    i have a question about changing the original 5.8Ghz receiver in a phantom 2 vision to a 2.4Ghz receiver
    if i have another DJ6 transmitter.

    i did a physical change and bind the TX and whn plugged phantom to a laptop everything seems to be working
    but when trying to power up nothing happens.

    is the naza in phantom 2 vision same as inside phantom 2 only or am i missing something?

    the reason i am doing this is because i prefer range on 2.4ghz over short distance 5.8ghz.

    if anyone knows please let me know.
    thank you

    You change the frekvens on the transmitter, and then binding with Phantom, - done !
    Receiver Works both in 5,8 & 2,4 Ghz

    You need to open the assistant software and recalibrate with new controller. I had the same issue.

    thanks guys.
    i did that and bound to new DJ6 TX and worked like a charm now.

    BWJ,

    Yep, you can switch remote between 2.4 and 5.8ghz and rebind with Phantom.
    CE/FCC on page 12 in manual.

    The CE/FCC pot does not change the frequency.

    It changes the strength of the TX to comply with local laws.

    After switching from CE to FCC the TX is still 5.8

    Be looking for something different to fall out of the mix as the year ends.
