The AKASO X5C is light weight and durable. The propellers are guarded by plastic frame so that it's protected during collision. It includes a removable hull and blade guards so it's both suitable for flying indoors and outdoors. The AKASO X5C offers high speed flight. Pushing the speed control button, switches the quad to high performance mode. When it's stable, you can get it doing more tricks: up/downward, left/rightward, 360 degree rotate, etc. Steps: Step 1. Insert the battery into the quad-copter and plug it in the receptacle. (Make sure battery is fully charged) Step 2. On the Remote Control make sure the left throttle stick is all down, then insert new batteries and turn on the remote. Step 3. Wait for few seconds to see if both device will sync. You will hear three beep sound when devices are paired. (Proceed to Step 4 if device is not synced.) Step 4. On the left throttle stick, push it all the way up and down quickly.

I have had a number of RC toys. Helicopters, kit Planes, boats, cars, etc. I have never had a quad copter though. I have seen these around and they look so cool. It almost doesn't seem like they should work. I was impressed at what was included. Of course you have the copter and a controller (there is some simple assembly required) but also included is a memory card for the camera, a USB card reader to view your videos with a usb card, replacement blades, and even a tiny screwdriver to help with assembly. I was skeptical of the video quality but it really is pretty amazing and you can get some super cool shots. This is stable in the air and flies well but there is definitely a learning curve. I would suggest a wide open space. With a light flying craft there is also a decree of fragility. Don't get me wrong, it is well constructed, but a blow or twist the wrong way would probably not be good. The included charger charges the Lithium Ion battery in about an hour and provides 10-15 minutes of flying time. While it can fly when the air is moving it can be challenging and in some cases it struggled to fly against an oncoming wind. That is pretty much common sense.
My 8yo son was dying to try this and while I think some would be tempted to get this as a kids toy I would suggest against that. This is a daddy toy. Honestly it has delicate and potentially fragile parts and you need someone old enough to recognize that and respect that.
There are lights on the underside to let you know which portion is the front and rear of the craft even in the dark. The controller pairs easily, has controls for the camera to use video or photos. There is also digital trim controls on the controller to fine tune the craft if it is drifting in the wrong direction. There is a flip button that makes the ship to really cool tricks effortlessly. Also an easy button and controls to slow the responsiveness of the quadcopter to make flying it more stable and easy.
I have played with this over the weekend and am just starting to get the hang of it. There is a learning curve. THat being said the challenge is a blast. This is a great entry level quad copter that is sure to please. Full disclosure, this was provided to me by the seller to review. If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will gladly reply. Thanks!
Update 9/16: I have played with this guy nearly every day since I got it. I have had a couple of close calls fishing it out of trees and had to get it off of my roof but it is still going strong. A couple of pointers; The record function is awesome but for the file to save you have to stop recording as well. This took me a while to figure out. Also I have periodic issues syncing the controller to the quadcopter. The best indicator I have found that it is ready for pairing is the led lights underneath. When they stop quick flashing and turn steady you can power up the controller to sync the two.
Update: 10/5: Boy the review trolls are out in force. Not sure why I have 30 not helpful votes. Either way, this is still working out well for me. I have had it stuck in a tree and managed to knock it down without damage. I have had some issues with pairing the controller with the drone but typically get it without a problem. The loop button is pretty neat and works well. You press it and wait (maybe the drone stabilizes first) it then does a flip although the flip doesn't happen immediately. With the camera I think the quality is impressive for what it is. I did realize that for the video files to save you need to stop recording prior to ejecting the SD card. Also my sd card reader that was included died but that wasn't a big deal for me. I wound up getting more batteries and a quad charger for this and the extra batteries and flying time is nice. I did decrease my rating to 4 stars because the card reader died and also because of the periodic pairing issue. Aside from those gripes this really is a cool little quad copter that is tons of fun.
10/21/15 Update: I finally figured out the loop function. You have to press the button and then press on the directional stick. The direction you press is the direction the quad copter flips. You can do one after another. I have also let go of control and allowed my son and some of his friends to play. They did ok but we were in an open soccer field and I had to stay nearby to cut the throttle if they lost control. The quadcopter is super stable and my son enjoys just tossing it in the air to launch (must be upright) then hitting the throttle and watching it catch itself. I have had it pretty far away and am impressed with the range.
Out of the box, you'll have to install the propeller guards and the landing gear, but it's super quick. This thing comes with everything you need to get going right in the box. I'd suggest some additional batteries and maybe another/larger SD card, but it's locked and loaded from the get go. Even had a fully charged battery loaded in the copter. Yeah, the battery door/camera thing is a little tricky, but just pay attention people.
I haven't had a chance to really open her up in the wild yet, but in my preliminary flights, it handles really well. Be prepared to follow the instructions and to use the "Trim" settings to even things out some before you really fly. But, after that, it's on and it's fun. I was flying (for my first time on any device) within 10 minutes of assembly.
The build is really nothing to complain about. I don't know where else you could find something with this good a build for this money. Its light and it's plastic...as to be expected. The camera works quite well in my opinion and I wish I could control panning and tilting, but I have enough on my hands just flying to begin with.
I'm going to get after it quite a bit this coming weekend and I'll be amending this review with some images/video of it and shot from it. Stay tuned!
Okay, so I had some time (and decent weather) to fly this puppy on Saturday. It's nice! Of course, there was still wind blowing North at a pretty good click, but I have to say it flew quite well.
One big big note... This camera is NOT HD!!! I'm letting everyone know that loud and clear as it IS advertised as such. I didn't really expect it to be for this price though. So, I took a star off the review for that false advertising. The camera kinda just sucks too. I will probably use it plenty more, but it's just low low low grade folks.
I've attached a video I made of the small amounts of footage that were discernible.
Other than that, I cannot wait to fly it some more again soon. C'mon Spring!
- This is a great beginners quadcopter. It is easy to learn to fly and at a great price
- Mine has not flown away. Just be careful flying it in wind.. it does not have GPS signaling like more expensive quadcopters
- Comes with tons of extra props and landing gears.
- Includes a camera that isn't even worth taking pictures on. Not great quality. I did not base my review off of this
- Includes one battery that lasts anywhere from 7 minutes depending on the situation
The problem I have is that the battery compartment is very poorly designed. It is super hard to take batteries in and out and you really need pliers to do it effectively. For this reason, I removed a star.
I received this product in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
