DJI Phantom 2 ***Owners Thread***



Well I just ordered the NEW Phantom 2 (Non Vision) from Drone Fly. expected shipping Dec 9th - 20th

I bought the Phantom 2 + H3-2D Gimbal Combo.

The battery was a little pricey, does anyone know of other battery options for the Phantom 2?

I will keep everyone posted once it ships!

Anyone know of a link to DJI's site discussing this new release?

I had been waiting for this version for a while since I have a GoPro Hero 3+

Well It's the two of us so far.

I also took advantage of the H3-2D Gimbal deal. it only added $190 or so to the price, couldn't pass that up!

I'm going to pre-order Phantom 2 with Zenmuse too as soon as my dealer confirms they will discount the Phantom 1 coupon.

Can't wait to get mine! They told me they expect the shipment to arrive by Dec 20th. ( dealer is near Madrid )

I asked drone fly about the gimbal an they said it is either already installed with plug and play, no soldering.

I'm pretty excited too, I really hoped they would start selling before Christmas. I wanted the 25 min flight times without having to put external batteries on the sides.

I'm guessing with the Gimbal 20 min flight time?

Hey Guys,

First of all, sorry for my English (Greetings from Austria - not that one with kangaroos !)

I have just pre-ordered my DJI Phantom 2 without the Zenmuse Gimbal.
Now my question is: The Phantom still has a Gimbal? I mean, there will be a normal (= the old Phantom 1) Gimbal to use my Hero3+?

Thanks for all your answers!
Samuel

dont quote me on this but i suspect the new phantom2 will NOT support the existing H3-2d gimbal. i think there is a difference in the connections of the zenmuse supplied as part of the phantom 2 bundle.

Pretty sure that is not the case.

Thanks for your answer!

I don't want to use an existing H3-2D Gimbal, I wanted to know if there's a camera mount included in the Version WITHOUT the Zenmuse Gimbal?

I'd be sad if I can't use my GoPro with the new DJI, just because I don't have the money for the Zenmuse Version....

Thanks for all your answers!

There are threaded screw holes in the bottom of the Phantom and it is simple to mount to them. If you just want to hard mount the GoPro there's a million Phantom owners not using the static mount that comes with the unit. I'll send you one if you need it.

Otherwise there's a lot of different mounts available from a number of sources with dampening and other features.
