syma x5c11 advanced quadcopter Missing: Syma X5C-1 Drone

OK, so its got nothing to do with Jamaica, Jamaica Villas, Jamaica vacations, weddings, honeymoons or anything whatsoever about Jamaica, its about a Syma X5C-1 Drone.

So, what’s the big deal? I’ll tell you what the big deal is; I ordered this Syma X5C-1 drone with Camera from a company in China, it cost me about 80 USD and it took 3 weeks to arrive (Free delivery) and I got all excited.

I took all the packaging out, spare parts, extra batteries and then assembled the blade protectors etc etc and went outside to try it out. I went into the middle of three adjoining fields that had been cut down during the harvest so there was nothing for the drone to get lost in.

The nearest tree was about 400 yards away and it was a nice sunny day, what could go wrong? I’ll tell you what can wrong, the bloody drone went wrong, it went the wrong way. The drone reached an altitude of about 50 to 60 meters and veered off towards the olive grove and that’s where I lost track of it.

No big deal, just go into the olive grove and fetch the drone? No! There are about 2000 olive trees and it could have landed in any one of them. I have now been searching for 2 weeks and I have still not found it. DRo9nes have a mind of their own. I will let you know if I ever find it.
