    Contact VladoPortosRC on YouTube and ask him to meter-out the camera cable he no longer uses.

    Haha, those voltages are funny!

    I don't have a vision, but I'd guess the set up is
    Ring 1/2 = ground
    Tip = 3.2v
    Barrel = 12.2

    And that's only a guess based on my electrical experience! He has incorrectly measured the "Potential Difference" (PD) between the two circuits. To me it suggests there is one 12v +/- and another 3.2v +/- circuit.

    What's worse is that people are quoting him and spreading incorrect info :(

    You should be careful! But you are so lucky that your heli has not been destroyed.

    Black to tip
    White to Ring
    Green to Ring
    Red to Sleeve

    That should power-up the camera. If it doesn't connect to the app, swap White & Green.

    Had a wreck in phantom 3. Single gray wire from body to camera was ripped out, where can I get new wire and ends?
