    Hi,

    Could you use the Naza, GPS, maybe even other parts like the TX and RX from a DJI Phantom v1.1.1 to build a cheap F550 or similar? TBS Disco etc?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Yep, the parts are definitely transferrable and that's one of the great things about the Phantom. It's a tight integrated package but it uses entirely standard multirotor components.

    Two caveats - the separate leg-mounted compass and unprotected GPS module are going to be a pain to collectively deal with, and you'll need a PMU unless you want to transfer the mainboard along with the other components.

    Cool, think i'm moving towards a TBS Discovery Pro now, would the TX/RX from the Phantom be able to be used on another quad build too? I know i should get a good TX anyway, but is it possible?

    Thanks
