    Hey,

    I just installed a FPV kit on my phantom 2 with a Flytrex V2, mini iOSD, immersion 600 transmitter, and the DJI FPV hub.
    I went out for a test flight, waited for the green lights and took off. The Phantom immediately started a death wobble so I set it down. I recalibrated the gps successfully and tried again. Same thing, death wobble on take off.

    Any ideas on what could be causing this?

    Thanks for your help,
    -Joe

    Just checked the GPS antenna and found no cracks. Back to the think tank.

    Does your FPV use 5.8 Ghz? If so, that is your problem because the Phantom 2 uses 5.8 Ghz to control it.

    Thanks for the reply but my Phantom flies on 2.4 GHz. The plain Phantom 2 is the only one in the line up that uses it.

    I'm pretty sure I figured it out. I removed the Flytrex Core as that was the only thing with a direct connection to the gyro unit (which I meant to say in the first post. Not GPS) and was able to fly. I am going to get in contact with Flytrex and see if I can get a replacement unit and wire adapter.
