Syma continuously tries to upgrade their existing product by adding new features and a new design.Syma X5HW drone comes with upgraded features and new technologies which looks better than previous.

The design and size of the X5HW is similar to the X5SW which is previous version. Whatever, it uses thinner plastics for the prop guards and new color schemes. As mentioned before, the main addition to the X5HW is the altitude hold feature.

It becomes more popular with several drones in reasonable price. Indeed, this is the key reason you would pick up the X5HW. The altitude hold feature makes flying the drone more easier.

To keep its altitude level an integrated barometric sensor in the drone used to keep track on the air pressure. It allows the X5HW to maintain its flight in desired level.

This quadcoptor is build strong and it can fly indoor and outdoor as well. Syma builds this with the intention that they will be crashing into things around your house and outside. You can replace the parts at cheap cost.

Syma X5HW also comes with different colors, white with green accent and blue with black accents make the drone different from others.


Syma X5HW is the newest and coolest WiFi FPV quadcoptor and does very well as beginners quadcoptor. It has FPV features, though it is wonky. However, the hover mode is very nice if you are learning to fly.


When the barometer is adjusted, the quadcoptor shouldn’t technically hit the ground as the throttle is kept as 50 percent unless you override it to land.

Flight time depends on a few things, but normally you can get 5-7 minutes on full charge. Every full charge will take about 130 minutes. As the X5, the top right button will allow you to do flips and on the controller you can trim of each propeller.

Flight performance

The Syma X5SW was not good for being unable to fly smoothly in windy situations. Nevertheless, we are happy to say that at last Syma got rid of this problem with Syma X5HW.

It comes with stable flight and seems to have an edge over the X5SW. It has both fast and slow speed modes and fly well in the light and moderate wind. Apart from this, the X5HW is less aggressive and slower than predecessor, which is good for beginners and people who is looking for cheap flying camera for taking aerial videos and photos.

You can remove the camera and prop guards to reduce weight On X5HW the automated filps are quirky. The and make the drone little bit faster. X5HW will up a little bit into the sky before performing the filp.

When the quadcoptor flipping outside, even in the slight winds, the X5HW will plunge about 12 feet before it starts to maintain a proper hover.


The X5HW included the similar camera as its predecessor. There is no change and the camera is 0.3MP WiFi FPV resolution. If you want to see the FPV video downlink, you need to install the Syma FPV app on your smartphone and connect to the drone’s WiFi hotspot.

You have to use your smartphone to record the videos and photos taken by the camera.

With FPV transmitter you can control the quadcoptor in the range of 50 to 80 meters. Wifi FPV performance depends on the clear sight and distance.

Being a beginners grade drone, you can’t get the same quality picture from X5HW camera as an actual camera drone. The X5HW camera is good enough for checking your roof and skyscraper.


The Syma X5HW never fly purely on FPV as this will probably  lead to crashes since the information you see on your smartphone can sometimes be delayed between 1 and 3 seconds. You can see the FPV video by using Syma FPV app on your smartphone or tab.

Altitude Hold

Altitude hold is a great additional feature for Syma X5HW. For any drone this altitude hold is useful and effective. To monitor the air pressure and keep your quadcoptor at the same level, the altitude hold uses a barometric sensor.

The air pressure is different at different altitudes and you can control this pressure. So you can adjust the height where you desire to go.

Headless Mode

Headless mode is another great feature of this drone. This headless mode will help you to recognize your quad at any point. To put into headless mode, click down on  the left top button and the lights will on and ensure you that you are in headless mode.

If you want to get out of this mode then click the left top button. This is so easy to control. It will give you a warning before getting your battery low.

Remote controller

Syma X5HW remote is enough easy to use, Just need  AA batteries. If you want to fly this drone indoors, start on easy rate mode and when you fly outdoor use high rate mode.

When you are ready to fly the drone then push throttle up  to the highest point and down again. Easy to control the left, right sticks to center. With the same button you can start and stop the motor or push the lowest point of the throttle to switch off a few seconds.

It has best anti-interference ability, Latest power consumption and it’s reaction speed is 100 times faster than other radio control.


Syma X5HW provide 3.7V 500mAh Li Po battery. It will take almost 130 to fully charged and support you around 5-7 minutes to fly. Syma battery doesn’t allow you to use third party batteries. Though Syma spare or extra batteries are not too expensive.


The transmitter is a very important feature for this drone. This transmitter is same as X5 series drone. It is very easy, effective and responsive to use. You will feel natural and energetic to use it. It works at 2.4GHz frequency.


It will show you the recording video and capturing pictures. People don’t have any complaint about this.
