    Hi All,
    After a long cold winter I am excited for some more flight time with my Phantom.

    I ordered a 7" LCD monitor to try my luck at a ground station. It seems to come with bare leads for power (red and black). This may be a silly question, but how can I use my extra Phantom batteries to power the monitor? Do i I get an XT-60 cable and cut/patch it to the bare leads?

    Or, should i get some other type of battery with different specs to power the 7" LCD?

    Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
