Syma Introduces X54HC, X54HW X5UW Quadcopters

Syma, the brand known for its stability, announced 2016 series quadcopters. The X54HC and X54HW are one the new models for 2016. In fact Syma X54HC and X54HW has refreshing look and seems no upgrade to 2015 designs. The First look reminds me of MJX X101, but with a traditional syma trademark camera and landing gears.On a Quick note, the H stands for hover Function (aka Altitude hold)

When it comes to specifications and features, not much upgrades. Both X54HC and X54HW featuring an Altitude Hold (Barometer Set Height) along with the headless mode for easy orientation.The X54HW featuring 0.3 Megapixels camera for both photo and videos and capable of  FPV over WIFI through android or ios compatible devices,where as the X54HC is set to have a 2.0 Megapixel resolution for Photos and 1 Megapixel resolution for Video captures and comes with a standard Syma Transmitter.

The controlling distance is 30 meters and operates with a 3.7v 650 mah Battery with a flying time of around 5 to 7 minutes approximately. 2.4 GHZ, 6-axis Gyro are common accompanied features of X54HC and X54HW

The Other 2016 Line Up of Syma includes, X8HC, X8HG, X8HW which belong to the X8 Series family of 2015 and seems to have got a altitude hold upgrades and refreshing colours. X5HC and X5HW resembles almost similar to X5SC-1 and X5SW-1 with a WIFI FPV. On the flip side, X16 Fighter, X51 and X52C seems to be a new entry in 2016 which was revealed in CES this year.

In my view, the above are definitely a feature upgrades to the existing products with a hover/altitude hold. Syma X20 is a smallest Bluetooth quadcopter with 1080p camera, this can be controlled through phone via Bluetooth. Syma X5UW is another addition to 2016 catalogue,  seems completely a refreshing design, with a easy to use battery compartment. Syma also confirmed that, they would launch  a 5.8 GHZ quadcopter in mid of 2016.

Evidently Syma is targeting second half of 2016 for its new launches, to be able to boost its sales for Christmas.  Keep watching this space for more updates.
