    Hi Guys,

    I am new to the phantom series, i have a FC40 for several months now... just loving it!
    But the WIFI video is a bit crappy to get long FPV range (even i have a 14dbi extender).

    I have a SJ4000 cam (the GOPRO clone!), the questions is:

    - Does someone have experience with the SJ4000 cam on a gimbal? (size / weight is a little bit different then the gopro)
    - My aim is to fly FPV long distance, what kind of 2.4G RX/TX do you guys recommend?

    Thanks a lot!:)

    Exactly the same setup I have considered!

    However, yet to figure out:

    -how to connect SJ4000 to transmitter
    -how to connect receiver to ipad/android device
    -which application to use to control video/photo

    Walkera´s ilook combo looks good as well, but it uses 5.8ghz. Do not wanna risk losing the control

    -Probably can't (I haven't seen it done successfully)
    -Can't
    -Can't

    The ipad/android interface for FPV and Phantom control will only work with the proprietary setup DJI put on the P2V/P2V+

    Did you get this to work? I used the cable from Banggood, connected green to green, white to white and black to black in the transmitter cable. Not yet able to see video

    Depends which version of the sj4000 you have. Mine was bought in May so it didn't work. Supposedly it is possible with the newer sj4000 and updated software. Regardless you would have to modify the physical mounting to the gimbal and the buttons get in the way. Better off picking up a go pro white as it's quite a bit of a headache.
