So this is essentially a kit with the 7th ch lever and the PMU required to make Zenmuse work? I assume the blank, silverish spot is for Naza?

So I would have to unsolder all things, resolder them onto the new board.. No thanks DJI, should have released this when the Zenmuse was out. I already installed a PMU V2 to use it anyways.

Sell the dang lever seperate and I am happy.

This would be good as you will shave 28g off the additional weight of the PMU v2.

I'm more curious about the 6 pin video link though...cos the video out cable originally connects to the GCU of the Zenmuse. So where does this put this 6pin video link then?

Is it going to be some sort of OSD function so that you can read voltage, altitude and compass readings from?

Have a strong feeling that this board and 7th lever will be a standard in all future Phantoms. Then all you will need is to get a Zenmuse H3-2D and you are good to go.

DJI Phantom Upgrade Kit Installation (4 min 40 sec)


The installation video is out....but the product is not.

So with this kit, we don't have to install the PMU V2 and the GCU.

Since DJI is worldwide it may be that different parts of the world will receive shipments at different times. I was told to look for it to arrive mid Aug in the Atlanta area, USA.
Who the hell knows.
I've held off installing the gimbal until the new board arrived. Now I'm being told that DJI is working on some gimbal issues that we have all read about and some have actually experienced.
Right now DJI is a money making machine with many disgruntled customers.
Waiting for the dust to settle before I spend anymore money.

I am looking forward to this. I mounted the H3-2D on my Phantom but it was really crowded under the canopy and I was really not happy so I removed it. It now resides on my F450 and I am happy with it.

Loving my h3-2d on my 450 also. This board will make me rethink that if it includes pmu and gcu. It sure looks like it does.

really great to see this...I think when I weighed the PMU it was like 25 grams? GCU must be more...that's around 50 grams maybe a little more counting all the cables - not insignificant and frees up room for an osd

If I want to use the new Bluetooth module and/or the "iOSD mini" how do I? I don't see where I would connect them...

I saw the video but I don't think it had anything on using the Bluetooth module or the mini iOSD.
