Our Verdict

If you are looking for a really fun Toy Drone for your kids or you like Remote Control (RC) cars yourself and want to take it to the next level then this is just right for you !!

 

The Syma X9 is one of the first Quadcopter/Car hybrids and has great functionality and is easy to use thanks to the throwing flight ability which allows you to launch straight into the air and immediately begin flying.

 

This is useful because while the Car mode works well on hard and smooth surfaces, you can get into difficulties in tougher terrain such as grass or longer pile carpets.

 

Like any RC car it moves forwards, backwards and turns left or right as required, but the real benefit is where you encounter obstacles which would thwart the progress of a normal RC Car.

 

For this clever hybrid it’s no problem as you simply launch into the air and carry on your way!

 

Syma X9 Controller

 

Whilst it doesn’t have headless mode or one key return, the Quadcopter mode is great too and does have good functions such as 6 Axis Gyro for stable flying.

 

Stunts are easily performed with the ability to perform 360° Flips in all directions with the press of a key.

 

When you want to land you can seamlessly touchdown and start driving in car mode as soon as the wheels hit the ground.

 

The controller is basic and has some fake buttons for effect, but it is fairly easy to get used to so shouldn’t take very long for you to get a good degree of control and performing cool stunts.

 

There are also 2 flying modes, beginner and expert, so this helps as well.

 

Flight time is usually about 5-6 minutes and charging time is around 100 minutes via USB so it good that there is an extra battery included.

 

You can also order extra batteries if you want to keep the fun going for longer.

 

Overall this is a great Toy Drone and we think not bad value for what you are getting.

 

It’s quite sturdy and can take some knocks and we think has a great design too.

 

It’s a great gift for kids or beginners to Quadcopters with the added benefit of the Car mode.
