syma x5c quadcopter is one of the most common drones for beginners. the quadcopter is very cheap and simple to fly, it also can handle a 2mp camera.
the original quadcopter has 2 problems:
1. the maximum flight time is only 5:40 minutes
2. the control range is only 50-60 meters, not enough for outdoor flight.
this guide will show you how you can increase the flight time to more than 11 minutes and the control range to more than 200 meters.
Step 1: Add More Flight Time
another solution is to change the original 600mah battery to 750mah battery, the 750mah battery will increase the flight time to 7 minutes.
Step 2: Add More Control Range
the original radio control range of the quadcopter is only 50 meters.
you can change the antenna of the original transmitter and extend the range to 100 meters.
you can also just use another remote transmitter to extend the range to 250 meters. the x8c quadcopter remote will do it!
in this video you can see the 5xc quadcopter controlled by the x8c remote and fly to more than 200 meters.
you can get the remote from here for just 14$
