    Hi,

    My Phantom with Zenmuse gimbal is flying great. I got the DJI avl 5.8 tx/rx this morning to add FPV to it all. The cable that was in the box didn't have the 3 pin attached to it that plugs into the upgrade board for the Zenmuse inside my Phantom and then connects to the 8 port on the avl 5.8 tx. I don't know what to do.
    I've search for answers & websites looking to see if anyone sells the today but seem to be stuck. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

    Take a picture of what you did get. I think that you will either need to make a converter with a 3.5mm plug or get an IOSD 2.

    Thanks miskatonic,

    I took a picture and tried to upload it the site says "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached."

    I'd hate to buy a OSD 2, just more money I'm pouring into this. With the Phantom, Zenmuse and rx/tx I thought I was done buying things :)

    Did you at least get the 3.5mm video inout jack with the 5.8?

    You can set the Zenmuse up with the IOSD or just use the 3.5 jack.
