    so what would I need to convert a p1 to a fc40? I bought some used drones at a pawn shop, 2 for 500. a pv2+ and a p1. one with the upgraded controller, and a standard one on the other. I had a cracked antenna that I fixed with a 5 dollar digikey part for the gps lock on problem.

    What would I need to convert the p1 to a fc40? or what do I need to add other then the camera?

    The P1 operates on 2.4 ghz frequency and the FC40 is on 5.8 ghz. So whatever receiver you use has to match the transmitter. The FC40 camera is 2.4 ghz so it cant be on at the same time as the P1 radio system. Why would you want to convert a P1 to a FC40. Same bird except the FC40 has a camera.
