    I have a rotorpixel gimbal on order. I have for about 2 months. I haven't heard anything and would like to cancel and just order the camera for the P2V+. Will that be compatible with my P2V?

    Any idea P2V with Rotorpixel performance versus the P2V+?

    The P2V+ gives you more flight time (25 vs 17) but a RP P2V will give you more versatility with camera options.

    I think the P2V+ wins based on flight time, range, and 3-axis vs 2-axis gimbal.

    isn't the rotorpixel gimbal a three axis?

    Rotorpixel is 2 axis but is supposedly upgradeable to 3 axis at a later date (for extra cost....)

    so if i haven't received my rotorpixel and have a mint condition p2v to sell, you think I should sell and get the p2v+ I don't care if I lose a bit of money in the process.

    My goal is to have the smoothest video possible. Also, camera quality is key

    If camera quality is key, Phantom 2, Zenmuse H3-3D and GoPro 3+ is the answer.

    But you'd lose all the camera control, FPV out of the box etc.

    I'm only really concerned with camera quality between the p2v and the p2v+

    I want to keep the simplicity of control with iphone
