    Hi,

    I have stage 2 already installed on my Vision 2 and recenlty purchased the additional antennas of the stage 3 kit. I have 4 antennas and the necessary cables. Now I am looking for videos of the installation. I heard it's a bit tricky due some glue on wifi board. The only video (it's not an actual video anyway, just screenshots) is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMEsdj2 ... 4sycX.dpuf

    Does anyone have additional instructions/tips?

    Thanks

    If you are going to install 5.8ghz antennas on the bird I would recommend buying a new receiver from Ebay with the antenna detached already. I tried scraping off black glue without success. Had to buy a new receiver and then solder splice antenna wire anyway. Soldering those extra thin antenna wire is a delicate job.http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJI-Phantom-2-V ... 339d2a614e

    For installing 2.4ghz antenna for the camera Ben7seven has a good video on youtube.

    How easy is it to replace the receiver? Does it require removing a lot of parts?

    I got the receiver board from ebay. Now what :) Can anyone point me to installation tutorials? Are the wifi antennas installed on the wifi module inside the bird or the camera?

    Thanks

    My stage3 kit came with mmcx connectors. Does anyone know where I am supposed to use these? According to this tutorial video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D-Hb95MMN8 ) I need u.fl-rp/sma cables for the birdside video upgrade. Is that true? If so, what are the mmcx connectors for?

    Thanks

    I recently replaced my receiver board in my Vision. It's quite easy, and I followed that video above.
