I just installed the c4002 camera on my MJX X500 and am pleased as to how it works,especially since it was only about $14 .Its very slim and lightweight and doesn't affect flight performance whatsoever.Flight times are shortened somewhat while taking video but that is to be expected since the camera is powed from the quadcopters power supply.If you are looking for cheap but good quality camera for your mjx ayrcraft I recommend the c4002

Hello Rcgroup, I just got my C4002 camera in that I bought for use one my X400 and X500,I installed it on the X400 first since my X500 has a wounded arm from an earlier night flight.Did not work on the 400, weird,got power but never indicated it was recording,messed with it for a while still no record.So why not test it on the new quadcopter the X500.Power on hit camera button(just made the 400 flip)and woolaah light on camera flashes as it should as described in the instructions.My thought is the older model x400s were not set up for cameras,in some videos I have seen they have a slot to plug in but no actual connection.My 400 has connection but possibly missing something in the protocol?Quik test flight inside it does work fine on the X500 and is easier to install on the 500 as well,so got to patch this bird up a little and get some video with it,happy flying all!

Hello all,
I have had a few mini quadcopters over the past some good some bad.The XinLin X165 is in the good catagory.I have had about a week of flying this nicely designed quadcopter,one thing that stand out right off is it dos not look like most other minis out there and I like that.It is a bit heavier than other quads of its size so getting the throttle amount right for smooth flying took a little getting used to.It has plenty of power though,I may replace the thumbpads with sticks on the controller for better control but overall this quadcopter is well worth what it is selling for.Find one here https://goo.gl/lVHUIm also here is a video with some flight demo and review.Enjoy

Hi All,

I have been having a lot of fun with this quadcopter.Pretty impressed with it especially consider the price.I have been using my sj4000 cam for capturing videos with it and that has gone pretty good I recently ordered a MJX brand camera for it which should work on all my MJX quadcopters.Its a $14 camera so I don/t expect alot but wanted to give it a try as I can control the pictures and video via my tx.I will post vids on those result once I receive that setup.Till then here is more footage using my sj4000
