I opened it 2 times to see if there was any kind of switch or bridge to do, but I did not take a picture of it. Tomorrow I'll open it and I'll publish the photos here.

Where you able to distinguish the wifi-transmitter, or is that incorporated into the cameras circuitery?

Cool! And thanks!

Interesting. Maybe I'm thinking wrong, but that looks to me that it shouldn't be too difficult to remove that 5Gwifi board and exchange it for a 5.8gHz vTx

I'm back now from the first flight with the X3.
- photos and videos are upside down
- decent photo / video quality (1080p)
- the drone suffers from an annoying drift even in gps mode
- Automatic RTH led the drone to be ungovernable, practically flying away. I struggled to bring it back to the ground.

Here's the video. Turn on SUBS and Auto translate from Italian to English.

JJPRO X3. Per ora un bel NO [l'ho quasi perso] (15 min 12 sec)

So you took the quad apart first then tested it?.................maybe you did something wrong when putting it back together?

Well, i think is practically impossible, I did not touch anything. Only open, photographed and closed. The internal wiring is done well, there are no stray wires or rough connectors.

The first minutes of flying were nice. It started strange behaviors after some time.

Well, my JJPRO X3 is on its way.

@Merch: maybe change the title to include the JJPRO X3 HAX and GoolRC Binge1 too?? All 3 quads look to be pretty much te same except for their color.

The H3 Hax and the Binge may be the same. But the Eachine is advertised with dual GPS and costs more. Am thinking that the EX-1 may have an improved GPS system compared to the other two? I should be able to confirm that in the near future.

Anyways, here is my review of the JJPRO X3 HAX. In a nutshell, its GPS system could be better.

Didn't notice that difference in the discription of the quads But then again: other things have been claimed before on chinese sites Will be interesting to see if there's a difference between the three quads

This is what i was saying all along is Eachine always does something different with there quads and hopefully it does not have the problem the X3 Hax does.
I will have my EX1 soon then we will find out if they have changed anything,there is one thing i don't like is altitude hold,GPS and RTH all on the one switch not a great idea imo.

Q101 drone behaves like mine. My drone, in addition, started toilet b.e. during rth with heavy drifting.
Hope that ex1 will be different.
