I'm currently debating the X5C vs. the Syma x1 with a Mobius camera on it - any help by anyone as far as which would be better for speed/controllability/camera would be great!

(I assume the Mobius HD camera is better than a built in X5C but being built in may have advantages?)

Since not full features of thos X5C are available hard to say something actually ... Just wait & see ... but according to photos, I am afraid the X5C motors will be too weak to carry the mobius (39gr)

Thanks SeByDocky - I don't think the built-in cam is very good. I actually just purchased a Syma X1 AND a Hubsan H107L so I think I'll hold off for now and get some flight time in with these!

Looks like I missed the first round of these at Banggood, but should be getting one when they are restocked. Looks like an interesting quad.

It's bigger than the Galaxy Visitor 2, so it's definitely not a clone of that. But it seems to be going after the same "entry-level Phantom" market. Very curious to check this one out, and see what the camera quality is like.

I'm a little concerned about the geared motors (too much like a WL 959 for my liking) but a HD quad of this size and for so little money?

Looks like Syma could be on to something, can't wait to hear about the video quality and how stable it flies...

Aaron, this quad is FPV? Some sites say yes. Another thing, it has a range of only 30 meters? I think very little.

Bought mine yesterday in Banggood but no spare parts, yet. When will you have? Is to buy a larger battery to increase the flight time? 7 minutes is not enough.

from the pictures and shape of props, this looks like nothing more than a Syma X1 that has been but inside a Phantom looking outer shell. it still has geared motors and 1S battery, how is it going to carry extra weight of body, camera and power the camera. They seem to be asking a lot from this little guy. That Phantom looking body my look cool, but after a few crashes and cost of replacing that body, buyers may wish they had stuck with the less cool looking X1 with it's cheap to replace carbon fiber booms, I will be watching for Ryan's review
