Try the K5C RC Quadcopter! It is marketed as being an FPV Quadcopter on Amazon, so let’s examine if it lives as much as that title! Appears a little bit rebranded (rather a lot …

Great job Cody!!
It would have been better if it had a camera
I got the same one on Amazon but it came with a camera and it came with for spare props and the landing gear was already on it and that you had way more stuff with it
That's a syma x5c!
i want to add a flashing nav light on my syma x8 how would i do it
popeye likes it
got cheated on the props lol
looks somewhat like a dji phantom
Your really good at throwing!
You two did a good job with this video. It's nice to see a young couple like yourselves (ok….and the dog) enjoy themselves together at something a fun as flying quads.
I had until yesterday my own K5C that I gave to a neighbor boy, who promptly lost the manual so I didn't remember how to change the expert level settings on the Tx. Just so you know, it's on the yaw trim button on the lower left (saw that on the quadcopter101 video). Also, the headless mode AND the one key return work on the upper left bumper button. Click it once and it's in headless mode. Hold it down for two seconds and it's in "One Key Return" mode. To break the "one key return" mode, just blip the bank stick on the right for a split second and you're back in normal flight.
It may take the standard Syma X5C camera but the quad is so light and underpowered, it probably couldn't lift a Go Pro or Xiaomi or SJ cam without burning out the motors. However, it WILL lift a 808 keychain camera ok.
This is a "clone" of the Syma X5C-1 so it MAY be possible to replace parts for this quad (e.g. props, motors, etc) at Gearbest, Banggood, eBay or Amazon with those parts.
Some things you might want to consider on your videos:
1. In the unboxing, go over briefly the functions on the transmitter. Every Tx is different and often the functions are different.2. Give an objective appraisal at the end of your video's what you like and DON'T like about the quad. If you're fair and objective, it's possible some of the Chinese outlets (Gearbest, Banggood, Lightake) may start sending you quads for review.
Anyway, it was a good video and fun to watch.
Best of luck in the future. Remember, the key to a lasting relationship is the man always having the last word, and which is "Yes dear." 🙂
Dog chassing the quadcopter was so funny.Nice review guys.
Your good at flying
You guys really do some great reviews!! love them all!! I just have a small suggestion. Is it possible of you can go out to some good locations viz., lakeside or near skylines? That backyard is getting kinda' boring..
thanks for the great vids on the budget quads!
Do some Husan products
Everything OK, your videos have been missed!
My dog does the same thing. Wonder what they're thinking?
Hey you guys should take a look at wl toys a979 4wd 1/18 truck it you haven't already it looks pretty cool people say it dose close to 40 mph and it comes with a 2s Lipo and its rtr for like 50 bucks could make a nice budget rc or a first rc I'm really thinking about getting it
I bought this model for my girlfriend as a step up to larger quads because it is so stable and less sporty than some other clones and yet a good flyer., and it has double the range of the Syma X 5. fortunately it was clear that fpvrc was the Chinese brand name from the store it came from and it also stated clearly that it was a non camera version which is what I wanted. It's too bad that many of the vendors there are not as clear as they should be!
Abby, excellent durability testing! Nate, excellent workout for Popeye! Tony, excellent footage!!Looks like a cool, cheap quad for flying around the yard. 🙂
Abby performs the important durability testing.
great job! love it 😀
similar to the Symantec x5c
Quick Question For RC Saylors: Today while flying the Xiro in the yard the copter suddenly seemed to not respond properly to the directional controls making for a scary moment with no place to safely land and unable to move L / R / B or F with any certainty.Was able to land and after a restart it flew fine but I am left wondering what happened.Two things took place before this. A. I calibrated the compass which was successful resulting in a smooth hover. B. During the flight I walked away from my original position to better see the copter, it was then the directional went hay wire.Q: Is it not a good idea to walk around while flying and would this cause problems?Thanks!
Nice!;) Abby did really well on flying this thing!Haha, the idea with teaching popeye to flip quads to the right side is awesome. Do it!!;)Hey, by the way guys, I'm getting into electric rc hehe;) bought a hovercraft, and my first real lipo pack. Already had a lot of fun!;) totally different to nitro rc stuff, but somehow much cooler than I thought!! Videos incoming;) You're gonna love that hovercraft
maybe the fpv camera is an add on?? and theres a phone app????
I asked about a race quad review about a month or 2 ago, but YKS has an RTF race quad for about $200
Not impressed with Amazon store. Very good video Cody, not to bad of a quad. Didn't see the bee drone. Will look it up. A video search line would be nice….
You are very talented Cody.
YKS seems to have an issue with packing the right stuff.I bought their 250 racer and it came with absolutely nothing, other than the quad and the radio.This X5C clone seems to be a good flier. But since I already have 2 X5Cs, I don't think I need another. 🙂
36 dollars is about average for a non camera x5c clone. this one seems fine, but there are better sportier ones out there and cheaper too.
Yea all of you and Cody!!!
The YKS FPV stands for YiKeS its a Four Prop Vehicle. YiKeS being an old Chinese exclamation. Not to hate on. No Phantom but it does fly OK. The thing twanged off of the wires and kept on going. Abby keeps striving for new ways to test durability.Quite creative.
Looks like the Syma X5C-1
that's a awesome looking quad nice video.
Cool video guys, nice shirts?
I was getting tired of all the quad videos, but my cat apparently loves them. She's lying here next to me watching and purring her heart out as she follows it flying around the screen.
