This is a great read for using the Lemon RC PPM on the EOX while using a deviated Devo TX. I used it to set up my Devo 7e.

I am also planning to purchase 2mm and 5mm red and black shrink tubing off of hobbyking as well. $0.25 is cheap as heck for 1 m of it...

As long as your charger has a JST connector this will allow you to charge 5 batteries at a time...

Or for faster US shipping.... (but more $$)

LOL, they are actually only 30 miles from me.....

Cheapest I have seen......

EDIT : You could also use these with the stock charger but would take a much longer time to charge!!!!!

Here is how to get an up to date timestamp on your videos etc on the Syma X5C-1....


Time-Stamps for Camera Files:
This may or may not be an issue, I have experienced it before and felt I would address if you are having the same problem with the time-stamps. When viewing the directory on the micro-SD card, the time-stamps may indicate the same wrong date, for instance my video and pictures all indicated 10-1-2014 which was over a month off. The easiest method I have found to set the cameras date is to create a text file using notepad or something similar and name it TIME.TXT. Once you have created the text file, open and enter one line of context with the current time following year, month, day and time. The formula would look something like this: YYYY/MM/DD HOUR.MIN.SEC, an example for today at the time of this writing is 2015/04/20 23:00.00. Save the file with that context of your current date and time and you should be good to go and your pictures/video will now have the correct time-stamps.

OK, here it is at long last!!!! I think the documented pictures below explain everything better than I could in words. Hopefully they show up in correct order.

I will make another post with footage etc. very shortly but it works PERFECTLY!!!



One note : The wires are on the opposite side as the X5C camera's, not a huge problem but it could make mounting etc. a little more difficult unless you modify the wires etc. I drilled a small hole on the other side for the wires, works great! Also, for those of you who dont know, you use a pin to push in the bare metal showing on the one side of the plug while you gently pull on the wire. It should slide out pretty easily! Then use a razor blade or knife to pull the tab back out before you insert it into the correct slot.


Unless someone requests it, I might not take the camera apart for a while.

EDIT : I have since removed the velco as it was giving way too much jello in the videos. I have instead used the double sided foam tape to secure it to the battery door and ALL JELLO has disappeared!!!!!

I am not going to dive in deep on how to actually DO the mod as it has been documented many times. If you need additional help I suggest searching youtube etc.

These are the items I ordered to complete my mod....

RP-SMA male cable
and

+5dbi 2.4GHz antenna

Pictures below show the solder points and how I installed the above parts....

I used a dremel tool to cut off the fake antenna from its plastic base. I also used it to remove the first "bump" on the stock TX and a wide enough diameter to fully screw on the antenna.

It has increased range to a minimum of 150m (as far as I have tested it) and seems to have increased the response of the quad as well as fixed any dropouts from happening.

all you need are the pinouts for the camera only. give it power and the VRX is ready to go. I think you can simply short out the video start to ground to start video or perhaps it starts sending FPV video with just power and the control wire simply starts video recording, I dont recall off hand but I know it works....
