    I just got an email ad from Geekbuying which listed the SJCAM, SJ5000 as being on pre-sale order with what appears to be shipments beginning as early as next week. I've been very interested in this model but didn't think SJCAM would have it out this quick. The specs are pretty impressive and it uses the same Ambarella A7LS75 DSP chip as the GoPro. The Pre-sale price is $169.00 as compared to the "Reg Price" of $218.00. I'm picking one up for sure but just wondered what others thought about this cam. I'm really interested in the range of wifi on the cam. I know it can't compete with dedicated FPV systems but if it just gives me the same distance as the cam that comes with the FC40 I'll be a happy, happy camper. This will be my Christmas present to myself. :D

    Main features:
    Ambarella A7LS75 DSP + Panasonic 16 Megapixel 1/2.33" CMOS Sensor
    1080P 60/30FPS FHD Video Recording
    WiFi Connection for iOS / Android device
    Support AV out while recording with specific USB-to-AV cable

    Support HDMI HD output function
    Support AV out while recording with specific USB-to-AV cable(optional)
    Car mode makes it working perfectly as a dash cam
    Support web camera function
    Detachable battery that is easy to replace and prolongs your cameras service life
    Compatible with Most Mounts and Accessories
    Water-resistant up to 30 meters under water

    Perhaps an External Antenna Mod would drastically increase the cameras built in WiFi signal range.

    If you purchase one and take it apart, then take pics and post them. Perhaps there is way to attach an external antenna mod.

    If so, I am willing to work further to adapter the AR Drone External Antenna Kit.
