    Hi,

    I've had this problem a couple of times.. Here's my sequence

    - Turn on controller
    - Turn on GoPro
    - Turn on Phantom

    What happens is 2 seconds later the gopro turns off, I power the phantom off, I try to boot the gopro but nothing is happening
    I thought the phantom charges the gopro, do i need to charge the gopro first ? am I doing this in the wrong order? Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you

    I haven't installed my gimbal or Go Pro yet, but I didn't think the phantoms powers it. For one, the battery voltages are different. I say charge your GoPro's battery and try it again.

    It does(kinda) charge it but it's not enough power. You have to charge up the gopro and don't rely on the phantom to charge it
