The gears (in combo with its tapered props) allow for quick reaction of the motors to gyro inputs, enhancing stability compared to similar sized micro quadcopters. It also improves efficiency of the motors, reducing current draw during quick transitory events (as compared to direct drive props). With the stock 200mah battery, I'm getting close to 7 minutes of flight time with the prop guards installed! Overall, I like this little quad a lot ! Did a comparison review of it to the X12:

By the way, both the X11 and X12 also work fine with my Syma X5C-1 (upgraded model) controller.

It's a fun little quad for sure! It handles a little wind better than the smaller X12. It's a lot of fun outside, though it can be flown indoors too.

As a newcomer to the quad world, it seems to me gear-driven props increase weight, mechanical complexity and create additional points of failure. What are the benefits of gear driven props?

That is correct. Just a gear on the motor shaft and a gear on the prop.

That is true. The benefit being that it's more efficient (smaller motors and battery (200mAh), but still gets 7min flights without the guard on), and it's quieter.

Very interesting quad for FPV. Do you mind sharing the size of motor, diameter?

Geared motors allow for bigger props, slower flying. Easier to control than the direct drive micros. Yes if you crash or wind up mowing the grass with your quad, the gears could potentially become an additional problem over direct drive.

Strange thing is the manual mentions a video and photo function, and there is a camera module part however I don't see a camera in my Syma x11 out of the box.

Syma x12 or Syma x11?

I saw this note on gearbest's product page:

Note:
No camera for this quadcopter, so you can not use it to take pictures and any video recordings.
Perhaps there's going to be another version in the future with a camera option?

Anyone have a good battery upgrade recommendation? Seeing people put 500 mAh batteries in these, but I was wondering if the extra batteries I have inbound for a Hubsan X4 might be a decent upgrade. Little more gain in flight time without too much extra weight.
