SYMA W1: Stylish GPS enabled drone

Syma W1 drone

We are happy to introduce you between the firsts, the Syma W1 GPS enabled drone. It is so new, that is not even listed on the manufacturer’s website yet. As my first drone was an X5C, I’m an old fan of Syma drones.

From the first rumors we found, results that the SYMA W1 will feature only smartphone APP control. Frankly, usually I don’t like this approach due to the WiFi range limitations. Taking into consideration its compact size and that it is powered by a 2s/1300mAh battery I’m expecting about 10 minutes flight time.

Unfortunately, as you can see in the image above, the Syma W1 doesn’t seem to have a motorized camera gimbal. Even it is capable to record videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the results will be not so amazing.
