    Hello,

    I would like to buy the Phantom 2 with Zenmuse 3-axis gimbal for video use in combination with the GoPro 3 black. I'm wondering what the best upgrades are? I want to keep the budget as tight as possible.
    What is a nice, easy to install FPV solution? The FlyCamOne HD looks pretty easy to install and use.

    I think I'm going to replace the landing gear (since I don't want the gear in the GoPro view), is this a proper kit? http://www.fpvmodel.com/atg-dji-phantom ... _g246.html
    It looks pretty decent.

    Does anybody know where I can get black rotors for the Phantom? And how many batteries do you guys recommend? Is it possible to use 2 batteries and every time I fly charge the other one?


    Thank you so much!

    And is there any way to make the Phantom 2 quicker?

    If you don't already have the gopro 3 black. Better read up on it. I have heard many say the infinity focus is not sharp and being on a quad you need sharp focus

    I'm going to use the GoPro 3 black from a friend of mine for a few times, I'm going to order the GoPro 4 when it comes out.

    Thanks for the tip though.
