Thanks to Gear Best for sending in a Syma X5C Remote Quadcopter for us to take apart and review. Use the coupon code below to get a special Hacked Gadgets price for this unit. This is the first quadcopter I have looked at so I am no expert. Unfortunately the weather conditions in Winnipeg are not the best for doing any outdoor flying so the most we could do is a basic buzz around the livingroom. This thing can get some great altitude and seems to take some good video when in daylight. The few pictures I took were in the livingroom in a low light conditions.

The first video goes over what is in the box and a short indoor flight. The second video shows us what makes the magic happen. If you want to see what it can do outdoors (can’t wait till summer) have a look at the video that Quadcopter 101 made here.
