    There should be an aux power lead (grey/red) on the Phantom that you're probably already using to power your gimbal. If so, you can split that power lead off to the transmitter and power that as well.

    If the power connection for your gimbal is using the common JST plugs (red), you can split the power off with one of these: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/index. ... cts_id=536

    From there, you can connect that to your Immersion Tx with one of these: http://www.getfpv.com/fat-shark-2p-mole ... cable.html

    Readymaderc sells that 2nd cable too, but they happen to be out of stock right now.

    Yeah you'll need to know which type of connectors are on the BP to know which option to order.

    By the way, thanks to you both. I appreciate the help for a newbie

    There's a lot of conversation for phantom 2 but not much coming in search for phantom 1.1.1

    No problem! Just to be safe, confirm that the antenna connectors on your BP look like the ones in the bottom left of this diagram: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=22736

    WHOO HOOO

    Monitor arrived today.

    Plugs on the monitor are Female RPSMA
    Plug on the transmitter is Female SMA

    Based on that, what do you recommend for antennas?
