    Hi, thinking of purchasing the phantom 2 to use instead of the fc 40? Good idea? I have the zamuse gimbal also, just want to know the best and cheapest way of adding fpv and telemetry to it? Is this better way than buying vision 2? Any help would be gratefully recieved

    the video a gopro captures is way better than the camera on the Vision and Vision+ models.
    adding FPV is easy, there are plug and play cables for both transmitter families (ImmersionRC vs Boscam) and you need to add an iOSD Mini for telemetry info.
    then you just need a receiver, antennas, and maybe a monitor mount.
    check out my stickythread in the FPV forum it may help

    personally I think a regular Phantom 2 and adding FPV is a much more powerful, modular, and upgradeable system than the Vision/+
