Can fly FPV
Around 7 minute flight times with stock battery
Small and light weight
Very stable flight due to 6 axis stabilization
Can take crashes with next to no damage

Control range affected by the FPV camera Wifi (reduces range)
1/2 second video lag up close and increased latency the further you fly away
Suffers from the “wind bug”


  1. I have the x5sw-1…it’s pretty good for a starter quad, you will learn how to fly for sure if you never have flown a ‘real type” setup quad…

  2. You can counteract the wind bug by pushing the forward trim forwards up to 7 times. Just make sure you trim back before landing. I have no idea how to fix the Wifi issues though.
