    For the initial build of a 2.4ghz Phantom 2 with 5.8ghz FPV (to Apple devices now and eventually FatShark Goggles)…

    How much lamer would it be to substitute these Camera and Gimbal parts for initial build?

    Zenmuse H3-3D for Quanum Q-2D Brushless GoPro 3 Gimbal

    GoPro H3+ (Black) for GoPro 3 (white)

    Trying to shave some costs, but not if FPV results will be sub-par. Could save up to $300.

    Does the GoPro WiFi Remote come in handy?

    I’ve seen some YouTube videos of Phantom 2 Image Stabilization with similar 2D-Gimbal (Zenmuse 2D), and it wasn’t that bad.

    How are you planning to do FPV to apple devices with that setup?
