Got two new quads in the mail today, one tiny and one big. The WLToys Q343 is particularly interesting since it uses a smartphone for control and it transmits live video on the phone as well. It even has altitude hold! I'm curious to see how well the smartphone control, barometer and camera works in practice in such a tiny little thing.

The Syma X8HG is a 350 sized quad with a 1080p GoPro style camera. The candy apple red strikes a nice contrast with the silver stickers and from my experience with the X5HW, it's little brother, it'll fly just as nicely but with a much better camera.

Both reviews of these will be out soon, right now I'm working out on it.

I just got this on the mail yesterday but only till today did I try to take it through its paces. It's a really smooth and somewhat sporty flyer and the advertised altitude hold works a treat, I even stood below it trying to see if it touches my head but the onboard barometer keeps everything level and precise, dangerous but well worth it . The only things I wished for is some lag-free 5.8ghz FPV instead of the choppy Wifi one on it, and the darn proprietary battery connector has to go too. Tomorrow I'll try to get some videos of it flying and make a full detailed review of it as well.

The X5HW is available here
