    I have a P3S. Does the camera record sound as well as video. If it does, how do you turn on that feature?

    Thanks. Jim B.

    From what I have read PS3's do not record sound, I know my PS3 doesn't.

    No. No DJI Phantom camera records sound.

    If you have heard sound on a video on YouTube, the that sound was recorded on a separate device and added to the video.

    Why would you want to record sound from your drone? The only thing you would hear is the god-awful noise of four electric motors mixed with the wind noise from the props.

    Here's a video of one of my first flights with my Syma X5C-1. The sound is unbearable.

    Did u ever get it out of the tree? Mine was 46" up in a tree for a month in the rain till a strong gust of wind dialoged it. Took the battery out, dried it of with a hair dryer. for 4 hours. Put a battery in it and we're flying again. Things are indestructible.

    I did. Two days after it got stuck in that tree I managed to get it out using a fishing rod with an M8 nut tied to the end of the line. Before trying that approach I had tried rocking the drone by spinning and stopping the motors. Two of the props were blocked, though, so I had to replace two melted motor mounts and two seized motors at a total cost of $4. Then I changed the battery and my Syma has performed flawlessly ever since :)

    I own a Syma X5C-1 and Cheerson CX-20 (with Blackview Hero 2 cam), both record sound but **** all I hear is the noisy propeller sound. So yeah, no need for sound recording in my P3A.
