    I've known a little about Ground Station for a while but never really took a hard look at it before. Today I got to see a product demo and I liked it! I'm running a Phantom 2 Vision with a Taco gimbal; will Ground Station work with my Phantom? Thanks!

    The Taco Gimbal is relatively easy to install considering it doesn't really have directions. LOL It has a couple of pictures you have to look at and do some figuring out for yourself where some wires go. Lets just say, if I could figure it out, most of you guys should be able to handle it no problem! LOL

    To install the Ground Station hardware, will I have to crack the case of my Phantom Vision 2 to get at the canbus wiring?

    A couple of things to clear up:
    - There's the hardware-based GroundStation and then there's the GroundStation built in to the Vision App.
    - You can already use the latter, no need for extra hardware.
    - The hardware-based version adds some more features.
    - The P2V/P2V+ doesn't have all the external ports that a P2 has.

    Missed the vision part of the post, sorry ignore my ramblings, you just activate GS in the app for your quad.
