    I have a gopro 2 and I'm looking into a quad. Should I stick with my gopro or spend the extra $20 for the fc40?

    If you want to use the gopro with the standard Phantom you'll have a potential issue with flyaways as the transmitting frequency and Wifi frequency for the GoPro are both 2.4GHz. This means the Phantom cam lose sync with the transmitter and cause issues.

    The FC40 uses 5.8GHz for the transmitter so there is much less worry of frequency clashes causing issues.

    For the $20 difference I'd get the FC40
