    I have a Vision+ V3 with the stock camera/gimbal and am wanting to mount my GoPro with a new gimbal. Is there a way to mount a new gimbal system with my GoPro and still have FPV with OSD without making any major modifications to the wiring system? What I'm really asking is there a plug and play that would give me the same operational functions that I have now when I mount the GoPro.

    Yes, it's possible. This is the discussion thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2213815
    The short version:
    - Open Phantom P2V+
    - Unplug/remove gimbal wires except for cable going into back of wifi module
    - Plug other end of that cable into the CAM port.
    - Plug in your H3-2D/3D/4D in as usual to anti-interference board.
    - (You may use other gimbals; they won't be as plug&play, though.)
    For Android, should work fine as is. For iOS, recommend using FPV Booster app to see telemetry.
