The Syma X8C already seems like quite a popular quadcopter drone. The fact that it can mount action cameras without much of a hassle, combined with the not-so-high cost is probably what makes for the USP of the quadcopter drone. Meanwhile, Syma also gave the WiFi FPV version of the quadcopter — the Syma X8W — a ninja launch.
The Syma X8W is essentially an X8C but with the addition of WiFi FPV. It comes with a 2 mega-pixel camera, while all the X8C lists is an ‘HD camera’. Nonetheless, at just around $10 over the usual price of the X8C, the WiFi FPV enabled X8W looks like a decent buy if you’re into WiFi FPV.
If you aren’t aware, WiFi FPV allows you to stream video from the quadcopter drone’s camera right on to your phone’s screen. To achieve this, it uses the 2.4GHz WiFi technology, and thus, installation of an additional application is usually. The Syma X8W comes with a 2000mAh LiPo battery, which should provide 10-12 minutes of flight time to the X8W.
The controller of the X8W comes with adjustable mounts that allow you to mount your smartphone on to it. The Syma X8W can be purchased from GearBest.com for $118.99 shipped.
