    Hello,

    I just purchased a chinese gimbal for my FC40. I have been doing research and noticed that my gimbal did not come with an antenna to communicate with the transmitter (In order to control the pan/tilt functions of the gimbal). Does anyone know where i could get that antenna? Thanks

    Your gimbal should have a connection for the signal wire from the Naza control,usually F2. You can set your radio transmitter to control the tilt function.

    Welcome to the forum Walter.

    I have never see such a fine set of instructions for a cheap gimbal, as the set provided for you by the seller. Please refer to them. Within the instructions you will find a link to a "Connection Diagram".
