[Video] Unboxing the Syma X11 ‘Hornet’ quad-copter drone


Syma X11 (2)Up until 2014, the Hubsan X4 was regarded as one of the best, if not the best, beginners quad-copter drone. However, last year saw a lot of consumer drones being launched, one among which happens to be the Syma X11 Hornet.

The quad-copter drone costs under $30 on most web-stores and comes with geared props, enabling a much greater flight time than other quad-copter drones of its class. Gearbest sent one over for me to review, and I only got the parcel today after a little detour that the parcel took at the customs office.

Nonetheless, I went ahead and tested the X11 Hornet a little (indoors), and so far, the results are extremely positive. If you’re coming from something like the Cheerson CX-10 and the likes, it might take time to get used to the gear driven props which give the Syma X11 rather unique flight characteristics.

The drone itself comes in a nice and big box, with a proper English language manual contained. Syma is among the better known companies from China, so that isn’t really a surprise. Apart from the English language user’s manual and the drone itself, the packaging includes: a 200mAh 3.7V battery, 4 additional prop guards and a USB charging cable apart from the yesteryear videogame-style controller.

Nonetheless, I’ll be testing the Syma X11 Hornet indoors and outdoors through the coming week, and a full review of the same will be posted shortly after.
