Anyone know if DJI have fixed the gps exporter? I've tried a few versions (up to 1.4) with iosd log files and always get a zero length file. I've seen lots of reports of this but no reliable fix yet.....

I am adapting the polar pro filter to my gopro.. i am traveling to a beautiful island close by on Wednesday and will do few shoots and try out the polar ND filter on 2.7k ( the only resolution i find to be really usable on gopro). Lets see if i am going to be 100% free of jello and prop shadows.. I hope i will
I will post few pics later of the final mod if you guys want to take a look.

I also will try out the phantom with the P1 self tightening prop on 2.7k to see if its worthy .... I know its more stable.... but not sure what about jello.. I guess it creates less vibrations also facing the wind, because of all the round shapes that the P2 prop does not have. Also the noise it creates is much less so maybe its better, even though i will loose some flight time.
In the end i want to know if its better to have the p2 props with nd filter free of jello or the p1 prop free of jello but with less flight time (but probably not free of jello, just better, but how better?)
Lot of questions to get answered ... my fiance will not like to hold tight while i am answering them :P

The IOSDmini does not have this feature if that is what you are trying to use.

And thanks Dr. T.
It is hard to understand how one could miss a single post when these threads move so slow.

My question is, what are my best options for using my Samsung Note 3 for FPV? I'm finding it difficult to source a concise and detailed answer in regards to this.

The Phantom 1 and 2 (non-Vision) use 2.8 ghz for control communication, and any other radio equipment like wifi between a smart device and a GoPro, can interfere with that communication. And there are plenty of instances of guys loosing their quads while trying it.

Typically, if you want to use 2.8 ghz for fpv with your smart device, you want to use a Phantom Vision or Phantom FC40 which uses 5.8ghz for control.

Job is done here...
Here are some pictures of how i did.. I end up with 5.13 grams ... The housing of the polar pro itself is 5.97 grams LOL
Other then removing this housing I also removed at leas 60% of the glass of the filter.

This plastic that I used is pretty thick... I could easily remove more 1-2 grams if i sand down the walls to be thinner .... But not doing it right now..
Just have to balance the gimbal now.

The stock polar filter-10.4g

The new prop will be available very soon as a spare parts of E300 propulsion system and is compatible with all phantom aircrafts with self-tightening motors.

What is the influence of the new props to flight time on Phantom 2?

From my tests, it's about 45 seconds to a minute less than with 9443s on a P2. Very close in efficiency for the added thrust and stability.
