    My dad just got a used phantom 2 v1 (dj6). He has a spare v2 radio (pvt581) and I was trying to bind them together. Its as if the v1 copter doesn't see the v2 radio. Is this true or am I doing something wrong?

    You turn on the phantom and turn off the controller then push the little red button under the quad, turn on the controller and push the button a 2nd time.

    Or is it because one is 2.4ghz and the other 5.8ghz ?

    Someone will chime in shortly, its lunchtime for some.

    After reading the back of the transmitters, I realized the new radio is a 5.8 and the copter is 2.4. Ugh. Sorry
