    My name isnt Jason, but I believe that is correct wires. The red and black go to power supply and the other 2 (sometimes white and yellow) go to the camera board that will send the signal out the antenna. My guess is some cameras come with the transmission board already attached so all it needs is power. The camera you got is probably made to be paired with a tx board.

    :rolleyes: ... Make and model of camera ? Make and model of JJRC ? Type of video transmitter ?
    You can't just pop in a camera without having a transmitter to send the video with, is that part of the main board in the quad,
    built into the camera, or a separate unit? :confused:
    If you'll provide us with more specific information then we can probably tell you not only what wires to use but also exactly where they go. ;)

    The quad is a jjrc h-67 santa drone and the camera is a CM275T 5.8G 25mW 48CH NTSC/PAL Mini VTX 600TVL FPV

    Although yours may have different wires the black & red are obviously power & ground, in your case orange is probably video & blue, audio. These would attach to an osd if you have one. So all you need to do is connect +- to a 5v source & its plug & play.. Just tune the Vrx in.
