    That’s actually quite cool list. I like the Hubsan the most, not that the others are bad, I’m just not a huge fan of Cheerson. Interestingly, you have a picture of Syma X5HC but it’s not listed in the article? I’ll be personally looking at Syma X5HC very soon, so it’ll be interesting for me to see how it compares to those on the list 🙂
