Syma X6 Supership
Not very good so not worth spending much time on , the Syma X6 Supership looks like it would command a price point significantly higher than the $70 or so that it asks – but, it’s not worth it.
Not only does that make this particular quadcopter a bad deal, but it also gives you the opportunity to waste yet more money on rubbish – if you can fly this then you can probably fly anything so it may be worth getting just to practice on before you decide to spend significantly more later down the line on a “beefier” option.
Built on the back of a reliable and consistently performing quadcopter design, this entry-level option takes advantage of the technology, intelligent stabilizers, and a very modular design that helps it avoid self-destruction should it land unintentionally.
The odds are very, very good that you’ll be disappointed with the Syma X6 Supership!
As we just touched upon, the Syma X6 Supership takes advantage of a modular design to help make it a lot easier to transport to your “launchpad” – but also helps to contain damage to one specific area of the quadcopter should it come into contact during a midair collision or land unintentionally.
Believe it or not, those two things are going to happen A LOT when you dive headfirst into the world of quadcopters. You want to be 100% sure that your new drone can not only take the beating and still operate just as effectively as it did on day one, but that it’s going to be easy to repair or replace should the damage be more widespread or more significant than anticipated.
The Syma X6 Supership does not hold up well against other drones!
This particular quadcopter has also been designed as a “stunt and tumbling” model, giving you the chance to do a lot more than just hover in a permitted safe space. Thanks to its design, it’s going to be able to do a few aerial maneuvers that other quadcopters can’t do.
A six axis gyroscope stabilizer also helps as far as stability in the air is concerned, giving you the chance to learn how to command and control your new drone on the fly. The gyroscope will have a go at keeping your quadcopter balanced and stable in the air, but I would not bank on it.
The lithium-ion battery system (rechargeable battery system, at that) is going to give you about 10 minutes of flying time on a full charge, similar to the flying time than you’ll get out of most other options. Sure, it’s going to take about an hour to charge up that battery from completely empty, so you may need spare batteries.
You’ll have a bit of “3-D Full Flight Control” when you pilot the Syma X6 Supership as well, which means you’ll be able to go up, down, left, right, forward, backward, and pretty much anywhere else you’d like just by manipulating the controls running off of the 2.4 GHz wireless transmission technology.
One of the downsides to moving forward with this particular drone is that it takes about an hour to charge from a completely dead battery. Buy a second battery pack (or even three or four, they aren’t that expensive) and you can stay up in the air longer – coming down only to “refuel”.
If you want to be sure to get your hands on one of the best drones money can buy today then unfortunately the Syma X6 Supership is not the one to invest in.
It may well disappoint you.
