V666 board upgrade has headless mode and better antenna. I lost the quad in February and when it was founded the range was amazing 370m. You can read my fly-away story:

The board gives enough power to SJ4000 taking timelapse photos but when I tried to take video it was not possible (perhaps the camera has some damage). Before with V262 board video was possible like in this post:

and also in this post I wrote that V262 camera connection gives enough power to SJ4000:

One of the best upgrades is Syma X6 motor set upgrade. I am still waiting that some shop will publish better motor upgrade kit for V262/V666 -family. But I think after this year I will go to a new model like Syma X8C or MJX X101.

Some more tips to save motors:
Immediately cut down the throttle when crashing so that propellers don't get hit or stuck anything when motors spin
Use only max about 80% throttle
Keep flight time short (mine usually 5 minutes)
Give some cooling time before next flight
Avoid flips and other acrobatic maneuvers
Keep the quad as light as possible (mine under 250g with camera and stock battery)
Avoid VRS = vortex ring state (unstable air under propellers, quad stalling)

All V262 motors are identical and that's why front left and rear right motors are typically wearing out faster. They are not developed to spin that way. When you fly and turn the quad left these motors are spinning harder and wearing faster.

Is there anyone who is still using his V262?

Mine is dead and now I have a new quadcopter (X380) but I still have many parts for V262 like for example 12 new motors (I purchased many motors when I saw how fragile they were) and also some parts from my V262 like arms or propeller...

If you want it, please ask me, my main idea is not to make money of it, but to give them to peoples who are still using this quadcopter so I don't have to put them on a trash...
