerson CX-10 - Smaller than the syma and harder to fly. It bounces around a lot so difficult indoors. Too small for outside. Was supposed to come with spare blades but it didn't. Broke a blade and can't fly it until I buy more.
