Syma X20: Super-affordable ($25) ‘pocket’ drone with altitude hold mode!


The Syma X20 is a new, tiny pocket drone packed with interesting features such as Altitude Hold, One Key Take Off and Landing, and Headless Mode. Although in photos it appears to be featuring a camera, there is no info about it so far, so that’s still to be confirmed.


Syma’s X20 also comes with what seem to be a very “pocket-friendly” transmitter, which is a big plus. There are a lot of quadcopters out there controlled via a smartphone, but nothing beats the easy of use of a proper transmitter with its hardware sticks.

The X20 packs a small 3.7V 180mAh capacity battery that gives the drone about 5 minutes of flight time.
