Features of the Syma X5C Explorer
The Syma X5C Explorer is built with a six axis gyro, a direction stabilizer, to help keep the quadcopter stable, and not wobbly in the air. It has a 3D lock to keep from needing constant adjustment. This allows you to have more scheduled flight time in air, and less down time on the ground.

During flights or landings, the four blades on a quadcopter can suffer damage, as they hit trees, the ground, or other objects. The Syma X5C Explorer comes with four blade guards, to keep your blades safe. These blade guards are white, and made from a highly elastic protective material, that is shaped in a circle.
If the quadcopter hits something, it’ll just bounce right off again. Your worries are decreased that you’ll damage your drone. You’ll also not have to worry so much about grass or fibers getting wrapped around the blades, which can cause a lot of frustrating down time in other drones, as these fibers need to be removed.
The pure white color of your Syma X5C Explorer should enable you to spot it easily in the air from a distance, but it is also equipped with two green lights, and two yellow lights on its underside. These colorful running lights will enable you to keep an eye on your drone, while it’s flying through the air.
It’s also perfect for flying at night, even when it’s pitch black outside. You’ll be better able to spot your drone through the air. The LED running lights make drone flying at night an option, and the fun won’t have to stop, just because it got dark out.

Many quadcopters don’t come equipped with a camera, but the Syma X5C Explorer has an HD—High Definition—video camera onboard. This camera is safely tucked under the body of the Syma. It’s protected by the body of the quadcopter, and the two supportive structures on either side. You’ll have a ton of fun taking pictures and video of the great scenery, while your Syma soars through the air.
