    Hello

    I have a video source from a gopro3 and a video source from a sony readty nade rc cam - is there a way to toggle berween the two sources with the stock dji remote control transmitter?
    Currently i can toggle the video output with a micro switch on the quad. Works great but i wiuld like to toggle the video signal during flight

    It can be done, but you'll have to give up your gimbal pitch control. There's several options available, but here's an example of what you'd install on the Phantom to switch between the two camera inputs using the 7th channel on the transmitter: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/index. ... cts_id=472

    It would also require re-working a good percentage of the wiring job you just completed.
