I got this used but in excellent shape.
MKS 6100's all around on a 4 cell AA Eneloop pack with Spektrum "Carbon Fuselage" receiver.
I was going to switch to a Hitec rec'r but it doesn't really fit anywhere so the project stalled until recently when I bit the bullet and bought a Gen 2 DX8 radio.
Programming and channel setup is odd but I'm getting there.

I've been playing with the Syma x8c for a few months and have found it to be an excellent entry level quad. The stock camera is crap, but the lifting power is sufficient for a range of better action cameras. I've gone with the Runcam2 HD specifically for the FPV functionality. When paired with a lightweight VTX I've gotten a complete FPV setup for < $200!
-Syma x8c w/ transmitter $60
-Runcam2 HD $55
-Eachine VTX03 $13
-Eachine EV800 $55
-battery for VTX $5
I've found that when flying to capture higher quality video (my cheap-o version of of cinematic) that the FPV setup is not conducive. But flying FPV also makes for some fun videos when I fly this thing like I don't care if I crash it. Because I don't, because it was so damn cheap!

Except for one blizzard, it really was a mild winter for flying here in NE PA USA. I've been getting out once or twice a week steadily, but not at the club field because it is not maintained over the winter and tends to get swampy. I've been limited to parks. There are 3 close by that are perfect for UMX and park flyers, but the big guys have been in storage. The ground was still a little soft Wednesday, but good enough to walk on without getting water in your shoes or even sinking down. I was so excited to fly that I even forgot to take video. I just grabbed one image. In that image is Bob S. from RCG and Bob S. Sr. There is at least 70 years of flying experience there. If you click on the pic and keep clicking until you are fully zoomed in, you can see them flying the The HobbyKing Edge 540T EPP/Light Plywood 3D Aerobatic Airplane 1430 mm they put together over the winter. It is a beautiful plane and with their set up they can do some really spectacular flying. Maybe I'll get video next time.
The iSDT SC-620 is a highly compact charger that is capable of a 500W high power output. It's new technical design also adopts a wide voltage input so you can power it with voltage ranging from 9 to 30V making it extremely versatile, you can power it with a car battery, larger LiPo, notebook power brick, dedicated PSU, etc. The charger is also easy to use and program, it only has one push jog dial and the menu is highly intuitive and all the settings are put in a logical way.

FH-770 is released! This FH-770 is a new generation of waterproof type unmanned aerial vehicles developed by Foxtech using the latest technology.The fuselage of FH-770 is made of all-composite material which features light weight and high strength. The closed fuselage structure features better water resistance which is not available in the similar type quadcopter, so FH-770 can work in all kinds of bad weather and has a high working attendance. The huge fuselage makes it possible to instal a variety of mainstream flight control system, like Pixhawk, Dji A2 and NAZA V2, it also can load the lithium battery up to 6s 22000mah, so this FH-770 can meet the long route and long flight time requirements. With flexible power system combination configuration, equipped with different telemetry flight control, the FH-770 also can achieve Automatic take-off and landing, and route planning functions, so FH-770 also can meet the long-distance operating requirements. FH-770 has enough space between the center board and the ground that can load various gimbal and camera, like FH310Z HD 10X Optical Zoom Camera with 3 Axis Gimbal ,FH318/FH318Z HD 18X Optical Zoom Camera with 3-axis Gimbal and FOXTECH SEEKER-10 HD 10X Optical Zoom Camera with 3-axis Gimbal. FH-770 can be applied to various industries: aerophotography, emergency rescue, aero-logistics, pesticides spraying, remote sensing surveyand mapping and other applications more than your wildest imagination.

In the video I compare it directly to the Blade Inductrix and I show it next to the JJRC H36 as well. I also fly it in my place with FPV. The only other quadcopter I have tried that with is the Blade Nano QX2 FPV. This one seems to handle bouncing off the walls and crashing much better without damaging props.
It pairs really well with the WSX-F01 dual antenna FPV Goggles I got with it. See that video below:
