    This is my first post and having read through some other posts here,it looks like people are really helpful here.

    I have recently purchased a P2 and I'm getting in some practice before installing my FPV gear. My question is what do people think about putting the FPV transmitter inside the case of the P2? I have seen various videos on YouTube about doing it for the P1, but none for the P2.

    I was wondering what peoples views are on the best placement for my RCimmersion transmitter? I guess I thought it would be safer inside the case if there is enough room.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Matt

    what power is the transmitter ? if it's 600mw it might get really hot.
    I have mine on the outside as most of the transmitters need to be to facilitate the antenna

    The transmitter should not be put inside the case.
    They all get either warm and some get hot and ALL need free air movement so inside the case is a no-no.
