    I believe it works with all phantoms,
    Super easy install
    ( go to flytrex.com ) they have a nice tutorial video )

    It requires you to OPEN the phantom up, Unhook
    GPS cable from main circuit board, plug in NEW
    cable ( you buy seperatly from flytrex ) 1 wire with
    ( 3 ) ends on it, 1st end into GPS plug on main circuit board
    ( the one you just unhooked GPS from ) 2nd end you replug GPS
    Into this new slot ) the GPS plug you unhooked above,
    And the 3rd and final end , plugs into flytrex core 2!

    I velcro'ed mine to phantom belly, required me to ( disassemble flytrex plug end )
    To allow wire to pass through landing gear ) then reassembled plug back together!

    Some people mount it inside, or cut a hole for the wire to pass through, ect.

    Here isy install :

    Yes it works on the FC40 I have one on mine. and like the above poster said its supper easy to install tho you do have to open the shell. Just be sure to order a phantom cable with it.

    Here is one of the videos on how to install it.

    Yes,
    No LIVE FEED, you take out SD CARD, plug onto PC, upload your mission,
    To flytrex, then you can review, earn badges, ect!
    If you get. " DASHWARE " you can add several other really
    Cool things, like speedometer , ect, right onto your video!
    Really, really cool!

    Take care, Fly safe!
