Syma X20, the New Compact Pocket Drone

Syma X20 Pocket is a new mini compact drone in 2017 from the brand Syma Toys. In comparison with the new Syma X8S series, X20 pocket poses similar in looks, but relatively tiny in size and places it-self as an upgrade to Syma X12 and X52C micro quads.

Syma X20 follows the new design pattern, Its evident - Since the launch of Syma X5UC in mid 2016, Syma has made significant changes to the design and improved the features of new drones and their radio transmitters. X20 will be available in two colors - black and white. though the front design looks like a slot for camera, but in reality, X20 is not a camera drone.

Update: Syma X20W will also be available as an WIFI FPV variant with 0.3 megapixels camera.
X21 is another drone in the same category, stay tuned for more information

The new design has more ease of access. (slide-in Plug and Play batteries-no wires needed, Power button at the top, no screw propellers- easy to attach and detach) are few notable changes.
