    Hello,

    When I record my flight with the fc40 camera, I get a nice video but no sound at all. There is no setting on the android app. Am I missing something or my camera is damaged?

    Thanks.

    No sound on the DJI cameras.

    I have a thread somewhere where I took one apart to see what was going on with the mic issue, and found out that there's actually a spot on the board where a mic used to be, but was later removed. I then did some more research on it, and found out that the fc40 camera is actually a remake of another camera by rollei. Not sure what the model of this one is, but I think you can still buy it, but I think it's far more expensive than the fc40 camera, so you might as well go with a gopro if you're wanting a replacement with sound, and improved video quality.

    edit: I think it's called the rollei mini wifi camcorder 1
    and apparently it also comes in black!

    also the price seems to be 109,99 € (about $115.65 US Dollars) on their website

    hope this helps
