    Hi
    Is it posible to change the 5.8ghz freq. to 2.4ghz and then use a Divo remote control for the FC40 ?

    You can put a Phantom 1.1.1 receiver into it, not sure about using one with that particular controller, though.

    How many channels does the Devo receiver have, and what types of output?

    You'll need at least a 5-channel controller, for the 4 stick channels plus the flight mode channel...otherwise your Phantom will be stuck in Failsafe mode.

    Are you looking at the Devo controller that comes with the H500?

    I think you need at least 7 channels. Four for directions, one each for Failsafe, GPS/ATT, IOC. One more if you want to control the tilt on a gimbal.

    You need 7 channels to use all those functions, but it can still fly with just 5.

    1-4 = sticks
    5 = flight mode
    6 = IOC (optional but recommended)
    7 = gimbal (optional)

    Here's how I understand you can do it , using Dji Parts Number 30 and 31. the big problem seems to be getting hold of part 31 there as rare as rocking horse **** here in the uk.
    had my FC40 three weeks replaced the stock camera with my gopro after the first flight and placed an order for 2.4ghz TX/RX so I can us 5.8ghz fpv with my gopro

    Also found this option but its a little more expensive
