Both teenagers and grown-ups freak out with joy whenever they see RC vehicles such as cars or tanks, so imagine what reaction they’d have if they found such an amazing drone as the X5C RC quadcopter under the Christmas tree.
Saving memories in digital format is one of the best treats of the modern age, and camera-equipped drones such as the X5C RC quadcopter are quickly becoming part of this. Remote-controlled flying toys don’t have a long history, but the features of each of them already are impressive. If you add to the tricks they can perform the fact that some of them pack cameras for aerial photography, you’ll soon realize that drones are perfect toys for all seasons.
Two of the aspects that set the X5C RC quadcopter apart from many other drones are the headless mode/intelligent orientation control (IOC) System, which enables users to fly it without any prior adjustments of the aircraft’s position, and the 6-axis flight control systems (3 gyroscopes and 3 accelerometers) that allows the drone to be still while filming.
The footage filmed with the HD camera is stored on a microSD card (the drone includes a 2GB one in the package), and according to the manufacturer, a 4GB card can store video shot on multiple flights. The included USB SD card reader enables you to transfer the AVI and JPEG files from the drone to a computer and upload them to Instagram or facebook within seconds.
This particular drone comes with a bonus 3.7V 500mAh Li-Po battery that effectively doubles flying time. Each battery takes between 90 and 120 minutes to charge, and can keep the drone in the air for 7 to 9 minutes, depending on the flight regime.
Operating the drone is definitely something anyone can do. The 2.4G transmitter with LCD display features controls for flying up/down, left/right, and forward/backward, not to mention that the drone can also do 360-degree flips at the flick of a button. The LED lights of the drone definitely turn flying it at night into a fantastic show. Imagine what it looks like to fly it on a winter night, when everything around you is white, and only light comes from the quadcopter.
Even though the quadcopter’s blades are protected so that the drone doesn’t get damaged when accidentally bumping into things, the manufacturer considered it’s common sense to include 4 extra blades.
The X5C RC quadcopter drone is available exclusively on Amazon for $119.99, meaning that it’s sold out even on the manufacturer’s website. It benefits of free shipping, and can only be shipped within the 50 states. Buyers can also get an additional 2- or 3-year drops & spills protection for a premium, but that’s definitely worth it, given the peace of mind it can provide. Are you after a Christmas gift for your husband or teenager boy? Then look no further than this drone with powerful motors and HD-filming capabilities!
