    Well, I got my Phantion Vision yesterday ... finally got everything charged and ready to fly ... but then it was dark :(

    Anyway - I went out today ... learning the basic maneuvers ... this thing is amazing and yup, I'm hooked! The only reason I stopped was because my fingers got too cold. LOL

    Anyway, we've got a cold(er) snap coming along with snow and freezing rain in the forecast for the next several days. So here are my questions:

    1) Is the P2V compatible with the Heli-X simulator?

    2) If so - I tried to open the transmitter case, but it's sticking up near the antennae, and I'm afraid I'll break something. Is there some special trick to opening the case?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know about the Heli-x, but gently rock the case sideways and it should come apart. There is nothing holding it in place.
    Just be careful as the antenna is attached by wire to the board inside.

    Thanks guys, got it!

    It doesn't seem compatible with Heli-X ... so I guess I'll just have to wait for better weather :(

    Thanks again!

    Or by a USB controller like this:

    Only $19 I got one of these and it works great with Heli-X
