Syma X5, X5C and X5C-1 spare parts
Unavoidable, after several crash lands, you will need some spare parts to repair your Syma quadcopter.
After my last crash land I recovered my Syma X5c only after few minutes. Unfortunately, because the motors didn’t stopped after hitting the ground, the propellers have hooked in 20cm high grass.
As I am a beginner flyer, of course I have had some crash lands before, but until now nothing happened to my quadcopter, I thought it was indestructible :).
After I recovered the quadcopter and I removed all the grass around the propellers and motors shafts I tried to power on my Syma X5. The result was disappointing. two of the motors didn’t start anymore.
Mechanically nothing happens to the aircraft, I had to check electrically every part of the Syma X5C separately.
At first sight, the quadcopter ‘s motherboard or the two anti-clockwise motors died (or both if I am an unlucky man).
I had two options, to order a new Syma X5 (BNF – without battery, camera and transmitter) and keep the old one as “donor” or order spare parts and trying to fix my X5C.
Finally I decided to order two anti-clockwise motors. Be careful, on some stores you have to order separately the motor gears.
After I’ll received the spare parts I will keep you updated with the fixing process through a new blog post.
