Syma X8HG is a fairly recent drone because it was announced in February and has been on the market just a few weeks. For those who know the world of quadricotteri, Syma X8HG is the upgraded model of the Syma X8G, of which we dealt with in the past and with which it shares much of its technical specifications. On board, in fact, we find an HD camera, FPV (First Person View) on your smartphone, Flip and Headless mode, and one of the most appreciated features, Altitude Hold mode.
Unlike the previous version, which cost around 150 Euros, Syma X8HG has a price much more affordable: TOMTOP proposes to 89.99 euro with the ability to still save money by using the coupon code “LCXRC” during the purchase. Basically, the only you pay 85.49 € with a nice savings considering that some local online shops have added it to a list to more than double the price.
In the package in addition to the Syma X8HG, you will find a EU power supply (despite the drone arrivals from Chinese stores), the camera, transmitter, 4 spare propellers, landing gears 2, 2000 mAh battery, screwdriver, USB cable, card reader memory, clip the smartphone and a manual.
But let the technical specifications: Syma X8HG has the same 8-megapixel camera integrated into the Syma X8G 360 ° rotatable, 2.4GHz transmitter for a stronger signal and less interference, and 6-axis gyroscope for a more stable flight even counter- wind. The “WiFi Real Time Transmission” allows you to transfer images to your smartphone in flight, to control them in real time, while the “Barometer September height” is new to the drones in this category, because it allows you to lay down on hovering quadricottero with a few moves on the joystick, monitoring the air pressure with a barometer. Unlike the previous model, Syma X8HG does not seem to enjoy the RTH function (Return-to-Home).
