    Hi folks, I’ve just taken delivery of one of these for my Bugs 3 but the FPV monitor I’ve ordered is lagging hopelessly behind somewhere in the Far East! Can someone advise me if I can use my smartphone Drocon app to link to the C5830 and if so which would the best 5.8ghz channel be on the FPV camera? Thanks

    The C5830 and C5820 camera's are analogue 5.8ghz only (with a 720p record to a SD card feature built into the unit). They are not WIFI camera's. If you want to turn your Android smartphone into a analog 5.8ghz receiver you need a Eachine-ROTG01 and your smartphone needs to support OTG.

    The MJX Drocon app was designed for other MJX quadcopters that use a WIFI 2.4ghz signal.

    The only WIFI camera's MJX sells separately are the C4010,C4008 (720p) and C4005 (480p) and they both use a WIFI 2.4ghz signal.

    EDIT: They do another camera that's compatible with the bugs 3 and 6. It's called the C4020 and it uses 2.4ghz WIFI and the app is called MJX H.

    5G WIFI is only used to stream 1080p video to a smartphone because it needs a higher data transfer rate. The only MJX quadcopter that uses a 5G WIFI connection is the Bugs 2 B2W.

    Hope that helps.
