    When I first purchased my Phantom on Ebay a year ago, It was without a Gimbal and Camera,

    I've been using it as just a P2 with no camera attached, now I got a GoPro and wanted to fly it
    So Purchased a Gimbal:
    goo.gl/OPOkWh
    The thing is that all the videos I've seen on youtube on how to install it, I cant find where to connect the power for the Gimbal!!

    Am I missing somehting?

    Regards

    If you look at the Black and Red wire with the Red connector at the end. This needs to be plugged in into a power source. You can either steal power from the main board in the phantom or splice the power wire coming from the battery.

    Just an update in case some one is under this Setup.
    We┬┤ve been told that without the V2+ Gimbal we have no Telemetry/FPV/Waypoints ...
    well that's a Lie....
    After looking at a video of a Russian Guy, managed to get Telemetry and Waypoints !!!
    Dont have the Camera to test FPV ... will report if Get it Working ...

    Regards
