    Is it possible to replace phantom 3 standard 2.7k camera with phantom 3 4k camera?

    I'm not sure but are you talking about the 4K camera off of a P3 standard or the 4K camera from a P3 Pro? I'm thinking it's two different camera's

    I'm not sure, I think it has something to do with software. This question gets asked often around here.. no expert at all but I'm pretty sure it's been tried

    Well I believe there is a model phantom 3 4k , right? I'm wondering if the camera from it will fit a phantom 3 standard.

    It will fit for sure, but unless someone corrects me, I don't believe that the birds have compatible software, I remember reading something about overheating..

    A while back "I THINK" I saw a post that someone did it and the app saw the different camera and updated the software. Maybe it's just
    wishful thinking on my part.

    No........ Not a straight swap, and to the extent it might be done probably not be worth the effort/cost.

    4K camera at top.

    Notice the significant differences in the connectors.
