    My gimbal needs a new mounting bracket so I've removed the assembly. I've powered up the quad in house to see the LEDs, everything is fine, full satellite lock of at least 7, steady green flash. It's ready to fly, and without the camera I cannot use the App to see number of satellites, etc...Correct? My Phantom does not show up in my WiFi list.

    That's right, you need the 3 devices combo to use the Vision App (WiFi Module, Gimbal+Camera and Range Extender). Won't work without any of them, but if you want telemetry info showing in your app, you can do the wiring tweak. That's what Mako79 once told me:

    If you're gonna be without your Gimbal for long time, this would be a nice option.
