I got an X8C for one son and this for the other. The biggest and only difference is the camera. For an extra $50, you get an pretty good camera with the G. The camera on the X8C is junk. This one camera takes decent video, really good pics. The only issue is some "jello" waves on sunny days, which is pretty common with drone cameras unless you invest a high quality gimbal anti vibration mount or camera filter.
We have probably logged a combined 100 hours on both drones with no quality issues.
The X8Gs are getting harder to find in the US. I was very happy to find this one sold through Amazon and took about 7 days to arrive. I see that is no longer the case on this item. The alternative is coming from China and taking up to 6 weeks, read the shipping details with each item carefully.
Received my X8G timely as promised.. This is my 3rd Syma as I started with the X5SW and then the X8C and now the X8G. This 8 MP HD camera is far superior then the others with very little jello and nice colored videos. In the headless mode it is a bit sluggish due to the additional weight but for nice videos and photos IMO this one can't be beat for the price. I did purchase a 32GB card as the included 4GB is not enough in my opinion for nice videos and editing. I do think this is for adults in open spaces and not a child's toy as it has lots of power with fast propellers. Buy and enjoy!!
The product is as advertised. It comes from China and I was suppose to get it in about 2 weeks but instead took almost a month. When I got it the box was all beat up but nothing was broken. The instruction manual is in Chinese and unless you can read Chinese, you will have to guess at how to get it operational. I charged the batteries and flew it for a couple of minutes to make sure it would fly. It is extremely noisy but flies steady when hovering. I built a quad that was much more powerful for less money than this cost but for a beginner it is easy to fly. They have several camera options floating around. . . some advertise a 5MP camera while others offer the 8MP (same price). Some reviews gave it a higher rating than I would. It is not the quality that I expected.
