Syma X8W WIFI FPV Quadcopter For Aerial Filming

Syma recently launched X8W FPV (First Person View) quadcopter. Evidently syma X8 series quadcopters are quite big and probably the biggest quadcopters from the Brand Syma, resembling the DJI Phantom drones. The Syma X8W features similar to the initial X8C quadcopter but comes with a WIFI Camera for FPV transmission through the Android or Iphone, in fact, you need to use the SYMA FPV app to record and see the live footage of your Arial filming.



The Bigger Syma X8W has strong wind resistance power and stability when compared to syma x5 series quads and also features in 6-axis gyro system along the four channel digital proportional Remote Control System with 2.4GHZ anti-interference technology and headless mode feature. (Learn more about the orientation of the quadcopter in my earlier post)X8W also comes equipped with 2.0 WIFI HD camera, but i recommend upgrading to either Xiaomi Yi camera or Amkov 5000s if you would like to have a  near professional aerial filming and photography.

  4. Any iPhone or Android when you download Syma FPV either from Apps or Syma web-site and install it, if it says not compatible with your OS version that means you have an old iPhone etc ..., other than that the Wifi cam/FPV works so well, you can open your Android tablet to view big video captured live on screen, in other words any standbyders have their iPhone or android with FPV installed can view your drone camera live. Have fun

  5. Hi there. Does the x8w camera records videos and photos or only transmit via wi fi to be recorded on another device (phone, tablet etc)? If it does, is the card included with the drone kit or it has to be purchased separately? What card does it uses? I can't find any information about the card on Syma web site.
    Thanks

    1. Al Mich, the X8W recording will happen through WIFI, there is no SD card included as part of this product, as it features to record the video on smart device (Iphone or Tablet)
      Its worth to wait for Syma X8G, which seems to be available soon

    2. No It does not come with Wifi, infact the X8W Wifi lags as it uses the Phone wifi range to transmit the real time image and video through APP

  7. Hi friend! Which quad do you reccomend for me? I just have $ 170,00 and I would like to buy a quad with a 1080p cam and fpv system. Does the X8G has fpv? Can I see the images in an phone/tablet? I have a Xiaomi YI camera I could use to fpv too. Please help me decide what would be the smart choice for me. Do you think MJX X101 plus FPV kit for using with my YI could be a good idea? Thank you very much!!!

  9. Ans, unfortunately I can not buy from banggood, because they offer only EMS Shipping, what in my country give me 100% the possibility of high custom taxes, almost 80% of the value of the product. Anyway, I appreciate your help.

  12. Hi. I have Syma X8C (I got it as a gift) and I was wondering if it could do FPV if I put X8W camera on it or does it require other components. I'd like to be able to use FPV without buying a whole new quad. If there are other alternatives, I'd be happy to know.

  13. Hi is the FPV using the same 2.4ghz frequency to the phone? and it does not interfere with the 2.4ghz transmitter since there is an anti-interference technology? most smartphones have 2.4ghz antenna just wondering. .
