    I currently have the Phantom 2 Vision +. I am planning on purchasing the Drone Experts quick release and a zenmuse gimbal. Here is my problem.
    I currently have the GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I was assuming that the H4-3D gimbal which should start shipping soon, would work. I know, I know, ***-u-me.

    Turns out that the Zenmuse H4-3D will NOT support the Hero4 Silver edition according to all contacts with DJI that I have made.

    So, My next choice.
    1) Try my luck with the H3-3D and the GoPro4 Silver
    2) Get the H3-3D and purchase a new Hero3+ Black edition.
    3) Get the H4-3D and purchase a new Hero4 Black
    or
    4) Wait and see if the H4-3D does indeed support the Silver Hero4 with just some calibration adjustments.
    5) Just use the Vision + as is and save the $

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Patrick

    If I were in your shoes, I'd just get the H3-3D first. It works with my Hero 4 Silvers (I have two, works with them both) just fine. If for some reason it doesn't work for you, THEN buy the 3+ Black. No need to go buy another GoPro just yet.

    Or I'd just wait to see if the H4-3D works with the 4 Silver. I mean, officially, the 4 Silver is not supposed to work with the H3-3D. Neither is the 4 Black. But people have been successfully using both the 4 Silver and Black with the H3-3D just fine.

    Thanks for the advice. Probably just wait and see.
