Before saying about the product, let me take you some years before. Think a situation of 25 years ago where we could get a picture of land from space through satellites only. Then take a tour 10-15 years ago, where we could get a picture of earth from an area by a powerful camera from a helicopter or any private jet. Technology is growing day by day. Then the age came for an automatic camera, where you can keep the camera at a place giving timer. Now it’s the 21st century. The scientists and engineers are trying their best with the latest technology to provide maximum comfort with the remote control. So here I have discussed a powerful drone.
Before saying about the particular product, let me give you a little information on a drone. Drones are used for video recording or taking snaps sitting in one place. You can control this device with a remote controller and trace its path with a smartphone. You can even take snaps of a location, where we find very difficult to reach. So this device leads our life in capturing the memories to a new extent.
Now let us come to the particular product. Here, I have reviewed Syma X25 Pro Drone. Read the article till the end to know this drone in details.
Design and Looks of Syma X25 Pro
After a long days gap, Syma has unveiled its new Syma X25 Pro drone. It is a quadcopter. This drone is far better than its predecessor Syma X8 Pro. Although Syma has got its first GPS enabled Drone as Syma X8 Pro, it was limited with very few features. This time Syma has come with vibrant features with Syma X25 Pro.
Syma X25 Pro might have similarity in size with other brand’s drones, and the analogy is limited to the size only. But this drone is not foldable one. You should not expect a foldable drone on this price bracket. If you look at the dimension of the drone, then it is 375 mm X 375 mm X 110 mm. This is not very big. The drone comes with the mixture of white and red color. It comes with ABS material which is very lightweight. The material of the drone is polished and is very shiny. Especially the art of white and red color mixing is beautiful and eye-catching.
The materials of the drone are so lightweight that, it can fly on the sky at high speed and maintain stability without any problem in healthy condition. However, you may face little bit problem while the wind is strong. The reason is obvious, and you should not operate the drone under strong wind condition. The drone shines due to glossy finished of the ABS material. This drone uses six-axis gyro sensor which helps it to maintain stability at indoor as well as outdoor flying condition.
If you look at the build quality of the drone, then it is vibrant and suitable for rough and tough use. When you look at the top view of the drone, then it has four high-speed fans at four corners of it. There are heat exhaustion grills on the top of four arms of the drone. Each fan has two blades, and these blades are so good to cut the air very fast to fly the drone. The brand name Syma is well highlighted on the top in deep red color. This logo is very eye-catching and gives a fantastic look to drone.
On the bottom of the drone, you can see two stands at two arms. These stands are very strong and help to place the drone on a surface. Also at the center of the drone, you can have the camera. This camera supports 720P resolution of picture quality. You can have four handles on the side of four arms of the drone. The overall weight of this drone is 170 grams. This lightweight makes it fly without any dropping fear.
Due to its compact size with light weight, the drone is portable. You can take it with you while you travel and capture some best moments.
