    You need to buy one and tell us what you think of it. Personally for what you get it seems way overpriced. Way way over.

    So does the new wifi version have a live video out feed?
    Allowing for use as an FPV flight cam?

    If so that would be great. I am not interested in a plug on module, just a feed to connect to a VTX I am already using.

    Yes it does. There is a thread discussing these aspects on RCGroups.

    Well i agreed this SJ4000 DV is not bad but i just saw some youtube videos. The night vision seems bad actually.

    Why don't you consider something smaller, lighter and much more aerodynamic than such cubes? Of course, it depends where you'd like to mount, but for me perfect cam to mount on a plane or helicopter is Drift Stealth: http://store.driftinnovation.com/cam...rift-stealth-2.

    BUMP.

    Of course there have been more than a few SJ models released since this original posting and DOZENS of other remakes as well. So I felt it necessary to reply to mention this amazing camera (for the price) that actually compares to a GoPro IMO but of course is not a GoPro "killer"... BUT, certainly worth the price - has some very impressive specs to say the least.

    my brother bought what the packaging said was "sj5000" but im pretty sure when i look at all the firmware and such is more likley a sj4000 and uses it on his 3DR Iris and i dont think i can recommend it, especially when the Xiaomi Yi is out there, i have the Yi and its pretty darn good, not a great as my Hero 3 Black but pretty damn close at a fraction of the cost.

    I put an example below of one of his flights, mind you this is with a 2 axis gimbal also

    a friend purchased the SJ5000X that I mentioned above from FT - and it is absolutely incredible - blows my GoPro 3 out of the water in every way... and for less than 1/2 the price... UNREAL! he and I both have been recommending it to anyone looking into purchasing this particular style camera.... for less than $140 shipped its an outstanding value - PERIOD!

    I would also like to mention I recently purchased the new Hawk-Eye Sharp Vision7" dvr 5.8ghz diversity high brightness 700lux monitor for $134 shipped on eBay - now hard to find that cheap - closer to $150+ now - but it is an incredible buy as well... I highly recommend it... you won't find a better monitor for under $250+ - PERIOD!...
    bottom line - if looking into purchasing a monitor and want following specs - you cannot go wrong at this pricepoint...

    it has:
    7" (700lux brightness) - most standard ones are only 450-500
    built in microSD DVR
    D1/VGA/SVGA resolution (i think 800x640) ntsc and/or pal
    dual recievers (diversity) 2 antenna connections
    auto-scan 32 channel 5.8ghz (can manually select channel if needed too of course)
    connection for any size external battery - 2S-6S (i expecially enjoy being able to use large 5000mah+ batt for long time use)

    i could go on and on about the value of this monitor... I can't believe it... :-)
