    Help please! I bought the DJI 2.4G Data Link system for my Phantom1.1.1 with Naza V2. It came with a BTU, CAN HUB, IOSD and of course the DATA LINK TX & RX. I was told that I would NOT need a PMU but now that I un boxed the system and tried to connect it, looks as though I will need a Naza PMU-V2. Is this correct? I just ordered the PMU today just incase. The data link will not plug straight into the Naza V2 on my Phantom Version 1.1.1. Can someone take a picture of their setup and post it if possible? I really need this to work by Tuesday of next week. Any info on hooking it up would be sooooo appreciated! Thank you very much.

    ActionChopper, your choices for adding a canbus are the method zenith linked above, or the PMU you ordered. Note that to add a canbus port manually using the instructions in that vid, your 1.1.1 will have to have the upgrade board installed (which may already be the case, if you have a Zenmuse on it as well). The upgrade board + DIY canbus is the lighter and cleaner option, but with your timecrunch you may have to use the PMU for now at least.

    Note that you do not need to use the canbus hub right now that came with your bundle. You can just plug the iOSD in to the canbus port you add yourself or via PMU, and then plug the Data Link module in to the extra canbus port on the side of the iOSD.

    Thank you my friends! You helped a bunch! I do not have the upgrade board so i'll just use the PMU when it gets here. You guys rock!
