    Hi,

    Can someone explain what do these two cables do?
    And if possible, what each color on the short cable does?

    Is there a diagram anywhere?

    The grey cable plugs into the gimbal. The other cable is for FPV:

    Yellow: Video +
    Brown: Video ground
    Red: power +
    Brown: power ground

    How you connect it up depends on whether you are using an iOSD mini.

    The grey cable also provides power to the gimbal?

    Curious...

    Why are you so [seemingly] paranoid about the serial number of your P2 :?:

    Too late, I already read the barcode.




    Just kidding.

    FWIW, I don't see any reference to the sn on my receipt, etc. from Amazon.
    I doubt it is traceable back to you.

    But of course, 'to each his own'.

    Cheers!
