Syma X5C Quadcopter (UK stocked and dispatched) £49.99 @ hawkins bazaar

Found 3rd Feb 2016
Cheapest I could find this on the high street for a definite latest version X5C (Explorers 2) - 2MP camera, Headless mode, old style landing skids etc.

Saw loads of ads on eBay/Amazon etc. which turned out to be either the X5C-1 or SW but could pick this up in the High Street so returning it if it breaks shouldn't be an issue and I didn't have to wait 6 weeks for delivery from China either.

Inspect roof tiles, keep an eye on the kids or go for a high flying tour of the neighbourhood with this cool drone from Syma. Equipped with a HD camera on the underside, this quadcopter can hover high above the garden and record video quite literally on-the-fly. Not only that, but this gyro-stabilised flying machine can also take high quality photos from the air, perfect for large group shots (and much more fun than sending the photographer up a ladder). The drone itself is super simple to fly, thanks to the 6-axis flight control systems and on board stabilisers. Feel like pulling off a flashy mid-air manoeuvre? Simply hit a button and it'll perform a full flip in the air.

7 Minutes flight time. Rubbish.

But the batteries are cheap as chips so just buy more and they don't take too long to charge. This is a very good quadcopter but can be bought for a lot less than the price above so not that good a deal.

Yes it can but then you'd wait 6 weeks and have the pain of sending it back when one of the motors burns out (as happened to my last one).

This is only worth considering if you want a genuine UK stocked Explorers 2 version, which is what I wanted so was prepared to pay a bit more rather than pay 30quid wait ages and then find they'd sent the old version with the rubbish camera

You can get them cheaper from China but you can get big import bills and if it goes wrong you are stuffed. This model is also crap at flying even in light wind. If you buy this you will be disappointed and wish you bought the wifi model for only a few quid more.

where please?
Probably Banggood. You'll wait a month for it to come from China and good luck if it's faulty.

So post some proof of a high street Retailer selling it for less.

Thought I'd already made clear, this is only a good deal if you want the Explorers 2 version of the Syma X5C and want UK dispatch/high street collection
I have one of the older ones. Many 3.7v 1s lipos will fit, I get about 10 minutes fully loaded out of a 750Mah Turnigy nanotech.

The stock camera is pants, add an 808 16/18 keychain cam for best results. Take everything off and a great fun little flyer. I learned to fly properly with this model. Still good to mess around with or take quick aerial video where its not possible to use my f450.
