    I just purchased my second Phantom 2, my first is a Phantom 2 Vision, my second a standard Phantom 2 with no zenmuse gimbal.

    The LED light on my Vision transmitter turns on green and beeps twice, but the standard Phantom 2 is a solid red with no beeps at all.

    Also the standard Phantom 2 has a lever on the back of the transmitter which the Vision did not come with, what is this used for? Is the red / green LED'S FCC / CE mode?

    Thanks in advance.

    The lever on the back is to control a gimbal pan up/down. They should have added this to the Vision units.


    Also my P1 is red as well.

    A common question for those moving from vision to p2. Red is normal on p2 rc. There is no FCC mode as is the case with the vision.

    So you mean I can actually tilt the camera (when I splurge for the zen muse gimbal) without having to look at the phone?! THAT'S AWESOME! And yes, they absolutely should have included this with the Vision, this would make the Vision that much better.

    Thanks for your help!

    FYI there is a hack to make the 7th channel lever work with the Vision. See the thread in the Vision section...
