Toyhouse Syma Toy Drones in 1500 to 4500 Rupees Toy by Jagatpal Verma - August 11, 2016May 21, 20180 During childhood, everyone loves to play with toys. Later, we grow up but that child still lives in some corner of our hearts. This is the reason why every new tech and gadget fascinates us even during adulthood. Those who are of the same age as mine would know the level of craze there was about RC cars in the early 2000s. Children would save pocket money for months just to get a toy car they could control wirelessly. The world of today is a lot different from the year 2000. Normal RC cars do not generate curiosity among children anymore. The children of today are more inclined towards toys like RC Drones. In fact, these quadcopters have become a hot topic among the adult population also. One can easily find hundreds of channels on YouTube where people upload their drone videos every day. In this article, we will dive deeper into what drones are and what you need to keep in mind while purchasing them. Why Drones Have Become So Popular These Days? A drone is a flying vehicle operating without a human onboard. Although, we generally consider drones as a toy but they were originally designed for military operations. But due to their high potential, these machines are now used for various other purposes like videography, policing and playing. The oldest movie I can think of featuring a drone or quadcopter is 3 Idiots. As far as I know, a majority of Indian population came to know about drones only after watching this movie. Other flying toys like helicopters and planes have now become a bit less mainstream. As per an estimate, more than 10 lakh consumer-level drones (non-military) have already been sold worldwide. ►Things To Keep In Mind While Buying Toy Drones with Camera You cannot just wake up one day and decide to buy a drone. These are not like other toys in the market, which one can buy without having a second, though. Before making a purchase, there are some very important things a customer needs to consider. Indian Law: The very first thing you need to consider is the law concerning drones. DGCA had issued a notification in the year 2014 banning all civil drone operations without permission. The procedure of taking permission is really long and confusing. Luckily, the same government body released a draft regulation document in the April of this year. Therefore, we will soon have a regulation with simple procedures of acquiring permission.

Be sure to purchase a drone only going through all the concerned laws and getting the required permission from the government. Purpose: Drones can be used for many things. Some high-priced drones come with features like waypoint flight, GPS, third-party camera slot, etc. These features will be really helpful if you are shooting a movie or transporting something. Each purpose demands a different type of drone. Thus, it is really important to decide what you will do with a drone after purchasing it. Safety: As I said, Drones pose a great danger to the general public. In case of a malfunction, a quad-copter can fall on anyone and cause a serious accident. Moreover, these flying machines have the capability to go really high in the sky and collide with planes. In order to avoid a hazard, one needs to be fully prepared. Go for a proper training and use proper equipment. ►Some Good Quad-Copters Drone for Kids in the Market Toyhouse is a reputed brand when it comes to RC toys. The company has a long history of selling toys for kids of all ages. Recently, it launched a series of drones in the Indian market. We did intensive research and came up with four models that offer some cool features to the customer. One important thing to mention here is Toyhouse does not manufacture these drones on its own. Instead, it just resells drones of another brand called Syma. However, there is no need to worry about anything because Syma is also a trusted drone company and has a good fan following. →Toyhouse X5C-1 Explorers Drone with HD CAMERA Available at 3,824 rupees, the X5C-1 is a great quad-copter and is good for playing as well as video recording.

You will be amazed to see how stable the flight of this drone is. In my opinion, it is the best drone one can buy under the price cap of 10,000 rupees. The remote is big and sports many control modules. This camera also offers 360-degree rotation, which is good for people who shoot videos. It saves power by using 2.4 GHz band to communicate. Onboard battery lasts for 7 minutes and gets charged in 40 minutes. It would be a smart decision to purchase extra set of batteries before using the X5C-1 drone. A big downside of this camera is it comes hard-paired with the kit remote. Thus, customers will not be able to use another controller with it.

This 1500-rupee device comes in a quite small body (so small, users can easily fit it on their palms). In fact, I would highly recommend beginners to first try this drone out, develop skills and then purchase other costly copters. There is nothing special about the X12 Nano. It is a standard drone with standard features. Its battery life is low and can disappoint many customers. Read also Play Panda Toys: Magnetic Puzzles and Brain Booster for Kids.
