- Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) system The Syma X8G has the Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) function. Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using IOC, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction. This lessens the steepness of the learning curve and allows the pilot to enjoy flight while slowly learning each specific orientation of the quadcopter.
- 8MP HD Camera Syma X8G also comes with a 8MP HD camera, support HD 720P , 1080P MOV video quality. Easy to attach and remove from the Quadcopter. The holding case is compatible with GoPro action camera (not included)

- 360 Degree Eversion One key 360 Degree roll, continuous roll for perfect action and wonderful performance
- Blade Protector Highly elastic plastic protective circle, preventing the blades in flight Cause wear, anti-collision anti-fall performance further enhanced

The 8XG features 'headless mode', which is excellent for beginners to become acquainted with controlling their quad's orientation. I've lightly crashed this quad several times throughout the time I've owned it while honing my skills and it has held-up very well. It would be nice if the prop guards that are included were a little more robust, but that's the only 'complaint' I have about build quality. I'm still on the original props, if that says anything.
The 1080P camera is actually pretty decent for an offering in this price range. It will also help you perfect your skills as you learn to keep the camera on your point of interest while maintaining frequent stick inputs. Don't expect buttery smooth video as this is a direct mount camera (no gimbal system.) Regardless, you can take some beautiful pictures and video if you learn how to properly fly it. (example attached)
Battery charge time SUCKS (which is par for the course in this category) so I'd recommend getting an extra battery or two to extend your flight times.
I highly recommend people to take a stepped approach to this hobby. Save yourself A LOT of money and learn how to fly before making a major investment in technology like the excellent DJI Phantom series. Making mistakes while learning on this Quad is much easier to swallow than when you invest $1000+ into a hobby. Parts are widely available on Amazon and are cheap.
I can only say I am enjoying this quad-copter more and more. It is a pretty tough device given how I have whacked it around pretty good. I have discovered that if I Yaw it pretty hard, I can actually hear the props hit the prop guard. I may take those off. I also am having issues with flight leveling and taking off level. I think that I may have stressed out one of the motors and I am not getting the same RPM's out of one of them. I will replace that one and see what happens. I can compensate for this issue and still fly.
This update is more about the camera however. It takes some pretty good pictures and I think the video quality is pretty good. I have uploaded some photo's and one video. The video was converted from the stock .MOV format to mp4. The scene is a winters day in North Georgia and a rare snowy day.
So, I am still pretty stoked with this purchase and I think it is ok as a learning unit. Might as well learn on something close to what you want to ultimately fly.
Safe Flying ya'll.

The lovely wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas and surprisingly, I said a drone. She said to go find one and after researching for a bit, I chose this model. I chose this model over a FPV model and more sophisticated software because I wanted to truly learn how to fly one.
The unit is a nice large size and easy to spot in the air (Even way UP like it got on my novice flights). the motors had no trouble lifting the unit quite high and pretty zippy around my pasture. Had a couple of initial hard landings with no damage at all. A few flip overs, one tree catch(that my pilot certified father in law did) and even whacked a tree trunk (with me at the controls). No damage. Very impressive.
I got 10-12 minutes out of the stock battery and two YouCute extra batteries. Hate the charge time on all of them but I get about 30 minutes flight time total.
After recharging the batteries, round two. Wind had picked up by then and a couple of times lost control. One more tree adventure which I could force out of and the 2nd time a hard whack on the ground which tore up my USB to Unit cable. Bent a propeller also on that landing.
The video from the camera was pretty decent. Good still photo quality.
Practice - controls are a bit touchy if new to this
the less wind, the better. I struggled when not flying into the wind. ended up going up a 100 or so feet and getting it whipped away from me. learned real quick to reduce lift fast and then hit the gas to prevent a hard it.
The x8c and x8g are the same unit, just a different camera. the x8c is about 1/2 the price of the x8g. knowing what I know today, I'd have purchased the x8c to learn. Once I got proficient, then got an aftermarket FPV camera.
Pretty rugged overall
relatively long lasting battery
smooth flying (got some good video)
Great range on the controller. I think I only lost it once legitimately due to distance.
None really but I am new to this.
