    I'm about 2 months in as a P2 NV owner, and just received the ImmersionRC 600 and iOSD Mini today. I've seen a number of install videos and such,,and all I have to say is...

    DARN, these things are SMALL! I know they have to be to fit in/on the Phantom, but I was just REALLY surprised on their size. I couldn't tell from the videos....

    I'll be doing the install in about an hour or so, I got the cable to make it a solderless install, so it should go well.

    Wish me luck!!

    lol... Thanks...

    I got them installed, but when I turned on the Phantom to check firmware on the iOSD, the Zenmuse H4-3D gimbal seemed like it was calibrating, and never stopped... a little worried... going to get the GoPro and throw it on to see if that's why...

    EDIT: Connected the GoPro, and all is well... now I wait till tomorrow when my Black Pearl comes in...

    Glad to hear its working well. One note though, never power up a Zenmuse without a go pro in it. You can damage/ burn out the motors very quickly if you are not careful, it seems you lucked out this time but it is to be avoided. The initializing/jerking you saw was the motors trying to balance something which is not there... they reach their limit and bounce back.

    Oh crap! I never knew that about the Zenmuse. I've kept it on there since then, so no worries there. But if by chance I fly without the GoPro I'll unplug the Zenmuse.

    Thanks for you're reply!!
