There is not much informations about that engine on the WWW.
I shot the manual for anybody needs,before it disappears .(see below)
From the manual, it fully looks like a X5C clone.
Even complete sentences look like the one we found into the X5C user’s manual.
As for the inside board, it does not look like the X5C-10 board.

The inside of the engine is quite difficult to show.
The 4 gears ( brushed motor has a 9 teeth gear) blocs are glued to the plastic top of the engine, and the 4 motor wire pairs are soldered on te board : to disassemble the thing, one has to cut one pair of wires before he can turn back to plastic bottom and access to the electronics.

The boards presents a X297 RX chip and an invensense MPU6052C chip for gyro/accel sensing.

The 4 motor blocs does not use bearings ( wich means the motors gears will not last long if intensively used..)

I didn’t cut the wires for now, so here is a shot of the board has it can be seen by twisting the 2 plastic covers at the maximum possible :

Gyro recalibration procedure is ok as written in the user manual.
But the TX/RX pairing procedure does not work with the model i have.
For the pairing to work, i have to power the drone first, then only , start the RC transmitter and do the ‘up’ / ‘down’ left lever procedure.(the user’s manual says one has to power on the transmitter first..)

However, even with this method, it sometimes fail to pair : than, power-off TX, unplug, replug the drone’s battery, re- power on the TX, and try again…

This drone definetely miss a power/off button on it.
