Syma X8HW quadcopter with altitude hold

Just found on SymaToys website that they decided to upgrade the popular X8 quad series with barometric sensor. The Syma X8HW, compared to the previous X8W quadcopter, will features altitude hold function which is useful, especially when you are using your quadcopter for aerial filming.

This X8HW comes with a small FPV WIFI camera but, being very powerful, it can lift almost any GoPro alike camera. Actually this is proven by the Syma X8HG quad, which is the same aircraft equipped by the manufacturer with an action camera.

Few months ago I reviewed its predecessor and I can say that I was impressed by this aircraft. It looked vey nice and well built. My only disappointment was on the poor image quality of the camera, hopefully this new upgraded model comes with a better WiFi camera.

Being powered by a 2000 mAh battery, the Syma X8HW has up to 7 minutes of flight time, which is not impressive at all.
