    Seen a few posts where people have been asking how to fit some of these items inside the phantom.

    As much as I was thinking they wouldn't fit all together, I now have all of these accessories connected inside without any issue, and as I had it open, thought I should take a few pics to show the basic positioning inside my phantom to help anyone having any problems.

    The biggest problem for me was the **** canbus connectors and cables which seem much larger than they need to be.[​IMG]

    EDIT: why doesn't this forum resize images on page render / upload :?:

    It gets cozy really fast in there.

    This is how I installed my PMU and iOSD:

    Funny you mentioned that, I added the 2.4 data link yesterday to what I already had and I'm NOT going to show you how it all fits. "Cozy" is not the word that comes to mind, more like "Weight Watchers".

    I'm trying to find the option in the forums that sends out an email alert the moment you pass 1600g ;)

    LOL it's not too bad with all that kit, haven't weighed it yet, but i'm getting aruond 8 mins with 2200mah and 9443 props and seems to fly fine. That'll do me. Haven't tested since i've added iOSD Mini, but doubt that'll take much flight time off.

    Re: iOSD Mini, V2 PMU, 2.4ghz datalink all inside Phantom 1.

    I'm wanting to add FPV to my 1.1.1 and either put in the iOSD at the same time or a little later.

    I've searched and found conflicting answers and got cross-eyed and a headache from trying to track the answer to this question down:

    With the Naza-M V2 that my 1.1.1 has, do I need to install the PMU in order to use the iOSD? I just need a simple answer and instructions on how to put everything together.

    Thanks

    Yes, either that or the upgrade board.

    If you use the V2 PMU, the GPS unplugs from the naza and goes into V2 PMU, the iOSD Mini connects to that and the v2 PMU connects to the original naza.

    iosd mini requires canbus. To get canbus on your 1.1.1, you either get a pmu-v2, or you get the phantom upgrade board and brush up on your soldering skills. The pmu is the easier, heavier solution, the upgrade board is cleaner/lighter but more diy.

    Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for, a clear definitive answer.

    The iOSD Mk2 requires CANbus as well, so you'd need the same. Mk2 is a big, heavy box though (~60-70g installed) and generally quite overkill for most Phantom applications. It'll be a tight fit in the shell. It's probably worth considering if you really need the mk2 before going down that road.

    +1

    Unless you absolutely need to be able to switch between two camera feeds and can deal with the significant weight and size penalty, the iOSD mini is almost always the better choice for the Phantom.

    The iOSD II's wiring is bulky as well beyond just the weight, adding 2 more XT60 connectors to the pile along with a bunch of 18ga power lead.

    LOL, if mine gets up into the 1600g range I'm getting a trailer hitch for extra batteries. Wonder if Dewey could mold me a hitch? Hmmmmm...
