Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Battery time (-7 min) is a limitation, but hard to expect much more because of weight issues."
_
"Decent one even though the battery compartment is very flimsy."
_
"I thought it might be a power problem but I have 4 batteries counting the one that came with it."
_
"Had an old 3 cell 2200mah Lipo that was damaged, made it into 2 1 cell 2200mah batterys for the syma."
_
"Only negative I can see is that the battery life is pretty short."
_
"In that two months the battery connector in the craft itself became faulty, and would only work intermittently after only using the product for a few weeks."
_
"I have 5 batteries that gives me a good hour of flying and gives you a real chance to practice."
_
"Be sure to buy a couple extra batteries because they drain fast, so it's good to have more on hand to swap out and have more fly time."
_
"Decent one even though the battery compartment is very flimsy."
_
"For me battery life has been decent...I can play for at least 20 mins without a recharge or using the second battery I purchased (though that is not 20mins of constant flight)."
_
"Battery life is good."

_
"My camera didn't work very well, file corruption issues, BUT I bought this for the flying, not the pictures."
_
"The camera is pretty terrible though."
_
"Unfortunately, the camera didn't take any videos before the crash and hasn't worked since."
_

Control

Control:
"The second was so difficult to control that it broke within an hour."
_
"Got this as a gift for my brother; he loved playing with it and it flew well, though the controls seemed to not respond well, and or be a little too sensitive."
_
"Control is terrible."
_
"Had to return the 1st one since I was unable to control it at all."
_
"Use that modification to give you better control, not greater altitude, and it will help you hang onto your X5C."
_
"My many crashes make it sound like it's hard to control but the truth is I just keep trying to do tougher and tougher maneuvers with it."
_
"A great beginner Quad - flight is stable and easy to control."
_
"He said the controls are the easiest of any remote control toy he has used before."
_
"It's also pretty tricky learning to adjust to the directional controls when the wind blows it over your head and you have to reverse the normal directional input."
_
"Durable, fast, and nice controls."

Crash

Crash:
"One day I took it up pretty high, just enough for the controller to be unresponsive, and it drifted and crash landed juuuuust outside of a swimming pool."
_
"Unfortunately, the camera didn't take any videos before the crash and hasn't worked since."
_
"Not a good toy for little kids who just like to crash things..."
_
"I've only flown so far in the house and backyard and this thing is indestructible; I can't count the number of times I've crashed and thought for sure a blade would be broken."
_
"The copter seems flimsy, but has survived lots of crashes."
_
"My many crashes make it sound like it's hard to control but the truth is I just keep trying to do tougher and tougher maneuvers with it."
_
"So far I've only flew it around in my living room trying to get the hang of it --- crashed it twice --- I'm sure it will crash less when out in the great outdoors taking it for a spin."
_
"Good news - the hardware can take a beating, as no visible damage after the crash, and it works just fine."
_
"Out of the many crashes and smashes, it hasn't broken yet."
_
"It takes quite a beating, as I spent a good chunk of the past couple days crashing it into my house and some trees."

_
"I can bump it up against windows for total freak-out enjoyment.2) fly it in a very open area, especially at first."

_
"I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into flying."
_
"The quad works great and flies super smooth and is easier to fly than any other cheap quad I have (proto-x and hubsan x-4) I was expecting the build quality to be a little bit higher but I should have known better with a cheap drone from china but for the price I am very happy."

Wind

Wind:

_
"Best advise is to fly it in very low wind conditions."
_
