Wifi Camera: Syma X8W also comes equipped with 2MP WIFI HD camera. To realize the aerial photography (shooting and recording) and real-time images transmission (with your smartphone).


wonder if that's good enough to check on those hottie college girls next door while they are sunning.

I had the X8W until I flew too close to the sun. The camera it comes with is awful!

Here's a picture I took with the camera it came with https://i.sli.mg/sm4fw6.jpg

Just a guess, but I think it's 2MP wifi and 5mp to the onboard MicroSD card?

Why do I suspect this one isn't quite like the DGI Pro 4meg deal from a couple of days ago? Is it that it's 10% of the price, or am I just naturally suspicious?

Woah! I have a X5SC I bought on C-mas with a cheapie 2MP HD Camera and it looks better than that picture. Yours is blurred. Should be grainy but still OK. Sure its not defective or contain condensation in lens? Anyway, I would buy this just to practice. The camera is secondary. I bought the FP amazon deal P3 Advanced which is 10 times easier to fly and had 100000 times the better camera/vid. Personally, this is pain to learn on because any wind that kicks in above you (you cant feel it) can throw this thing off and make it crash. If you can fly this well, you can fly the P3 blindfolded. Make sure you start with headless mode as thats the best to start with. Once you are good at it, try the head mode which is harder when you engage a camera with yaw left/right and can disorient easy.

And the p3 is three to four times the price. This is a great place to start without shelling out that kind of money. It is actually 8mp in 1080p mode on this one. Not go pro quality, but then again you won't be flying $600 plus up in the air

It's not, but an extremely affordable alternative. This is a good one to learn on.

I believe I mentioned that in my post. Thats why I have the X5SC to practice on not caring if about camera quality. Also, if you backpack, this is great to pack as it is very light. Youll need to buy a solar charger and at least 3 more batteries.
