Great setup ... i'd like to make the same !

Can you take some more shoot ? I'd like to see which wire you use, did you had to soldering something ?

I'd like a shopping list ! I know I have to buy AVL58 with spyro antenna, iOSD mini, but which cable do I need (Phantom 2 + zenmuse + gopro 3) ?

Soldering not really required

Soldering is not really required. Four wires need to be connected and is dependent on which FPV system you have. Directions come with particular FPV system. Correct wires can be twisted together and a small wire-nut (gray 3/8 inch) twisted over each connection. Small gray wire-nuts are available at most hardware stores. Makes for a quick easy to change installation.

I am an electrical engineer and not really adverse to soldering. The above is a quick easy way to do it without soldering though.

I use the 3M double sided outside tape, the grey stuff with the red plastic covering. It works great!

I just realized that the mini iosd screen on the picture above looking totally different, not only the battery symbol but many key features are missing! Like which mode you are in (att/gps), kompass status, decending/ climbing bar etc.. instead you obviously see useless gopro information. That would be a shame, thats annoying. The mini iosd is going crazy on this picture, there is a single V on the top right, what does that mean? Or is that the V from the former Voltage number on the left? It seems it is full with bugs

First of all I apologize for my scholastic english, but I really need some infos about the Phantom 2 (not VISION) I am going to preorder on monday here in Italy: that's a real dream for me, and it will be my very first quad.

As I want to buy it with the H3-2D sold in bundle, will I be able to mount a compact camera, or micro-camera different from the Go-PRO 3 on it? And is that gimbal only for the HERO 3...or could I also consider the HERO 3+?
I read something about a focus issue on the HERO 3+...I think I should better buy the previous version, even if after a few time...while I am Learning to fly the P2 at my best. Any advises for this noob?

Never had a GP before, never a gimbal...and never anything like a Phantom

You can ONLY mount the GoPro 3 or 3+ in the H3-2d gimbal.

The h3-2d only accepts a gopro 3 or 3+. I have also read about the focus issue but I think it has been resolved. I double check that information and then make your decision.

Phantom 2 Assistant


Is there a separate Assistant program for the Phantom 2 vs the Phantom Vision? Can't find an assistant program for the Phantom 2 on DJI Website.

I think if Dronefly doesn't get them in on Monday I may cancel and order with you.

Do you have a extra Battery and a set of blades to add to the order.

Yes, we are waiting for it. Only the beta testers have access to the program.

Not an issue if you retrofit the stock lens with a non-fisheye lens from Sunex (see previous posts for details)
