What’s inside the video streaming CX-10W drone?

Article By : Brian Dipert

Cheerson’s CX-10W simultaneously supports 2 different 2.4GHz protocols--IEEE 802.11 and Panchip Microelectronics' proprietary scheme.

The $20 CX-10W live streams images to a Wi-Fi-connected Android- or iOS-based smartphone, tablet or other device. By default, it is also controlled by that same Android- or iOS-based device… but drone enthusiasts say that a CX-10 or CX-10C's transmitter can alternatively also control the quadrotor.

If true, this means that the CX-10W simultaneously supports two different 2.4GHz protocols; the industry-standard 802.11 and Panchip Microelectronics' proprietary scheme.
