    New to quads and RC in general and trying to learn a lot all at once. I'm comfortable piloting my FC40 now and am curious about upgrading to use an ipad GS. Can't seem to get any clear answer on what is involved with adding this functionality to the FC40. I know next to nothing about electronics so messing with soldering, etc is likely out of the question for me, but from all I've seen it appears all that is required are the GS components and a V2 PMU. Is this correct? Is there a video anywhere detailing the mod from start to finish- something that would show proper connection of the PMU to the flight controller, placement in the shell, running the antennae, etc.? Also, on the ground end, what gets connected to the bare power wires to power it- haven't seen an explanation on that? I apologize for the basic questions, but I'm just trying to understand what's involved and whether or not it's something I can do without screwing up.

    Thanks in advance for info/help!!
