    To the lightened DJI LightBridge setup on the P2V+?

    The reason why I ask is 2 fold:

    Transmitting data from other cameras would make it a very flexible platform for aerial photography. It would allow the mounting of a Sony RX-100 or similar with ready to go FPV. As far as I understand it, there's a micro HDMI plug on the unit at the back ... and being able to line up your shots would greatly simplify the purchases someone would need to make to do that job easily.

    Another reason is that I've seen a lot of you with broken cameras and the only solution that I'm aware of is to buy a whole new unit for ~700usd. For some that might not be a feasible solution ... and I'm not sure, but if the replacement unit comes with a mini-lightbridge then there might be a lot of spares on the market!

    Isn't it just a micro USB socket?*

    *as far as I know...

    Micro USB and Micro HDMI look pretty similar, but if it is Micro USB is that where the camera cable plugs in?
